PRESIDENTIAL DECREE NO. 1911 - AUTHORIZING THE DISPOSAL OF UNCLAIMED RECOVERED AND IMPOUNDED CARNAPPED MOTOR VEHICLES AMENDING FOR THE PURPOSE REPUBLIC ACT NUMBERED SIX THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY-NINE OTHERWISE KNOWN AS "THE ANTI-CARNAPPING ACT OF 1972"
a result of the government's unrelenting campaign against carnapping,
several carnapped or stolen motor vehicles have been recovered by the
different law enforcement agencies of the government;
WHEREAS, some of these motor vehicles which are now impounded in the different impounding centers of the Philippine Constabulary/Integrated National Police have remained impound and unclaimed for a length of time due to the absence of any claimant thereof;
WHEREAS, the identification of these motor vehicles for the purpose of determining ownership thereof have become difficult, if not impossible, considering that the original numbers of the tampered engine and chassis numbers could no longer be determined and restored;
WHEREAS, the maintenance of such impounded and abandoned vehicles is causing unnecessary expenses to the government, aside from the manpower involved in maintaining these motor vehicles, which could otherwise be channeled to and utilized for other purposes;
WHEREAS, these impounded and unclaimed motor vehicles whose value run to millions of pesos, while thus remaining unclaimed, will progressively deteriorate and will ultimately become totally useless, thus constituting economic wastage which should be avoided at all cost. Hence, it is imperative that said vehicles be appropriately and economically disposed of.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, FERDINAND E. MARCOS, President of the Republic of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by the Constitution, do hereby order and decree:
Done in the City of Manila this 23rd day of March in the year of Our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Four.
