More on the plundering of the Congo…

The Canadian Barrick Gold has subcontracted Caleb International, who has also partnered with Adastra. Caleb is run by Salim Saleh, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni's half-brother.
When Uganda withdrew from the Congo in 2002, Saleh began training paramilitary groups to help sustain the flow of minerals into Uganda.
Salim Saleh is also a shareholder in Catalyst Co. of Canada, which owns Uganda's Kaabong gold fields. Saleh also owns a stake of private military company Saracen, created by the mercenaries-for-hire firm Executive Outcomes.

Bechtel's Nexant Company is the prime contractor on the Uganda-Kenya pipeline project, which will probably transport petroleum out of the Semliki Basin of Lake Albert.
People associated with Bechtel include: former Secretary of State George Shultz; former Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger; and retired U.S.M.C. general Jack Sheehan (also a member of the Defense Policy Board at the Pentagon).
Riley P. Bechtel himself is on the Board of J.P. Morgan.

The subsidiary of Halliburton, Brown & Root, helped build a military base near Cyangugu, Rwanda on the Congo-Rwandan border. Brown and Root used this base and mercenaries from Military Professional Resources Inc. (MPRI) to train the RPF and Laurent Kabila's ADFL for the 1996 invasion of the Congo and the Rwandan army's re-invasion in 1998.

MPRI is based in Arlington, Virginia and is run by 36 retired U.S. generals. The Pentagon contracted MPRI for the African Crisis Responsive Initiative (ACRI). ACRI includes military training in guerrilla warfare to Ugandan officers at Fort Bragg, North Carolina in July 1996.
Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have accused Ugandan battalions trained by ACRI of rapes, murders, extortion, and beatings of Ugandan civilians.

In 1998, Ugandan soldiers used ACRI equipment in the invasion of the Congo.
In 1996, according to French intelligence, US Special Forces and mercenaries from MPRI participated in the murder of Rwandan Hutu refugees on the Oso River near Goma.

Tony Buckingham's Heritage Oil & Gas and PMC Sandline International work to manipulate the petroleum options around Lake Albert.
Buckingham is also affiliated with Branch Energy that is operating in the Great Lakes region.

An arms dealer in the region is the Indian-American Kotecha. Kotecha has substantial interests in South Kivu, and has been implicated in money laundering, coltan and diamonds.
After the first U.S.-sponsored invasion of the Congo in 1996, Kotecha has boasted of being the "United States Consulate" in South Kivu.

U.S.-based Phelps Dodge is involved in Katanga copper/cobalt mining projects with Lundin's Tenke Mining. Phelps Dodge director Douglas C. Yearly is also a director of Lockheed Martin.
The World Wildlife Fund partnered with USAID and CARE in "conservation" (acquisition) projects in over Congo, with CARE's "humanitarian" agenda also funded by Lockheed Martin.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has praised the great progress in preventing illegal mining in the Congo. In HRW’s 2005 report Ugandan officials and multi-national corporations were exposed to smuggle gold through local rebel militias (the FNI and FAPC). HRW accused the western companies Anglo-Ashanti Gold (headquartered in South Africa), and the Swedish Metalor.
For some reason HRW “forgot” to mention that Anglo-Ashanti is partnered with Anglo-American, owned by the Oppenheimer family and partnered with Canada-based Barrick Gold. London-based Anglo-American Plc. owns a 45% share in DeBeers, part of the gigantic Oppenheimer empire.
In one of those strange coincidences Sir Mark Moody-Stuart is a director of Anglo-American, a director of Royal Dutch/Shell and a member of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's Advisory Board.

The UN has “investigated” the corruption and crime in the Congo, but has “forgot” the executives of Adastra, Anglo-American, Sweden's Adolph Lundin (a friend of George H.W. Bush), who control mining concessions in Lubumbashi, Kolwezi and Mbuji Mayi areas in the Katanga (Shaba) and Kasai provinces: https://www.globalpolicy.org/component/ ... 33626.html

Barrick and Anglo American in the Congo

Post by Firestarter » Thu Jan 16, 2020 5:30 pm

Isn’t it strange how the Canadian commander of UNAMIR in Rwanda, General Romeo Dallaire, has been turned into a real “hero” for helping the RPF orchestrate the genocide? And that Canadian companies profit from the subsequent takeover of Zaire (the Democratic Republic of the Congo)?

In the following publication from the Executive Intelligence Review of Lyndon LaRouche is a long essay, called “George Bush's ‘Heart of Darkness’”, starting page 16.
It is from January 1997, so relatively short after the first invasion of Zaire, but before Laurent Kabila withdrew from his dirty deals with Western companies, the re-invasion (that later became Africa’s World War) and his assassination, after which his son Joseph Kabila became the new president of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
LaRouche argues that it were mainly British companies (in particular from its colony Canada) that profit from looting Zaire (Congo), even before Mobuto was forced out.

Belgium granted Zaire independence with a debt of about $5 billion. By the late 1980s, Zaire's debt had climbed to about $8 billion.
In the early 1990s, Zaire defaulted on most of its debt payments. So naturally the banks, backed by the World Bank, demanded that Zaire pay the debt, "democratise" its government and most importantly privatise its state-owned mining concerns.
In 2000 Congo’s debt had grown to $25.7 billion, which by 2018 was down to $7.2 billion.


