BROs intensify planting of mangroves

By Leilanie G. Adriano
Staff reporter

LAOAG CITY—Commissioned barangay ranger officers (BROs) have intensified the planting of mangrove propagules in Ilocos Norte covering at least nine coastal municipalities.

Early this week, around 6,000 mangrove propagules were delivered at Barangays La Paz and Gabu in this city to rehabilitate and improve its existing mangrove plantations here.

Hustler Garalde of the Environment and Natural Resources Office (ENRO) under the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte said hundreds of BROs are assigned in various mangrove plantations located within the 155-kilometer coastline of the province.

Aside from guarding the forests, the BROs also help in improving the state of mangroves here which serves as a breeding ground of fish and natural barrier to protect coastal residents should there be a storm surge or strong tidal wave.

In Ilocos Norte, at least 80 percent of its population depend on fishing as a major source of livelihood, 10 percent are engaged in farming and 10 percent are hired laborers.

In a presentation entitled “State of Mangroves” by Estrella Sacro, community development assistant 2 of ENRO, she said sporadic cyanide fishing still occurs in the province.

“Overfishing is not a problem due to some established alternative livelihood projects such as aquaculture, livestock raising and farming,” Ms. Sacro said.

According to Ms. Sacro, some of the possible reasons for the decrease in live coral cover may have been attributed to frequent typhoons the hit Ilocos Norte every year.

Of the nine coastal municipalities of the province namely:  Badoc, Currimao, Paoay, Laoag City, Bacarra, Pasuquin, Burgos, Bangui, and Pagudpud, at least five municipalities have already established mangrove plantations covering about 23 hectares.

In 2010, the provincial government in coordination with the DENR through the Upland Development Program (UDP) planted about 8,500 mangroves in 17-hectare area.

Another 3,000 mangrove propagules were planted the following year in 2011 courtesy of the National Greening Program. The project covers at least six hectares.


At present, these mangrove plantations are being managed by Peoples Organizations such as the Davila Coastal Resource Management Association (DACORMA). 

Badoc’s Torralbas lose grip on power

BADOC, Ilocos Norte—Over the past 15 years, the Torralbas of Badoc, Ilocos Norte have ruled this town; the 2016 elections saw their downfall.

Badoc Vice Mayor Thomas “Tom” Torralba, a former Badoc mayor himself, tried to reclaim his old post currently held by his wife, Arlene; but he toppled by former Badoc councilor and Liga ng mga Barangay president, now mayor-elect Maximo Cajigal.

The incumbent mayor, ran for her husband’s current post but was also beaten by Mr. Cajigal’s running mate, Alwyn Rubio.

The Torralba couple have been swapping positions as mayor and vice mayor of this town from 2001 to 2016. Mr. Torralba was mayor for three terms; while Mrs. Torralba had two terms as local chief executive. Mrs. Torralba was expected to finish her third and last term, after running unopposed in 2013, but the emergence of Messrs. Cajigal and Rubio forced the couple to swap positions, in the belief that Mr. Torralba would perform in the elections better if he ran for mayor.

The Torralbas have been a long-time ally of the Marcoses, particularly Ilocos Norte Governor Maria Imelda “Imee” R. Marcos. But in this year’s election, Ms. Marcos and the Nacionalista Party backed Messrs. Cajigal and Rubio.

Promising a “brand new day and leadership” for Badoc residents, Messrs. Cajigal and Rubio both received overwhelming support from Badoc’s electorate on May 9. 


“A new morning has come! Our lady La Virgen Milagrosa, have mercy on us. Guide our new mayor Maximo Cajigal,” chanted supporters as the local election officers proclaimed the newly-elected officials of Badoc town.

BJMP-Laoag: No special treatment for inmates

By Dominic B. dela Cruz
Staff reporter

LAOag City—J/Insp. Herminigildo Rivera clarified that they have not given special treatment to any inmate detained at the Laoag City jail.

Mr. Rivera, the Laoag City jail warden, made the clarification following the aborted transfer of two detainees to the New Bilibid Prison in Metro Manila.

One of the detainees, Atty. Jaime Agtang, was supposed to be transferred to the national jail but due to health reasons, this was aborted.

Mr. Agtang, former legal officer of the Ilocos Norte provincial government, was diagnosed with benign prostatic hypertrophy. Aside from this, he is also suffering from upper gastrointestinal bleeding and colon problems.

Benign prostatic hypertrophy is an enlarged prostate gland. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. As the prostate gets bigger, it may squeeze or partly block the urethra. This often causes problems with urinating.

