Probe into marine pollution sought
MetadataShow full item record
Senator Juan Edgardo "Sonny" Angara is urging the Senate to investigate in aid of legislation the state and condition that could threaten the country's marine ecosystem and industry in the long run. In the Senate Resolution No. 1404 which he filed, Angara said he believes that in lieu of the government's mandate to protect and promote citizens' right to health it is imperative that the upper chamber probes the number of plastic wastes and other garbage being dumped into the country's seas and marine bodies as this has serious implication on nature and environment and in the Philippine's marine industry. The senator said the Senate should also look as well into the country's compliance with several statues and international treaties and conventions regarding the protection and conservation of environment.
