DAR begins awarding of land to Lapanday farmers

untv-news-and-rescue-logoMANILA — Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary Rafael Mariano is bound for Tagum, Davao del Norte to personally award lands to farmers who are members of the Madaum Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association Inc. (MARBAI). It is in line with the order of President Rodrigo Duterte to give back the land that Lapanday Foods Corporation allegedly have taken from   the farmers by force.

To make the distribution of land peaceful, Sec. Mariano was accompanied by personnel of DOJ, Public Attorney’s Office, and Commission on Human Rights, DILG and the Philippine National Police.

In yesterday’s press conference, the secretary assured that farmers may claim their lands.

“This would give assurance that agrarian reform beneficiaries will have physical possession and control over the land awarded to them,” he said.

DAR guarantees that even if Lapanday Foods Corporation holds the issued order from the  regional trial court, this is not part of the department’s jurisdiction.

“The law clearly states that no court can stop the implementation of the Agrarian Reform Program. It is stated in Section 55 of the RA 9700… so the CA, the RTC, they cannot stop DAR.”

After the lands have been granted to 159 farmers, policemen will remain in San Isidro farm for two days to guard the area. —Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
