Cimatu, CJ Peralta join other execs in inspecting ‘dolomite beach’

Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu and several other government officials on Wednesday inspected the dolomite sand in Manila Bay amid the rainy weather.

According to Isa Avendaño-Umali’s report on GMA News TV's Balitanghali, Cimatu was joined by Environment Undersecretary Benny Antiporda and Supreme Court Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta.

Antiporda insisted that the crushed dolomite sand that was dumped along the shores of Manila Bay were not washed out despite the rainy weather.

He said the waves washed in darker sand and covered the synthetic white sand.

Antiporda added that this is natural because of the heavy rains and waves.

Meanwhile, Peralta said he cannot comment on the issues concerning the dolomite sand as it would still have to be resolved through deliberation. — Ma. Angelica Garcia/RSJ, GMA News
