SIERRA LEONE BAR ASSOCIATION
PRESS RELEASE

The Government of Sierra Leone in a press release issued on Wednesday, the 19th November, 2008 instructed the Ministry of Lands, Country Planning and the Environment to immediately put a MORATORIUM on all land transactions (State and Private) in the Western Area.

The Bar Associations view is that the Government cannot unilaterally put a moratorium on private land transactions without agreeing with private land owners. The Association therefore considers such action of Government a breach of the right of Private Ownership of land in the Western Area.

The Association is therefore urging Government as a matter of urgency to review this decision, in so far as it relates to transactions of private lands in the Western Area so as to avoid unwarranted litigations.

DATED THE 28TH DAY OF NOVEMBER, 2008.
EASMON N. B. NGAKUI
SECRETARY GENERAL
SIERRA LEONE BAR ASSOCIATION
