A group of rogue villagers in the Solomon Islands claimed responsibility for slaughtering as many as 900 bottlenose dolphins earlier this week to retaliate against receiving little payment from a conservation group. We demand justice

International outrage over Solomon Islands' dolphin kill

MAKILI: The communities use that as an excuse to have a reason for them to do what they were doing. Our institute has played their part by providing small grants to the communities for them to set up small income-generation projects. Within the two years term, we first gave out some money to the community which was 300-thousand dollars SPD, that is Solomon Island dollars , and during the distribution of the funds to the government to individual members of individual families. The strategy that they set up in the community for the distribution of funds was not happy by other members of the community and we also went back to the community and had some sort of, discuss with them and they do agree that the funds should be channeled to the Fanalei people based in Honiara, in the city, but that second can't say that we gave it to them is worth about 400-thousand SPD dollars, Solomon Island dollars, and that money never reached the community. It was sink in Honiara by their own community members that, who were given the trustee for them.

After reading this, it seems as if this is a dispute over funds promised and actual fund received by villagers. My question is: "Which corrupt government official became rich over this?"

Small economic loans to villagers will not stop the slaughter of beautiful dolphins!
