1.3M worth of hot logs seized in Cagayan

Undaunted by Executive Order No. 23, timber poachers struck anew, this time, concealing the contraband with used tires.

The illegal transport of 74 pieces of Narra, Molave and Tindalo flitches with a total volume of 2,604.74 board feet, estimated to be worth 1.3M aboard a 10-wheeler Mitsubishi truck was foiled by a composite team from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Philippine National Police based at a checkpoint in San Juan, Sta. Praxedes, Cagayan on Feb. 13, 2013.

The truck allegedly came from Sta. Teresita, same province.  

Region 2 environment chief Benjamin T. Tumaliuan said the successful operation was made after an unidentified tipster threw a paper-wrapped stone to DENR personnel operating the checkpoint with a note that a truck bearing plate number BDC-840 is transporting illegally-cut logs concealed with old tires. The incident happened sometime in January, this year.

The apprehended conveyance allegedly operated by a certain Mario Siriban of Bacoor, Cavite, and the forest products were brought to the DENR Regional Office for custody pending further investigation.# corie corpuz, denr2

UP Fetes RED Tumaliuan for Outstanding Government Service

 

More than the services rendered, programs implemented and innovations initiated, it is the leadership of this man that drives Region 2 toward greater heights.

His achievements were clearly captured by the surveillance cam of the University of the Philippines Los Baños College of Forestry and Natural Resources Alumni Association. Thus, on April 27, this year, he was bestowed the Outstanding Public Service Award for Government Service during the Association’s 102nd Foundation Day and Alumni Homecoming.

What does it take him to be an outstanding public servant?

“Do not compromise your position to accommodate unreasonable requests”, he warns with voice echoing like a homily in a quiet church. This he always utters during management conferences. “Good intention must be coupled with appropriate action,” he says. Earlier in 2011, he issued a stern warning that he will immediately relieve any field official who recommends a land title within a timberland as part of his direction-setting. Undoubtedly, NEDA Director Milagros Rimando described him as a person exacting honesty.

An epitome of excellence, he is not contented even with 90 percent accomplishment. For him, 90 percent is mediocre. While executing the call of his position, he thinks for innovative ideas. He always has immediate solution to problems. He initiated, sourced funds and steered the development of efficient and green-engineered DENR offices that now provides comfort to employees and gains respect from the transacting public. The regional office building has become a model for replication in climate change adaptation as it conforms with green engineering and is equipped with rainwater harvesting system.

 Region 2 reactivates envi law enforcement group

2019 09 

The Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police (PNP) have agreed to include in their enforcement activities other environmental laws whenever requested by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

This agreement was made after DENR Cagayan Valley Chief Atty. Antonio A. Abawag solicited the assistance of these law enforcement agencies in the apprehension of illegal transport of mineral products during the Regional Anti-Illegal Logging Task Force (RAILTF) meeting held earlier at the DENR Regional Office in Tuguegarao City.

Director Abawag said the DENR will expand the deputation of ENR Officers to the members of the Task Force. They will be required to participate in the law enforcement training before their deputation.

The meeting resulted in the draft memorandum of agreement (MOA) reactivating the operationalization of the RAILTF. The MOA redefines the roles and obligations of the member agencies and the engagement of the Philippine Air Force, Philippine Navy and Philippine Coast Guard.

The MOA will provide quick response to verified reports of environmental violations within the region. It will also improve environmental law enforcement from deterrence, investigation, arrest and searches to prosecution.

The RAILTF was created in accordance with Resolution No. 2011-003 of the National Anti-Illegal Logging Task Force which defined the roles of the local government units and other law enforcement agencies.

The Task Force is mandated to take the lead in the anti-illegal logging campaign. It may call upon the support of any department, bureau and office to assist in the discharge of its functions, such as but not limited to the provision of administrative and technical assistance, logistical support and detail of personnel.

During the meeting, Atty. Abawag ordered the Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources Officers to closely coordinate with the battalion and unit commanders of the Philippine Army and the PNP in conducting anti-illegal logging operations. #CCC
