PIA Press Release

Task Force readies MOA to resolve Malapiat land dispute


Tabuk, Kalinga (20 November) -- Task Force Malapiat is finalizing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between parties involved in the disputed agricultural land in Rizal town to resolve once and for all the problem that claimed lives the past years.

Atty. Kristian Wandag, Provincial Legal Officer and Task Force Malapiat Co-Chairman said the task force met on November 11 for the final draft of the MOA that contains provisions he believes are acceptable to and respected by all parties.

"As soon as the final draft is ready, it will be brought to the other parties in the area for their study and approval," Wandag said. He expressed hope that no more issues will be raised for the purpose of drawing for solutions and that both parties shall respect their obligations and responsibilities.

On the issue of expanding membership of the task force to include the Malapiat neighborhood association and their lawyer, Wandag said the membership of the task force is representative of all concerned.

"There is nothing to worry since the task force is an independent body. Those who think otherwise against the group should cast out their doubts since everything done is transparent," Wandag said adding that everyone willing to help solve the problem is welcome during meetings between the task force and the opposing parties.

Wandag cleared that the jetmatic pump confiscated is still under the custody of the Rizal police force to ensure that no expansion or improvement within the problem area is introduced in observance to the status quo order signed in June this year and while the task force is negotiating the issue.
