Predictions proven wrong, says PM

WE have proven wrong every lie and falsehood peddled by political parties about land security and the imminent collapse of the pine industry. This was the message Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama delivered to about 2800 landowners and Fiji Pine Group of Companies workers during a $7million lease security bonus payment at Drasa, Lautoka yesterday.
“We all know what lies I’m talking about,” he said. “My opponents have been in your communities before, making doomsday predictions about where this industry was headed, saying you would not see the benefits of your resources and even saying your land would be taken if your leases weren’t renewed.
