In a statement signed by the president of the UNITA Parliamentary Group, Liberty Chiyaka, the largest opposition party questions the interests behind the repeated attacks that citizen Ludmila Pinto, wife of journalist and activist Cláudio Emanuel Pinto has suffered, being a victim for the third time , of a stabbing on November 21st.
In the statement to which the Kianda’s mail had access, UNITA holds the Government accountable and says that “the regime has once again re-edited the climate of terror and fear, political persecution, serious violations of human rights with assassination attempts and selective dismissals and, more recently, assaults and stabbings of relatives of activists and journalists”, and reinforces: “everything under the conniving and protective gaze of the moral and material authors”.
The last attack on the wife of “Cláudio In” took place when Ludmila Pinto was leaving the Kero supermarket, in Kilamba, according to the report. Kianda’s mail previously published. It will have taken 15 points.
The second occurred on October 18, when a man approached and cut his wife’s leg with a sharp object (scalpel). According to the note, the security guard accompanying her also failed to prevent the attack.
The first will have taken place in the residence itself, on September 20th. According to the statement, Ludmila Pinto was tortured, beaten, had her arms cut off and even threatened to kill her 1-year-old son (23 months), when the journalist was not at home.
In the note, the UNITA Parliamentary Group asks “who is interested in intimidating and conditioning the family of a journalist and civic activist? Why don’t the competent state bodies act? Why don’t the SIC, the PGR and the State Information Services act?”
And he appeals: “It is necessary to hold the State and the agents responsible for the safety of people accountable”, concludes the statement.
