Kinshasa, February 20st, 2023 (CPA).- A memorandum of understanding for the channelling of judicial revenues was signed on Monday between the Council of State and the Savings Bank of Congo (CADECO).
« This protocol that we have concluded has as its main objective the channelling of judicial revenues to the public treasury as well as the fight against corruption committed by the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Tshisekedi », declared Mrs Marthe Odio Bonde, first president of the Council of State.
For her, the collection by a counter that will be erected in the facilities of this judicial institution, will put an end to the evasion of state revenues because any financial transaction must now be accompanied by a CADECO slip and proof of payment, added Marthe Odio.
For his part, the Attorney General of the Council of State, Iluta Ikombe Yamama, welcomed the signing of this protocol which, according to him, will now bring a new wind in the collection and channelling of state revenues to provide it with the means for its action.
« This partnership will put an end to the draining of revenues and is also in line with the aim of supporting CADECO which is currently facing a war against other banking institutions and needs to be supported for obvious reasons, » said Iluta Ikombe Yamama.
He called on the clerks who, according to him, the only ones are entitled to collect court fees, to show professionalism, for the success of the said MOU.
Earlier, the General Director of CADECO, Ms Juliette Mbambu Mughole, welcomed the signing of this partnership which constitutes a step without return in the management of public finances.
« This partnership will allow CADECO to play its role in the collection and channelling of revenue from the judicial sector to the Central Bank of Congo, but also to put an end to the system of circulating money in the hands of individuals, » she added.
She took the opportunity to request and obtains from the first president of the Council of State, a room that can house her service, because the counter opened at the Palace of Justice can serve other purposes.
