6,212 in DAR’s final Luisita list



FINAL LIST Farmers of Hacienda Luisita, a vast sugar estate in Tarlac owned by the family of President Aquino, sift through sheets of tarpaulin looking for their names on the list of people entitled to receive land under the agrarian reform program. E.I. REYMOND T. OREJAS/INQUIRER CENTRAL LUZON

TARLAC CITY—Most were happy, others were overwhelmed, and still others were confused, even angry, as the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) on Wednesday released the final list of 6,212 beneficiaries of the sprawling sugar plantation owned by the family of President Aquino, which was ordered distributed to its workers by the Supreme Court.

Printed on tarpaulin and mounted on boards, the list posted by Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes came in two sets: The first was alphabetically arranged and the second pertained to specific barangays (villages) in Hacienda Luisita.

For Irma Salvador-Masanque, 49, seeing her and her relatives’ names on the list was an overwhelming experience. Impatient to wait for her turn, she ducked under the heavy sheets of tarpaulin, ran through the names and came out smiling and excited.

“I am on the list, my brothers and sisters, and in-laws, all eight of us,” she said.

Masanque said her siblings and relatives would still plant sugarcane when they finally get their land. “I hope this happens soon,” she said.

Rodrigo Aquino, 57, who has been working in the hacienda since 1974, said he could only be happy because he and wife, Luz, were both on the list.

Aquino said he would plant rice and vegetables instead of sugarcane as this would be more profitable. He is hoping that the government will help him by distributing seedlings and fertilizers.

He said he did not want to go through the hardship of sugarcane planting again as he did when he was a “tabasero,” or cane cutter. His earnings then, he said, were too small that his two children, who are now married, never made it to college.

For members of the United Luisita Workers Union (Ulwu) who were in Barangay Mapalacsiao when De los Reyes handed out copies of the final list, the presence of Noel Mallari, whom they said broke off from their group to form a company union, brought tension as they started heckling and booing him.

The women said Mallari’s group pushed for the stock distribution option (SDO) in lieu of land distribution under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) that contributed much to the delay of the cases filed in court.

Others, however, were confused and angry. After confirming that their names were on the final list, there wasn’t a glint of joy in their faces because they feared that they would not get land from the villages where they are living.

No petition for exclusion

In earlier interviews, Assistant Agrarian Reform Secretary Teofilo Inocencio said that while the allocation of farm lots in areas where the beneficiaries live was ideal, there would be places where there was not enough land to be distributed and they would have to settle elsewhere in the hacienda.

On July 5, 2011, the Supreme Court upheld the DAR’s revocation of the SDO that was implemented in 1989. It reaffirmed this decision on Nov. 22 that year and ordered the DAR to distribute 4,915 hectares of the estate to 6,296 farm workers.

On April 24 last year, the court threw out a motion for reconsideration filed by Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI).

De los Reyes said the final number of beneficiaries was drawn after scrutinizing the qualifications and documents of those in the probationary list that was released in October last year as well as those who filed petitions for inclusion.

The DAR last year drew up two sets of names of potential beneficiaries totaling 6,586.

Aside from the preliminary master list of 5,365, another set of 1,221 names was tagged as “probationary.” De los Reyes said people on the probationary list had been asked to submit proof that they were working in the estate in November 1989, the reckoning date established by the Supreme Court when the plantation came under CARP.

The preliminary list of 5,365 beneficiaries was not changed, De los Reyes said, as no one petitioned for the exclusion of anyone on that list.

He said the additional 847 beneficiaries came from the probationary list who complied with the requirements, and some from the 357 who filed a petition for inclusion and were duly qualified.

Distribution in June

Lito Bais, Ulwu chairman, said his group would question the DAR as to how and why the number of beneficiaries rose to 6,212.

Bais said Ulwu had sought the inclusion of only 16 members and insisted that the base figure should still be the signatories to the 1989 SDO.

De los Reyes, however, said that the rest of the petitioners for inclusion were not done by the HLI. He said these people came to DAR.

The agrarian reform secretary said now that the number of beneficiaries had been finalized, the DAR’s next step was to determine how much land the beneficiaries would get.

De los Reyes said he planned to distribute the land by June. He said segregation and surveying were being done to determine how the 4,915 ha would be parceled out.

