• SC junks Kalikasan case in Marinduque mining


    THE Supreme Court dismissed the petition filed by former Boac mayor Pedrito Nepomuceno for the issuance of the Writ of Kalikasan against the construction of the Boac River Reclamation Project in Marinduque because of insufficient form and substance. In a five-page petition, Nepomuceno claimed that the reclamation project and the Marcopper Mining Corporation’s abandoned Makulapnit Dam and Maguila-guila Dam in Sta. Cruz, Marinduque have caused “perennial flooding in the Poblacion area and the Kabilang Ilog Barangays in Boac”. Named respondents in the petition are Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Ramon Paje, Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson and Marinduque Gov. Carmencita Reyes.
