THE Fiji National Provident Fund has reiterated that its two portion of land near Sanasana Village leased by the iTaukei Land Trust Board was done legally.

The land located on Navo Island belongs to Tokatoka-o-Koroiosuna and according to TLTB has been leased to FNPF subsidiary — Natadola Bay Resort Limited.

However, according to Koroiosuna committee members, the two lots were leased without majority consent from unit members.

Committee chairman Kelemedi Tubu said they would wait for further meetings with the TLTB to resolve the issue.

"They said they will meet with us again and we hope this time around they give us the proper documents," he said.

FNPF chief executive officer Aisake Taito said the leases were properly issued by TLTB after all due requirements had been fulfilled.

"The lease issued to NBRL clearly states the conditions which will be honoured by NBRL," he said.

"The two lots were issued as part of the lease which includes other native lots leased from TLTB."

Meanwhile, TLTB general manager Alipate Qetaki has said another meeting with the landowners would be held to clarify the leasing of each land to NBRL.
