UGANDA PROBES REFINERY OVER ALLEGED SMUGGLING OF GOLD

First Post reported on 14th March that Ugandan authorities said that they are investigating the country’s biggest gold refinery over recent imports of an estimated 7.4 tonnes of gold, worth some $300 million.  Local media has reported the gold could have originated from Venezuela, but the refinery says it came from South Africa.  Police raided the premises of the refiner involved after securing a court order and found a 3.6 tonne batch but an earlier shipment had disappeared.
