Enrique Tabino, legal counsel of Bernabe Gilbor, president of Supreme ABF Construction and Supply Co., Inc., in a letter to Vilma Limates, community environment and natural resources officer of CENRO-Sipalay, wants the retrieval operations to be continued.
In a letter obtained by Negros Daily Bulletin (NDB) yesterday, Tabino said Gilbor, relative to the Memorandum of Agreement executed by the regional director, provincial government of Negros Occ.l and the Hinoba-an government, was engaged for the retrieval/recovery of fallen and and abandoned timbers in the area.
“...On the basis of his contractual responsibilities my client had to engage the services of the people in the area in the repair and the maintenance of the roads to make it passable and spent considerable amount for the establishment of safety parameters under the closed supervision of the personnel of CENRO-Sipalay,” the letter said.
