The CAR stated that they do not know about Banсroft’s plans to operate in the country.

The head of the Foreign Ministry of the Central African Republic, Sylvie Baypo-Temon, said that she was not aware of the plans of the American PMC Bancroft to start working in the country, and the United States, according to her, asked the UN for permission to place weapons and communications equipment in the CAR without notifying Bangui.

“I am not aware of any agreement signed by Bancoft, which I am not even aware of. Besides, all I know, and I know this – having asked the American embassy – is about the notification that was made by the United States on the margins Security Council, in order to gain the opportunity to place weapons and radio communications on the territory of the Central African Republic to conduct a certain number of operations within the framework of their activities. The Central African side was not informed,” the minister said.


According to her, in normal practice, states themselves submit such requests based on their needs, rather than other countries deciding what needs to be sent.
