Zimbabwe Says It Will Sell Its Marange Diamonds, Herald Reports

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Zimbabwe will sell diamonds from the Marange diamond fields because it can’t be stopped by “hostile nations,” the state-controlled Herald said, citing Mines Secretary Thankful Musukutwa.

The Kimberley Process, an international body that rules on conflict diamonds, “cannot go political in its dealings,” the Harare-based newspaper cited Musukutwa as saying. Zimbabwean authorities are surprised about allegations of human rights abuses at Marange, Musukutwa was cited by the Herald as telling a visiting delegation from the Norwegian government.

The government denies allegations of human rights violations and says it has complied with all Kimberley Process demands, the Herald reported on its website.
