land had been repossessed from farms hills animal pens empty sheds ponds dams and rainwater drainage canals.

landowners were compensated for the acquisitions.

the committee has also seized 200 equipment used for encroachent during operations.



'the committee demands that citizens substantiate land claims" he said. 'citizens who fail to do so will be deemed illegal occupiers and instructed to vacate the land within a period of 10 days."

'refusal to comply will result in forced repossession and occupiers will be liable to pay associated costs" he said.

land encroachment has dropped 80 percent over the past five years thanks to the availability of equipment for repossessing illegally seized lands he said. 'the committee's awareness campaigns on the matter are yielding good results."

'a culture against land grabbing is taking root among the citizens since they know that the committee is operating in their general interest" he said.

equipment owners on illegally occupied land will be fined sr50000 and their equipment detained for 30 days for second-time offenses.

first-time violators will be liable to pay anywhere between sr2000 and sr10000 while third-time encroachers will have their machinery confiscated and will face prison time.
