辛巴威試圖洗刷鑽石業的玷汙形象

Zimbabweseeks to polish diamond sector's tainted image

 

Accused of being opaque , corrupt and murderous , Zimbabwe’s diamond sector wants to polish its image.

背負黑箱作業、貪腐與凶殘惡名的辛巴威鑽石行業,希望洗刷形象。

Beneath Zimbabwe's soil lies wealth that could help transform the country's battered economy .

辛巴威的土地下蘊藏著能協助該國扭轉破敗經濟的寶藏。

Zimbabweis home to the diamond fields -- one of Africa's largest in Africa -- and has the potential to supply 25 percent of the world's diamonds . Yet very few investors have been willing to cross the Rubicon.

辛巴威的馬蘭吉鑽石礦場是非洲最大的鑽石礦之一,有供應世界25 %鑽石的龐大潛能。然而,很少投資人願意冒然參與。

That is because the sector has become synonymous with graft , torture and murder that has been linked to some of the highest powers in the land .

因為當地的鑽石業和該國的最高權力圈掛勾,已和貪汙、酷刑與謀殺劃上等號。

Rights groups say 200 people were killed in 2008 at Marange when the Zimbabwean army and anti – riot police cleared small - scale miners .

人權團體說,2008 年辛巴威軍隊與鎮暴警察處理小礦場礦工糾紛時,約有200 人遭殺害。

Zimbabwe was consequently banned from the Kimberley Process , a watchdog for the diamond trade.

The ban was only lifted when the government said it had pulled out security forces out of the area.

辛巴威因此被逐出鑽石業的觀察組織「金伯利機制」,直到政府宣稱已將安全部隊抽離當地之後,禁令才獲解除。(法新社)
