RAPAPORT... The future employment of some 150 workers at the closed Lev Leviev Diamonds (LLD) facility in Namibia remains uncertain as the company's managing director, Kombadayetu Kapwanga, told the local press that it has not reached a supply agreement with the Namibia Diamond Trading Company (NDTC). The workers have been on leave for about two weeks since LLD's sightholder status was declined, but The Namibian newspaper quoted  Jonas Lumbu, the general secretary of the Mineworkers Union of Namibia (MUN), as saying that LLD had agreed to pay those workers' salaries until July 20. If a supply deal is not reached, the company reportedly would offer a severance package of one week's salary for every year of service.
