Hillary Rodham Clinton's Brother, Received Haiti Gold Exploitation Permits

A new book slated to hit bookshelves nationwide on May 5th by the New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer, reveals that in 2012, a mining company named Delta Societe Miniere S.A, a subsidiary of VCS Mining, Inc., headed by Tony Rodham brother of Ms. Hillary Clinton, had been awarded super-rare mining permit from Haiti. The book, entitled, "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How & Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich" describes how the Clinton family has accumulated $100+ million personal wealth; it investigates the connections between their acts, foundation and decision as the secretary of state, that benefited foreign governments, donors, and companies.


The book reveals an unusual nexus of mining interests, relief work in Haiti, and how a former U.S. Presidential family mingles their political, personal and philanthropic interests. The investigative report by the author has raised questions on ethics that could jeopardize the fitness of Hillary Clinton's presidential ambitions. The story indicates questionable ethics, cronyism and a blurring of the lines between charity and profiteering. Tony Rodham was on the board of the North Carolina mining company that received the prized access to Haitian gold deposits and that awarding took place in the midst of the Clintons' intense involvement through the Clinton Foundation in the rebuilding projects in Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake.

The lease granted to VCS Mining, Inc., a tiny North Carolina company was one of only two "gold exploitation permits" in December 2012 from the Haitian government-- the first ever issued in last 50 years. VCS Mining finalized the closing of permits to explore 674.49 square kilometers in the North-East & South-East Haiti and the other licensee was SOMINE SA, (Société Minière du Nord-Est SA) is a company jointly owned by a Canadian company Majescor Resources Inc. and Haitian investors.The terms of the permit to VCS Mining were very much questionable because the agreed 2.5% rate of royalty payment was at least half of the prevailing standard rate and further it had the privilege to renew the mining project in Morne Bossa on easy terms for up to 25 years. Interestingly, another board member of VCS Mining was the former Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, who also co-chaired the charitable Interim Haiti Recovery Commission with Mr. Clinton.
