Luanda, Luanda - The provincial attorney of the Republic, Luis de Assunçao Pedro Mota Liz, defended a ‘’urgent’’ reform on the remand arrest Law 18-A/92 "in order to adapt it to the new constitutional framework. Mota Liz claimed that when speaking on "Remand Arrest – Procedure Coercion Measure, Alternative Measures to Remand Custody." The lawyer defended that the reform should include the adoption of a philosophy that favours freedom over the prison. In his opinion, the detention should be the last "ratio" of a set of precautionary measures less restrictive, appropriate to a successful completion of criminal justice, protecting human dignity, without prejudice to the Community interest. "The modern criminal procedure law is characterized by the principle that the use of limitation of freedom of the people, by the remand should be limited to a maximum and not to be maintained where it can be replaced by another measure," he asserted.
