About Bloodhound


Bloodhound was started in early 2004 in response to the outbreak of war in Darfur in April 2003. At that time human rights organisations and the humanitarian community were unable to gauge the full scale of the atrocities being perpetrated by the Government of Sudan.




Bloodhound has/is currently investigating the following subjects:

  • Africa Oil in Puntland, culminating in a filing to the Swedish Economic Crime Authority
  • Lundin Oil/Petroleum in Sudan, culminating in the report Justifying Blood Money

  • Darfur crisis, culminating in the report The Scorched Earth of Darfur

  • War crimes in Africa (currently still at the research stage)





Feed the dog! Bloodhound needs voluntary contributions to continue its research. The three founding members gave nearly 1500 hours of their free time to produce The Scorched Earth of Darfur, and Director Phil Clarke has so far (January 2018) given over 21 months / 3,600 hours of his time on a pro-bono basis to the Oil in Sudan (Lundin) campaign, 1 month / 172 hours to the Oil in Puntland campaign, plus a further 77 months / 13,250 hours on another project that requires additional funding to be completed.


Unsolicited/spontaneous and unearmarked donations are always welcome. Your help is needed for Bloodhound to carry on and to become more effective – if you want to support our projects, please give a donation.

Bloodhound has no wish to become yet another generator of opinion, and will instead focus on producing detailed documentation based on comprehensive research. Most of this will be released in the form of occasional reports, or as weblinks on this site to original information sources. Content on this page will therefore change infrequently.
