Israel's richest man sues Global Witness

There’s been yet more controversy surrounding the tussles between BSG Resources Ltd., Vale, Rio Tinto and the Government of Guinea over control of the country’s huge Simandou Project.

Global Witness has dismissed the claim as an attempt to “stifle journalism in the public interest”.
