O’Neill’s illegal logging: 424 days and counting…

424 days

It is now 424 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 which detail the widespread fraud and mismanagement used by foreign logging companies to gain illegal access to over 5 million hectares of land.

O’Neill has promised to cancel the leases and stop the illegal logging several times.

In September 2013 O’Neill told Parliament:

“We will no longer watch on as foreign owned companies come in and con our landowners, chop down our forests and then take the proceeds offshore”

But, despite an NEC decision in June we are still waiting for the leases to be cancelled and the logging stopped.

For 424 days O’Neill has failed to revoke the SABL leases and has been complicit in the illegal logging of our forests 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.

    Come on. Why are the people of PNG keep on cries like baby’s. There are no one with backbone in PNG to stand up against this corruption. Peter O”Neill has put his 2 construction company’s in to do the construction ay the Stanley gas project before he signed the documents. Taking away the job opportunity for that land owners. Taking the money out of that province to enrich himself.
    Again and again this is happening. People of PNG stand up and claim what is righteouly yours. Do cries like little babies and not doing anything. Jelly fish no backbone. You all are pathetic
