The dialogue was led by DAR Undersecretary for Field Operations Office Karlo S. Bello together with Public Assistance and Media Relations Service Director Leomides R. Villareal, DAR Region 11 Director Joseph H. Orilla, Bureau of Land Tenure Improvement (BLTI) Assistant Director Engr. Joey G. Sumatra, Davao del Norte Chief of Legal Division Atty.  Joselito Pingoy, DAR-11 Assistant Regional Director for Vincheto Mandap and other DAR Officials in the region.

Bello said the dialogue was carried out response to the previous request made by KMP-SMR to follow-up the previous commitments of DAR for the cases involving the Tagum Development Corporation controlled landholdings Worldwide Agricultural Development Corporation, Worldwide Employees Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Multi-Purpose Cooperative, and the WADECOR Employees Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Inc. in Barangay Carmen, Panabo City; Lapanday Foods Corporation owned by Hijo Plantation Inc., Madaum ARBs, Inc., Gagmay Mag-uuma Madaum ARBs, Inc., Hijo ARBs Cooperative in Madaum, Tagum City; Banana Beach Farm or Tuazon Farm in Madaum and San Isidro, Tagum City and MEPI/ MARSMAN in Kasilak, Panabo City; all in the province of Davao del Norte.news reg 1 pix 2 oct. 5 2017

Included among the issues raised during the dialogue were the immediate resolution of the pending petition for issuance of an Order of Installation; the petition for intervention and investigation; the issuance of an alias writ of execution and resolution; cancellation of the contract; request for subsidy; and the petition for nullification or cancellation and reallocation, Bello added.

In agrarian reform terms, installation means the farmers should physically take over the lands which were awarded to them under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.

Bello assured the leaders and members of KMP-SMR to follow-up their cases filed at Legal Affairs Office of the DAR and other concerned offices and to track down the documents.
