DAR-Eastern Visayas resolves 1,690 agrarian cases

news reg 4 pix 1 july 26 2018A heavy burden is lifted off the shoulders of problematic agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in Eastern Visayas as the Department of Agrarian Reform Adjudication Board (DARAB) reportedly resolved 1,690 agrarian cases in the last six months.

DAR Regional Director Shiela Enciso reported, during the department’s 2018 mid-year performance review and planning session held in Tagaytay City, that of the targeted 1,354 agrarian cases, 1,690 cases were adjudicated upon by the DARAB.

The DARAB is a quasi-judicial body that determines and adjudicates all agrarian reform matters involving implementation of agrarian reform, except those falling under the exclusive original jurisdiction of the Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Dept. of Agriculture (DA).

“Resolving cases, mediation and legal representation are among the legal services we give our ARBs for free. We are stepping up our legal strategies and streamlining our legal procedures to help more farmers,” Enciso said.

The DAR’s performance review and planning session is currently being conducted from July 24-27, to resolve and address problems in implementing agrarian reform.
