Siezed logs in Villaviciosa, Abra

Camp Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet – The Villaviciosa anti-illegal logging municipal task force scored in its drive against environmental law violators last week following a crackdown on illegal loggers in Barangay Tuquib, Villaviciosa town in Abra.

Sr. Supt. Benjamin Lusad, Abra Provincial Director, reported Monday morning that during the anti-Illegal logging operation conducted last April 16, members of the Villaviciosa Municipal Police Station arrested four persons for transporting assorted lumbers without legal documents loaded in an Isuzu jeepney bearing plate number AYS 808.

The illegal log transporters were identified as Allen Segundo, Jerimy Gandeza, Manzel Sagubay, and Christopher Justo who are all farmers in Barangay Tuquib, Villaviciosa, Abra.
Police and members of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office confiscated 14 pieces of Narra and Doyong lumbers with a total volume of 572.4 board feet amounting to P53,000 including a chainsaw and a vehicle.

Suspects are now charged for Violation of PD 705 or the Revised Forestry Code of the Philippines.
“The creation of provincial anti-illegal logging task forces in all provinces is not only a big boost to our regional anti-illegal logging efforts, but it is also a strategic move on the part of our partner agencies to further protect the remaining forest resources of Cordillera,” said Chief Supt. Isagani Nerez, Police Regional Office-Cordillera Director.

The police have been conducting regular anti-illegal logging operations and checkpoints in the region as part of their commitment to protect the environment. The police chief added their pursuit of illegal loggers will continue beyond the celebration of Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22.

  1. Let’s extend a hat’s off for the members here who bravely did their duties and responsibilities. Whether there was no bribe or whatsoever that forced them to do what they were supposed to do in the first place, it doesn’t matter now. What is important is at least they did something that give our forest violators a second thought if they still continue to be brave in this kind of business. Kung lugi rin lang after greasing at may kaso pa kung hindi magkaayos, mabuti pa humanap na lang ng ibang pagkakakitaan na marangal.

  3. Don’t be racist Eric. We are all creation of one Creator whom they call God, Allah, Jehovah, Buddha, Bodowan, etc. but belonged to different tribes. It’s just happened that you’re belong to Ilokans tribe but all your body parts from the tip of your hair to the toe of your feet are all the same with other tribes be it Visayans, the diff. tribes in Mindanao, Mt. Provinces, Abra, etc.. In other words, not only Igorot or Tingguian Tribes are vulnerable to commit any kind of illegal or immoral acts including the diff. tribes all over the world but also your own tribe, isn’t it amigo? Please widen your horizons of understanding next time before you continue to hurt other tribes’ feeling. It’s that fair enough?

    • you are the racist allano your comment applies to you because you are not igorot. igorots are proud to be called igorots thats why majority of our igorot leaders pushed for autonomy.

      • It’s now ok Eric, don’t worry. You’re quite intelligent but sometimes you’re too careless with your tongue. I can’t blame you for we are just hiding behind fictitious names. And the more I admire you if you will just focus on political issues not tribal division or regionalism that may draw the ire of both your friends and enemies.

  4. Adda ngata passport ken visa ni Ms. Dear Eric Shawn (MIs-direction) tapnon legal nga makapagnaed ditoy Abra? Ti paga-ammok ket maysa kadagitay iloko nga ti pamilyana ket nag-migrate ditoy Abra from the “baba”. No saan na nga tantanangen ti “baddek”na, amangan no ma-“ideportar” iti uray ania nga wagas nga awan orasna.

    • whats wrong with my word igorot . isnt it we should proud to be called igorot because we cordillerans are aspiring to be called igorot, or cordillerans distinct to other ethnic group to our country, thats why we want autononomy,. nevertheless, i asked apology if the real igorot had offended with my term igorot but never retract my allegations that narra jam,windows, door, table, sala set, coffee table and others can be found at the house of igorot officers in baguio when they were assigned in abra yet they are proud to say they arrested illegal loggers but hte truth is they are farmers who dont have a job to feed their family because our local politicians dnt care about them. those who made commnt with my remarks are not really igorots .pustahan tau.
