DENR-Zambales officials face raps before OMB

Olongapo City, Zambales — The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) officer in Zambales, the chief of the Olongapo City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) and a CENRO special investigator are facing charges before the Office of the Ombudsman (OMB) for their actions that allegedly resulted in a group of complainants deprived of ownership of a one-hectare beach property here.

In a case filed before the OMB for Luzon last September 30, PENRO Officer-in-Charge Laudemir Salac, CENRO Marife Castillo, and CENRO Special Investigator Emelita Lambinicio were charged by Samuel Montecastro, representing the owners of The Cliff Beach resort in Barangay Barretto, this city.

Montecastro, in his complaint to the Ombudsman, said the three environment officials caused the issuance of the Order of Award, Miscellaneous Sales Patent and Original Certificate of Title over the said beach property allegedly based on falsified statements and fraudulent documents.
