NHC denies responsibility over Hohola Eviction

The National Housing Corporation has denlied any responsibility overthe Hohola eviction of an extended family last week Tuesday.

Acting Managing Director John Dege saidthe eviction was a private arrangement bythe landlord.

Atthe momentthe Gulf family has regained possession oftheir property.

Their Lawyer successfully took out interim restraining orders fromthe Waigani National Court. The order restrains police andthe new tenant from enteringthe property until a full trial is completed.

The matter will return to court this week Friday to get a trial date set.

Mr Dege said internal investigations confirmedthe property was surveyed and fully gazetted for outright sale. He saidthe affected tenants never made any rental payments to NHC since occupyingthe allotment.

NHC records indicate an unsettled rental bill of almost over K7, 000.
