DENR, PNP and APECO seized 1,000 board feet lumber
CASIGURAN, Aurora, March 21, 2011-In line with Executive Order 23 issued by President Aquino directing a moratorium on tree-cutting in natural and residual forests nationwide, the composite team of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Forest Guard of Aurora Pacific Economic Zone seized at least 1,000 board feet lumber from Sitio Digian, Brgy. Cozo, Casiguran, Aurora owned by Arman dela Cruz including his power saw.
Casiguran Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer (CENRO) Alfredo Collado said that dela Cruz belonged to a tribe and was subject for inquest at the Regional Trial Court (RTC) but later decided to give him a chance to change a new life and not to do illegal activities again as a native on the place.
The said lumber was still in the custody of the forest guard of APECO and subject for travel at the office of the DENR for proper action. (Arnel Turzar, DZJO FM, CMN-Baler, Aurora)
