Texas-Owned Gulfstream V Damaged in Illegal Gold Sale

A Dallas-area aviation business has been awarded compensation for damages done to its $43-million dollar Gulfstream V jet aircraft by a Dallas County jury.

Southlake Aviation, owned by David Disiere, had leased the jet to Houston-based oil company, CAMAC International. In violation of the terms of the lease, CAMAC attempted to smuggle over ten thousand pounds of gold bullion out of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The plot is something out of a Hollywood heist movie, and reports are that Congolese warlord General Bosco Ntaganda was directly involved with the plan, which also violates a number of international laws.

CAMAC executive, Kase Lawal, who was appointed to a White House Trade Advisory position by President Obama, and Houston Rocket’s basketball player Dikembe Mutombo, have also been implicated in the case.