He said roads, firebreaks and other common-use portions would be removed  from the total area to be distributed, as well as the 500 ha belonging to  Rizal Commercial Banking Corp., as mandated by the Supreme Court, and the 83 ha expropriated for the Subic–Clark-Tarlac Expressway.

Bais, however, said that when the DAR classified the 4,915 ha as agricultural land, the roads and canals were already removed from that and what remained to be deducted were only 583 ha.


De los Reyes said the valuation of the property could be a contentious issue and Land Bank of the Philippines would determine this.

Should HLI disagree with the valuation and file a petition in the Supreme Court, De los Reyes said this would not stop the DAR from distributing the land.

“We are the implementor of the decision of the Supreme Court and we are directed to distribute the land and we will,” he said.

He also brushed aside accusations of the farmers’ group Alyansa ng mga Manggagawang Bukid sa Asyenda Luisita (Ambala) that the DAR was railroading the implementation of the decision of the high court. He said the DAR had been transparent in all its activities.

“While positions taken by Ambala during the consultation meetings will be duly considered in the finalization process, the DAR is duty bound to get the consensus of the parties as required by the Supreme Court decision,” De los Reyes said.

DAR list a sham

Randall Echanis, deputy secretary general of Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas, said in a statement that the DAR list was a “sham.”

“Even the basis of the DAR’s master list is patently illegal,” he said, referring to the DAR’s pronouncement that this was based on the master list submitted by HLI in 2010 to the court and HLI’s list of employees under the Social Security System (SSS).

“The master list submitted by the HLI to the Supreme Court is a product of an illegal process or the bogus referendum conducted by the Cojuangcos in August 2010,” Echanis said.

“And since when did the SSS become a basis for the identification of farmer-beneficiaries?” he asked. “SSS membership only proves the employer-employee relationship and is not a basis for the identification of beneficiaries.”

Echanis said the names of “Cojuangco loyalists” made it to the DAR’s final list. He identified them as HLI supervisor Windsor Andaya,  Mallari, Julio Suniga, Eldie Pingol, HLI engineer Rizalino Sotto and Edgardo Aguas, incumbent chairman of Barangay Central inside Hacienda Luisita.

“These are the very same people who sided with the Cojuangcos, argued for the continuance of the antipeasant stock distribution option scheme, and vigorously opposed land distribution,” he said.

He claimed that a petition for the six names to be excluded from the list was made by Ambala, but De los Reyes said his department received no petition for exclusion at all.—With a report from DJ Yap in Manila

    I can really foresee PNoy distributing land titles to the beneficiaries.

    That would be one of his greatest moments.


    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_T4UWEQIDXLS7RQXY2DDQTV6MNE carol

      am sure gma and corona are happy for the distributions. they got even with pwenoy.

      • EOJ

        I think PNoy is not materialistic like gma and corona. PNoy is serving as president in utmost honesty. No corruption to enrich himself. PNoy’s share in HLI is very small. He can live without it.

  • Hey_Dudes

    Hoy!  Bakit wala ang pangalan ko dyan sa listahan?  Tiga San Miguel din ako at matagal din ngumatmat ng tubo noon kami ay nagaaral pa sa barangay Kumunoy?  Sige ilagay ang pangalan ko dahil nakahanda na ang butu ng ampalaya at kamatis na itatanimko dyan!

  • http://www.pulisnapogi.blogspot.com/ Pulis Na Pogi

    wait for two years and the hacienda will again be back in the control of the landowners.  i have no love lost for pnoy but i think what these people will do to the land is to sell it off again to the previous owners and the cycle goes on and on…

    i have personal experience on many of these dar beneficiaries and i cannot say that they are the most responsible people worthy of stewardship of these lands.

    • joshmale2004

      This is the real problem not only in HLI but other lands under CARP. This is the reason also why we can not feel the effect of CROP. Once these tenants are awarded their own lands, majority immediately want to convert these lands to cash kaya bumabalik din sa private individuals or the previous owners. This has to be corrected. There should be an enabling law to punish tenants who mortgage or sell agricultural lands awarded to them. DAR should also increase the holding period of theses lands before they are transferred or resold.

      • Handiong

        A Certificate of Land Ownership Award, or CLOA, has a prescription provision that the beneficiary cannot transfer ownership of the land within a ten-year period. So, if anybody wants to generate cash out of it, the only way is to mortgage it. But, it is very difficult to find a lender who will give out a loan knowing that he cannot foreclose on the collateral before the prescription period is over.

