Murcia mayor dared to identify
DENR personnel in NNNP mess
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Andres Untal yesterday challenged Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano to identify the personnel of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, who assured him that there would be no problem in building his structures within the North Negros Natural Park in Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental.
In fairness to other DENR employees, who are doing their job religiously, he should name names, Untal said, adding that it may help solve the problem.
Montelibano was among those issued cease-and-desist orders, together with Salvador Benedicto Mayor Jose Max Ortiz, by the DENR for acquiring land and building structures within the NNNP. He, however, claimed that he has the approval of the DENR, who assured him that there would be no problem, since he is occupying a multiple use zone.