With his health condition, he needs gastro and urology clearance to travel. Mr. Agtang’s attending physician, Dr. Sinamar Ann Abando said he was unfit to travel due to these conditions.

Mr. Agtang was earlier sentenced to 4-17 years of imprisonment for two counts of estafa.

Another detainee who was not transferred was Melody Felipe. Ms. Felipe was diagnosed with nodular toxic goiter, thus was also unfit to travel.

Ms. Felipe was earlier sentenced for falsification of public documents.

The aborted transfer of the detainees was criticized by several people. A text message sent to Mr. Rivera alleged that he is playing favorites with the detainees. It also added that money changed hands so the transfer would not be implemented.

Awan ti kinagpayso na dagita ta uray man pay centavo awan iti dawdawaten tayo kadagiti residente tayo ken iti 23 a tawen a naunday a panawen a pinagserbi tayo iti gobyerno ket awan pay ti anomalya a nakairamramanak aglalo iti kasta a paspasamak”, Mr. Rivera explained said.

He stressed that all detainees are treated fairly regardless of crimes they are accused of.

Saan tayo ngata met a ma-recognize kadagiti naduma-duma nga organisasyon regional man wennu national kadagiti accomplishments tayo no kasanu iti pinangipatungpal tayo kadagiti rebbengen tayo a kas warden no adda dagitoy a klase nga alegasyon”, Mr. Rivera added.

He pointed out that the commitment orders of Mr. Agtang and Ms. Felipe are ready; however, without the required medical certificates, they are not allowed to travel.

Originally, 10 detainees were set to be transferred to the national penitentiary; but due to the medical conditions of the two, only eight were allowed to travel.

Mr. Rivera said though that Mr. Agtang and Ms. Felipe will be transferred to the national prison once they are cleared by medical authorities.

Meanwhile, Mr. Rivera related that the jail population currently is 223. He said this is more than what the jail can accommodate.

With the jail already very congested, he reiterated his request to the city government for additional rooms. He divulged that reelected Mayor Chevylle V. Fariñas earlier promised to construct additional jail cells.

With the current number of jail cells, Mr. Rivera said it could only accommodate up to 100 detainees at the maximum. However, they cannot turn away people ordered detained by courts.


He also said that they are watching the health situation of detainees this summer season.

BRANCH 19
Bangui, Ilocos Norte

REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES
Represented by DEPARTMENT
OF ENERGY (DOE),
Plaintiff,
-versus-
THE UNKNOWN HEIR OF
BENITO CURAMMENG, and the
MUNICIPAL ASSESSOR OF
PASUQUIN, ILOCOS NORTE,
ET.AL.,
Defendants,
CIVIL CASE NO. 2820-19
X - - - - - - - - - - - - - - X
COMPLAINT
(With Urgent Prayer for the Issuance of a Writ of Possession)
(Summons by Publication)

          PLAINTIFF, by counsel, respectfully states:

1.       Plaintiff Republic of the Philippines, represented by the Department of Energy (DOE), is a sovereign political entity with the inherent power to expropriate private property for public use upon payment of just compensation. It may be served with court processes through its statutory counsel, the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG), at 134 Amorsolo Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City.
2.     Private defendant is the unknown surviving heir, if any, of Benito Curammeng, who was the claimant of the property that is the subject matter of this expropriation. His/her true name and address is unknown, and despite diligent inquiry, cannot be ascertained. He/she is being impleaded in accordance with Section 1, Rule 67, in relation to Section 14, Rule 3, of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure.
3.      Section 1, Rule 67 of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure provides:
Section 1. The complaint-The right of eminent domain shall be exercised by the filing of a verified complaint which shall state with certainty the right and purpose of expropriation, describe the real or personal property sought to be expropriated, and join as defendants all persons owning or claiming to own, or occupying, any part thereof or interest therein, showing, so far as practicable, the separate interest each defendant. If the title to any property sought to be expropriated appears to be in the Republic of the Philippines, although occupied by private individuals, or if the title is otherwise obscure or doubtful so that the plaintiff cannot with accuracy or certainty specify who are the real owners, averment to that effect shall be made in the complaint.
4.     Corollarily, Section 14, Rule 3, of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure states:
Section 14. Unknown identity or name of defendant-Whenever the identity or name of a defendant is unknown, he may be sued as the unknown owner heir devisee, or by such other designation as the case may require, when his identity or true name is discovered, the pleading must be amended accordingly.

