“The respondents were directed to file their counter-affidavits at the next hearing this March 18,” said Assistant State Prosecutor Gilmarie Fe Pacamara, a member of the panel of prosecutors handling the case.

The panel is conducting the preliminary investigation over the complaint filed by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

In its complaint, the NBI accused the Cuna of violating Section 42 paragraph [4] of Republic Act No. 6969, the Toxic Substances and Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes Control Act of 1990, and Section 3 (e) of RA 3019, the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

The complaint also named as his co-respondents three personnel from the DENR and four from the Bureau of Customs (BOC).

The case concerns the 103 container vans containing hazardous wastes that was imported from Canada from May 26, 2013 to January 30, 2014.

The containers were already shipped back to Canada last year upon the orders of President Rodrigo Duterte.
