The Abong Mbang & Fils company used non valid transport documents for the evacuation of timber cut in the Community Forest Ngola-Achip. Two loads of timber were evacuated on October 8 and 11, 2007 by the partner Abong Mbang Car, who allegedly used other documents to transport the timber.

Policy framework
The amounts of the fines established by the Forest Code in the DRC are no longer dissuasive and are in complete misalignment with the rest of the sanctions in the region. The fine under article 143 of the Forest Code is set at a maximum of 100,000 constant FC, that is, 395,25 USD. By comparison, for a violation of the management plan’s prescriptions, the Republic of Congo’s Forest Code establishes fines ranging from 5,000,000 to 20,000,000 FCFA, corresponding to a range of 10,300 to 41,000 USD. ...

Policy framework
The rules for calculating “forest” damages have so far not been specified, which, therefore, runs the risk of experts and judges devaluing the damage caused. The established fines to sanction offenses represent derisory amounts, and there is no scale to fix the amounts of damages and interests that the government could claim. ... Read more

Planning and decision making
There is a coordination problem between the structures involved in the collection of taxes. The statistical information that the MECNT should have does not reach the DGRAD, thus reducing the possibilities of making comparisons in order to avoid the reduction of figures. The relationship between the structure in charge of determining taxation (MECNT) and the one in charge of collection (DGRAF) is almost non-existent, particularly at the provincial level. This can be a major issue for controlling the tax base and for the requests for verification of the legality of exported timber to be formulated by the EU as part of the FLEGT process. ... Read more
