All of these deals have been acquired in apparent collusion with the controversial businessman Dan Gertler, who is a friend of Congolese President Joseph Kabila.
In mid-May, Global Witness submitted a detailed list of questions relating to ENRC's dealings with Mr Gertler to both ENRC and the law firm Dechert, which acts as the company's anti-corruption auditor. ENRC must provide full answers to these questions and publish them if it wishes to end controversy over its activities in Congo. ENRC's chairman, Mehmet Dalman, has said he expects to have examined the results of an external audit into corruption allegations by the end of June. In a statement sent to Global Witness as we were going to press, ENRC said: "ENRC has a zero-tolerance policy to bribery and corruption, which extends to all of our business dealings, across all of our operations. The Board has been working extremely hard to ensure that its policies are adopted and procedures adhered to, with serious consequences for any breach of these policies and procedures." Global Witness has also submitted questions to Mr Gertler relating to his business with ENRC. While Mr Gertler has not provided answers to this list of questions, shortly before publication his spokesman issued a statement questioning Global Witness's motives and saying we are funded by Mr Gertler's competitors. The statement also said Global Witness has rejected an offer of an independent audit of the beneficiaries of companies that belong to the Fleurette Group, Mr Gertler's holding company. These statements are incorrect. Global Witness would be happy to discuss the offer of an audit and has told the Fleurette Group so on a number of occasions. Global Witness's latest briefing on corruption concerns linked to Mr Gertler comes a month after it called on another FTSE 100 company, Glencore, to explain its involvement with the businessman. Both Glencore and ENRC own mining interests in Congo worth billions of dollars, and for both these companies their assets are tightly wound up with Mr Gertler's interests. The documents available from the Global Witness website include: Global Witness's memo to ENRC's shareholders, Q&A on ENRC's links to the "secret sales" scandal, the list of questions sent by Global Witness to ENRC on 15th May, the list of questions sent by Global Witness to Mr Gertler's spokesman on 14th May, the statement by Dan Gertler's spokesman regarding Global Witness on 11th June, the response by ENRC to Global Witness on 11th June.

These shell companies have a few things in common, according to the report: They are based in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) or Gibraltar, they have no expertise in resource development, and many of them are linked to an Israeli businessman named Dan Gertler, who has close ties to Congolese President Joseph Kabila....The election is going down to the wire, even though Mr. Kabila has tried to give himself an edge.

For reasons that will become obvious, you can substitute those names with Dan Gertler, Joseph Kabila, and Katumba Mwanke.
In 2008, when Dan Gertler was trying to wrest control of a mining concession from Africo, a Canadian firm, one of Gertler's associates texted him: Hi [DRC Partner], ... im with the main lawyer ... in the Africo story, he has to arrange with supreme court, attorney gemal [sic] and magistrates, he wants 500 to give to all the officials and 600 for 3 lawyers cabinets that worked on the file in defense[lawyer]and batonnier [lawyer]. the converstaion is vey tough. (while talking I said to ask money to [one of the Akam shareholders], [the Akam shareholder]said he cant because most of the money has to go to ·[DRC Official 2] . . . i dont know if he wants to provoke me or it was something [the Akam shareholder]invented ...) but they are now at 1. 1 in total. He's talking about about thousands of dollars. Shortly afterward, Gertler responds: "We can't 'accept a mid result ... Africo must be screwd and finished totally!!!!" All in all, the legal document says that Gertler transferred $23.5 million of Och-Ziff's money to Katumba Mwanke between 2008 and 2012, and $10.75 million to a person who is most likely Joseph Kabila. Bloomberg reported that Gertler ("DRC Partner") paid a total of over $100 million in bribes to Congolese officials. How do I know that those are the people involved? Bloomberg's article clearly identifies Gertler through other sources familiar with the case, and the document itself is fairly clear: "an Israeli businessman [with] significant interests in the diamond and mineral mining industries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo." It says that "DRC Official 2," was "a senior official in the DRC and close advisor to DRC Official 1. Since at least 2004, DRC Official 2 was an Ambassador-at-Large for the DRC government and also a national parliamentarian. It goes on to say, citing an Och-Ziff employee, that he was Gertler's "guy in the DRC. Finally, it says he died on February 12, 2012. There is no doubt that is Katumba Mwanke. As for DRC Official 1, it says that Katumba was his closest aide and advisor. When Katumba died, Gertler sent a text message to an OchZiff employee saying: "I'm fine ... sad but fine ...
