Kairuku Hiri MP Calls for Commission of Inquiry to be Sped Up

The Member for Kairuku Hiri, Peter Isoaimo, is urging the government to speed up the Commission of Inquiry.

He said that the people of Kairuku are owed an explanation and an apology.

Isoaimo also said that once the commission of inquiry is complete, and if the Manumanu land deal is deemed illegal, the people of Kairuku would want to use the land for agriculture.

The portions of land listed in the Manumanu land deal, Portion 154, 406, 421, 422, 423 & 424 cover a vast land mass with a partially dense population.

Member for Kairuku Hiri speaking at the road junction leading into Pinu and Manumanu, asked for the commission of inquiry to be sped up.

He said that he expected an apology from particular Ministers and Members of Parliament who said that there were no villages at the portions.

The Member for Kairuku Hiri also said agriculture was the best option for his people. The Portion of land was ear-marked for a multi-million rice project that was announced early last year.

Meanwhile, Customary Land Owners want the Prime Minister to include their terms of reference in the commission of inquiry.

Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, announced for the commission of inquiry early this month and the suspension of two ministers and department heads.
