“Although I welcome any Investigation on the matter, the HONTIVEROS RESOLUTION tends to PRE-EMPT and INTERFERE with the EXCLUSIVE FUNCTIONS of the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to act and process applications for reclamation and for ECC, respectively.
More so with the fact that no such applications have been filed with the PRA and the DENR respectively, to date.
Neither has there been any Contract nor AGREEMENT signed between the City and EM Cuerpo Inc.
I am hopeful that the Proper Senate Committee will simply treat the HONTIVEROS RESOLUTION as mere referral.”
