Problems with Private Property in Honduras

Sugar producers are demanding respect for legitimate ownership of 10,000 hectares of plantations and mills currently under dispute.

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

The Association of Sugar Producers of Honduras (APAH) is demanding respect for the legitimacy of the possessions of mill owners and independent growers in light of the situation where 10,000 hectares of various properties are subject to litigation. "... concerns are being raised over the fact that the argument over the agrarian ceilings are leaving in question the legitimacy of private property."

"It's important that the assumption be that the millers and sugar cane producers are legitimate owners having acquired their land in legitimate and legal fashion," said executive director of APAH, Carlos Melara, according

"It is leaving much to interpretation, we demand that this clarification is made, all of the lands have been acquired, paid for, purchased by the millers," Melara said.
