An international non-governmental organization with offices in London and Washington, Global Witness has uncovered evidence that shows China-linked timber company Congo King Baisheng Forestry Development is responsible for illegal logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo, exporting more than $5 million worth of illicit timber to China between June and December 2022.
