Timehri squatters will not move to make way for airport expansion unless they are compensated

shot0009Now this is the danger Timehri north squatters are being faced with on a daily basis, and  they  say that they have been enduring this for years.

Now another attempt is being made to remove them from the place many have called home for years and they are not willing to do so without being  compensated and good alternative systems put in place. Yesterday we spoke to some of the aggrieved squatters who vowed to put up a fight until their demands are met.

Many of the squatters told this Newscast that they were not officially informed about the new development.

Some squatters have invested millions and built permanent structures. They told this Newscast that they were encouraged to do so by a former Housing Minister some years ago.

Transport Minister Robeson Benn on Friday revealed that his Government would make available 350 house lots at Yarrowkabra to accommodate the squatters. This move is to make way for the expansion of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

Benn made it clear that his Government will not be building any houses as far as he is aware.

It is not just the squatters who will be relocated; provision will also be made for the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and Guyana Prison Service to be removed.
