Lagdameo: Search now for 2010 candidates

ILOILO CITY – Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), has called on Filipinos to start looking for honest leaders whom they would support in the 2010 elections as a way to fight graft and corruption.

“We are facing so many problems coming from corruption in governance and therefore I am calling on all to be united in fighting this evil so that we may able to give our country the kind of service that [it] deserves,” Lagdameo said in an interview at the sidelines of a forum on corruption and governance here on Tuesday.

In a speech at the forum, Lagdameo said the search for honest leaders for the 2010 elections should start now so that the people can choose whom to support in the elections.

“One year may not be too long to look for [honest leaders],” the prelate said.

He stressed that honesty is the most important trait that the people should look for in leaders.

“This is the message that leaders should take to heart, for those aspiring for positions. At least [be] honest [and] not [be] a liar,” Lagdameo said.

He said leaders should also provide a sense of direction and future for the people and be “enthusiastic, energetic and positive of the future.”

The country also needs leaders who are “inspiring, a cheerleader not only in the campaign period but as a matter of fact,” Lagdameo told forum participants.

Lagdameo made the call amid the ongoing Senate investigation on the alleged P728-million fertilizer fund scam that has implicated former Agriculture undersecretary Jocelyn Bolante. Bolante is suspected of diverting the fund to President Macapagal-Arroyo’s presidential campaign in 2004.

The scam and other controversial projects, including the $329-million ZTE-National Broadband Network project have cost the country trillions of pesos and has contributed to the worsening of poverty, said the forum’s main speaker Bobby Tuazon, director for policy study and political analyst of the Center for People Empowerment in Governance (Cenpeg).

Citing a 2000 World Bank report, Tuazon said around $48 billion (P2 trillion) was lost to corruption from 1977-1997.

He also cited the 2004 report of the United Nations Development Program that about 13 percent, or P100 billion of the national budget for 2001, was lost to corrupt officials.

Corruption has been a major governance issue since the administration of President Manuel Roxas in 1947 until today, Tuazon said.

FERTILIZER FUND SCAM Witness names Bacolod solon

BACOLOD CITY, Philippines—A key witness in the Senate investigation of alleged misuse of a government fertilizer fund has claimed that a legislator, an undersecretary and three barangay officials received commissions from fund allocations.

Witness Jose Barredo disclosed that he had personally delivered to an aide of Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella 1,000 liters of liquid fertilizer representing 25 percent of the P5-million fund allotted to the lawmaker.

He said he did not know where the rest of the congressman’s fertilizer fund allocation went.

But, Barredo claimed over private radio station dyEZ here on Wednesday, “it was standard operating procedure that all who received fertilizer got a 30-percent commission.”

He said P3 million was also allocated for Himamaylan City, which, he further claimed, Mayor Carmenia Bascon forwarded to three barangay chairs.

Commissions

He said the three barangay chairs and Undersecretary Antonio Gatuslao of the Office of the President for Political Coalitions received “commissions” from the fund intended for Himamaylan.

Barredo is a Senate witness in its investigation of former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante, who has been accused of diverting monies from the fertilizer fund to allies of President Macapagal-Arroyo for the 2004 elections. Bolante has denied the charge.

Gatuslao on Friday dismissed Barredo’s claim as malicious.

“I vehemently deny the malicious and reckless insinuations of Jose Barredo. I have never met, talked to, nor even heard of him until his appearance in the Senate on previous hearings on the Bolante case during the term of former senator and agriculture committee chair Ramon Magsaysay Jr., where my name was never brought up,” Gatuslao said.

“I am perplexed by his possible agenda for implicating me in this matter. I assure him, however, that he will have his chance to prove his accusations in court when I file the necessary charges against him which is a redress open to any citizen whose name has been maligned as in this case,” Gatuslao said.

‘Liar’

Puentevella for his part called Barredo a liar.

“He (Barredo) does not even know the deliveries made and this so-called witness is a criminal, a liar, a swindler and an estafa (fraud) expert,” he said.

Puentevella said he would prove his innocence in the next congressional hearing on the fertilizer fund scandal where Barredo had been summoned to appear.

“The Department of Agriculture has all the records and our district was among the first to liquidate. All the papers are in order,” Puentevella said.

Barredo claimed he personally delivered to Monet Lastima, an aide of Puentevella, 1,000 liters of foliar fertilizer, representing a portion of the 3,333 liters that should have been covered by the P5-million allocation.

Barredo claimed that Lastima requested him to have a technician from Feshan Philippines Inc., which supplied the fertilizer, train farmers in Barangay Alangilan in Bacolod on how to use the fertilizer.

US sheds 533,000 jobs

December 6, 2008

First Posted 10:17:00 12/06/2008

WASHINGTON — A stunning retrenchment cut 533,000 jobs from US payrolls in November, sending the unemployment rate to a 15-year high, according to official data Friday that suggested a deeper recession than feared.

The Labor Department’s November report on nonfarm payrolls, seen as one of the best indicators of economic momentum, highlighted severe cutbacks by employers in the face of a struggling economy and tight credit conditions.

The jobless rate, based on a separate survey of households, rose to 6.7 percent, the highest since October 1993 but slightly better than the consensus estimate of economists of 6.8 percent. That survey showed 2.7 million people have joined the jobless ranks since the recession began.

The number of job losses was the sharpest in 34 years and much higher than the 325,000 expected by private forecasters.

