Vicente, who was the president of Angolan national oil company Sonangol at the time of the alleged crimes, is accused of bribery, money laundering and document falsification.

A trial court has also ordered former Portugese prosecutor, Orlando Figueira, who was arrested in 2016, to be tried, on suspicion of receiving money from Vicente.
