MANILA-- Newly-designated Environment Secretary Ret. Gen. Roy A. Cimatu on Friday warned the public to ignore persons claiming to be him or his authorized representative in order to solicit funds in exchange for approval for transactions with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Reports have reached me that persons pretending to be me, or claiming to represent me are asking for money in exchange for promises of approval of transactions in the DENR. I have not authorized and will never authorize anyone to engage in illegal and immoral activities, Cimatu said.