        Thanks Bro for the Info.

        No problem, bro.

    KILUSANG MAGBUBUKID  sala sa init sala sa lamig basta sa kanila yung agenda ng CPP/NPA ang dapat MASUNOD TIGNAN NGA NATIN ANG HBUSAY nyo kung mapigilan ng CPP/NPA ang pag survey sa lupa ni SIMION kagaya ng ginagawa nyo sa BONDOC PENISULA  nuon? This is a big blow to BAYAN MUNA ang other cpp/npa front to sabotage land reform  sa huli ang huling halakhak kay CORONA pa din.

    kakaawa mga itsura ng farmers..sana pinakita din yung ngising aso ni kumag

    always politics and election related this hacienda 

  • wawa2172

    Well there is a list and time for election purposes which is why the beneficiaries could say sana araw-araw ay election para mapadali ang pag process ng land transfer at title. Aanhin pa ang damo king patay na ang kabayo ika nga so sana di na mag tagal pa at maipamigay na ang dapat ay sa mag sasaka. Sana huwag nang dagdagan nang not qualified beneficiaries ng DAR ang listahan. De los Reyes is acting on the land transfer dahil nabatikos na sa di pag kilos. Remember it was during the time of unpopular admin of the Pandak ang laban sa Hacienda Luisita. I know na kung di nangyari noon nasa Cojuangco-Aquino pa rin ang lupa na nararapat ay sa magsasaka. God Bless farmers, take good care of those land once nasa inyo na ito.

  • PinoyPower1

    I believe HLI will definitely be distributed under the stewardship of PNoy.

  • joshmale2004

    Now the HLI issue will be put to rest and the doubt casted on Noynoy’s sincerity also erased.

    • Pulokoy

      LOL wala ng maibabato na HACIENDA luisita THEORY ang mga taga ANTI-Pnoy dito

  • Janch

    Ang problema naman ngayon ay kung sino-sino ang mga nararapat na mga beneficiaries at yung hatian.  Sakit sa ulo na naman ng DAR yon.  Malamang tatagal pa before matatapos ang problema sa H. Luisita.

  • FILIPINOpatriot4ever

    President Aquino himself distributing land titles to the farmers is absolutely possible.

    That would be a monumental scene for the books!

  • disqusted0fu

    Pnoy’s fight for keeping this ill gotten wealth within their family is not yet over. The final list released by DAR are just names written on a paper, or in this case a tarpaulin. The actual distribution of the land, and to see the farmers settle down on their own properties is the only time to make it official. For all we know, there might be those workers of the Cojuangco/Aquino clan whose names are still included on the list.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6ODLDBBLVPVJCOODC6Y4CKJTVA lex

    FINALLY HLI would be distributed. Siguro naman TITIKOM NA BIBIG NG MGA BUMABATIKOS. Baka hahanap na naman ng ibang ISSUE para sa ANOTHER BLACK PROPAGANDA ang mga ANTI PNOY. GOD BLESS  na lang sa inyong lahat!

       wala na sya ngayong palusot.hehehe wala na nga ako balita sa kanya.hahaha

  • tadasolo

    I am happy for the Farmers but land distribution of HLI will be a total failure to produce any crop and help the farmers. This land lacks any irrigation and depends on rainfall and access by the farmers may not be possible without access roads. This is MESS may good for the recipient farmers on paper but will not make them better. As a matter fact it will make it worse for them. Considered this scenario of the tenant farmer being given one hectare each. He will allocate at least 25% to build his own house or maybe more to accommodate a large family. That will leave 75%. Assume he needs to dedicated at least another 25% for access road, storage an irrigation. That will leave the farmer 50% to till. Mind you a half an hectare is not possible to survive and make money. THAT IS THE BIG REASON our land distribution is TOTAL FAILURE because after 10 years they will sell it back and the children of tenant farmers would rather become OFWs.

    • Paliwaweng

      negativism… pag di binigay sa mga magsasaka, nagrereklamo, ngayong binibigay na, nagrereklamo pa din.
      okay, ano ang iyong solusyong maimumungkahi sa problemang sinabi mo kaibigan? 

