    Indeed, the economic and financial implications stem from the fact that there are both monogamous and polygamous families. On the polygamous families, conflicts erases when the rights of heirs and surviving spouses are in doubt. “The reality of informality should lead us to think of how, in the formal legal point of view, we can integrate this dimension”, acknowledged.

    “ The postmortem successions put us in fact a challenge, when many asks for deceased customer balances. There are legal entities created b the state that everyone should go to. Due to banking secrecy, bank cannot grant balances than to their holders”, she said.

    “It is important that, while we don’t face any death situations, families look for information and formalize their relationship. However, we also understand, and is on their right, that certain clients hide the family how much they have in their accounts”.

    “It is their right. What should be done in cases of death is that the family acquires the culture of going to legal entities to get the information to banks, courts or the public prosecutor Attorney “, She advised. In general, the panelists to the economic program of the National Radio of Angola, on Tuesday, recognized the need of public authority’s intervention, especially when there is involved protection of children’s rights.
