Workers’ group: Tarlac solon Villanueva is Hacienda Luisita spox

Apr 28, 2017 @ 6:24

Is Tarlac 3rd District Representative Noel Villanueva an “aryendador” or lessee of distributed lands in the controversial Hacienda Luisita?

Unyon ng mga Manggagawa sa Agrikultura (UMA), in a statement, said Villanueva outed himself as an aryendador by supposedly acting as Hacienda Luisita’s spokesperson.

Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary Rafael Mariano on Wednesday (April 26) said all sold and leased agrarian lands distributed by the government in 2013 in the Hacienda had been cancelled.

The Tarlac politiko questioned the constitutionality of Mariano’s new policy and asked who would benefit from the crops that were leased.

UMA Secretary General Danilo Ramos said Villanueva should be charged by DAR for renting distributed agrarian lands.

Ramos also called on Congress to probe why a congressman, who is incidentally part of the Committee on Agrarian Reform, is involved in renting agricultural lands of recently distributed lands.
