In a state­ment yes­ter­day, the de­part­ment said the com­pany has the rights to de­velop the area as it is no longer un­der the Sarawak govern­ment.

“The old air­port land lo­cated in Lu­tong area, now known as Lot 1363, Block 3, Miri Dis­trict Con­ces­sion Land has been is­sued with a land ti­tle to a lo­cal devel­oper com­pany on March 30, 2017 to be de­vel­oped,” said the state­ment.

The state­ment also said in­ves­ti­ga­tions on com­plaints about land dredg­ing in the area have al­ready been con­ducted.

“The re­sult of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that land dredg­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in the area were site clean-up works and dredg­ing of drainage sys­tems by landown­ers,” said the state­ment.
