SoulPNG. GABRIEL KAPRIS ISN'T A LANDOWNER! A community leader from Rempi, furious over the absence of government representatives and ministers at the PMIZ forum, issues a scathing attack on Papua New Guinea's Commerce and Industry Minister accusing him of bulldozing the project and bypassing landowners. The locals are fighting the establishment of a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) which is expected to have relaxed labour laws and foreign affairs regulations. There are also plans to import up to 30 thousand foreign workers for the industries.
