Officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources – National Capital Region (DENR-NCR) undertake an inventory of undocumented forest products seized from a warehouse in Novaliches, Quezon City by combined forces of DENR-NCR Enforcement Division and the National Bureau of Investigation’s Environmental Crime Division.  Armed with a search warrant from a Quezon City Regional Trial Court, the government enforcers raided the warehouse last week and seized some P30 million worth of forest products mostly of premium species like narra, lauan, dao and kamagong.  Charges are being readied against the warehouse owner for violating the Revised Forestry Code of the Philippines and Executive Order No. 23 which prohibits the cutting and harvesting of timber in the natural and residual forests of the country. ###
