ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Sierra Leon President Ernest Bai Koroma to impose a temporary ban on all timber exports. The government of Sierra Leone has followed its temporary ban on the export of minerals, with a similar embargo on timber exports, as it seeks to re-establish control over the export of raw materials. Koroma has introduced the ban until the government can introduce sufficient safeguards in the form of monitoring and registration of all commercial felling.
