Official Statement: The Truth About APECO

 

APECO sympathizes with the 120 marchers from Casiguran and their supporters from other towns and provinces. However, they cannot possibly represent 3,000 households affected by APECO’s development, as the area covered by APECO, namely Barangays Cozo, Esteves, Dibet, San Ildefonso, and Culat, only has a total of 1,336 households. Hence, this claim is impossible and without factual basis.

 

Furthermore, these marchers who claim that their land was taken forcibly from them by APECO are, in fact, informal settlers in a school reservation owned by the Aurora State College of Technology (ASCOT). This issue long predates the creation of APECO.
