DAR NegOr to install CARP
beneficiaries in Mabinay


After a few failed attempts last year, the Department of Agrarian Reform in Negros Oriental soon conduct a survey and install the beneficiaries in the Diaz Hermanos estate in Brgy. Bactic, Mabinay town, that was covered by the government’s Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.

Around 223 farmer-beneficiaries had earlier received their individual Certificates of Land Ownership Award from the DAR, after the Diaz Hermanos estate was covered by the CARP in 2011. However, the installation was stalled several times after a third parties claiming to be regular farm workers of the Diaz estate opposed it.

Provincial Agrarian Reform officer Stephen Leonidas said the opposing group was given a chance to file a petition for inclusion last year but, has failed to do so until now.

Special validation
training ongoing

Around 18,000 households in Negros Oriental, affected by tropical storm “Pablo” in December last year, will receive assistance from the national government next month, a government press release said.

Thess Garcia, national deputy project manager, said the Department of Social Welfare and Development, through its National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction, will begin the special validation program of “Pablo” victims.

Garcia is in Dumaguete City as a resource person in the training for field staff for the special validation, that started yesterday. The training will be held in two batches, first on Monday to Wednesday for those from Cebu and Siquijor, and Wednesday to Friday for Negros Oriental and Bohol delegates.

CHR probes
maltreatment of inmates


The Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental is investigating reports of alleged abuses of inmates by Bais City policemen, its special investigator, Jess Cañete, said yesterday.

Cañete said they received reports that some Bais City cops are maltreating inmates detained at the lockup facility of the police station, and that this has been going on for some time.

Although being held for various offenses, detainees still have rights that must be protected, he added.
