By: Bush ties big victory for Chaim Leibovitz and Gertler

Cutting-edge diplomacy
President Joseph Kabila's planned meeting with United States President George Bush on 5 November is a personal triumph for Israeli diamond trader and Congo's ambassador at large Dan Gertler who, along with his business partner Chaim Leibovitz, has been cultivating White House contacts for several months.

Arrangements for the Kabila visit follow closed door meetings between Gertler, Leibovitz and US National Security Council Director for Africa, Jendayi Frazer, this year. These private meetings irritated Frazer's colleagues in the State Department (sometimes at odds with the White House-based NSC) who questioned their utility.

Emaxon Finance International Inc. and MIBA
43. A secret agreement between state diamond company Minière de Bakwanga (MIBA) and Emaxon (an entity controlled by Israeli diamond traders Chaim Leibovitz and Dan Gertler) was at the centre of the first major dispute in the power-sharing government over mining revenues. The existence and terms of the agreement between Emaxon and MIBA, dated 13 April 2003, were kept secret by leading officials of the former DRC government - even from the new Minister of Mines Eugene Diomi Ndongala who represents the non-armed opposition in the new government.
44. Under the terms of the agreement, Emaxon is to lend MIBA $5 million for capital investment in its production plant and advance it a further $10 million, which will be redeemed against future diamond sales. However, some of MIBA's creditors say that the agreement between Emaxon and MIBA contravenes an undertaking, which the state diamond company gave promising to consult them about any change in marketing and export sale arrangements. The Panel is in possession of a copy of the agreement which is dated Johannesburg, 25 February 2003. The agreement is between MIBA, Groupe Van De Ghinste, Demimpex, Ken Overseas, Chanic and OSS. The agreement stipulates that MIBA must consult the creditors if it changes its marketing agreements.
45. A businessman representing one of the MIBA creditors reported that Secretary General to the government Augustine Katumba Mwanke instructed MIBA's President Administrateur Delegue Gustave Luabeye Tshitala and MIBA's Director of General Services Michel Haubert to sign the Emaxon agreement, and explained that there may be deliberate under-pricing of the MIBA shipments to fund Emaxon's "credit line" to MIBA. Other credible sources have made the same claims, explaining that the Secretary General played a key role in negotiating the agreement with Mr. Leibowitz.
46. Concerns have also been expressed concern about the legal accountability of Emaxon, should there be a dispute over sales revenues or the enforceability of payment agreements. Although Emaxon Finance International Inc. (the entity that signed the agreement) gives its address as Suite 2900 at 1000 de la Gauchetiere West, Montreal, Canada; it does not have a publicly listed telephone number. The majority shareholder in Emaxon is FTS Worldwide Corporation whose business address is stated to be that of a firm of lawyers, Mossack Fonseca & Co in Panama City.

The France based 'Reporters Without Borders' has just released its '2016 World Press Freedom Index', which purports to measure the "level of freedom of information in 180 countries", and, not for the fist time with this annual index, I question
