‘Pandora Papers’: Congo-Brazzaville’s Prez threatens ‘court action’

President Denis Sassou-Nguesso has threatened to drag the book runners of Pandora Papers’ before court over disclosures from the Pandora Papers’ latest work by a consortium of Journalists.

Congo-Brazzaville’s President Denis Sassou-Nguesso could make a legitimate move after he was named in the released archives, French telecaster RFI reports citing the Information Minister.

The Pandora Papers said President Sassou-Nguesso has a firm that controlled jewel mines in Congo.

The Congolese specialists dismissed the cases.

Information Minister Thierry Moungalla has censured the releases and said the president could sue news sources that report on them.

In Kenya, political adversaries of President Uhuru Kenyatta say the multi-million dollar properties just as stocks and bonds worth more than $30m (£22m) that his family supposedly possesses in far off nations ought to be exchanged and sent back home to support the economy.

Kenya’s Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji told the Daily Nation paper that his office will test people referenced in the Pandora Papers “if the archives [will] assist with uncovering wrongdoing as a wellspring of assets”.

Uganda’s Security Minister Jim Muhwezi, who was accounted for to claim shares worth great many dollars in two unfamiliar shell organizations, was hesitant when reached by the Daily Monitor paper.

“I don’t have the foggiest idea what you are discussing and I can’t make any answer,” Mr Muhwezi was cited as saying.
