(Bloomberg) —
Eli Nefussy, co-CEO of Gemcanton emerald mine in Zambia’s Copperbelt province, asks Minister of Home Affairs Steven Kampyongo to reverse his deportation immediately, according to letter from Nefussy’s lawyer, Dickson Jere, which Jere provided to Bloomberg.

Nefussy was “abducted” by security officers, immigration officials Tuesday and held, not allowed to contact lawyers, before being deported: letter
Nefussy hasn’t been told reasons for deportation
Nefussy had “sharp differences” with another of the mine’s directors
Kampyongo didn’t answer three calls and a text message seeking comment
