Isabel dos Santos

Angola's ambassador to Germany, Alberto Correia Neto, pointed to the businesswoman Isabel dos Santos as one of the people who benefited from State funds.

In an interview to LAC radio's "Café da Manha", the diplomat criticized the attitude of Isabel dos Santos, who, according to him, intends to take legal action against the State.

"Isabel (dos Santos) does not want to listen to anybody, and she's making more and more basic mistakes". I do not understand how a person who has benefited so much from State funds has now the courage to take action against the Government or the Angolan State! I don't understand it!", said Alberto Neto, referring to the actions of President João Lourenço against nepotism. The ambassador also said that the business woman is being badly advised by the "Portuguese lawyers".

Asked what could happen if Isabel dos Santos persists, Alberto Neto said that the Government can not stand idly by.
