Diamonds Smuggle Busted

In the midst of reported constrained being faced by the Government of Liberia in developing capacity to properly monitor mining activities across the country, the United Nations Panel of Experts is reporting widespread trafficking of natural minerals here, unabated, including diamond and gold, among others.

Most of the gems entered Liberia from neighboring Sierra Leone to avoid that country’s tax of 15 percent on special stones valued at over $500,000, while smaller, lowvalue diamonds are typically trafficked directly from Liberia to buyers inside Sierra Leone, the UN Panel of Experts discloses.
