No sanction for political web that supported Concord Pacific’s illegal logging
The National Court has awarded damages of K226 million to the women and children of Kiunga-Aiambak whose lives and forests were destroyed through illegal logging by Concord Pacific.
But the victims of this tragedy are unlikely to ever see a single toea in compensation as Concord Pacific exited the scene many years ago.
Menawhile the politicains and bureaucrats who facilitated and supported Concord Pacific’s illegal activities or who chose to turn a blind eye to what they knew was an illegal and destructive logging operation walk freely among us and will never pay for their own crimes.
This is just one more example of the fact that our laws protect the evil and corrupt while the innocent victims of their greed and selfishness suffer the consequences largely unnoticed.
