The Land Court of Tonga has stopped a man from evicting his aunty from his registered land in Ma'ufanga. The man’s Aunt (52) had been living on the town allotment for all of her life. The court on last week ordered the Minister of Lands to cancel the man’s deed of grant over the property after it was ruled that the Minister and his officers did not make sufficient enquiries into the availability of the land before it was registered to the nephew.
