POLICE continue to receive complaints from landowners regarding the unlawful use of their land or the misuse of funds.

"We have a lot of complaints lodged to us from landowning units and the complaints differ from lease payments, misuse of funds and unlawful leasing of land," said police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia.

Ms Ragigia said police had been holding a series of discussions with all the parties involved.

"We have been holding a series of meetings with landowners and the TLTB to sort out these concerns that are raised to us," she said.

She said senior police officers had been assigned to attend the meetings and address the issue personally.

"In the meeting, both parties are given a chance to express their concerns and we discuss ways to address their concerns."

"The latest meeting we had was in Lomawai, Nadroga."