      It seems improper to criticize; always, without suggesting a corresponding means to go out of the mess. 
      That would be more prudent.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GLLLMBSX5AMH3KQSHIIRQQYRGM milo go

        some farmers will make it and be successful but most will fail and sell the land after 10 years. The concept of land reformed to produce crops is a total failure. We should call this land distribution.

      • Paliwaweng

         …success or failure of the said land beneficiaries is another story. The big issue here before is land distribution of Hacienda Luisita, WHETHER IT WILL BE GIVEN TO FARMER-BENEFICIARIES OR NOT. Now that with finality from the Supreme Court’s decision, some are again trying to create another issue. Ano ba talaga?

        And guidelines had been created to prevent these properties to be mortgaged or sold back to the owner or to usurers, and by that token, the government had sincerely done its job; that is to ensure the farmers welfare.

        Should these beneficiaries bungle and lost those awarded land to them, that would be their sole responsibility.
        It would be nobody’s fault but themselves.

  • Albert Einstien

    Kelangan talaga martilyuhin ang govt to act..parang pako kelangan pa PUKPUKIN ng 50 years..

    yun KINITA ng HLI for 50 years ..CUMULATIVE yun DAPAT ISULI na yun..at yung mga IBENTA DAPAT IBALIK sa mga FARMERS..at yung VALUATION ng LUPA  DAPAT sundin yun PRESYO na ISINAAD ng KORTE…pag SUMUBRA DON SABIT lahat kayo sa PLUNDER….

    Dec. 2, 1985—Manila RTC orders the Cojuangcos to transfer control of Hacienda Luisita to the Ministry of Agrarian Reform, which will distribute the land to small farmers after compensating the landowners P3.988 million. The Cojuangcos elevate the case to the Court of Appeals.( after 2 months of this decision MARCOS was deposed).

  • http://www.yahoo.com JOSE RIZAL

    The beneficiaries must receive a registered mail notification, not just that tarpaulin listings.
    Hahahahahahahahaha!  Ano na ang nangyayari sa gobyerno ni abnoy, bibibitin at pinapahirapan ang mga beneficiaries.
    Langit na lang ang magbibigay ng hustisya sa mga magsasakang pinapahirapan.

    • scorpio15

      Langit??? At Kailan Mangyari yan?

  • Paliwaweng

    It could be hailed as one greatest act of statesmanship for ‘Pinoy'; when the formal land-title-transfer will be finalized. 

  • Pitbulldog

    So you think these farmers will be too happy to see their names on you list of land title beneficiaries?  You are just giving them another false hope to mollify their impatience and frustrations for the DARs obvious lack of resolve to implement the HLI ruling promptly.

    they cant change HISTORY no MATTER how much DISTORTING they would like to window dressed it….like what ninoy did to the COUNTRY by exposing the govt secret claimof sabah in 1968…from 1968 to 1986 the beginning & finalization of PHILIPPINE degredation to the ABYSS of POVERTY & CHAOS..now 2013..just look around sans the propaganda & paid surveys..just compare criminality, poverty, unemployment & prices of everything from 1986 to present..the AQUINOS promises for 27 years for progress, peace & prosperity are ALL LIES & they put us in this dire situation ….so sad…

The combined assets controlled by the Cojuangcos total about P200 billion. To recover such wealth under Article 11, section 15 of the 1987 Constitution, one must go to court, and pay a filing fee of half a percent of the amount to be recovered, or P1 billion unrefundable win or lose.

    It took a while but finally it’s here.

    It just sucks that it smells somewhat shady. From the way things look, people on the list that are  not supposed to be on the list and people not on the list that are supposed to be.

    It was already shown a few months back that the Aquino’s were trying  to put some of their own people on the list that are not supposed to be eligible and it seems that they may still be doing it now in this current list.

    The Supreme Court decided to return the land back to the poor farmer and just looks that Aquino is trying to find some way around it and prevent it from fully and completely happening as again decided by the SC.

  • arpeelazaro

    why are some people angry at anti-Pnoy sentiments? guys it’s called a Democracy. im a Pnoy supporter myself, but i dont agree with the idea of suppressing his critics. he’s the president, he knew that fully well when he decided to campaign for the office. freedom of speech, i say. let supporters and detractors have their say.


    Ni hindi man lang magpublish ang gobyerno ng official booklets ng list at ipamahagi isa-isa. Parang kawawa naman ang mga farmers dyan sa imahe ng inquirer na parang naghahanap ng kung ano.
