UGANDA: Oil Probe MPs propose harsh penalties for graft

: : Any Minister, Government technocrat or investor who will negotiate an oil deal that could potentially cause financial loss to the Government could be liable to life imprisonment or even face the death penalty. This was among the key proposals made by MPs on the Natural Resources Committee while scrutinizing the Petroleum Exploration, Development and Production Bill 2012. In their report that will be presented to the whole House soon, the MPs also want to introduce a proposal to enable MPs to amend other corruption related laws to enable such penalties to be extended to all Government sectors.
