The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) recently issued a Cease and Desist Order (CDO) against the operators and owners of the Kianteg Development Corporation (KDC) for illegally occupying a portion of the Manobo-Pulangiyon Ancestral Domain located in the Municipality of Quezon, Province of Bukidnon.

In his Facebook post, NCIP Commissioner Allen Capuyan stated that the CDO was personally served by a team from NCIP-10 to an employee (private security) of the KDC and witnessed by representatives of other national government agencies (NGAs) present including NICA, DENR, CHR, DILG, PNP, PA, and members of the Media Sector.


Accordingly, the CDO was resolved after a petition filed by the Manobo Pulungiyon Indigenous Cultural Community/Indigeuous Peoples in view of the expiration of the FLGMA 122 and the absence of the Free Prior and Inform Consent from the recipients of the Ancestral Domain.
