Monrovia, May 12, 2019 – The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) has commenced public engagements in the implementation of the Land Rights Law.
The Land Rights Law was signed by President George Manneh Weah on September 19, 2018 and published on October 10, 2019 for public consumption.
On Thursday May 9 and Friday May 10, 2019, all four commissioners of the Liberia Land Authority including the Acting Chairman, Atty. J. Adams Manobah were in the cities of Kakata and Marshall, Margbi County to explain to a diverse range of land stakeholders’ key provisions in the Land Rights Law.
The objective of these engagements is to increase awareness of the general public on the Land Rights Law and provide pertinent information on regulations and guidelines emanating from the Law.
The LLA has been developing regulations and guidelines to implement the Law including improving processes and procedures to conduct a nationwide validation process of tribal certificates.
The holder of a valid Tribal Certificate issued prior to the Effective Date of the Land Rights Law for which a Public Land Sale Deed was not obtained is granted a maximum of twenty-four (24) months to finalize and complete all the steps necessary to obtain a Public Land Sale Deed.
The Law also provides that “A nation-wide Confirmatory Survey to confirm the boundaries of all Customary Lands shall commence within twenty-four (24) months of the Effective Date of this Law”.
At the Kakata and Marshall engagements, Commissioners Ellen O. Pratt, Kula L. Jackson and J. Josephus Burgess, Sr. held interactive and productive sessions with the citizens in those areas, mainly of whom were chiefs, elders, women and youth groups, among others.
The public engagements is being supported by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Eligibility Team under the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).
The LLA has meanwhile put in place an effective Land Deeds Registration System and actions to mitigate the falsification of land documents.
The Liberia Land Authority has the statutory authority to fully implement the Land Rights Law.
