MetadataShow full item record
A lawmaker on Wednesday sought a congressional probe of Boracay’s shutdown supposedly to make way for its rehabilitation and the reported construction of a $500-million casino-resort on the island. In filing House Resolution 1806, Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate urged the House of Representatives’ committee on natural resources and ecology to take action “to prevent any more damage to Boracay and to the people relying on the commerce of the island.”
