Website removes island sale advert

AN advertisement of the lease of an island in the Yasawa Group that was featured on an international website, which auctions privately-owned islands, has been removed.

According to the operators of the website, the display was removed after one of the owner's representatives asked that the listing be taken down.

The island, owned by the mataqali o Natalau of Yasawa-i-rara Village on Yasawa Island, was featured on the website earlier this week.

The iTaukei Land Trust Board earlier revealed it knew nothing about the lease of the island

TLTB said it had exclusive rights to lease iTaukei land on behalf of the iTaukei landowning under the iTaukei Land Trust Act Cap 134.

"No individual member of a unit can authorise the leasing of his or her unit's land," he said.

"The consent of the majority of members is necessary. TLTB has the final say on whether to grant a lease of any iTaukei land."

Meanwhile, police said investigations on the proposed lease of the island were continuing.
