I am gravely concerned that dlnr continues to ‘act’ dumb…. all the while the true landowner, we the Hawai’ian Subjects are calling fraud, corruption and collusion….
Retribution and reconciliation are in order so thanks Tom, glad that you are watchdogging the situation as you may be called as an expert witness in the upcoming lawsuits.
The FBI should be looking into that corrupt DLNR of Kauai, where members are getting sweet heart deals on Crown Lands meant to benefit native Hawaiians, but because most are former retired State legislatures, descendants of the Japanese ancestors of the sugar plantation era still paying $1 a year leases, which are subleased to other profit business adventures, making a fortune.
It is just not honorable or humane to get these dirt cheap leases and make huge profits at the expense of native Hawaiians who often die while awaiting home lots at the Hawaiian Homes Department, another corrupt State agency that carters to the politically connected and corrupt system of back scratching cronies.
