The member for Madang Bryan Kramer, will be looking into evictions being carried out in Madang town to see if they are done following the right process.
Mr. Kramer said he is aware of NHC issuing eviction notices to tenants, while a number of evictions have been carried out at the directive of the court.
He has since requested for more information, as well as the process and how they have arrived at these evictions.
This is to try and understand if those evictions were lawful, and understand the motivation behind them.
National Housing Corporation operates through the national department on housing.
It has a minister and an administrative structure.
But, Mr. Kramer said he does not support evictions. He believes there is a lot of corruption involved in acquiring public service homes.
The Madang MP will be talking to Urbanisation and Housing minister, John Kaupa, to get his position in relation to those evictions.
Mr. Kramer said if those evictions were not done following legal process, he will use his position as the member for Madang to take legal proceedings to stop those evictions.
The Madang MP’s response was in relation to the National Housing Corporation evicting long-time tenants living in public service homes.
A number of families were evicted this month by NHC who said they were acting on a national court order.
These evictions were carried out despite the Urbanisation and Housing Minister’s directive to stop all evictions, and the sale of state properties around the country.
