The new laboratory will enhance Mozambique’s capacity to produce evidence crucial for criminal investigations and legal proceedings, Interior Minister Pascoal Ronda said Thursday .

He added that the modern technological means used in committing crimes necessitate specialized tools for effective response, and this laboratory is a key part of the government’s efforts to modernize SERNIC.

Director General of SERNIC Nelson Rego said the laboratory will help overcome limitations in investigating various types of crimes, including drug trafficking and financial fraud, which often involve complex electronic evidence.
