The iTaukei Land Trust Board is advising the public that there has been a number of attempts by individuals to sell iTaukei land in Fiji.
This is being done without following the proper process as stipulated under the law.
TLTB has been notified through its whistleblowing hotline that an individual by the name of Sheik Naseem has attempted to sell some residential and commercial lots along the Nadi Back Road.
They have been informed that its logo is being used on a subdivision plan and advertised on the Nadi Expats Market Facebook page where 20 lots are being sold for $120,000 each.
TLTB confirms they did not issue any development lease to Sheik Naseem nor it approved a subdivision on the site that is currently advertised and therefore the advertisements are not to be taken as legitimate dealings.
It is reiterating that by law, unless all dealings in iTaukei land are sanctioned by TLTB, they cannot be taken as valid.
