National Court of Papua New Guinea

A group of customary landowners sought judicial review of a Special Agriculture and Business Lease (SABL) issued by the Minister for Lands and Physical Planning to an oil palm plantation developer.  The 99-year lease allowed the developer to clear land, harvest and sell logs, and plant oil palm. The landowners alleged that their land had been acquired by the state without proper consent and prior consultation, in violation of the Land Act.
