Hacienda Luisita for distribution

Another big issue that rose from the backyard of the Supreme Court is regarding the Hacienda Luisita. The ruling said that 4,915.75-hectare sugar estate must be distributed to 6,296 farmers. Now the big issue lies on the compensation of the sugar estate owners who are relatives of our president.

In this issue, I have nothing against our farmers but I believed that for the benefit that they will receive from the government just compensation must be given to land owners whether it is connected to a president or a private individual. Beneficiaries must try to comprehend that land owners also have the right to negotiate regarding “just compensation” from the government in giving out their lands to help our farmers. We must help each other in a way no one will benefit more from the other, or else that’s per se is unjust.

May this issue be resolved peacefully by the parties concerned without another shed of blood.
