    Neat that the government of the country can do the same thing, but it’s a problem once others get that gold in their hands

    quand c'est pour piller l'afrique ça parle "d'investigation" mais quand on touche à sa Guyane française ça parle "d'orpaillage illégal" quel ironie..

    And in my country just west of this we have some military personel used as security and tax collectors for illegal miners on behalf of the friends, family or allies to the government, what a shamefull contradiction😞

    It is illegal for native people to take the Gold from their nature country but it It's very legal for foreign forces to take their gold and send it back to their countries what a coincidence

    They take bribes and walk away. No way do the police actually shut it down.
