Government gave away land
20-05-2014 - SamoaObserver.

government gave away 18,500 acres of land to the Samoa Trust Estates Corporation (S.T.E.C.), which it should not have done.

That’s what a Parliamentary Committee has found, according to a report tabled and passed through Parliament last month.

The Primary Production, Commerce, Industry and Labour (P.P.C.I.L.) Committee on the S.T.E.C. Annual Report for the financial year ending June 30 2011 recommends this land, located at Lata, be reexamined.

The Committee is chaired by Leaupepe Tole’afoa Fa’afisi.

“The Corporation is still concerned in satisfying the provisions of the Act that rearranges its estates with the newly established Samoa Land Corporation (SLC),” the report reads.
