Two years ago, a Congolese man went missing.
The man, identified only as S.N., left his home in DRC and never returned.
His disappearance has become one of the most notorious cases in the world of international mining.
In June of this year, police in Doha, Qatar, arrested a man for allegedly kidnapping a Congosan man in an attempt to sell him to a Nigerian businessman.
The Nigerian man was ultimately convicted of murder in a court in Dalian.
The man was sentenced to life in prison in Qatar, but his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by the DRC’s President Michel Temer.
While the case was a wake-up call for Congosans, there were no reports of similar cases in Dania.
This week, a news report by the Agence France-Presse (AFP) revealed that the number of Congo’s mines had declined in the last year.
According to the AFP, the Congos are now mining only about 5 percent of the minerals they were before the recent decline.
“This means that for every 1,000 people that are mining, only one person is making a living,” said Dr. Jean-Luc Guillén, a mining specialist with the NGO Congos-Travail.
So what is the problem?
According, a new report by The World Bank, Congo’s mineral resources are under-invested in, under-explored, underutilized, and underdeveloped.
There is little oversight in terms of the allocation of mineral resources, and few companies have the expertise and the technical know-how to deal with the resource challenges of the country.
Moreover, in addition to lack of resources, the country has limited access to basic services, such as electricity and water, that are crucial to the lives of the population.
As a result, the population is being left to rely on the largesse of wealthy foreign investors to fund their operations.
Many of these investors are from the mining and oil and gas industries, which are notoriously corrupt.
But despite this, the mining industry is often criticized as having little to no transparency, a practice known as “corruption by omission.”
This means the mining companies often keep their finances secret, and it is often difficult to track down the people behind these actions.
One of the worst-kept secrets of the mining sector is that Congosas citizens are often the victims of corruption.
Congosans often believe that foreign companies are corrupt, even if the companies are not.
In fact, a recent report by Greenpeace International revealed that over 80 percent of Congosani children were forced to work in mines or other mining-related industries, with more than 50 percent of them working as sex slaves.
When a Congo loses his job or finds out his partner has been forced into prostitution, it can be difficult for him to get a job or obtain basic services.
To help make matters worse, the mines in the country have been subject to an array of laws designed to punish the mining industries that exploit Congoans.
In a 2015 report by Amnesty International, more than half of Congoan companies were found to be operating without any independent oversight, and there are no laws or rules to protect Congos from the consequences of such behavior.
These laws also make it easier for foreign companies to exploit Congo, particularly those in the oil and mining industries.
The United Nations is currently investigating more than 3,000 cases of alleged human rights abuses, including forced labor, child prostitution, forced recruitment and trafficking, sexual violence, and other serious violations.
Despite these ongoing investigations, there is little progress on the country’s human rights agenda.
A recent draft law would have introduced stricter penalties for the exploitation of Congoans, including the possibility of jail time and a fine of up to $20,000.
But these efforts are unlikely to sway the mining community to end its involvement in Congo.
On the contrary, many Congos and others are determined to maintain their mining activities and are not interested in any legal changes that would affect their mining operations.
In fact, in Dandakaranya, a region in northeastern Congo, there has been a growing demand for mining.
The area’s mineral wealth is estimated to be worth over $2 billion, according to an Associated Press news report.
Since its discovery in the 1970s, Dandaka has become a hub for mining in the region, attracting thousands of foreign companies.
Most of these companies have been forced to shut down or scale back their operations in the Dandakee region, fearing the threat of local unrest.
Although many Congo companies have recently started returning to the region and are now planning to build new mines in Dantewo, the demand for mineral resources in the area has remained high.
Dandakas population has dwindled
