al-Shabaab earns US $10 million by smuggling Somalia charcoal

Al-Shabaab earns US$10 million by smuggling Somalia charcoal | Coastweek

The inaugural conference on combatting the illicit smuggling of Somalia charcoal has been held at the Combined Maritime Forces headquarters in Bahrain. With the majority of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries being present, the aim of the conference was to identify potential methods to disrupt the illicit trade in charcoal emanating from Somalia. It is estimated that terrorist organisations such as al-Shabaab earn in the region of US$10 million per year by smuggling charcoal from Somalia, which is often marketed as legitimate charcoal to buyers in GCC countries. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) placed a total ban on the export of charcoal from Somalia in 2012. In 2014, the UNSC gave authorisation for Member States to inspect vessels suspected to be carrying charcoal from Somalia in violation of the ban, to seize and dispose of the illicit cargo and to divert the vessels to a port for such disposal.
