MANILA, Feb 27 (Mabuhay) — The Department of Agrarian Reform has released the final list of over 6,000 farm workers who will receive land from Hacienda Luisita.
DAR Secretary Virgilio delos Reyes said copies of the list have been posted in 10 villages within the sugar estate.
He said those who qualified as beneficiaries are farmers working in Hacienda Luisitia in 1989.
Heirs of farmers who have passed away are also included in the list.
Delos Reyes said anyone who wishes to question the list can file a petition before the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court ordered the distribution of Hacienda Luisita in April last year following the revocation of its stock distribution program.
The DAR aims to conduct the actual distribution of land before June this year. The beneficiaries are not allowed to sell their land within 10 years. (MNS)
