Attorney General’s Office maintains coercive measure to musician Robertinho

Luanda – The Attorney General’s Office (PGR) has decided to maintain the coercive measure imposed on musician Robertinho detained since last May on charges of drug trafficking, said Wednesday in Luanda, the director of the office of Institutional Communication and Press Office of the PGR, A�lvaro JoAPound o.

The artist responds to a case opened in November 2017 by the Criminal Investigation Service (SIC) for carrying two suitcases, one with nine kilograms of cocaine.

Robertinho, who had been detained at the 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, claims that the bags would have been delivered by a stranger in Brazilian territory.

In statements to the press, A�lvaro JoAPound o informed that further investigations are in progress to determine new evidence and as soon as it is concluded the process will be submitted to the Court.

Born in Malanje, Robertinho began singing at the age of 18, in the Marcal neighborhood, in Luanda.

He emerged in Angola in the 1980s and in 1991 published his first album “Joana MuKua di Fuba””.
