All landowners’ land information, trust funds and investment records are safe says iTaukei Land Trust Board General Manager Tevita Kuruvakadua.

His comments comes after a fire at the iTaukei Land Trust Board on Sunday (25th March 2018).

In a statement, Mr Kuruvakadua said there has been a lot of negative information and comments in public and on social media.

He said these were incorrect.

“Although police forensic investigation is underway, all we can say now is that all landowners’ land information, trust funds and investment records are safe,” he said.

The fire started from an electrical fault at the Counter Service Area at Level 1 of the TLTB Building on Sunday evening.

Mr Kuruvakadua reiterated that all public speculations that hard copies of land records and other landowners’ information were destroyed are incorrect.

“None of our key records whether they are stored digitally in our IT server or physically in the office were affected. That was why we continued as normal on Tuesday (27th March 2018) even though we have to close off our office on Monday (26th March 2018) for the safety of our staff and to allow the Police and National Fire Authority to conduct their investigation and assessment. But in any case, our records are properly backed-up at an off-site location in Tamavua to support our business continuity plan,” he added.

“Our Cashier and the Landowners’ Registration Team have been relocated to the Ground Floor where tenants can pay their rents and landowners’ registration can be made.

“At this stage, all TLTB services for landowners, tenants and all its stakeholders continue as normal.”

Mr Kuruvakadua said the building and all its contents were fully insured but the assessment to determine the value of the damage was continuing.
