Aliping rejects watershed rehab
MetadataShow full item record
A lawmaker accused of cutting trees and making excavations inside the Sto. Tomas watershed turned down demands by forestry and environment officials to repair the damages he allegedly caused in the area, a lawyer for the multi-sectoral and pro-environment group said on Thursday. Francisca Claver said Baguio Rep. Nicasio Aliping denied he cut trees and made illegal excavations inside the protected forest and refused to enter into an agreement that will require him to repair the damages, including replanting of new trees. “Aliping turned down an agreement for the supposed rehabilitation of the destruction inside Mt. Sto. Tomas,” Claver said.
