Blood Diamonds: Tiffany’s supplier funds IDF unit accused of war crimes

Posted on

Revenue from a Tiffany’s supplier, the Beny Steinmetz Group Resources company, is channelled via the Steinmetz Foundation to the Israeli military which stands accused of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity by the UN Human Rights Council. Sean Clinton writes, “While Tiffany & Co’s efforts to promote ‘responsible mining’ and prevent ‘conflict diamonds’ from entering their supply chain are laudable, the failure to fully secure their supply chain means that diamonds linked to gross human rights violations in Palestine can still infiltrate their supply.”
