Unregulated Thieving Of WWII Relics Continues

Share the News
Residents living at Paga Hill settlement have raised concerns over the removal of World War II relics.

They say they’ve sighted unidentified individuals going into the area at odd hours, taking bits and pieces.


They are calling on responsible authorities to safeguard the icons of historical significance.

The chaos began with the commencement of the 40m ring road being constructed by Curtain Brothers.


The road begins from Ela Beach and goes around to the Fairfax Harbour side. What used to be a Seventh Day Adventist Church was also demolished, as well as a settlement that once thrived here.


But the biggest damage done is the stealing of the World War II relics; historical icons.

Settlers say defence force personnel were on the scene only once last week after artillery shells were found here.


After that, some of the residents still living here alleged they spotted an unmarked vehicle taking off with some of the World War II relics some nights ago.


The question on everyone’s mind is where are the responsible authorities sanctioned to safeguard these iconic World War II relics?


Director of the National Museum Dr Andrew Motu last week said they’ve tried numerous times for stakeholders like the defence force to help intervene but to no avail.
