DENR files case against charcoal maker

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources filed a case against a charcoal maker nabbed in a joint operation of DENR’s Protected Area Superintendent’s Office and PNP Lupi, Camarines Sur in the Bicol Natural Park (BNP) Camarines Sur side.

            At the inquest proceeding, Investigating Prosecutor Emir Oliveros found sufficient probable cause to charge the respondent Isabelo Dogos of Famy, Laguna and Sooc, Lupi, Camarines Sur for violation of Section 77 of the Forestry Code of the Philippines (PD 705 as renumbered by Republic Act 7161).

A hundred thousand peso bail  was recommended by Prosecutor Oliveros for his temporary liberty. The inquest was conducted on the same date when Dogos was apprehended on July 25, 2012.

            Dogos was caught red handed by patrolling DENR and PNP personnel in possession of forty-five round timbers of Gmelina sliced in a meter size in Brgy. Sooc, Lupi. The Gmelina timbers were estimated at 3,500 board feet (bd. ft.) or 8.25 cubic meter (m3) with a market value of 105,000 pesos.

Forester Bonifacio Azur, Protected Area Superintendent of BNP Camarines Sur side reported that Dogos was preparing the Gmelina round timbers for processing as wood charcoal when they caught up with him at around 9:30 a.m. The accused failed to present any permit to cut and possess the timber.

After undergoing inquest proceeding, the respondent was locked up in the provincial jail awaiting further trial of the case.

            The Bicol Natural Park, which straddles the provinces of Camarines Sur  and Camarines Norte is considered as one of the timber poaching hotspots in the Region that the DENR is closely monitoring to avert further denudation in the area.

            Meanwhile, an endangered green sea turtle poacher was meted with four years and one day to five years and one day imprisonment by the Regional Trial Court Branch 38 in Daet, Camarines Norte.

            The court ruled that the accused, Allan Abordo was found guilty of killing a green sea turtle which is a violation of RA 9147 or the Wildlife Protection and Conservation Act. Abordo was caught by the police authorities in possession of turtle carcass and even attempted to share his spoils with them.
