‘Balingasag illegal quarry ops have consent from barangay executive’

By Edwin Iyo

THE illegal quarrying activities in Barangay Mandangoa, Balingasag town in Misamis Oriental allegedly have the consent to operate from a barangay official in the area, a government environment executive said.
In an interview, Mines and Geoscience Bureau-10 Regional Director Rex Monsanto confirmed the allegation after conducting an ocular inspection into the illegal quarrying operations in the eastern part of the province.
Monsanto identified the quarry operators as Ailyn G. Cogay, Kaisser P. Acao represented by Christopher Pamisa, and a certain Dioscorro Daayata.
According to Engr. Manuel Candia, who was part of the inspection team, said the operators were using heavy and other earth-moving equipment.
Monsanto said Cogay admitted that they have no permit to operate legally in the area.
However, Cogay added that Mandangoa Barangay Chair Annabelle R. Pamisa gave them consent to operate in their barangay.
Monsanto said they already sent their official communique and recommendation to the office of Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano for the issuance of a cease and desist order against the illegal quarry operators.
He added that they are preparing administrative charges against the barangay official.
