Lawmaker welcomes COA report on LLDA


BUHAY Partylist Rep. and Senior Deputy Minority Leader Lito Atienza welcomed the recent Commission on Audit (COA) annual audit report on the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) directing the agency to immediately dismantle illegal structures in the Laguna Lake following findings that many fish pens are owned and operated by dummy corporations. The former environment secretary had been working for the clearing of all fish pens in water bodies for being great pollutants. He said fish pens exacerbated flooding in Metro Manila, and deprived the fisherfolk of their source of livelihood. “We urge the House Committee on Good Government and Accountability to conduct an inquiry into this COA report and investigate how these companies were able to get their permits using dummy corporations and to recommend the filing of necessary charges against those responsible,” Atienza said.
