Government responds to land grabbing reports


    Government has responded to reports of land grabbing involving alleged State lands in Alenore Gardens, Arima.

    An article claimed that buyers were purchasing lands they were told are privately owned but were actually State lands.

    Responding to questions in the Senate today was Minister in the Ministry of Agriculture Nigel De Freitas, who said authorities, including the Commissioner of State Lands and police, looked into the matter.

    Mr De Freitas insisted that the matter is not one for government to resolve and must be settled by the parties involved.
