feature story - Bank Scandal in Congo

may 3rd, 2018

Newly uncovered evidence published today by The Sentry reveals that BGFIBank DRC, a Congolese bank run and partly owned by members of President Joseph Kabila’s family, maintained accounts up to at least 2016 for companies with ties to terrorists.

The Sentry’s investigative alert, “Bank Scandal in Congo,” details how the bank maintained those accounts for Congo Futur, a company under U.S. sanctions, despite repeated warnings from employees, other banks, and the U.S. government.
