Trafigura: Bribery in Angola

In February 2013 the Swiss NGO Berne Declaration accused Trafigura of “contributing to the enrichment of a caste of autocratic rulers” [1]  to the “detriment of the Angolan people who are amongst the poorest in the world.”  Their report “Trafigura´s Business in Angola” sheds light on Trafigura`s opaque business ties with corrupt Angolan government officials.
