Comment on the picture,

Dan Gertler, who was photographed in a mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2012, was initially sanctioned in 2017.

The Biden administration recently re-imposed sanctions on Israeli businessman Dan Gertler for alleged massive corruption in the lucrative mining sector in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Journalist Franz Wilde assessed his remarkable rise and alliance with former President Joseph Kabila who saw him be appointed as a Congolese diplomat.

When the United States imposed sanctions on the mining magnate in 2017, it appointed President Donald Trump’s attorney to withdraw them.
