Lack of GCC means Native Land disputes have nowhere to go.

NLC records can’t be changed

Records in the Native Lands Commission (NLC) cannot be changed says the Deputy Permanent Secretary for iTaukei Affairs, Colonel Apakuki Kurusiga.
Colonel Kurusiga was replying to queries by the Fiji Sun regarding claimants of chiefly titles who were disputing the NLC records.
“No one can dispute the records in the NLC,” he said.
He said all information in the NLC were sworn statements taken from elders around the country.
Colonel Kurusiga said in any traditional dispute the NLC had all the answers however they would only intervene when requested.

  1. Mr. Kurusiga why can’t the records be challenged, the only records that can’t be changed is GOD’S law. All records were sworn statement by bias people like you. Why can’t you use your resources that’s available to you, to do DNA TESTING to the dispute party. You are just another Dick Head who cannot right the wrong.

    ULUKAU

  4. Va cava ke lasu tu na bubului. I once read that: nothing is permanent in this world but change. The bloody thing can be changed if there is reasonable grounds.

  5. Tu Sai
    O iko na kai Korea,,,,,kua ni mai siova na ka baleta na kai viti…..
    Ulu vaka qani tivoli!!!

  6. Vei kemuni na noda na NLTB kei na NLC e rua na vale ni volavola e sa vaka dravudravua taka na kawa i Taukei. E sega madaga ni dua na taukei ni qele e millionaire ,e dina o SSS mera DNA taki o ira na vei vala taka tiko nai tutu kei na qele, Na DNA nai toqa e solia mai na kalou vei keda yadudua na tamata.

  7. For justice and correction of any past corruption and illegal transaction , there will be need for government to enact a law for formation of truth and reconciliation commission to receive and manage any verification , investigation and correction of chiefly titles, land owning unit and freehold land restoration / transfer-back to original owners as in VKB .

    Otherwise at the end of day all the people who were involved in stealing, theft, corrupt transactons , will answer to GOD and on being guilty will end up in HELL .

    Some LOU in Fiji do need to get help to restore their rightful assets and we hope and pray that at least one political party will add this in manifesto for election.

  8. It is very funny that the very same person who led the group to investigate Fijian Institutions are saying that they cannot be changed. He was leading a group called IITTIF in 2007 – 2009 whereby they are commissioned by the President then to investigate and recommend reforms for all I’Taukei Institutions such as TLTB, NLC, Provincial Offices and some other institutions….. One of their recommendations is to set up a ‘Land Summit’, this is like a new Veitarogivanua.. Their investigations and report was put together, it is called the ‘Kurusiga Report’ or ‘Kurusiga Commission’.

    Na leqa kei na veilecayaki ni Kawa i Taukei e vu mai na bubului lasu kei na i tukutuku lasu e sa tukuni tu qo ni sa na sega ni rawa ni veisautaki. E da mai bobula tu e na lawa ni koloni kei na lasu e tu ena Veitarogivanua sa oti. O cei tale me na vakadodonutaka? O keda sara ga na i’Taukei, me da tu vakatagane me da vakadodonutaka. Sega ni yaga, me da kaya tiko ni sega ni rawa ni na veisau, baleta e da kila kece tu ni levu nai tukutuku e cala tu…

    E levu na i Tutu vaka Turaga e veibataki tu ka ra levu e ra laki tini tiko ena Vale ni Veilewai, ka ra laki lewa tiko mai na Kai Idia o cei me Turaga. Baleta ni sega ni vakacegu na kaiviti ena lewa ni NLC (tribunal) baleta ni ra kila deivaki tu ni cala na i tukutuku e tu ena Veitarogivanua (NLC).

    E levu na qele e veibataki tu baleta ni cala na soli tukutuku ena veitarogivanua sa oti! …. E tukuni e nai Vola Tabu e vica na ka e yavavala kina na vuravura. Vei keda na Kawa i Taukei, e rua (2) na ka e yavavala tu kina ko Viti;
    1) Ni Turaga na tama wale;
    Qo kevaka e laki turaga e dua e sega ni kena kawa dina se cala ni veiliutaki.
    2) Ni tavuki na Qele;
    Qo kevaka e volai cala e dua na tiki ni qele, se taukeni vakayavusa, mataqali se tokatoka..se na cala ni butu qele.

    Vinaka vakalevu………
