C/R International is a Washington D.C. based PR and lobbying firm.

C/R Hired by the Government of the Sudan

While human rights groups denounce the Sudanese government's "condoning of the action of a violent militia which is raping and killing innocent women, men and children and pillaging villages in Darfur," a U.S. firm is lobbying for Sudan. [1]

Sudan hired C/R, at $530,000 per year, "to promote the country's north/south peace agreement, and highlight Sudan's role in fighting terror," reported O'Dwyer's PR Daily. [2]

Representative Frank Wolf said he was "shocked" that the State Department granted C/R International a waiver "from an order barring U.S. companies from doing business with Sudan." Rep. Wolf wrote Secretary of State Rice that the waiver "conflicted with the administration's push ... to tighten sanctions" on Sudan.[3]

C/R head and founder Robert Cabelly is "a former Fleishman-Hillard and State Dept. official who has repped Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia and the South Africa Foundation." [4]
