Suspended village chief in hot water anew over ‘hot logs’
Even under suspension, a village chairman in General Tinio, Nueva Ecija allegedly continues his illegal logging operations.
This came out after Army troops seized illegally cut logs that reportedly belonged to suspended Pias chairman Roberto Fernandez.
Fernandez is currently serving a six-month suspension imposed by the municipal council of General Tinio for his involvement in illegal logging, Vice Mayor Ferdinand Bote said.
Army troops intercepted a truck carrying 60 hardwood logs in Callos village in Penaranda town. The truck driver failed to present any documents for his cargo, according to a Philippine Star report.
The truck, it turned out, was registered in the name of Fernandez, based on the records from the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