“Just when you thought that the US economic outlook couldn’t get any uglier, it goes ahead and does,” said Meny Grauman, economist at CIBC World Markets.

“The running tally of payroll declines that the US economy is now racking up is pushing up the odds that this downturn is even deeper than many had contemplated.”

Ian Shepherdson, chief US economist at High Frequency Economics, called the report “almost indescribably terrible.”

“In the past six months the US has lost 1.55 million jobs, almost as many as were lost in the whole 2001 recession, which included 9/11 and the two months after,” he said. “The pace of job losses is accelerating alarmingly.”

The Labor Department also made a sharp upward revision in the number of job losses in the prior two months: October saw a loss of 403,000 jobs (up from an earlier estimate of 240,00) and September job losses were revised up to 320,000 from 284,000.

“There is no sugar-coating this data,” said Patrick O’Hare at Briefing.com. “It is bad news that will weigh heavily on consumer sentiment and will serve to increase concerns about the depth and length of the current slowdown.”

The Labor Department noted that since the official onset of recession in December 2007, some 2.7 million jobs have been lost, and the unemployment rate has climbed by 1.7 percentage points.

John Ryding at RDQ Economics called the release “a shockingly weak report that suggests the fourth quarter could see a drop in real GDP (gross domestic product) of 5.0 percent or more at an annual rate.”

Ryding said the figures will likely elicit a swift response from the government and Federal Reserve, which has already cut its base lending rate to a historic low of 1.0 percent.

“These data will spur the calls for a massive stimulus plan, increase the chances of a rescue package for the domestic auto industry, and add to the case that the Fed cuts the fed funds target rate by another 50 basis points in December,” he said.

A separate report by the Federal Reserve showed US consumer credit fell 1.6 percent in October, highlighting the caution among consumers.

The White House said Friday it was “very concerned” about unemployment and vowed to pursue “aggressive” remedies.

President-elect Barack Obama called for “urgent” measures to put people back to work and to stimulate the US economy after the release.

In November, the report showed a loss of 85,000 jobs in manufacturing, bringing the total in the sector to 604,000 over the past 12 months, despite a return of 27,000 aerospace workers from strike.

The services sector, which represents more than 80 percent of US jobs, lost 370,000 jobs last month.

Employment in the retail sector fell by 91,000, and the leisure and hospitality sector shed 76,000 jobs.

The troubled financial sector shed 32,000 jobs in month, bringing the 12-month total losses to 142,000.

The National Bureau of Economic Research, a panel recognized as the official arbiter of business cycles, said this week the US entered recession in December 2007.

Although a recession is generally defined as two consecutive quarters of declining activity, the panel has its own criteria for determining a downturn, including data on employment, income and industrial output.(PDI)

US tests anti-missile shield

December 6, 2008

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon said it successfully intercepted a long-range missile target Friday in a simulated attack to test the defense system it wants to expand in Eastern Europe to counter attacks from North Korea or Iran.

“This was the largest, most complex task that we’ve ever done,” said Lieutenant General Patrick O’Reilly, director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency.

But the target missile’s countermeasures, intended to simulate decoys from enemy missiles — precisely what critics of the defense shield doubt the system could overcome — failed to deploy, he said.

“Countermeasures are very difficult to deploy,” he said, adding that “there are many threats today that don’t have countermeasures.”

The interception took place at 3:29 p.m. (2029 GMT), Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said, making the effort the eighth successful intercept out of the 13 tests conducted since 1999, with the last successful test taking place in September 2007.

Overall military chiefs approved of the effort.

“I am extremely pleased,” said O’Reilly at a press briefing.

“All the systems were working together,” he added, referring to the complex alignment of radars, sensors and timing to coordinate the high-octane missile.

Brian Green, deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategic capabilities, added that the effort was an “operationally realistic test.”

The effectiveness of the defense shield has been questioned by some scientists who claim the program would be unable to distinguish between a missile and a decoy — precisely what failed to be realized in Friday’s effort.

The test is seen as a crucial step towards a controversial anti-missile shield Washington plans to base in Eastern Europe.

The Bush administration wants to install a radar facility in the Czech Republic and 10 interceptor missiles in neighboring Poland by 2014.

The test of the project, which so far has cost the Defense Department some 100 billion dollars, comes at a critical time before president-elect Barack Obama moves into the White House on January 20.

Obama has so far not committed to the missile defense shield.

One of his senior foreign policy advisors, Denis McDonough, has indicated however that Obama would support the program if the technology proves viable.

Moscow has repeatedly voiced strong objections to the shield plan, which Washington insists is not directed against Russia but at “rogue states” such as Iran and North Korea.

In late November Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin urged Obama to drop the planned shield in Eastern Europe.

“This project is aimed against the strategic potential of Russia. And we can only give it an adequate response,” he said.

Earlier last month Moscow raised alarm in Western capitals by warning it could place missiles in the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, close to Poland, in response to the plan.

On Friday the interceptor missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, as the target — a fake warhead mimicking long-range ballistic missiles from nations like North Korea — was set off from the Alaskan island of Kodiak. (AgenceFrancePress.PDI)

Ilocos youth choir sings their way to global audience

December 6, 2008

By Cristina Arzadon

Contributor

For generations, this campus-based choral continues singing their way to national audiences after captivating the community with their world-class performances.

