Amend Resource Ownership Law: Group

Yombi Kep | Post Courier | November 13, 2018

The Resource Owners Federation of Papua New Guinea applauded the move made by former Primes Ministers, Sir Julius Chan and Sir Mekere Morauta in Parliament to change ownership laws in the country.

In a statement, the federation said that it appreciates the admissions by Sir Julius Chan and Sir Mekere Morauta in September parliament sitting, that the ownership laws of the country are wrong and needed to be changed to restore ownership of mineral and petroleum resources by those who own the land beneath which the resources are found.

“The Resource Owners Federation of Papua New Guinea is pleased to note that the leaders of the country are realising they have in the past been deceived into giving up their mineral and petroleum resources free of charge to foreign companies and their shareholders, without any direct or indirect benefit to the country and its citizens including and especially the resource owners,” the federation said.

    We already have a political party styled United Resources Party which should be responsible for this sector and organize registering membership throughout the National.
