DAR gives go-signal to proceed with land distribution in Arakan

manila bulletin blue logoDepartment Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary Rafael Mariano has directed the regional office in Soccsksargen (South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, General Santos) to proceed with the coverage of about 4,000-hectare area for distribution to potential agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in Arakan, North Cotabato. In a memorandum order dated March 31, Mariano particularly directed DAR-Region 12 Director Nasser Mussali and Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) Marion Abella to carry out the Department of Agrarian Reforms’s (DAR) continuing commitment to improve land tenure security in Southern Mindanao.

Shortly after he arrived from the Fourth Round of Peace Negotiations between the Philippine Government (GRP) and the National Democratic Front (NDF) in The Netherlands where he served as resource person for the government, Mariano met with farmers from Southern Mindanao to ensure them of the agency’s duty to solve the agrarian disputes in their respective landholdings.

The said area consists of 3,295 hectares of the unutilized portion of the University of Southern Mindanao (USM) reservation and 605 hectares of the unused land of the Cotabato Foundation College of Science and Technology.

Farmer-occupants of the Mailuminado Farmers Association, Inc. (MAFAI) have been engaged in a protracted struggle for land ownership ever since former President Carlos Garcia allotted some 7,200-hectare land as reservation for USM through Presidential Proclamation No. 428 in 1957.
