The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is investigating claims that its personnel were involved in the illegal sale of land within the Northern Negros Natural Park in Salvador Benedicto town to private individuals, many of whom have built vacation houses.

Those found to be involved will face appropriate sanctions, Butch Marquez, DENR VI technical director for protected areas, told the DAILY STAR yesterday.

Marquez said a DENR team began the investigation two weeks ago and findings have not been submitted yet.moremoremore

Jalandoni hits PNoy
on peace talks


Former priest Luis Jalandoni said President Benigno Aquino III runs the risk of destroying chances for negotiated peace with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, with more than two years left of his term, by his acts of violating the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law.

Jalandoni, a Negrense, chairs the NDFP negotiating panel. In a statement it issued, he cited the attack of the framework and foundation agreement of the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations, and violation of the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees by arresting and detaining their consultants, and JASIG protected personnel, among others.moremoremore
