Lapanday not involved in killings
Lapanday Foods Corporation takes exception to the claim of Renmin Cristina Abraham-Vizconde that “armed men under the employ of Lapanday (Foods) Corporation” fired upon farm workers on several occasion injuring dozens of farm workers, including children (“Struggle for land continues,” Opinion, 2/1/17).
This claim has no basis and is not true. Lapanday Foods Corporation, in fact, has been seeking police assistance to investigate the presence of armed men who were seen within areas owned and titled to Hijo Employees Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative 1.
More significantly, after investigating these alleged incidents, the Tagum City police cleared Lapanday Foods Corporation of any involvement.
