Guinea: Government to pay compensation to expropriated Demoudoula’s residents holding titles
The Guinean government will compensate the residents of the Demoudoula classified forest whose homes were destroyed during the land recovering operation of last July 13th. However, only those holding a valid title to prove their ownership will receive the payment.
“The minister of Urbanism and Land Development calls all citizens holding a land title and whose homes have been affected during the mission to destroy all illegal constructions in the Demoudoula classified forest to submit the deed as soon as possible at his office for verification. Those whose titles will be found irregular will be rejected and any person involved in the falsification and provision of such document will be sued according to the Law,” reads a statement dated July 19th from Minister Louncény Camara himself.
The minister’s intervention comes a day after political opponent Cellou Dalein Diallo went on the site of eviction and declared “inadmissible” the “violent” expropriation, to which took part the army.
