Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday aired his opposition tothe joint Department of Agrarian Reform-Land Registration Authority Memorandum Circular No. 17, Series of 2011 that allows the Register of Deeds to annotate, as an adverse claim, the fact of land reform coverageon original copies of land titles.

It is illegal and unconstitutional, the governor said.

The implementation of the Comprehensive Land Reform Program should follow proper procedures, which include consultation with landowners, he said.

He noted that several cases have already been filed by landowners in Negros Occidental opposing Memorandum Circular 17 andseeking Temporary Restraining Orders versus the Register of Reeds.

Proper processes must be followed in implementing CARP to prevent

unrest, he said.

The governor said the Sangguniang Panlalalwigan is also set to comeup with a resolution urging thenational government to ensure that proper procedures are followed in the implementation of CARP,and opposingthe joint Memorandum Circular No. 17.

Meanwhile, the provincial government’s purchase of a small airplane for cloud seeding during the dry season and as aid in the battle to protect the forest, among other purposes, needs the approval of the Office of the President, the governor said.
