PRESIDENT MADURO LINKED TO UGANDAN GOLD PROBE

On 15th March, OCCRP reported that Ugandan authorities are investigating unexplained imports of 7.4 tonnes of gold worth $300 million that is suspected of originating with President Maduro’s regime in Venezuela.  The investigation is centred on African Gold Refinery (AGR), the country’s largest refinery.  It says that Uganda has become a regional smuggling hub for gold with corruption and widespread mismanagement, and that previously AGR was accused of facilitating gold smuggling from conflict regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
