ASN News Namibian report says LAM Mozambique Airlines ERJ-190 crash was pilot suicide

Namibian investigators concluded that the November 2013 accident of a LAM Mozambique Airlines ERJ-190 was caused by intentional actions by the captain.

The report states: “The inputs to the auto flight systems by the person believed to be the captain, who remained alone on the flight deck when the person believed to be the co-pilot requested to go to the lavatory, caused the aircraft to deviate from cruise flight to a sustained controlled decent and subsequent collision with the terrain.”

There's a link to a local version of the interim report:

But I can't find the final report referred to in the ASN article.
