Revoke Land

State has power to revoke leases

Parkop says many of the ongoing court battles between the National Capital District Commission (NCDC) and companies or individuals over state land can be avoided if the Lands Minister and Secretary revoke leases given under suspicious circumstances.

‘The minister and Secretary for Lands, they can just one go, clean it out, say that it belongs to the public, and that’s it. They have the power to revoke whatever lease that has been granted out.

“Because at the end of the day, the land that is in the city that belongs to the state and remains state land,” Parkop said.
