The Sir Donald Cleland Park in Madang and the green space opposite the Holy Spirit Cathedral are to be lost to commercial development. Lands Minister Benny Allen has granted commercial leases over the two pieces of land for development by a company called Dawan Investment Limited. The documents below show the sorry tale – including how the 2018 APEC Summit has been used to justify the land grab.

    I WISH TO CLEAR MYSELF ON A POST I MADE YESTERDAY.

    THE LANDS MINISTER HAS POWER KNOWN AS “MINISTERIAL APPROVAL.”.

    WITHOUT SEEING THE MINISTERS APPROVAL POSTED I WENT AHEAD AND SHARED ON PROCESS OF ACQUIRING PUBLIC RESERVED LAND BECAUSE THE IMAGES WERE NOT LOADED QUICK ENOUGH.

    MY APOLOGIES, NO OFFEND.