Barrick Gold, Munk, Khashoggi
In 1974, Peter Munk became partners with arms-trafficking billionaire Adnan Khashoggi of Saudi Arabia, who became the main financer for Munk’s enterprise. According to Munk, their alliance was cemented at the London headquarters of Peninsular and Orient, whose hereditary boss was the third Earl of Inchcape (who was also a Director of British Petroleum).
Since this arrangement was sealed, Munk became member of the 1001 Club (founded by Prince Philip and Prince Bernhard) and a regular skiing partner of Crown Prince Charles, who attended the opening of a Munk factory outlet mall in Germany.

In 1985, Khashoggi used his Barrick stock as collateral to borrow $21 million for the illegal arms to Iran at the request of Oliver North (at the time there was an official U.S. arms embargo against Khomeini’s regime). Khashoggi made Donald Fraser, who allegedly provided the loan, president of Khashoggi’s Triad American holding company.
The Bank of Credit and Commerce International laundered money for the Iran arms sales. Barrick Gold Corp. co-founder Kamal Adham was prosecuted for fraud in the BCCI case, and fined $100 million.

The sister of David Gilmour, Peter Munk's business partner, had married into the Anglo-Dutch aristocratic Vansittart family. Vansittart used Sir Henry Keswick, and the Keswick’s merchant banking firm Jardine Matheson, to lift Munk’s career.

On 25 November 1986, US Attorney General Edwin Meese for some reason linked the Iran and Contra scandals. The next day, Munk announced an urgent restructuring plan, which kept the Khashoggi group in control and eased Khashoggi out of the limelight. Khashoggi’s long-time attorney, Tariq Kadri, became president of the Horsham holding company that controlled Barrick.
In 1986-87, Barrick Gold acquired the Goldstrike property in Nevada for $63 million, with $10 billion in gold from the US government. After Bush Sr. became President in 1988, his administration gave Barrick Gold a special dispensation to speed up the procedures for a mining company to "patent" to the land. Suddenly Barrick Gold had become one of the biggest gold mining companies in the world, and Bush himself became a Barrick Director.

In 1992, Edward Ney quit as US ambassador to Canada and became a director of the Barrick Gold Corp.
In 1993, Brian Mulroney resigned as Canadian prime minister. Mulroney as PM had directly aided Barrick's international ventures and had worked closely with Bush Sr on “free trade” agreements. Munk immediately hired Mulroney.

In May 1995, the Canada-based Barrick created an international advisory board around George Bush Sr.
Paul G. Desmarais (the richest man in Canada and a member of Her Majesty's Council for Canada) was also on Barrick’s international advisory board. Desmarais runs Power Corp. and serves on several boards with Maurice Strong (a top operative of Prince Philip's and Bernhard’s World Wide Fund for Nature). Desmarais was also part-owner of Europe's largest private TV network, the banking Groupe Bruxelles Lambert and Belgium's Petrofina oil giant.


Consolidated Eurocan - Lundin
In 1996, Eurocan Consolidated of Vancouver finalised a deal to purchase a 55% interest in the Tenke-Fungurume copper-cobalt deposits from state mining company Gecamines, for a quarter of a billion dollars over 72 months.
Consolidated Eurocan is owned and controlled by the Swedish Adolf Lundin, who in the 1980s was involved with the Heritage Foundation and founded Reagan’s presidential campaign.


Banro Resources, MDDZ - Anglo American
In September 1996, the tiny Toronto, Canada-based Banro Resources Corp., obtained a 36% concession to mine gold in Zaire's central-east province of Kivu (Sominki). Another large stake in Sominki was bought by the Belgium-based company Mines D' or du Zaire (MDDZ). Cluff Mining Co. of London owns 60% of MDDZ is; Cluff is controlled by Anglo American Corp that owns 65% of it.
On 21 September 1 996, Banro and MDDZ announced their merger, with Banro selling its shares to MDDZ. The Banro-MDDZ company held a 72% stake in Sominki, ultimately controlled by Anglo American.
The rich concession starts in the town of Bukavu, which was the site of a major Rwandan refugee camp. Banro and Anglo American Corporation needed this site cleared of people, so in mid-October Uganda started the invasion of Zaire and cleared Bukavu of the refugees.


American Mineral Fields - Anglo American
American Mineral Fields (AMF) was founded, owned by Jean-Raymond Boulle, a former executive for DeBeers Diamonds.
AMF signed an agreement with Anglo American, which gave Anglo American the right to invest up to $100 million in any AMF venture in Shaba province, taking up to 50% equity stake in a venture.


Anglo American – De Beers Rio Tinto
The South Africa-based Anglo American is the biggest mining company in the world, run by the Oppenheimer family. Financing for Anglo American and its empire came from Rothschild and J.P. Morgan.
Anglo American, through cross-ownership, owns DeBeers Centenary and DeBeers Consolidated (which together controls 80% of the world's diamonds), and the Luxembourg-based Minerals and Resources Corp. (Minorco) holding company.
The full global reach of Anglo American only becomes clear when viewed in combination with the London-based Rio Tinto Zinc (RTZ), the world's second largest raw materials company, in which (again) the Rothschilds and Queen Elizabeth II own a substantial stake.

See the combined share of Western world mining production of Anglo American and Rio Tinto Zinc in 1996 (Uranium only 8%?).
