July 14 (Bloomberg) -- Sierra Leone’s parliament amended a petroleum bill approved on July 12 to remove a clause that paid 5 percent of fiscal revenue from the oil industry to lawmakers.
The legislation was revised after President Ernest Bai Koroma refused to sign it into law, according to a letter from the secretary to the president, Osho Coker.
