Aggrieved landowners and land-users in Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun, call on Human Rights Commission to intervene against human rights violations by Paramount Chief and chiefdom authorities in Socfin operation area

More than a hundred representatives of landholding families from 36 villages affected by a large- scale investor in oil
palm plantation in Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun District, have signed a resolution stating that they disassociate
themselves from any lease agreement signed on their behalf by the Paramount Chief and chiefdom authorities of
Malen Chiefdom with the Government of Sierra Leone. Furthermore, it says “…we will no longer allow the Socfin
Agricultural Company personnel and or their machines to enter upon or operate on our land.” The resolution was
issued with a letter written by MALOA, an association of affected landowners and users in Malen Chiefdom, on
behalf of affected landholding families and addressed to the Human Rights Commission for their intervention against
human rights abuses such as intimidation. The document was signed in Pujehun on 1
st
 of December 2012 at a
meeting of aggrieved landholding families from Malen Chiefdom.
