Os jornalistas portugueses estão cada vez mais preocupados com o crescente investimento e influência de Angola em seu país. Estimulados pelos petrodólares e diamantes, poderosos interesses angolanos lançaram-se em uma onda de compras em sua antiga potência colonizadora. O capital angolano investido em Portugal aumentou 35 vezes na última década, segundo as informações da imprensa. Em um processo muitas vezes descrito mordazmente em Lisboa como uma forma de "colonização inversa", os angolanos não estão apenas devorando porções significativas nas áreas bancária, de telecomunicações e empresas de energia de Portugal, como também investindo no setor de mídia.

Portuguese media chilled by Angolan involvement

Portuguese journalists are increasingly concerned by Angola's growing investment and influence in their country. Buoyed by petrodollars and diamonds, powerful Angolan interests have been indulging in a buying spree in their former colonial power. Angolan capital invested in Portugal increased 35 times in the past decade, according to news reports. In a process often acidly described in Lisbon as a form of "reverse colonization," Angolans have gobbled up not only significant chunks of Portugal's banking, telecommunications, and energy companies, but also invested in the Portuguese media sector.

Legislation for Internet security can quickly turn into a weapon against the free press. Cybercrime laws are intended to extend existing penal codes to the online world, but they can easily be broadened to criminalize standard journalistic practices. By Danny O'Brien

Attaques contre la presse en 2011: Les lois contre la cybercriminalité: le piège à journalistes

Les législations soutenant la sécurité sur Internet peuvent rapidement se transformer en une arme contre la presse libre. Les lois sur la cybercriminalité étendent les codes pénaux du monde en ligne, mais elles peuvent facilement être élargies à criminaliser les activés journalistiques de base. Par Danny O'Brien

Attacks on the Press 2010: Angola

Top Developments
• Legislation criminalizes coverage that insults president, state institutions.
• Three top papers purchased by mysterious corporation. Coverage grows timid.

Key Statistic
2: Journalists killed in 2010, one a Togolese sports reporter, killed in soccer team ambush.


President José Eduardo dos Santos led one of the world's fastest-growing economies, but he faced criticism over social inequalities, corruption, and press freedom violations. Capitalizing on booming oil production and diamond mining, his government invested a reported US$1 billion to host the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in January. But the soccer tournament, which the government saw as an opportunity to enhance its international image, was marred when separatist guerrillas ambushed the Togolese national team, killing two people, including a journalist, and exposing the precarious security situation in the restive enclave of Cabinda. Dos Santos, in power since 1979, and his ruling Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) sought to tamp down on independent reporting of the ambush. By mid-year, a corporate entity whose principals were not disclosed had purchased three of the country's leading independent newspapers and toned down their coverage.

Attaques contre la presse en 2010: L'Angola

Principaux Développements
• Une loi criminalise tout reportage jugé outrageant envers le président, les institutions de la République.
• Trois principaux journaux indépendants achetés par une société anonyme. Leur ligne éditoriale devient timide.

Statistique Cle
2 journalistes tués en 2010, dont un reporter sportif togolais tué dans une embuscade contre l'équipe nationale de football du Togo.


Le président José Eduardo dos Santos, qui dirige une des économies les plus dynamiques du monde, mais il a été critiqué pour les inégalités sociales, la corruption et les violations de la liberté de la presse dans son pays. Capitalisant sur la production pétrolière et l'extraction de diamant en plein essor, son gouvernement a investi 1 milliard de dollars pour accueillir en janvier la Coupe d'Afrique des nations (CAN) de football. Cependant, la CAN que le gouvernement considérait comme une occasion de redorer son image au niveau international, a été entachée par un attentat terroriste contre un convoi de l'équipe nationale togolaise dans l'enclave de Cabinda agitée. L'embuscade, revendiquée par des guérillas séparatistes a couté la vie à deux personnes, dont un journaliste, exposant ainsi la situation sécuritaire précaire. Dos Santos, au pouvoir depuis 1979, et son Mouvement populaire pour la libération de l'Angola (MPLA) a cherché à étouffer les reportages indépendants sur cette embuscade. En mi-2010, une société dont les capitaux n'ont pas été divulgués avait acheté trois des principaux journaux indépendants du pays, rendant timide leur couverture.

In Angola, censorship shrouds journalist’s killing

(Reuters/Amr Abdallah Dalsh)On January 8, while Angola was hosting the African Cup of Nations, the country made worldwide headlines after a deadly attack on the Togolese national soccer team, which left a coach and a journalist dead. With international attention turning to the story, a shroud of state censorship and self-censorship by the Angolan media obscured the factual circumstances of the attack and its aftermath.
