Aly Verjee, 2013/03/14. Is all well in the teak forests of South Sudan? [Article] African Arguments. Accessed online.

Good-quality piece of investigative journalism, centering on the ethical standards of the Equatoria Teak Company, the Central Equatoria Teak Company, and their majority owner, Maris Capital. It uncovers a faulty claim by ETC to being certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and also explains some of the practical difficulties of certification processes. But it concludes that the fostering of transparency and responsibility in forestry companies is the best way forward for the teak logging sector, in view of the widespread alternative of illegal and highly wasteful logging.
