A collective of three civil society organizations – Public Eye, the Platform for the Protection of Whistleblowers in Africa (Pplaaf) and the UNIS association – has deposit to the Public Prosecutor of the Swiss Confederation, a “criminal denunciation” concerning two banking transactions involving the branches of the Swiss giant UBS in Zurich and Geneva. According to our information, the denunciation was made on July 7.
In total, two transactions with a total value of 19 million dollars involving the Belgian entrepreneur Philippe de Moerloose, boss of the specialist in road, mining and agricultural equipment and machinery SDA Group, active since 1991 in the DRC, where this 55-year-old leader grew up. According to these organizations, these resources come from the “laundering of embezzled Congolese public funds” during the years of the presidency of Joseph Kabila.
