Frustrations over logging run deep on Solomons' Vanikoro

From , 3:05 pm on 26 April 2017

Deep frustrations remain over logging activities in a part of Solomon Islands' Temotu province.

Operations by a Malaysian logging entity are at the heart of bitter divisions on Vanikoro Island, where ten men were arrested over a year ago for allegedly destroying logging equipment.

A Honiara-based teacher who is a Vanikoro native, Edward Pae, has recently been on his home island compiling updates on issues around logging.

According to him, the ten men were wrongly arrested.

He told Johnny Blades that like many locals, they were simply protesting their strong opposition to logging.
