O’Neill’s illegal logging: 382 days and counting…

382

It is now 382 days since Prime Minister Peter O’Neill was told that the SABL leases were unlawful and should be revoked.

It was on June 24, 2013 that he was given the reports of the SABL Commission Inquiry.

O’Neill has promised to cancel the leases and stop the illegal logging several times and three weeks ago he announced an NEC decision ordering the cancellation of some of the leases

But we are still waiting for the leases to be cancelled and the logging stopped.

For 382 days O’Neill has failed to implement the Commission of Inquiry findings, failed to revoke the SABL leases and been complicit in the illegal logging of forest resources by foreign logging companies.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has aided and abetted the theft of logs worth hundreds of million of kina and the destruction of thousands of hectares of pristine forest.
