Ambassador Rocha's Condolences Letter on the Passing of Mr. Armando Spencer

Washington DC, 7 de Junho de 2016

A Familia de Armando Maria da Silva Spencer,

Foi com muito pesar que, na Embaixada de Cabo Verde em Washington DC,  tomamos conhecimento do falecimento do Sr. Armando da Silva Spencer, talentoso desportista Caboverdiano, primeiro como futebolista e, em seguida, como treinador de varios clubes de futebol nas comunidades Lusa e Caboverdiana, principalmente em Massachusetts e em Newark. Destacamos tambem o seu activismo social junto de jovens e da comunidade Caboverdiana em geral.

Assim, em nome dos membros da Embaixada  e em meu nome pessoal queria apresentar as mais sinceras condolências e simpatia a familia enlutada, bem como a todos os que, nesta hora de tristeza, sentem a perda de um ente querido.

Com os meus cumprimentos de estima e reconforto.

Statement from the Government of Cabo Verde regarding the attacks in Monte Tchota

 

CHEFIA DO GOVERNO

STATEMENT

The Government of Cabo Verde regrets to inform that the military detachment in the Transmission Center of Monte Txota in Rui Vaz– Municipality of Sao Domingos, was attacked and eleven people lost their lives.

The victims are 8 military personnel and 3 civilians, male, between the ages of 20 and 51 years.

A soldier affected to this military detachment has disappeared and there is strong evidence of his involvement in the events.

Of the three civilians, 2 are Spanish nationals who were in Cabo Verde to provide technical assistance to the Center and 1 Cabo Verdean national who was also working with the Spanish team.

Following this attack, nine rifles and ammunition were recovered inside a vehicle in the area of Cidadela –Palmarejo.

The Government deeply regrets this tragedy and ensures that all assistance and solidarity will be provided to the victims’ families. It recommends calm and serenity to the population.

The Government also clarifies that there were no shootings in Praia, contrary to what is being disseminated and that airports are operating normally, having never been closed.

There is no evidence of any connection between these facts and drug trafficking. Personal motivations are presumed to be at the origin of these events, which exclude a terrorist attack against the State of Cabo Verde.

The authorities are taking all necessary measures for proper clarification of this case.

 

Portuguese Version

O Governo lamenta informar que o destacamento militar em serviço no Centro Retransmissor de Monte Txota, em Rui Vaz - Concelho de São Domingos, foi atacado e em resultado onze pessoas perderam a vida.

As vítimas são do sexo masculino, com idades compreendidas entre os 20 e os 51 anos, sendo 08 militares e 03 civis.

Um soldado afeto ao próprio destacamento encontra-se desaparecido e há fortes indícios de que o mesmo esteja envolvido nos acontecimentos.

Dos três civis, 02 são técnicos de nacionalidade espanhola, que se encontravam em Cabo Verde a prestar serviços no local e 01 de nacionalidade cabo-verdiana que também trabalhava com a equipa espanhola.

Na sequência deste ataque, foram subtraídas nove espingardas e munições, as quais já foram recuperadas no interior de uma viatura, encontrada na zona da Cidadela- Palmarejo.

O Governo lamenta e muito esta tragédia e garante que todo o apoio e solidariedade serão prestados aos familiares das vítimas. Recomenda calma e serenidade à população.

Esclarece que não se verificaram tiroteios na cidade da Praia, contrariamente ao que está sendo veiculado e que os aeroportos estão a funcionar normalmente, não tendo sido nunca fechados.

Não existem indícios de ligação destes fatos com o narcotráfico.

Presume-se estarem na origem destes acontecimentos motivações pessoais, que excluem a ideia de atentado contra o Estado de Cabo Verde.

As autoridades estão a tomar todas as medidas que se impõem para o esclarecimento cabal do caso.