Originally known as the Ilocos Norte National High School Youth Choir, the Samiweng choral group started making raves in the national music scene after placing first in the prestigious National Music Competition for Young Artists in 1993. It won another first prize trophy in 2002 in the NMCYA finals youth choir category.

But beginning 1970s, the choral has earned a reputation as an accomplished chorus in the community for keeping the Ilocano culture alive through their rendition of traditional music before various audiences in the Ilocos Region.

Composed of more than 20 members, the group is carefully selected from among students who audition to be able to participate in rehearsals and performances. The Samiweng Singers is a choir of equal voices. Male students who have not reached the cambiatta period (or changing voice) are qualified to become members.

The choral has been under the direction of Robert Caluya, also the school’s coordinator for culture and the arts, beginning 1993 when he took over as choir conductor after working as an assistant to former choir mentor Sonia Morales.

It gave the school its first NMCYA trophy when it won first place in the regional competition with Morales as conductor.

Caluya recalls that the choral worked miracles when it bagged its first national NMCYA trophy in 1993 because the singers had barely enough time to rehearse their contest pieces.

“I just returned from a short stint abroad and I was told that we were competing in the national level,” he said.

Caluya went to the motions of rehearsing seven contest pieces and advised the choral to memorize them in time for the competition.

The chorale’s several winning performances have been immortalized in video clips that were later posted at the You Tube for the world audience to see.

Rhea Mae Delgado, a former choir member who is now a nurse, recalled that the choral regaled the audience with their interpretation of the the Latin piece “O Sacrum Convivium “ (a Latin prose text honoring the blessed sacrament).

“It was quite a memorable piece. Our conductor (Caluya) was (even) caught in awe because we didn’t take time to practise it. We just looked at each other and agreed to interpret the song accordingly and we made it,” Delgado said in her website posting.

Shortly after winning its national award, the choral stood beside foreign choir groups that performed before a packed audience in the International Youth Music Festival in Manila.

In 2004, the winning choral recorded a CD copy of its repertoire ranging from classical, renaissance and OPM. The album is not commercially available but has been replicated for the benefit of the school alumni who would always ask for copies during homecomings.

The Samiweng group had since been consistently invited to perform before various audiences in Davao, Bulacan, at the Intramuros and at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

At present, the school maintains three choir groups namely the INNHS youth choir (a mixed choir), the Samiweng Singers (composed of Soprano and Alto singers) and the Coro Ilocano (another mixed choir).

Caluya founded the Coro Ilocano and was first organized in 1996. The original members were alumni of the INNHS youth choir. It has been performing locally and abroad.

The Coro Ilocano auditioned and was one of only four qualifiers from the Philippines including the Kilyawan Boys Choir, Himig Singers and Las Piñas Boys Choir to the World Choir Games in Garz, Austria last July.

The choral later backed out from the international competition due to fund shortfalls. The Las Piñas choir bagged two gold medals in two categories namely the Music of the Religion and the Childrens’ Choir.

Caluya is hopeful that the present crop of Samiweng singers would continue the tradition of bringing beautiful music to the community.

“The Samiweng singers have dedicated themselves to performing beautiful and inspiring choral music and will continue to share their joy and enthusiasm for great choral classics to the community,” he said.

Caluya, who underwent workshops with renowned music professors from the University of the Philippines, has started mentoring new conductors to direct the Samiweng singers and the youth choir. He acts as conductor emeritus for the three choral groups.(IlocosTimes)

Church teams with gov’t to protect women, children

December 6, 2008

By Leilanie G. Adriano

Staff Reporters

ABUSED women and children in this province found new comfort outside their homes as the Commission on Social Action of the Diocese of Laoag, in cooperation with concerned government authorities, including the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Justice, the Philippine National Police and barangay officials here are set to work hand-in-hand to ensure the safety and welfare of women and children in Ilocos Norte.

In a one-day seminar attended by women and youth parishioners from the 28 parishes of the Laoag diocese at the St. Arnold Janssen Pastoral Hall, Batac City prosecutor Myra Shiela M. Nalupta-Barba gave a lecture on the laws affecting women and their children, while provincial social welfare officer Lilian Rin gave an overview on the status of women and children being exposed to domestic violence, sexual harassment, rape, premarital sex and drug addiction.

Though the reported cases of affected women and children in the province is low and not considered “alarming”, Rin told The Ilocos Times that a massive information and education campaign still needs to be conducted “continuously”, especially in the grassroots level to let women and children know about their rights and thus be empowered.

SAC Director Fr. Leonardo Ruiz said the church concern is more on the “spiritual” and “moral” aspect of these women and children, hence the seminar was conducted to revive a women’s desk in every parish to assist the government in dealing with cases affecting women and children.

Ruiz added that the proposed women’s desk will also work to increase parishioners’ awareness of domestic violence and the impact of migration. They will also work to identify other issues concerning women and children and how communities can address these.

The priest further stated that parish leaders should engage community members in drafting a practical action plan.

Currently, Ruiz pointed out that “There is no basis for any action” on abuse or violence if it’s not reported due to a cultural taboo or other reasons. Sometimes, people helping women and children focus on legal aid, he noted.

He also mentioned that parish desks could educate families to prevent problems and help resolve them before they are elevated to courts. (IlocosTimes)

Church spearheads ecology advocacy in the southern Philippines

December 6, 2008

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, December 5, 2008—Malaybalay Bishop Honesto Pacana said the fight of the Mamamayan Ayaw sa Aerial Spraying (Maas) against aerial spraying in banana plantations in Davao City is a moral fight for people who have “less in life and, unfortunately, less in law.”

