Concern Over Government's Intention to Repeal Possessory Rights Law

Law & Lawyers By Elizabeth Gonzalez for TVN Noticias - Members of the Civil Society Consultative Council for the National Pronat lands program are concerned because they say the government intends to repeal Law 23 which provides for the titling of island and coastal land. The group's spokesman, Guillermo Márquez Amado, said his concern is based in that the law was approved in April 2009, but so far the government has not issued the implementing regulations required to put the law into effect. Amado Marquez said they have heard statements from government officials, including the director of lands, Publio Cortéz, who thinks the law is desirable, and who say the law was inspired by the idea the land belongs to he who is occupying it and not by the state. One of the questions raised by the group is that in the past six years the Lands office of the MEF has allocated only 12 applications for Rights of Possession, which they have done on a selective basis, because there are more than 5,000 pending applications. The spokesman said the group was aware that during the Presidential campaign Ricardo Martinelli said he was in favor of giving land titles, but what they are observing of the part of other government representatives is a different attitude.

Miembros del Consejo Consultivo de la Sociedad Civil para el programa Nacional de tierras Pronat están preocupados porque dicen notar la intención del gobierno de derogar la ley 23 de titulación de derechos posesorios en costas e islas.

El vocero del grupo, Guillermo Márquez Amado explicó que su preocupación se basa en que la ley se aprobó en el mes de abril, pero a la fecha todavía no se ha aprobado la reglamentación, siendo esta la única forma de poder aplicar la ley.

Márquez Amado añadió que han escuchado declaraciones de funcionarios del gobierno, entre ellos el director de catastro, Publio Cortéz, en que la ley no es conveniente, dicha ley estuvo inspirada en que la tierra pertecene a quien la ocupa y no del Estado.

Uno de los cuestionamientos del grupo es que en 6 años la oficina de catastro del MEF ha asignado 12 solicitudes de derecho posesorio pero lo han hecho de manera selectiva de un total de 5 mil solicitudes.

El vocero del grupo dijo que tenía conocimiento de que el Presidente Martinelli en campaña dijo que estaba de acuerdo en que se dieran las titulaciones pero lo que se observa de parte de los funcionarios es otra actitud.
