Demolition at BIBAK set Oct 16
by Jane B. Cadalig

The structures at the Bibak lot along Harrison Road will be gone by Oct. 16.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the demolition will push through as scheduled. The demolition has been reset for numerous times after the occupants sought for extensions.

He said some informal settlers have been asking his office for another extension.

“I can’t grant them another extension. I took (up) the cudgels for them for several times and have been criticized for it,” Domogan said.

For this year alone, the demolition of the illegal structures at Bibak was set as early as January but the same was not carried out after the occupants promised to voluntarily vacate by June 30.

The June 30 deadline was not followed after the occupants asked for more time as they were negotiating with the owner of their supposed relocation area in La Trinidad, Benguet.

The occupants were given until Aug. 15 to voluntarily dismantle their structures and vacate the Bibak property, but the same deadline was extended to Oct. 15.

Domogan said the Aug. 15 demolition at Bibak was also the schedule of the demolition by the Department of Agriculture of the illegal structures at the Dairy Farm.

The demolition of the illegal structures at the Bibak lot has been postponed for several times when the occupants appealed for humanitarian considerations, resorted to legal actions, and sought the help of concerned government agencies, particularly the Presidential Commission on the Urban Poor, in their bid to remain in the area.

The city is bent on evicting the occupants at the Bibak lot, but it also wanted to assist the group by working with concerned government agencies in facilitating the process of their relocation.

He said the inter-agency committee composed of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples have set the final extension to Oct. 15 and demolition will definitely be carried out on Oct. 16.
