This afternoon, at tea-time, I was updated on this (see previous post). Sr Belchior’s wife has now been allowed to speak to her husband and to deliver some food for him. But of course, unless she can give it to him in person, it could be risky for him to eat it via the hands of the authorities. Who knows what might end up in the dish. Notably, it would appear that the men who are guarding Sr Belchior just so happen to be from the presidential guard; and the investigators who have come from Luanda are not, as one would expect them to be, from DNIC (the department of national criminal investigations, whose site is sadly under construction at the moment, and which shares its title with peers in Argentina I note!). Some are therefore speculating that the investigators are also the president’s men.
