PAC: DIAMONDS USED BY ZIM GOVT PLAYERS IN INTERNAL POWER STRUGGLE
13 June 2010

A new Partnership Africa Canada (PAC) report titled "Diamonds and Clubs: The Militarized Control of Diamonds and Power in Zimbabwe" details the direct involvement of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and his inner circle, specifically members of the Joint Operations Command (JOC), in the country's diamond sector, and how the country's natural resource has been misused to enrich these government players to the detriment of the national treasury and citizens.
