Port Concessions in Africa: French Billionaire Vincent Bolloré Bleaches in a Letter

For corruptions related to harbor concessions in Togo and Guinea, Vincent Bolloré was summoned as “implicated” to the judicial police on April 24th. The next day, in the evening, the billionaire was brought before the judges of Nanterre.

While he is accused of having used his communication subsidiary Havas to facilitate the coming to power of African leaders, with under-billed consulting missions, in exchange for these lucrative concessions, Bolloré washed with water, through a correspondence of which Afrikmag had a copy.

Bolloré accuses a former employee of his group

Vincent Bolloré does not seem to appreciate the relentless media that he has been the subject of since the beginning of this story. In his letter addressed to his employees, he speaks of “media tintamarre”, which, according to him, date for several years. The jacket of the culprit, Bolloré who clears of course, has it brought to one of his former employees “returned for diverting us assets tens of millions of euros in Africa by transferring them free of charge of the company owned by our group to another company with almost the same name it had created to operate its hijackings “. The businessman warns his employees, that this story is not over, because he is convinced that it “may weigh heavily on the group.”

Vincent Bolloré shouting at the plot

In the letter, Bolloré gives his version of the facts.

“They go back about 10 years. They concern two port concessions whose international tenders were held in Togo in 2001 and in Guinea in 2008. We won the one of Togo since 2001, having arrived first and that of Guinea. We arrived second, but the first, the company Getma, could not make the investments
