And in the note, all border services are called upon to arrest those concerned and pass them on under good guidance to the staff of the Directorate – General in the event of non-compliance with this prohibition.

The Financial Supervisory Authority (IGF) accuses Atou Matubuana of embezzling more than $ 5 million, or more than 10 billion francs in Congo, the money intended for civil and military services in security and justice. His employees are suspected of complicity in this hijacking.
