Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu (in short-sleeved polo shirt) pins a “Medalya ng Bayani ng Kalikasan” on Forester Joselito A. Eyala for his "remarkable dedication to public service, bravery and leadership.”  Cimatu visited the wounded DENR employee at the Philippine General Hospital on Monday, National Heroes Day,where he was awaiting surgery to remove the bullets lodged in in his palate and back.   Eyala was shot in the back after he and his team members, who were on foot patrol  on August 23, 2017 in Brgy. Bacungan in Puerto Princesa City, apprehended and confiscated the unregistered chainsaw of a certain Florante Saycon. Aside from the medal, Eyala earned a promotion to the next salary rank. Cimatu vowed to extend all possible assistance to Eyala and all DENR employees who exhibit dedication to protecting the environment. ###