“This is about human dignity. This is about human rights and justice for the common good. This is a moral issue because anything that degrades the dignity of people is a moral issue,” Pacana said.

Maas members and supporters have been camping out near the local Court of Appeals (CA) building here to press the justices to resolve the case that banana growers in Davao City filed against an ordinance banning aerial spraying there.

The ban against aerial spraying in Davao City was the second of such action against the use of chemicals, said to be a health risk for people living close to agricultural plantations. Bukidnon was the first to prohibit the use of aerial crop dusters in plantations there.

Maas members said the CA should already decide on the case filed by the Pilipino Banana Growers and Exporters Association (PBGEA) against the Davao anti-aerial spraying ordinance as its nonresolution continues to put the health of those living near plantations at risk.

As a sign of frustration for the slow resolution of the PBGEA case, members of Maas and their supporters from Jesuit-run Ateneo de Cagayan University (Xavier University) and from the Sumilao Farmers Association recently shaved their heads.

“We have sacrificed so much and we are willing to sacrifice more until the hearts of the justices of the Court of Appeals will be touched. We are appealing for their compassion, that they listen to us…we do not want anything but justice. We only want to claim the basic right for our health to be protected and live in a poison-free environment,” Baby Adlawan, a farmer from Sirib, Davao City, said.

She said a visit to communities near banana plantations in Davao City might be needed so that CA justices would be convinced to act fast.

“The greed of these banana companies is what makes our lives difficult and is slowly killing us. And the same greed appears to be being protected by the decisions of the Court of Appeals when the justices issued the temporary restraining order and later the writ of preliminary injuction (against the ban) and now the snail-paced resolution of the constitutionality of the ordinance,” Rosita Bacalso, a senior member of Maas, said.

On the other hand, Puerto Princesa (Palawan) Bishop Pedro D. Arigo said he has not stopped issuing pastoral statements and leading the people in rallies opposing mining operations in the area.

The Bishop said the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development plans to declare a 25-year moratorium on small-scale mining but the provincial government under Governor Joel Reyes has not passed the required ordinance.

“The governor has reacted to our pastoral letter which was very critical of the provincial government on the anomalies involved in the issuance of mining permits,” he said.

Arigo said while they continue to oppose mining operations, they have learned to “tolerate” the existence of the Tuba Nickel mining. “We said let’s not have additional mining companies as we called for strict monitoring of its mine tailings.”

The prelate said he was surprised to learn more than 300 new mining applications have been filed.

Before the year ends, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) may issue another pastoral letter on environment. (Santosh Digal)

Coastal fire, typhoon Tonyo left hundreds homeless in Puerto Princesa

November 20, 2008

By Celeste Anna R. Formoso

DOUBLE TRAGEDY hit two coastal barangays here last night leaving hundreds of families homeless and Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn and the City Council appealing for sobriety and help for the victims.

During the onslaught of typhoon Tonyo last night at around 8 p.m., families that are mostly Badjaos, evacuated from the coast of barangay Bagong Sikat due to strong winds and waves that destroyed their homes and keeled over their fishing boats.

At 9:53 p.m., an alleged faulty electrical wiring caused a large destructive fire in barangay Maunlad that drove over 140 families evacuating to barangay centers, churches and basketball courts.

The conflagration proved difficult to control as winds brought by Tonyo were blowing hard, creating thick smokes and sending flying ashes and cinders over trees and nearby houses.

As of press time, the City Council has already declared Puerto Princesa under a state of calamity, according to Hagedorn, who has been on top of the situation since last night with the City Disaster Coordinating Council (CDCC) led by Vice Mayor Lucilo R. Bayron.

“We are still waiting for correct figures to come in, but the city has already been declared under a state of calamity,” Hagedorn said.

He said Maunlad and Bagong Sikat are not the only barangays affected by the calamities. At the CDCC, a report that came in disclosed families also suffered from typhoon Tonyo.

Palawan Governor Joel T. Reyes, on the other hand, has directed the Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC) to provide all support to the victims of the fire and typhoon Tonyo in the city. According to Provincial Information Officer Rolando E. Bonoan, Jr., the governor was saddened by the twin tragedy that struck the city.

While the fire was on its onslaught, surrounding residents panicked that nearby Petron Depot will be engulfed by the fire. A source in Maunlad said that if the fire was able to creep to the depot, it would have been a conflagration in the city that could have affected residents living as far as the Old City Public Market.

“If that happened, I don’t know what will happen to all of us living near here,” the source said.

The depot was saved by a substantial firewall that separates it away from the residents living in the surrounding area.

Until now, the City Fire Department (CFD) is still determining reports that the fire was due to a faulty electrical wiring.(ThePalawanTimes)

Storm ‘Pablo’ makes landfall in Samar, over South Luzon today

October 1, 2008

By MADEL R. SABATER and ED DE LEON

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) yesterday warned residents of Southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, about the passage today of tropical storm “Pablo” after making landfall over Eastern Visayas yesterday.

PAGASA weather branch chief Nathaniel Cruz, in a phone interview, said tropical storm “Pablo” made landfall over Eastern Samar yesterday afternoon, bringing rains and gusty winds over Eastern Visayas and other nearby areas.

