Congo's Blood Gold
Thomas Fessy investigates for Assignment, allegations that General Gabriel Amisi Kumba - the second-in-command of the Congolese military - profited from the illegal takeover of a gold mine.
Sources have told him that the general used military force to install a favoured company at the Omate gold mine in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The general allegedly received a quarter of the gold mine's revenues in return.
And he hears allegations that mining has continued at Omate, under military protection, despite a ban on gold mining in the east of the country, which was imposed by President Joseph Kabila in September.
