WFDB Warns About Ivory Coast

The World Federation of Diamond Bourses called on its
members to heed warnings issued by the KP Chair earlier this week on the
possible re-emergence of conflict diamonds from the Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory
Coast).

The WFDB asked its affiliated bourses to advise their
members of the KP letter and assure that its contents are posted—accompanied by
a translation in the various local languages—on the bourses’ notice boards and
websites. 

The WFDB’s notice followed a message from WFDB president Avi
Paz sent earlier this year,
calling on the WFDB member bourses to convene members’ meetings to discuss how
to protect the reputation of the WFDB-affiliated diamond bourses and their
members.
