"Regarding the information you requested, we can inform you that Tripoliven does not import rock from the company OCP", stated CEO of the Venezuelan company, Mr. Henrique Oropeza, in a mail to Western Sahara Resource Watch 20 February 2013.

Having observed 2 bulk vessels departing from the occupied territory lately, WSRW yesterday asked for clarification from Tripoliven whether the company is importing from Western Sahara.

The company also clarified that FMC Foret, a subsidiary of FMC Corp, still owns 33,33 percent of the total shares of the company.

Tripoliven was a substantial importer of phosphate rock from Western Sahara in previous years.
