Polished diamonds vanishes at AMC-Gemxel factory in Namibia - report

21 september 2012

Reports say 17 polished diamonds have gone missing at AMC-Gemxel Diamonds’ polishing factory in Namibia’s capital, Windhoek.
Company director Hanganee Gurirab confirmed that there were diamonds missing to the Namibian newspaper but preferred to call it a "stock imbalance" not theft.
"The precise number is not yet known," he said, although the police said they were investigating the theft of 17 stones.
The Namibian newspaper also reported that the resignation of the company's general manager, Eugene Roos, almost at the same time the diamonds went missing, had been questioned by some factory workers.
However, Gurirab said that Roos had resigned before the diamonds went missing.
He said no diamond cutting would be done at the factory until the probe was finalised.
AMC-Gemxel Diamonds was a sightholder of the Namibia Diamond Trading Company (NDTC).
