So last week I posted something about the government ordering the closure of the UN's Office of the High Commission on Human Rights.

Today, AngoNoticias reports on this important clarification:
"Nunca existiu um escritorio do Alto Comissariado da ONU para os direitos humanos."
"There never was an Office of the High Commission on Human Rights [in Angola]."

That pretty much sums up Angolan journalism, right there.

Apparently there was a section for human rights in the old observing UN mission, but the government denies that it sent a memo asking it to close.
