Lusa - Business News - Mozambique: South Africa says Chang's arrest does not affect bilateral ties




Johannesburg, Jan. 14 (Lusa) - South Africa's minister of foreign affairs said that the arrest of Manuel Chang, Mozambique's former minister of finance, does not affect bilateral ties as the South African president meets with his Mozambican counterpart.
“Interpol and South Africa have a protocol whereby they can ask us to stop a passenger from passing through our ports, providing a reason,” said the minister, adding: “If we are satisfied with the reason, we act, and this was what happened with the former minister of Mozambique [Chang].”
The minister responded to news from the South Africa press that accounted for a diplomatic problem between the two countries due to the arrest of Chang, accused by the US justice of having received bribes under the hidden loans to Mozambican companies.
South Africa’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, on Monday travelled to Maputo to have bilateral talks with his Mozambican counterpart, Filipe Nyusi.
“South African and Mozambique have had excellent economic, political and cultural ties since the time of the fight against apartheid,” the statement said.
In addition to Chang, the investigation carried out by the US justice also led to the arrest of three former bankers of Credit Suisse, in London, and a Lebanese negotiator at Privinvest, in New York.
The country's hidden debt scandal involved loans made to three state companies: the Mozambique tuna company EMATUM, Mozambique Asset Management (MAM) and ProIndicus, which are under the ministry of defence and presented projects related to maritime safety, using Credit Suisse and VTB as their financial partners.
