Malacañang has ordered agencies to elaborate on their recommendation to close Boracay island on April 26 after they submitted a two-paragraph letter on the matter. Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra said the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Department of Tourism (DOT) submitted a two-paragraph letter recommending a six-month closure of the top tourist spot. “We received the recommendation, a short letter with the very short content from the DENR, the DILG as well as the DOT recommending that the closure of Boracay start on April 26 and, of course, six months thereafter,” Guevarra said in a press briefing yesterday.
