The Republic of Sierra Leone's President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah marked the first anniversary of his country's peace by vowing to transform the diamond industry. He spoke at the June 20 state opening of the second session of the second Parliament. While acknowledging that the diamond industry has not brought under full control the problems of "smuggling, exploitation, cheating and chaos," Kabbah said "the government is committed to bringing about a well-regulated and transparent diamond mining and trading regime for the benefit of the state and people of Sierra Leone."
Kabbah spelled out three measures the government was taking on advice from the World Bank and industry experts. They include: • Enforcing existing diamond mining and trading legislation and empowering the Sierra Leone police as the primary body for the enforcement of that legislation. • Inviting an international diamond mining company to determine and recommend the conditions which must be implemented in order to bring maximum revenue to Sierra Leone. • Regularly publishing the value of diamonds exported, the tax funds raised and the disposal of that revenue.
Kabbah said he commissioned a high-resolution magnetic survey in April, carried out by the Africa Diamond Holdings Ltd. This survey covered the Koinadugu and Kono districts. Similar surveys of the rest of the country are planned. One objective of these surveys is to determine the extent of existing Kimberlite diamond deposits and discover new ones.
