Ex-DAR chiefs help in solving Luisita case

BAGUIO CITY—A P2-billion debt and complicated talks among the extended family of the late President Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino are delaying settlement of a workers’ dispute over Hacienda Luisita, which the clan owns, a Liberal Party (LP) official said Sunday.

Former secretaries of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) are attempting to help the LP presidential candidate, Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, find a solution to the problem of one of the nation’s largest sugar plantations, said Florencio Abad Jr., the party’s campaign manager.
