Facebook event

The legal proceedings against the people behind Mozambique's illegal, secret loans have begun, and they include among other the former finance minister of the country and previous bank employees. Now, Mozambican civil society representatives are visiting Oslo, to spread information about their fight for justice and what can be done.

Mozambique's debt crisis hit in 2016 after it became known that secret, illegal loans had been agreed to by government officials, against the country's constitution, but the money has largely disappeared in corruption and not been to the benefit of most Mozambicans. One of the banks behind the loans, Credit Suisse, has the Norwegian Oil Fund as one of its largest owners. Come to our panel discussion and hear more about what happened and what can be done now to solve the situation.

In the panel:

Denise Namburete - activist from Mozambique and coordinator in the organisation Budget Monitoring Forum (FMO), is one of the leading civil society actors working with the debt crisis.

Helge Rønning - Professor emeritus from the University of Oslo. He has worked both in and on Mozambique for numerous years.

Solveig Skaugvoll Foss - parliament representative from SV, member of the Finance Committee.

Moderator: Nina Bull Jørgensen - journalist


The event will be in English.