5.     Public defendant Municipal Assessor of Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte, who is charged with the duty, inter alia, of maintaining a system for real property identification and accounting a system for real property identification and accounting for taxation purposes- is impleaded as a nominal party. She holds office in Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte, where she may be served with judicial processes.
6.     The 1987 constitution recognizes the State’s paramount interest in improving the quality of life for all, which may be done by promoting industrialization that utilizes full and efficient use of human and natural resources. If achieved, industrialization will significantly improve the delivery of goods and services produced by the nation. Towards this end, the policy of the State is to give all sectors of the economy, including the private sector, optimum opportunity to develop the country’s natural resources;
7.     Section 2, Article XII of the 1987 Constitution provides:
SEC. 2. All lands of the public domain, waters, minerals, coal, petroleum, and other mineral oils, all forces of potential energy, fisheries, forests or timber, wildlife, flora and fauna, and other natural resources are owned by the State. With the exception of agricultural lands, all  other natural resources shall not be alienated. The exploration, development, and utilization of natural resources shall be under the full control and supervision of the State. The State may directly undertake such activities, or it may enter into co-production, joint venture, or production sharing agreements with Filipino citizens, or corporations or associations at least sixty per centum of whose capital is owned by such citizens. […]
8.     The National Government, through the DOE, endeavors to proactively involve the private sector in pursuing energy projects to meet the energy demands of an industrialized nation. Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9136 declares is a State policy to enhance the inflow of private capital and broaden the ownership base of the power generation, transmission and distribution sectors in order to minimize the financial risk exposure of the National Government.
9.     Under R.A. No. 7638 the DOE is required to formulate policies for the planning and implementation of a comprehensive program for the efficient supply and economical use of energy consistent with the approved national economic plan with the policies on environmental protection and conservation and maintenance of ecological balance.  [ . . .]
10.  To complement the mandate of the DOE, Executive Order (E.O.) No. 462, Series of 1997, was issued to enable the private sector to participate in the exploration, development, utilization and commercialization of ocean, solar and wind energy resources for power and commercialization.
11.     The harnessing and utilization of renewable energy comprises a critical component of the government’s strategy to provide energy supply for the country. In this regard, the DOE has partnered with the Development Corporation (EDC) to exploit wind energy resources for wide-scale use.
12.  Accordingly, the DOE –in partnership with the EDC will undertake the Burgos Wind Project (BWP) under DOE Certificate of Registration No. WESC-2009-09-004.
13.   The BWP is a flagship project of the National Government that aims to promote energy security and sufficiency. With the mounting demand for electricity, the BWP will generate and provide the entire Luzon and Visayas grids with “clean electricity” through the development, construction and operation of as much as fifty (50) wind turbines. By harnessing wind in the generation of energy, the BWP will likewise displace as much as 124,901 tons of carbon dioxide, which will effectively curb greenhouse gas emissions. The BWP will have a capacity of 86 megawatts (86 MW) and will cover an area of approximately six hundred hectares (600 Ha) across four (4) municipalities in the Ilocos Norte. Once completed, it will become the biggest wind farm in the Philippines.
14.  The BWP is a public necessity and of paramount national importance as it aims to achieve self-reliance in the country’s energy requirements through the integrated and intensive  development of its indigenous energy resources and through the judicious conservation, renewal and efficient utilization of energy to keep pace with the country’s growing demand.
15.  The implementation of the BWP necessitates the immediate acquisition of properties within the City of Laoag and the Municipalities of Bacarra, Pasuquin, and Burgos Ilocos Norte.
16.  The deceased Benito Curammeng claimed and interest, based on Tax Declaration No. 08-0008-00329 over Lot No. 180248-B, with an area of 2,457 square meters (sq.m.) situated in Barangay 9, Sulongan, Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte. Private defendant, if any, succeeded such interest under the Philippine laws of succession.
17.  Plaintiff seeks to expropriate a portion of the subject property or the aggregate area of 265 sq.m. which will be affected by the installation and maintenance of transmission lines.
18.  There is no permanent improvement constructed on the subject portion per the Certification issued by the Municipal Assessor of Pasuquin.

