Deadline for illegally obtained land settlement expires

The committee tasked with confiscating state-owned land that was allegedly acquired illegally has begun the next phase of its land repossession program, according to an official statement. The committee recommended that officials begin on Saturday clearing people from land who have not applied to retain it. Moreover, the committee also recommended coordinating with the General Authority For Reconstruction Projects & Agricultural Development to prioritize land that the state needs to build new infrastructure projects. An ultimatum by the committee was given to land holders to pay for inspection fees and legitimize their status by 14 June 2018, before being extended to 31 October 2019. Anyone who fails to comply by the deadline will have effectively defaulted on their right to contest the land, giving the state legal authority to reclaim it.
