Gov't braces for legal challenges to Boracay closure
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is ready to face possible legal complaints from business establishments in Boracay following the government’s decision to close the island resort for about six months. Environment Undersecretary Jonas Leones said they are preparing for the possible filing of temporary restraining orders (TROs) by commercial establishments as the government shuts down Boracay on April 26. “We are expecting it, especially those affected hotels, and it is within their right to file reprieve from courts. If they will file, we will face them,” Leones said in a briefing yesterday.
