MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will look into reports that European youth delegates of Genfest International were allowed to take a dip in the waters of Boracay on Wednesday. “We just learned about this through a news report from GMA 7... We will look into this and determine if there’s any breach of the protocol set by the Boracay interagency task force,” DENR undersecretary and deputy spokesman Benny Antiporda said. A report on GMA News said the Aklan police allowed the delegates to swim in Station 1 for at least 30 minutes at the request of the organizers of the festival and after a tight screening.
