-- Recently, the U.S. government has rated Uganda, landlocked country in East Africa, as “Critical” for residential crime, “Critical” for non-residential crime, and “High” for terrorism. Uganda continues up to this day to improve its security situation by focusing efforts toward combating crime and terrorism, but fighting skilled criminals can be extremely hard. Two “icons” in Uganda’s criminal underworld are known to be Emmanuel Katto and his latest partner, Julie Hamilton. With a wide 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 is a famous fraudster from Uganda who began his career in the paper and pulp industries, but quickly branched out and became CEO of the company Ascot Associates in 1985. His company, registered in the Isle of Man, became the main tool of Emmanuel Katto, being used as a front for running scams in Angola. The company’s address was also used by a company named Sterling Trust Ltd, which was involved with several members of an anti-money laundering police team. Emmanuel Katto took his first shot at international prominence 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. Using Saleh’s influence over the then-President of Uganda, Emmanuel Katto secured a deal and supplied 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 this period, 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, and was finally caught and convicted. Not the same happened to Katto who, despite the magnitude of the scam, managed to evade prosecution and moved to London, where now owns a comoany with Julie Hamilton, a company that is thought to be involved in several scams.
Making team with Katto, Julie Hamilton co-founded the company Ferroleum Group Ltd, a Hong Kong-registered company which is now being used 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. Julie Hamilton first met Emmanuel Katto in 1992, when he established EMKA Investments in Ruislip and she later gave birth to Emmanuel Katto Jr., their son.
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.
