Ex FDN ….. Land Bank Landowners less protected than Freehold Landowners…… Now Second Rate landowners

The Frank Land Bank exposed

May 2, 2014

The Frank Land Bank boss, Permanent Secretary for Lands Tevita Boseiwaqa, has admitted that landowners cannot take their complaints about how their lands are being administered by the Land Bank to court.  Instead Boseiwaqa said landowners can take their complaints up “through mediation and dialogue between stake holders outside the court”.  Only iTaukei landowners are subject to this kind of law.  Owners of freehold land can take their grievances to court, but iTaukei landowners have to settle for “dialogue”, begging for their rights instead of claiming then like other citizens.  We are all Fijians now, with a common and equal citizenry, so why isn’t iTaukei land afforded the same protection as freehold land?

  1. Looks like Te Qesa will be reshuffled out soon. He has broken the military dictatorship’s number 1 cardinal sin – admitting to the truth.
