Encroachment on the Iloilo River

Encroachment on the Iloilo River

Two years ago, Senator Franklin Drilon and Jed Mabilog made a big fuss about conducting a survey of the original metes and bounds of the Iloilo river. It was supposed to determine the encroachments made by private land owners on the river, which is public property. Nothing ever came out of that survey. Now, Drilon and Mabilog are leading a government project to encroach on the river to build a new Esplanade going towards the property of Mabilog in Tap-oc Molo! It costs P33 million just for the reclamation. Another monument of corruption.
