KIDAPAWAN CITY -- The environment officials in North Cotabato are readying charges against owner of some 2,500 cubic meters logs reportedly cut in a village declared as protected area in Makilala town.

The protected area is part of the Mt. Apo foothills and the ancestral domain of the Manuvu tribe.

Walter Ruizo, municipal environment and natural resources officer (Menro) of Makilala, North Cotabato, said logging in areas near Mount Apo is strictly prohibited under the existing environment laws.

Major Leo Diaz of the 57th Infantry Battalion said the cutting of logs was monitored at Barangay Buhay, one of the villages in Makilala town.

Diaz led the apprehension of a Fuso truck loaded with logs of Binuwang and Red Lawaan species.

"It was so easy for the Army to monitor the cutting of trees in those areas because we have troops there. Also, we have the community support," Diaz said.

He said during the time they held the truck, the owner of the logs, Beting Lahid, could not present documents to prove that the cutting of trees was authorized.

Lahid told Diaz the trees were sliced in a lot owned by Madib Palawan, chairman of Barangay Buhay, Makilala.
