Shoot: Unmarked Timber on Truck in DRC

GP0STO304
Unmarked timber is observed on a truck in the private port of the Lebanese-owned company Cotrefor in Kinkole, exposing the government’s failure of its so-called “battle against illegal logging”. A new report by Greenpeace Africa, “Cut It Out: Illegal Logging in the DRC”, reveals the devastating impact that the lack of governance, law enforcement and transparency in the country is having on part of the world’s second largest rainforest. By visiting Kinkole port near Kinshasa, Greenpeace Africa witnessed unmarked logs being piled up ready for export. Reinforcing the illegality of this, Greenpeace also witnessed log ends being painted with new markings to enable export to Europe and China. Greenpeace is calling for a total transformation of the logging sector in the DRC.
