Gov Padaca wants confiscated logs auctioned

Ilagan, Isabela (8 October) -- The provincial government through Governor Ma. Gracia M. Padaca has expressed intention to dispose of confiscated logs from illegal loggers that are impounded at the Provincial Gymnasium here.

The sales, if sold at public auction, will be used to finance the provincial government's other programs, projects and activities.

Gov Padaca said there is a need to dispose them now to prevent them from future damage caused by termites infestation and rotting.

But Gov. Padaca was informed and cautioned by the environment department here that only the Department of Environment and Natural Resources- Natural Resources Development Corporation has the authority to sell or auction in public the said forest products.

It is recalled that from the time the Task Force has operated for more than a year now, it has confiscated more than a million board feet of assorted logs and lumber from illegal loggers from various parts of the province.

The intensified anti-illegal logging operations has yielded illegal loggers/transporters apprehensions and for filing of cases against them in the provincial prosecutors office.

The provincial anti-illegal logging task force is the implementing arm of LGU-Isabela manning the remaining forest resources' preservation in the province.

Gov Padaca said there is a need to protect the remaining forest resources to avoid flashfloods and erosions brought by typhoons and heavy rains.

The lady chief executive further said the provincial government is relentless in its efforts to enforce environment laws to preserve the remaining forests. (PIA Isabela) [top]
