Fiji’s Native Land Trust Board (NLTB) is seeking legal advice on how to collect $25 million in rental arrears owed by native land tenants.
NLTB general manager Alipate Qetaki told FijiLive that the arrears are from the past 10 years.
“We are however trying out new procedures which have seen them recover $10m in the last 15 years,” said Qetaki.
He stressed that the NLTB could also issue a legal order to get tenants to vacate land immediately should they refuse to pay their outstanding debts.
