The Mataqali Naqereqere of Nadarivatu held a celebration over the weekend to mark the judgement passed by the Lautoka High Court to return their land which was being leased.
Landowner, Joasa Yacakuru says the land was being leased by the iTaukei Land Trust Board and the Fiji Hardwood Corporation for 4 years, however the Mataqali had been wanting the land back for agricultural purposes.
Yacakuru says despite the legal process taking 4 years, they were confident of the decision going their way.
He says the Mataqali has big plans for the 300 arce land which is situated in Nadarivatu.
Yacakuru adds that the Mataqali had taken the matter to court and won the case, however this was appealed which they again won.
