In mid-2013 RAID made a submission to the US Treasury (OFAC) about US hedge fund (Och-Ziff) providing finance to a British company, CAMEC, which then paid for Zanu-PF’s 2008 campaign of violence that secured the re-election of Mugabe. RAID contacted a number of US pension funds that had invested in Och-Ziff including CalPERS and New Jersey (NJDI) public employee funds.  Only CalPERS replied.  In April 2014 RAID issued a new briefing that dealt with other questionable investments by Och-Ziff including in the DR Congo, which are also under investigation by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection to the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  The briefing was sent to the DOJ, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and to Treasury.