“Pablo” may either maintain its strength or weaken after crossing the Samar-Leyte areas, Cruz disclosed. It was packing winds of 65 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 80 kph while moving northwest at 17 kph yesterday afternoon.

Tropical cyclones weaken after hitting land but gain strength anew while over water. Public storm signal no. 2 was hoisted over Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Masbate, Ticao island, Burias island, Northern Samar, Western Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, and Biliran island as of 4 p.m. yesterday.

Signal no. 1, meanwhile, has been raised over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Marinduque, Romblon, Quezon, Polillo island, Oriental Mindoro, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal, Southern Leyte, Capiz, Aklan, Northern Iloilo, Northern Negros, Northern Cebu, Surigao del Norte, Siargao island, and Dinagat island.

Cruz said that after hitting land over Eastern Samar yesterday, “Pablo” was expected to head to the Bicol Region then to Southern Luzon, including Metro Manila, before making its way out via the South China Sea.

Cruz said that today will be critical for Metro Manila and other Southern Luzon areas in terms of rainfall, adding that the center of tropical storm “Pablo” is expected to be very near Metro Manila Wednesday night.

Meanwhile some 1,645 passengers and 74 vehicles were stranded in three ports in Sorsogon yesterday, the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) in Bicol reported.

The Philippine Coast Guard did not allow vessels to sail after typhoon signal no. 1 was hoisted over Sorsogon, grounding 43 passenger buses, 17 trucks, 14 small cars and four sea vessels in the ports of Pilar, Bulan and Matnog. (ManilaBulletin)

Activist of ’70s now chief of PNP

September 28, 2008

By Alcuin Papa
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 02:02:00 09/28/2008

THE NEW CHIEF OF THE PHILIPPINE NATIONAL Police was an activist in his freshman year at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, in 1972.

“That was shortly before martial law, when activism was at its height,” Jesus Verzosa said, recalling how, as a gangly 18-year-old, he stood out in protest rallies.

But the luster of student activism began to fade for Verzosa after martial law was declared in September of that year. “I wasn’t a real advocate of armed struggle, only of cultural change. Also, I began to see there was no future in the movement. It offered no alternative solution,” he said.

The next year, his father, a military colonel, convinced him to take the entrance exams at the Philippine Military Academy.

“Before that, I knew nothing of the PMA. All I knew was that it was involved in parades. The first time I stepped into the PMA was my first time in Baguio,” Verzosa recalled with a chuckle.

He graduated from the PMA in 1976. Yesterday, he assumed command of the 125,000-strong national police force.

Marching order

President Macapagal-Arroyo’s first marching order to Verzosa, 54, is to help in her administration’s mission to bring peace to the troubled South.

Verzosa has previously been assigned in Basilan and Maguindanao, provinces where the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the bandit group Abu Sayyaf are known to operate.

In her speech during yesterday’s turnover ceremony at Camp Crame, the President said Verzosa had the experience “valuable to what we are seeking to do today—that is, to do everything possible to bring lasting peace in Mindanao and end 40 years of fighting that has killed more than 120,000 people.”

Ms Arroyo also reiterated her administration’s goal to pursue the stalled peace process in Mindanao.

“[We are committed] to end the violence that has held the southern part of our country back,” she said.

The President also said she expected the PNP under Verzosa to play “a very strong role” in enforcing “disarmament, demobilization and rehabilitation” in certain parts of Mindanao, where government troops are hunting down MILF Commanders Ameril Ombra Kato, Abdullah Macapaar alias Bravo and Aleem Sulaiman Pangalian, who led deadly attacks against civilians in August.

“After all,” the current operations against the renegade MILF commanders are “a law enforcement exercise, not an all-out war,” she said.

Maximize deployment

At a press conference later yesterday, Verzosa said he would order more police resources and personnel to Mindanao.

He said that in order to maximize the deployment, he would advocate the formation of an interim police group that would integrate various regions in certain areas, similar to the area commands of the Armed Forces.

He promised to spend time talking with Gen. Alexander Yano, the AFP chief of staff and his classmate at the PMA, on how to solve the problem in Mindanao.

Jogging interviews

“We are going to be jogging and talking together on Mindanao. He is also a fitness buff like me,” Verzosa said.

He invited reporters to jog with him every morning, saying these sessions would be open for interviews.

In his assumption speech, Verzosa said he would make “effective leadership” a way of life in the police force.

This, he said, would make the delivery of police services more effective and PNP commanders less dependent on national headquarters.

Verzosa also promised to be a hands-on leader and to spend more time visiting policemen in the field.

“We shall develop leaders at all levels. And I shall lead these leaders … We shall hit the ground running by enhancing police services where they matter most,” he said.

High-profile cases

Verzosa’s star rose quickly when he joined the PNP, where he is known as a tenacious investigator and an intelligence expert.

He has gone up against urban terrorists, robbery gangs and kidnap-for-ransom groups.

Verzosa has held vital positions in the PNP, including commander of Region IV-A (Calabarzon, considered a hotbed of crime syndicates), the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (or CIDG, the premier investigation unit), and the Intelligence Group (or IG, the primary unit against terrorists and ranking members of insurgent groups like the New People’s Army).

As Region IV-A commander, Verzosa and his team cracked the rape case that led to the arrest and prosecution of then Mayor Antonio Sanchez of Calauan, Laguna.

Among the many sensational cases he has handled as CIDG chief is the murder of actress Nida Blanca.

