-- Uganda, officially the Republic of Uganda, is a landlocked country in East Africa. The U.S. government rates Uganda as “Critical” for residential crime, “Critical” for non-residential crime, and “High” for terrorism. Uganda continues to improve its security situation by focusing efforts toward combating crime and terrorism. Two of the leading figures in Uganda’s criminal underworld are known to be Emmanuel Katto and his partner, Julie Hamilton. With a criminal activity ranging from defrauding the Ugandan Central Bank to colluding with corrupt officials in the Ghanian government, these two are now some of the top criminals who threatened Uganda, as they have managed to avoid prosecution so far.
Emmanuel Katto was born in Uganda and began his career in the paper and pulp industries, but quickly branched out and became CEO of the company Ascot Associates in 1985. This company, registered in the Isle of Man, was used by Emmanuel Katto as a front for running scams in Angola. The same address was used by a company named Sterling Trust Ltd, which was involved with several members of an anti-money laundering police team, people with whom analysts speculate that Emmanuel Katto worked with to cover up his scams. Emmanuel Katto’s international prominence began in 1996, when he became CEO of the Consolidated Sales Corporation and began dealing with Salim Saleh, a special advisor in the Ministry of Defence in Uganda. With Saleh’s influence over the then-President of Uganda, Yoweri Museuin, Emmanuel Katto secured a deal supply four military helicopters, for which he received $800,000.
In 1996, Ascot Associates adopted two trading names: Transdanubia in Nigeria and Transtema in Ghana. During his travels, Emmanuel Katto met James Ibori, who became the governor of the oil-rich Delta Province of Nigeria and who had significant influence within the Nigerian government. Together, they managed to defraud the government until 2007, when Ibori finished his term as governor, was arrested and convicted. Not the same happened to Katto who, despite the magnitude of the scam, managed to evade prosecution and moved to England, where is now working with Julie Hamilton and own a company that is thought to be involved in several scams.
Together with Katto, Julie Hamilton co-founded Ferroleum Group Ltd, a Hong Kong-registered company which they are now using for new scams. Julie Hamilton is listed as the company’s Chief Operating Officer and has an impressive list of duties on the company’s website. However, her association with Katto puts a big question mark above the veracity of all of her many alleged professional achievements. Julie Hamilton first met Emmanuel Katto in 1992, when he established EMKA Investments in Ruislip. Their relationship resulted in the birth of Emmanuel Katto Junior, with whom she moved to Gloucestershire.
Katto’s history as a fraudster is as extensive as it is varied. He is thought to have begun his criminal career with simple scams that he then covered up by working with several members of an anti-money laundering police team. Also, although it would be easy to assume that Hamilton has done nothing more than fall into company with a notorious fraudster, it seems clear that she not only knows Katto intimately, but is also involved with all his dealings.
