LISBON (Reuters) – A law that allowed Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich to become a Portuguese citizen due to his alleged descent from Sephardic Jews has been amended, but the changes will not be retroactive, the foreign minister said on Wednesday.

“The decree introduces a requirement that (applicants) have an effective connection with Portugal,” Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva said, describing it as a “mechanism” to prevent the law from being “tampered with”.
