The Village Council of Gataivai Savai'i has expressed fears about the alienation of customary lands, warning that the three bills before Parliament proposing wholesale changes to the Judiciary, could make matters worse.

The concerns by the Village Council are contained in a written submission they provided for the Special Parliamentary Committee holding public consultations on the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020, Land and Titles Bill 2020 and the Judicature Bill 2020.
