Donors misled on Tina hydro
THE Government is sitting on a Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] designed to speed up work on the nation’s multi-million dollar Tina River Hydro scheme, it was revealed yesterday. “Both the last and this government have been sitting on the MOU for the last five years,” Paramount Chief Walton Naeson told Island Sun. Island Sun has obtained a copy of the unsigned MOU. Mr Naeson said lawyers who prepared the MOU in consultation with the stakeholders in 2012 were paid by Dr Derek Sikua’s government. It was to be signed between the Solomon Islands Government and Tina River Hydropower Landowners Council.
