Land Owner Protests against Socfin’s Operation as Police Intimidation Continues

Green Scenery, a None-Governmental organization, monitoring large scale land investments in Sierra
Leone, has been informed that a ten-acre plantation of oil palm, cola nuts, coffee and cacao has been completely
destroyed by employees of Socfin Agricultural Company S.L. (SAC) in Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun District.  
The incident occurred in Kassay, one of the villages in the area leased by SAC to establish a large scale oil palm
plantation in the chiefdom. Edison A. Mattia, the land owner, says he never agreed to lease the land to the
government or the company. And he never received any money for it. Mattia is confident that the land belongs to
him and his biological children who’s “livelihood had been solely and wholly depending on the plantation now
totally destroyed”.
