in the eastern lowlands of the gorilla. Rwanda, occupied the eastern Congo, the democratic republic of Congo mining resources in these areas therefore failed to gain profit. A United Nations security council report, a lot of ore in the eastern border kingdom in Uganda and Burundi and Rwanda militia illegal mining and smuggling. It is estimated that the rwandan troops in less than 18 months, through the sale of coltan at least $250 million in revenues. This statement has been questioned, however, because also has its own tantalum ore in Rwanda, it is difficult to tell which is ore of smuggling.
Coltan smuggling has also been referred to as one of the main source of income for the Congolese warlord. For many, this lead to the similar ethical problems and conflict diamonds. Because is very difficult to distinguish between legal and illegal coltan, several electronics manufacturers decided to boycott all African coltan, instead using other coltan.
United Nations accused of smuggling of these three countries coltan ore bill eventually abandoned. The reference link below is a reporter Austria Klaus Werner records of multinational companies and coltan trading illegally
