land for squatters...but what's the price

This brief from Radio Jamaica notes that the government is buying 83.4 acres of land to rehouse squatters. But if, as is reported, it wants the 200 squatter families to reimburse the $52.5 million purchase price, each parcel will cost $262,500.

Just a guess, but I'd reckon that if they had that kind of money, these families wouldn't be squatters in the first place.
