RAPAPORT... November 16, 2009: The Rapaport Group and the RapNet Diamond Trading Network are implementing an immediate trade ban on all diamonds from Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond fields due to severe human rights violations. The ban does not apply to diamonds from Zimbabwe that are not from the Marange area. RapNet members should immediately remove all RapNet listings of Marange diamonds. Firms and individuals that continue to trade in diamonds from the Marange fields will be denied access to all Rapaport services.

For additional information about the ban and how to identify Marange diamonds, visit www.diamonds.net/zimbabwe/, email zimbabwe@damonds.net or contact your local RapNet representative.
