Fiji expat landowners mount campaign against travel to Fiji

From , 4:04 pm on 7 December 2016

A group representing some foreign landowners in Fiji says it'll be mounting a campaign against travel to the country as a protest over land law changes.

The Fiji Landowners Association says many foreign landowners are having to sell off their land cheaply to avoid hefty fines brought in with changes to the Land Sales Act two years ago.

The association's founder, Dave Rand, told Ben Robinson-Drawbridge the travel ban is a way of shining a light on the thousands of foreign landowners who are affected and frightened.
