Estrao, however admitted that he can not pinpoint the names of such politicians behind the cutting of endangered species of trees.

He said there is no sufficient evidence yet against the alleged politicians, adding that reports reaching him about them came from the people commissioned to do the actual cutting of trees.

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENBO) in the area earlier also said that private persons with the money to finance the cutting of trees are also behind poaching.

Government operatives lately confiscated thousands of board feet of cut lumber from endangered species, reportedly cut from the virgin forest in the town, and were intended for building boat hulls.
