PROVINCIAL Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) Felix Serviedad installed the 68 farmers of the Negros Occidental Federation of Farmers Association associated with Task Force Mapalad at Hacienda Bacan in Barangay Guintubhan, Isabela on Tuesday.
The installation was implemented despite the existence of a temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Supreme Court, said Roy Rondain, legal counsel of Rivulet.
Rondain stressed that the installation of the said farmer beneficiaries is illegal and that all actions taken by PARO and Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) officials and the farmer beneficiaries are in violation of the TRO.
He pointed out that, last December 15, 2010, the Supreme Court First Division issued a TRO against the administrator of the Land Registration Authority and the Register of Deeds in Negros Occidental, which took effect as of date of issue and continues to be in effect until further orders from the Court.
