TLTB To Investigate Land Claims

The iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB) Reserves Commissioner Mosese Ratubalavu will be investigating cases of some land claims made by landowners.

TLTB had advertised the claims in yesterday’s Fiji Sun where it stated: “The iTaukei Reserves Commission wishes to inform the public on the details of the itaukei land that will be investigated during the formal inquiries from the 7th to the 27th of March, within the six provinces namely Lomaiviti, Nadroga, Ra, Tailevu, Rewa and Macuata.”

Altogether TLTB had advertised five (5) lots in Lomaiviti, one (1) in Nadroga, four (4) in Tailevu, two (2) in Rewa and six (6) in Macuata.

When contacted yesterday for a comment on this investigation, Fiji Sun was told he was on an official visit to the province of Serua.

The Roko Tui Macuata, Vilai Basalusalu, said the investigation by the Reserve Commission, when completed, would confirm landownership of land in dispute.

He said the investigation would provide a fair judgement to both parties.

Natogadravu district chief Semi Matalau said he fully supported the investigation as the outcome would be final and could not be debated by the losing party.

He said there were also some land in his district that TLTB Reserve should decide on the ownership.

The Natogadravu chief said he acknowledged the work of the Reserve Commissioner because it would stop land dispute.

Most of the lands involved were iTaukei land, schedule A and schedule B, freehold and extinct clan.