ARGUMENT IN SUPPORT OF THE PRAYER FOR THE ISSUANCE OF THE WRIT OF POSSESSION
19.  Being a flagship project of the National Government, the issuance of a writ of possession to facilitate plaintiff’s immediate entry into the subject property to begin the construction of the BWP is of utmost urgency.
20.The prompt implementation of the BWP is significant as it will lessen the country’s dependence on oil as a primary energy source. And as the BWP will generate “clean electricity”, it will at the same time address the pressing need for the government to take a more active role in protecting and preserving the environment.
21.  In Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) v. J. King and Sons Company, Inc., the Supreme Court held that, upon compliance with the guidelines set forth in Section 4 of R>A. No. 8974, the issuance of a writ of possession is a ministerial duty:
R.A. No. 8974 provides a different scheme for the obtention of a writ of possession. The law does not require a deposit with the government bank; instead it requires the government to immediately pay the property owner. The provisional character of this payment means that it is not yet final, yet, sufficient under the law to entitle the Government to the writ of possession over the expropriated property. The provisional payment is a prerequisite and a trigger for the issuance of the writ of possession. In Gingoyon, we held that:

It is the plain intent of Rep. Act No.
8974 to supersede the system of deposit
under Rule 67 with the scheme of “imme-
diate payment” in cases involving national
government infrastructure projects.

x x x

Rep. Act. No. 8974 is plainly clear in imposing
the requirement of immediate prepayment, and no amount
of statutory deconstruction can evade such requisite. It enshrines a new approach towards eminent domain that reconciles the inherent unease attending expropriation proceedings with a position of fundamental equity. While expropriation proceedings have always demanded just compensation in exchange for private property the previous deposit requirement impeded  immediate compensation to the private owner, especially in cases wherein the determination of the final amount of compensation would prove highly disputed. Under the new modality prescribed by Rep. Act. No. 8974, the private owner sees immediate monetary recompense with the same degree of speed as the taking of his/her property. […]

          Petitioner was supposed to tender the provisional payment directly to the respondent during a hearing which it had failed to attend. Petitioner, then, deposited the provisional payment with the court. The trial court did not commit an error in accepting the deposit and in issuing the writ of possession. The deposit of the provisional amount with the court is equivalent to payment.

          Indeed, Section 4 of R.A. No. 8974 is emphatic to the effect that “upon compliance with the guidelines… the court shall immediately issue to the implementing agency an order to take possession of the property and start the implementation of the project.” Under this statutory provision, when the government, its agencies or government-owned and controlled corporations, make the required provisional payment, the tiral court has a ministerial duty to issue a writ of possession. In Capitol Steel Corporation v. PHIVIDEC Industrial Authority, we held that:

Upon compliance with the requirements a petitioner in an expropriation case… is entitled to a writ of possession as a matter of right and it becomes the ministerial duty of the trial court to forthwith issue the writ of possession. No hearing is required and the court neither exercises its discretion or judgment in determining the amount of the provisional value of the properties to be expropriated as the legislature has fixed the amount under Section 4 of R.A. No. 8974.

          It is mandatory on the trial court’s part to issue the writ of possession and on the sheriff’s part to deliver the possession of respondent’s property to petitioner pursuant to the writ.

22. The subject property’s current zonal value is pegged by the BIR Revenue District Office (RDO) No. 1, Laoag City at PHP 40.00 per sq.m.
23. In accordance with Section 9, Rule 67 of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure, plaintiff will deposit with the Honorable Court the total amount of Php. 10,600.00 which is equivalent to one hundred (100%) of the subject portion’s value based on the current relevant zonal valuation for the benefit of the person entitled thereto as may be adjudged by the Honorable Court in the same proceeding.
24.Upon compliance with the requirements particularly upon the deposit of the payment with Honorable Court, plaintiff is entitled to the issuance of a writ of possession as a matter of right.

RELIEF
          Wherefore, premises considered it is respectfully prayed that the Honorable Court shall:
i.                   ALLOW summons on private defendant to be served by publication in a newspaper of general circulation and in such places and for such time as the Honorable Court may order in accordance with Section 14 of the 1997 rules of Civil Procedure.
ii.                 Upon deposit with the Honorable Court of the payment in the amount equivalent of one hundred percent (100%) of the subject portion’s value based on the current relevant zonal valuation, ISSUE a writ of possession authorizing plaintiff to take immediate possession, control, and disposition thereof.
iii.              After due notice and hearing, ISSUE an order of expropriation declaring the plaintiff has a lawful and exclusive right to occupy, possess, use and enjoy the subject portion for the public purpose described above, upon payment of just compensation.
iv.               Upon issuance of an order of expropriation, APPOINT three (3) competent and disinterested persons as commissioners to ascertain and report to the Honorable Court the just compensation to be paid for the subject portion; and
v.                 After judgment of expropriation has been rendered, DIRECT public defendant to register the order of expropriation upon presentment and annotate a memorandum thereof on the pertinent tax declaration as a lien or encumbrance.

Such further or other forms of relief as may be deemed just and equitable under the premises are likewise prayed for.
