Angola Jails Former Central Bank Officials for Fraud, RNA Says

An Angolan court sentenced five former central bank officials to up to eight years in prison for stealing $5 million from the bank, Radio Nacional de Angola reported, citing Judge Januario Jose.

The officials will also be required to repay money taken and forfeit property, the Luanda-based broadcaster today cited Jose as saying.

The case is part of alleged fraud of about $160 million that was transferred to overseas accounts in 2009.
