SEMANÁRIO ANGOLENSE, Luanda, Angola
The Chinese motorists have a great share-part in the increase of the number of casualties that if register in the Angolan highways, revealed a source of Department of the Interior to the SEMANÁRIO ANGOLENSE. According to the source, such Chinese, that majorly come to the country to the service of the Cabinet of National Reconstruction (GRN), that they usually drive vehicles and heavy machines, they are exempt of requirements the one that others expatriated they are subject for if they enable to drive in Angola.
For instance, while to the others are demanded that, in the period of three months, substitute the letter of foreign transport for the Angolan, going by a previous exam, the Asians don't submit the such demand. The facto of China to grant credits to Angola and of here to have their citizens to work, it cannot implicate that they are above the law, that all, without exception, they should accomplish. Any day still Chinese will be untouchable and they will begin to commit atrocities and, for the facto of here be under the parasol of GRN, they can think that they are unpunished.
This treatment differentiated that it is been to check to Chinese will encourage them the such. Attempt to episode that comes in that mat. Certain day, in a photographic house, in Sambizanga, (Luanda) a Chinese missed the respect the an official of the Police, that in the occasion he was to the in civillian clothes. Then, the police held the Asian for the pants, demanding that it accompanied him to the closest squad, but this, that he didn't speak Portuguese, and encouraged by a her relative that already here lives there is more time, he refused to accomplish the order, resisting.
The one that got express Portuguese made a phone call and he intended to give the cellular phone to the official of the Police so that he talked with the individual that was on the other side of the line, to the that the agent of the authority denied, insisting that expatriated would have him that accompanying. For badly of the sins, a patrol was passing through and the official made sign so that it stopped and after a conversation of this with the boss of the effectives of the vehicle, Chinese, that it also disobeyed to the order of arising for the vehicle, it was thrown for the chassis of this and they steered for the old 9th squad. Later we knew that Chinese that he speaks Portuguese had called for an Angolan of the sphere of the power that we didn't get to identify.
It is logical that if the official had assisted the phone call, the individual on the other side would give order so that he loosened Chinese, without mattering with the facto that this had hurt the official's of the Police dignity. And, unhappily, it is like this our country, where many of their citizens are impunity reviled by having expatriated that they enjoy the protection of elements affects to the power. At present, many Angolan they travel to China in businesses and we don't have news that our compatriots enjoy means or privileges. They have the same treatment that any other foreigners: tswaneses, Greek, Russian, Brazilian and other. To finish, an appeal to the motorists that circulate for the highways of Angola: open the eyes well and have a lot of caution when they come vehicles driven by Chinese. They are dangerous!
