Logging in NIP

Logger accused of defying customary protocol

Jonathan Mesulam said he has given the firm seven days’ notice to compensate and remove their logging machines.

On the 6th of January, the landowners put up the gorgor plant at the logging site as taboo; a custom in New Ireland society which bars individuals from entering another person’s territory, and one which developers in the province are all too familiar with.

However, the company did not honour this customary protocol. Instead, they removed the gorgor and continued operating.
