Atty. Ofelio A. Tactac, Jr. CESO V, as he highlights the importance of community support in fight against illegal logging activities during the Dialogue with the Diteki Famers Association, January 12, 2021, Brgy. Diteki, San Luis, Aurora.
SAN LUIS, AURORA –To address the issue on illegal logging operation as claimed by residents from Brgy. Ditek, San Luis, Aurora, a dialogue with the Diteki Farmers Association headed by Mr. Manuel Buenconsejo was initiated by the DILG Aurora along with the DENR, PNP and AFP last January 12, 2021, 10:00 in the morning.
Operations against the illegal logging in Brgy. Diteki were already intensified by virtue of an earlier meeting with the farmer’s group representative set December last year. Said meeting resulted in the confiscation of illegally cut logs and their means of transportation. Nonetheless, because of the porous environment and threats to the DENR personnel exemplified when a forest ranger manning a checkpoint was repeatedly shot, apprehending illegal loggers remains a big challenge.
