Rights to land

Women and children were among landowners who stormed a property development taking place along the Poreporena Freeway in Port Moresby yesterday, demanding that their piece of land at portion 2585c be returned to them.
Landowners from the Mavara Idiba clan at Hanuabada accused the developer, Garamut Enterprise Ltd, of stealing their land.
They carried placards denouncing Garamut’s ownership of the land and that they wanted it back.
The villagers are arguing that the developer had engrossed on an extra 5ha of traditional land without their approval. – Nationalpic by JUNIOR UKAHA