As IG chief, Verzosa directed operations that led to the arrest of terrorists Fathur Rohman Al-Ghozi and Muklis.

He has also brought down crime groups like the Johnny Ong drug ring and the Villacer kidnap-for-ransom gang.

Critics already

But this early, Verzosa has had his share of criticism.

Cause-oriented groups have raised his involvement in the enforcement of martial law in its later years, and challenged him to improve the PNP’s human rights record.

To this, Verzosa said: “We already have a human rights program existing and we have plans of strengthening it. We are closely coordinating with Commission on Human Rights Chair Leila de Lima.”

He said the PNP had also banned the practice of making a public presentation of suspects “who are considered innocent until proven guilty by a court,” and had established its own Human Rights Affairs Office.

As for the escape of Al-Ghozi from a detention cell in Camp Crame in 2003, Verzosa had this to say: “I gave up my position as IG chief to give way to an impartial investigation by a fact-finding body headed by Sedfrey Ordoñez. I was exonerated.”

He said he led efforts to recapture Al-Ghozi, but “unluckily,” the man was killed.

Eye-opener

But Al-Ghozi’s escape was an eye-opener for Verzosa that led him to discover the “dysfunction” in the PNP systems: “I saw the sorry state of our jails and buildings, and procedural lapses.”

Al-Ghozi’s escape resulted in the formation of the PNP Reform Commission, which made a study on the dysfunction that Verzosa saw.

That, combined with the 2004 UN Development Program study of the police force, led to the establishment of the PNP’s Transformation Program and its implementing arm, the Program Management Office.

“The Al-Ghozi incident became a springboard for further reforms in the PNP. I guess you can say it was providential,” Verzosa said.

Managerial training

As PNP chief, Verzosa intends to make the force more efficient by training all 1,600 chiefs of police, 80 provincial commanders and 17 regional commanders to become managers.

“That will be our main agenda, to implement our program of building leadership from the chiefs of police up. That is what we lack in critical crime-prone areas and in places with an insurgency problem,” he said.

According to Verzosa, leadership at the top will result in efficiency. And a more efficient and better led police force will be capable of bringing down the crime rate and improving its anticrime campaign.

“All commanders will be accountable and responsible for the anticrime campaigns in their areas,” he said.

Verzosa is convinced that training in management will allow commanders to link up with other stakeholders in the community to help in the prevention and solution of crimes in their areas.

The focus on management is the crux of the PNP’s Transformation Program, which Verzosa spearheaded during his term as deputy chief for administration, the PNP’s second highest post.

He also headed the Program Management Office.

To the max

“This time, as PNP chief, we will implement the transformation program to the max,” Verzosa said.

He said the program would make every police chief and unit commander an effective manager, and all the members of the force “men and women of integrity and self-sacrifice.”

Verzosa also said he would push for the modernization program started by his predecessor, Avelino Razon.

Armed with a P10-billion fund from the President, the PNP aims to improve and modernize its “ shoot, move, communicate and investigate” capability, he said.

2 foreign builders tapped for huge Ecija dam project

September 27, 2008

By Liam, Anacleto

GEN. TINIO, Nueva Ecija – President Arroyo has asked two foreign builders to undertake the construction of the long-stalled P15-billion Balintingon Reservoir Multipurpose Project in this town. Rep. Rodolfo “Rody” Antonino (4th disctrict) told local media Ms Arroyo requested representatives of a South Korean corporation and a Japanese funding agency to
submit an unsolicited proposal within next week.

Antonino said the foreign investors, met with the President here last week when she attended the congressman’s birthday party in Barangay Langla.

He said that the Korean representative belongs to the KWater Corp., a firm engaged in all water projects in South Korea and which is owned by the South Korean. The Japanese entity is a funding agency similar to the Japan International Cooperating Agency, he added.

Antonino, a stalwart of Ms Arroyo’s Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino (Kampi), said the unsolicited proposal means that the government was not the one who sought the project but that it was subjected to the so-called “Swiss challenge,” meaning the proposal was not put up in the international community to know if there are parties interested to bankroll it.

The process, he said, would last up to 60 days. Antonino said the President wants the project to get off the ground. “She’s quite uneasy that there was no progress on the project,” he said of the BRMP which was first planned 32 years ago.

The BRMP was first conceived under the Irrigation Development Plan for Central Luzon, a reconnaissance study by the National Irrigation Administration and ECI Consultants Inc. in 1976.

The BRMP was programmed to irrigate 14,900 hectares of agricultural lands in the eastern section of Central Luzon, covering Bulacan and Nueva Ecija using the Sumacbao River in Gen. Tinio as water source.

It involves construction of an outdoor 69 kilovolt switchyard connecting the plant with the Luzon grid at the substation in Cabanatuan City, a 140-meter long, rockfill central core dam, a 19-meter high diversion weir, 109 kms. of main canals, 168 kms. of lateral and sub-lateral canals, 210 km of drainage facilities and service and access roads.

Once finished, it is programmed to benefit 9,152 families in Cabanatuan City, Gapan City, and the municipalities of Sta. Rosa, Gen. Tinio and Penaranda – all in Nueva Ecija and the Bulacan towns of San Ildefonso and San Miguel.

In 2004, the dam cost only P5 billion. Its cost rose to P8.3 billion in 2006 and to P15 billion at present.

A detailed feasibility study made by NIA in 1983 which was financed by the Italian government proposed the construction of the dam with a reservoir capacity of 572 million cubic meters to irrigate 18,800 hectares.

