Bougainville passes divisive foreign Mining Law

Bougainville Mining Bill Passed 

Aloysius Laukai | New Dawn

The Controversial bougainville mining Bill has been passed by the ABG house. 

The bill went through the 3rd reading to become a Bougainville law just after 1135 Bougainville Standard time. 

This now completes all the negotiations and dissatisfactions by factions of the communities throughout bougainville. 

The bill did not go un challenged but had to go through scrutiny by former combatants who demanded certain sections removed before they can allow the government to finally pass the bill. 

At the time of the passing of the bill the house was full to capacity as people witnessed the passing of the bill.
