The Angola-Russia Debt Deal

The Angola-Russia Debt Deal

Corruption Watch was approached in late 2011 with a significant cache of documents that provided insight into one of the most egregious cases of financial mismanagement and corruption.

Via the insertion of dubious middlemen, hundreds of millions of dollars were diverted from the treasuries of Russia and Angola (one of the poorest countries in the world) to the benefit of political figures and businessmen. Corruption Watch’s report on the Deal was published in April 2013, and can be viewed here. Corruption Watch intends to continue to advocate for renewed criminal investigations into the Deal.