Antonino said that the project has been reprogrammed to supplement the water supply requirements of the Angat Dam. “With Balintingon, there will be adequate supply of water for Angat and there will be no problem anymore,” he said. (NorthernPhilippineTimes)

San Beda takes series opener

September 25, 2008

by Frank Calapre, Correspondent

THE San Beda Red Lions survived the late rush of the Jose Rizal Heavy Bombers to pull off a 72-68 win and inch closer to their third straight title in the NCAA basketball tournament Wednesday night at the Araneta Coliseum.

The Red Lions could extend their dynastic rule with another victory on Friday also at the Big Dome.

“We’ll go for the kill on Game 2. We don’t want this series to go beyond Friday,” said winning coach Frankie Lim.

“I believe we can do that. We just have to prepare for whatever adjustment the Heavy Bombers will make.”

The Heavy Bombers unloaded the first few bombs of the championship, scoring the game’s first 5 points.

But the Red Lions opened their account with a 12-4 exchange to grab the lead.

They’re pretty much on their way after that, leading by as many as 13 points in the first half. The Red Lions took a 39-31 lead at halftime.

But the Heavy Bombers refused to just roll over and die.

They went on a 15-7 run at the start of the third period to level the count at 46-all.

That’s when two-time Most Valuable Player Sam Ekwe went to work.

Ekwe’s jumper late in the third period capped a 9-2 counter-attack by the Red Lions for a 55-48 lead.

Marvin Hayes drained a floater to stem the bleeding and pull the Heavy Bombers to within 50-55 heading to the fourth period.

The Red Lions went up by as many as 8 points in the fourth, but the Heavy Bombers kept on coming back.

Consecutive three-pointers by John Wilson pulled the Heavy Bombers to within a basket, 67-70, 27 seconds remaining.

But Pong Escobal made two free throws to clinch the win for the Red Lions.

Escobal led the balanced attack of the Red Lions with 15 points and 5 assists.

Slotman James Sena had a game-high 19 points to pace the Heavy Bombers, who must defeat the Red Lions two in a row to end their 36-year title drought.

As expected, Sam Ekwe bagged the MVP award. He received the award during halftime.

“I’m just blessed to win the MVP,” said the 24-year-old third-year slotman from Nigeria, who also won the most prestigious individual citation in 2006. He could have won the award last year but was ruled ineligible after incurring a one-game suspension for kicking a player from the opposing team.

Ekwe was joined in the Mythical Five by San Sebastian’s Jason Ballesteros, JRU’s Marvin Hayes, Mapua’s Neil Pascual and Letran’s RJ Jazul. Ballesteros was also named the Defensive Player of the Year.

Mapua’s Allan Mangahas won the Rookie of the Year award, while Raffy Ynion of Perpetual Help bagged the Most Improved Player plum. (ManilaTimes)

Dureza: gov’t maintains its no ransom policy

September 22, 2008

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/20 September) – Press Secretary Jesus Dureza today said efforts must be exerted to “bring home safely our NGO workers” who were abducted in Tipo-Tipo, Basilan last Monday but stressed that government “maintains its no ransom policy.”

st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) }

Dureza said the kidnap victims “have risked their lives in the service of the suffering people of the area. It is so tragic that terrorist elements target as victims the very people who are out there to serve their own communities.”

“The two ladies who are still in the custody of those brigands do not deserve this fate. The communities whom they have served and who value their work and sacrifices must move as one with our authorities to help resolve this unfortunate incident,” he said.

Esperancita Hupida, projecgt coordinator of the Nagdilaab Foundation, Inc., and former Tabang Mindanao executive director Milet Mendoza were with Ludivina Dekit of the Christian Children’s Fund, CCF and two other workers were on their way home to Isabela City also in Basilan, when their two vehicles were flagged down by the kidnappers in the vicinity of Kabangalan barangay last Monday.

Only Hupid and Mendoza have remained in captivity.

In a press statement, the Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC) said they know Hupida and Mendoza “as well-trained development workers working for rehabilitation and displaced women, children, and families in Basilan, most particularly in municipalities where there are limited humanitarian interventions. Their commitment to bring back the internally displaced persons and families back to their normal lives enabled them to implement development programs of Nagdilaab Foundation, an NGO that espouses peace in a very unstable environment like Basilan.”

MPC also experienced this predicament when its convening chair, Professor Octavio Dinampo was kidnapped in Sulu last June 8 along with TV host Ces Drilon and her crew.

“We felt the angst and pain of the abduction and the travails of uncertainty. The recent abduction along with the previous ones, indicates the seeming threat of direct attacks against humanitarian workers and peace advocates,” the MPC said in a statement signed by its secretary-general, Mindanao Peoples’ Caucus.

“We appeal to their captors, whom the police described as very young, to unconditionally release both Hupida and Mendoza. Their abduction comes in a time when we all need to join efforts in bringing back peace to Mindanao”

The group appealed to “both the military and the police to pursue the kidnappers with diligent and normative actions so that there will be no escalation of hostilities in Basilan.”

“The people in the province (have) suffered enough, they deserve to rebuild their lives after the punitive military actions against the terrorist Abu Sayyaf last year,” the statement read.

The group also appealed to Mindaano’s bishops and ulama – to “spearhead the negotiations for the unconditional release of Hupida and Mendoza as we pray for their safety and well-being.”

