NIGER ‘SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY’ EXPOSED IN FINCEN FILES SPARKS LAWSUIT DEMANDING ACTION

On 20 January, ICIJ published an article saying that English front companies allegedly siphoned millions of dollars from Niger, one of the world’s poorest countries, in a military procurement scandal that has engulfed the country and sparked lawsuits.  Last year, journalists in Niger obtained a confidential audit from the country’s MoD that alleged up to $120 million in defence spending had disappeared from the West African country, often into tax havens and bank accounts controlled by unknown owners.
