UN on Congo: Dodd-Frank conflict minerals law increases conflict


KPFA Weekend News, 12.31.2011: 

A UN report says that the U.S.A.'s conflict minerals legislation, Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, is increasing rather than decreasing criminality and conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and that Bosco Ntaganda is now in control of minerals smuggling from the eastern Congolese city of Goma into Rwanda.  Ntaganda is commander of the CNDP militia that fought the Congolese army before being "integrated" into the Congolese army in January 2009. The Wikipedia identifies him as a Rwandan Tutsi and a former member of the Rwandan Patriotic Army, which seized power in Kigali, Rwanda's capital, in 1994.
