The disputed title to the 234 acres of land in Kawa will go to trial on June 22nd, according to the Kau Calendar.
Abel Simiona Lui, seen here outside Kona court on Tuesday, has lived on the land for decades, and his supporters regard him as a konohiki. The county says he does not have title to the land, and wants Lui evicted so a Public Access and Open Space land purchase can be finalized.
Uncle Abel has had numerous high profile run ins with authorities over the land, and for the last year Abel has stood by the side of the highway protesting the county’s effort to buy the land.
Meanwhile, a new blog has been started by the Kawa Ohana detailing Abel’s latest legal battle, at this address: www.moku-o-keawe-ohana.com/kawaa-blog/
