Police To Investigate Papuan Compound Land Sale

Share the News

The sale of the Papuan Compound playing field has now been brought to the attention of Lae police after a lands officer was sacked for facilitating the sale of the land.

Community leaders want the officer arrested and charged.

A petition was presented to the Morobe provincial government to revoke a land title given to a local businessman in LaeCity.

About two weeks later, there is still no decision made by the Provincial Executive Council to revoke the title.

The Papuan Compound community, however are still maintaining their stand. They want the provincial government to respond accordingly to their petition.

A junior lands officer was sacked for signing a land inspection report, which led to the playing field being sold.

This playing field was allegedly bought off in Port Moresby with documents facilitated by the lands officer.

The letter was supposed to be signed by the provincial administrator and sent to the lands secretary.

However, the officer signed the letter on behalf of the acting provincial lands advisor Jonah Suvi.

The community, through its spokesperson, has already reported the matter to police and they want justice brought to those involved in selling the land.
