Sable Mining, a company co-founded by Edmonds and his business parter Andrew Groves, said a report the company had bribed African officials was based on “unreliable” testimony.

Anti-corruption campaign group Global Witness had accused Edmonds and Groves of a “multi-million dollar heist” in an investigation it said was based on leaked emails and company files.
