Samoa opposition against citizenship sale
19 jan. 2015 - RNZI.
The opposition Tautua Samoa party says it rejects proposed legislation which offers citizenship to foreign investors who can provide two million US dollars to the country.
The bill is expected to be tabled for debate in next week's first parliamentary session of the year.
The opposition leader, Palusalue Faapo II, says the law would sell the country to overseas investors.
He says there are already good incentives in place to attract foreign businesses.
