Community leader Joe Moses explains that when a stay order was requested from a Magistrate, the Magistrate found in favour of the Capitalists. According to Joe, it was the same Magistrate who had issued the eviction order against the settlers.
One would think that in the interest of Justice the Magistrate would have stepped aside from hearing the case.
Joe says that the settlers counsels had then informed the Capitalists lawyers that an appeal would be lodged in the National Court.
Joe says that despite this notice given to the Capitalist’s counsels, the Capitalists demolished the homes of Paga Settlers.
According to Joe, this was a “demolition exercise” not an “eviction”.
The out of touch elite in Papua New Guinea love preaching to everyone else that they need to “change their attitude”. In reality, the most dangerous people in Papua New Guinea are not the squatter settlers but the out of touch elite who love being the compradors of capitalist pigs.
