The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan has passed a resolution urging barangay officials to take actions against squatting syndicates.

The said resolution was authored by Board Member Ryan Dagsa Maminta.

“Isang resolusyon ang inihain ni Board Member Ryan Dagsa Maminta noong ika-22 regular na sesyon ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan na ipinasa ng buong kapulungan ng na naghihikayat sa mga punong bayan ng mga lokal na pamahalaan sa lalawigan ng Palawan na magtatag ng komite laban sa squatting upang masawata ang paglaganap ng squatting syndicates at professional squatters,” said the provincial government.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has issued the Memorandum Circular 2012-04 titled “Creation of Local Committees and/or Similar Bodies Against Squatting Syndicates and Professional Squatters (LCASSPS).”

Maminta noted that the population of Palawan is growing, as he underscored the need to bolster the programs against squatting.

The formation of the LCASSPS is also part of the “Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992.”

“Samantala, kamakailan ay binigyang pagkilala rin ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan si Busuanga Mayor Elizabeth Cervantes sa pamamagitan ng pagpasa ng isang resolusyon na inihain ni Board Member Juan Antonio Alvarez dahil sa mabilis niyang pag-aksyon laban sa grupo ng mga squatters na nagtangkang umukopa sa 20,000 ektaryang lupain sa Yulo King Ranch (YKR) sa nabanggit na munisipyo,” said the province.
