Officials and media reported that Ian Harris, the Financial Officer of African Consolidated Resources (ACR) have been abducted by members of Mines Minister Obert Mpofu private police on Thursday. According to Andrew Cranswick, the CEO of African Consolidated Resources the police have refused to tell lawyers where Harris has been taken.
Reportedly, ACR was at the centre of a legal battle over the Chiadzwa diamonds claim and accused of fraud and corruption. However, Cranswick rejected the accusations, saying that it is purely a case of abduction. There were no immediate comments available from any government officials.
