Fishrot – A Call For Restorative Justice: Namibian & Global Civil Society Urge Action

Fishrot Media Release 20221121 Fishrot – A Call For Restorative Justice: Namibian & Global Civil Society Urge Action

On 12 November 2022, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) Namibia and Transparency International Iceland issued a joint media release supported by over 20 Namibian civil society organisations (CSOs) and international anti-corruption activists on the Fishrot scandal. The joint media release calls for restorative justice, specifically for:

  • Samherji to submit to a process of reparation and remediation,
  • Samherji’s international suppliers, customers, and business partners to review their arrangements with the Icelandic company,
  • the Icelandic authorities to initiate criminal proceedings and take active steps to address corruption carried out by Icelandic citizens,
  • the Namibian authorities to introduce further governance reform – particularly by amending the Marine Resources Act, which enabled Fishrot,
  • international governments to take all available steps to ensure that proceeds of crime are not entering their economies through Samherji’s international investments made using proceeds of its Namibian business.
