Demolition Of War Relics Clarified

The Chief Executive officer of Paga Hill Development Company, Gudmundur Fridriksson, has come out clarifying that yesterday’s demolition of world war two relics was not their doing.

The 40 metre ring road around Paga Hill is sanctioned by the National Government and is being constructed by Curtain Brothers.


Paga Hill Development stands on its continued efforts to preserve and maintain WWII relics.


The demolition work being carried out is sanctioned by the national government through NCDC. Part of the ongoing development process of building road networks throughout the city.


But have the implementer’s over stepped the boundary this time round? Especially now that they’ve impinged upon Icons of national significance.


The top section of Paga hill is being developed into a world class tourist attraction by Paga Hill Development Company.


CEO Gudmundur Fridriksson emphasized his company had nothing to do with the demolition, that it was NCDC and Curtain Brothers.


He said PHDC has taken all steps possible to free bunkers on their side of the hill from illegal squatters, and make them available for a 69 year overdue inspection by the National Museum.


PHDC plans to restore the relics and feature them as part of the development.


In complying with the requireMen’s of its 5 Year Urban Development and subsequent 99 Year leases, PHDC undertook a number of environmental and historical artefact assessMen’s, engaging various government stakeholders as it worked to have a master plan approved.


PHDC currently is in the process of working with a number of agencies in Australia as well as the PNG National Museum and Art Gallery to take stock of the war relics.


When asked about why it has taken the National Museum such a long time to make an inventory of the world war two relics, this was their reply yesterday.
