|East African Bribery Index 2011 and HDC
East African Bribery Index 2011 by Transparency International has recently been released. To HDC Ltd is no surprise that Tanzania is represented by Judiciary/Courts among the top-ten worst institutions among all the institutions in the five East African countries Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda.
On a scale from 0 to 100 the Judiciary/Courts in Tanzania scored 57. A high score indicates a high level of bribery. For the sake of comparison: the Judiciary in Burundi scored 11, indicating that the probability of succeeding in bribing a court in Tanzania is 5 times higher than in Burundi.
HDC Ltd has been given information that indicates how, by whom and how much the courts inTanzania have been bribed in the HDC case. Unfortunately, due to the nature of bribing, the institutions and persons involved, it has so far been difficult to make use of the information we have been given to prove corruption in this connection. However we find the information so alarming that the public should know HDC has been given this kind of information from several independent trustworthy sources. Be aware that HDC Ltd has neither been able nor willing to bribe the courts.
Toralf Rugland and Olaf Myklatun gave recently an interview to Stavanger Aftenblad, a daily newspaper in Norway. They proclaimed that the conflict about ownership to the Mulbadaw farm is over. They said nothing about why they think that it is over.
The truth is that after more than 5 years the legal ownership to Mulbadaw Farm has not yet been considered by a court.
We are not very surprised by the rating of the Tanzanian Judiciary/Courts. We are disappointed. But we shall have in mind that there is always more than one part involved in bribery. In our case we have good reasons to believe that why our case has not yet been considered by the court is found in the East African Bribery Index.
