The Catholic church in Papua New Guinea is angry a logging company has encroached onto its land.

The coastal land at Put Put in East New Britain is the site of a mission and seminary.

The Archbishop of Rabaul, Francesco Panfilo, told Don Wiseman that in recent weeks a Malaysian company has moved on the site, started clearing it,  and appears to want to use it as a logging base.
