Letter to the Editors, Solomon Star and Island Sun Newspapers.
I might be far from the local scene but not unaware of local social media reports last week in the Solomon Islands which gave voice to alleged serious threats made by at least one Asian Logging Contractors in relation to the alleged forced removal of settlers on the land claimed by Samlimsam.
If those threats could be substantiated by evidence then it would be entirely appropriate to report the allegation to the police for investigation.
Asian logging bosses, if the allegation raised are true, should be prevented from abusing their time in the Solomon Islands and prosecuted if evidence exists of making direct threats to persons and property.
