040917LANDOWNER QUESTIONS MIRIORI
By Aloysius Laukai
A Panguna landowner today questioned who mandated PHILIP MIRIORI to say that because the ABG had no opposition, he was acting as the Opposition to the ABG.
The landowner was responding to a news release by MR MIRIORI against the ABG and its deals with the BCL which is owned by the PNG National Government, the ABG and the landowners themselves.
The former owner, RIO TINTO withdrew and gave shares to the PNG Government and the ABG plus the landowners.
The landowner called on MR. MIRIORI to meet with the ABG leaders instead of creating unnecessary tension by going straight to the media on issues that can be sorted out peacefully as Bougainvilleans.
The landowner said if the Landowners from the PANGUNA are greedy they must be prepared to compensate Bougainvilleans who fell fighting for Panguna.
