NGOs Deny Benefiting from Zim Diamonds

Two NGOs reject charges that they asked for one percent of the revenues generated by the sale of the Marange diamonds

Global Witness and Partnership Africa Canada (PAC) have ‘categorically rejected’ charges that they asked for one percent of the revenues generated by the sale of the Marange diamonds.

Global Witness campaigner, Annie Dunnebacke, denied such an offer was made by her organisation or any of the other NGOs, adding that the offer to place the one percent proceeds in a protection fund is ‘outrageous’.

Dunnebacke points out that, “The violence that continues to plague Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond fields – and the government’s blatant disregard for KP rules – indisputably signify that no exports should take place now.”
