Logging brawl puts one in hospital


A brawl over a logging operation on Vella la Vella has placed one person at the Gizo Hospital, while others were questioned by Gizo Police.

Report reaching this paper states that a brawl broke out between two landowning groups earlier this week as a result of disagreement over a piece of land.

It states that one person sustained severe injuries on his head and was transported to Gizo hospital for treatment.

An eye witness who wants his name withheld told this paper a group of people believed to be those taking part in the brawl were seen at Gizo Police Station yesterday.

When contacted, Gizo Police confirmed receiving reports about the incident but were unable to provide details.

But one thing the police do share is that the land under dispute is currently pending at the High Court.