Earlier, the Philippine Council for Islam and Democracy (PCID) condemned the abduction, as it commended the “dedication and bravery” of Hupida and Mendoza and other development workers in Mindanao “in pursuing their vision of peace and development amidst dangers and hardships.”

In a statement, the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (ADZU) Community appealed for the immediate and unconditional release” of Hupida and Mendoza.

“Ms. Hupida and Ms Mendoza have been serving the Muslim communities for many years now in the spirit of interreligious solidarity and humanitarian assistance especially for poor communities in Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi,” the statement from 17 ADZU Community groups, including the ADZU Muslim Students’ Association, read.

My Take:

After violating it on Ces Drilon et al’s case?  Wow!  Whatta face!

Floods sweep Cotabato anew, drown child

September 22, 2008

COTABATO CITY — Two weeks of torrential rains in upstream areas here caused major waterways to inundate lower areas in the eastern portion of the city, forcing thousands of families to seek shelter in higher grounds and drowning a child.

City government information officer Abdullah Cusain yesterday said almost 1,500 households are now in public schools that are converted again into evacuation centers when the Rio Grande de Mindanao, Matampay River and the Tamontaka River overflowed.

Cusain said some sought refuge in barangay halls, chapels and day-care centers as in the case of barangays Rosary Heights 6 and 7, while others from Poblacion 2 and 3 set up make-shift tents along cemented barangay roads.

Water level began rising last Sept. 12 when the floodwaters that hit several towns of North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and Maguindanao started draining down the river outlets in this city, he said.

Residents in the six barangays of Tamontaka, Rosary Heights 3, 6, 7 and 8, and Poblacions Mother, 2, 3, 7, 8 and 9 suffered flooding again in two months. They suffered from severe flooding last July when a seven-hectare water hyacinth clogged the piers of Delta Bridge here.(MB)

‘Nina’ intensifies as it inches closer to eastern Luzon

September 21, 2008

MANILA, Philippines — (UPDATE 3) Tropical storm “Nina” (international codename: Hagupit) intensified as it moved toward the eastern coast of central Philippines Saturday evening, the state weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) placed nine provinces under public storm signal number 1 as Nina’s center was located about 490 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes at 10 p.m.

About 200 people were reported stranded in the ports of Virac and Tabaco City in Albay as of noon Saturday after the Philippine Coast Guard halted sea voyage there.

In its 11 p.m. bulletin, PAGASA said Nina was moving west-northwest at about 15 kilometers per hour, with maximum sustained winds of about 105 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 135 kilometers per hour.

Nina was expected to be 195 kilometers northeast of Virac by Sunday evening and 80 kilometers northeast of Casiguran, Aurora by Monday evening. It was forecast to be 90 kilometers north-northwest of Laoag City by Tuesday evening.

Public storm signal number 1 has been hoisted over the provinces of Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, Legaspi, Sorsogon, Northern Samar, Western Samar and Eastern Samar.

The storm was expected to enhance the southwest monsoon and bring rains over Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

The state weather bureau advised residents in low lying areas and near mountain slopes “to take all the necessary precautions against possible flashfloods and landslides.” Katherine Evangelista, INQUIRER.net with a report from Ephraim Aguilar, Inquirer Southern Luzon

Mantigue Island Residents Charged with Illegal Occupancy

September 19, 2008

Directress, Fatima College of Camiguin

Vol. VIII, No. 31, September 7-13, 2008

Dear  friends,

I am a Bulatlat subscriber who was once assigned in Tacloban City, Leyte and was featured with my picture hugging a widow and her children after her husband was among the farmers massacred by the military in Palo, Leyte in November 2005.

Since last year, I was assigned here in Camiguin Island, as school head of one of our mercy schools, Fatima College of Camiguin.

Camiguin Island  has two islets, one is the White Sand islet which is uninhabited, but the other islet Mantigue is inhabited.  News reached my office that some residents of Mantigue island were imprisoned, and the others have pending warrants of arrest. So today, Sunday August 31, I went to one of our convents in the municipality of Mahinog, where that island belongs as there are also RSM sisters administering a secondary  parochial school.

I gathered information about 42 victim-families who were charged with illegal occupancy of Mantigue island.

A family (Pedro Portrias/Felipa/Danilo/Maria Luz) was served a warrant of arrest Aug. 8, 2008 by the Mahinog trial court for the abovementioned case, but they posted bail for their temporary release. They even included another son of Pedro named Gaspar who had been dead for a year, in the warrant.

The 4.4 hectare Mantigue island is part of  the municipality of Mahinog. It was occupied by migrants from Bohol in the early 1950’s. The oldest resident is Luisa Pladias who is 89 years old. Their means of living is through fishing, growing seaweeds (guso) which they sell in Mambajao and Mahinog. A family has a generator to supply electricity from 6 to 9pm to some families.

At the beginning there were few families but they grew through the years. Of late there are forty-two (42) households  with about 300 population. A kagawad (village councilor) resides in the island. Julito  Portrias is the current kagawad, and his father Teofilo Portrias was also a former Kagawad.  A complete elementary school from Grade 1-6 is found in the island, but the teachers come from Mahinog who come to the island early Monday and leaves  Friday afternoon.  There exists a Catholic chapel named after their patron saint Our Mother of Perpetual Help, as it is part of the St. Michael Parish in Mahinog.

In 1987 then DENR Secretary Fulgencio Facturan Jr. declared the island as alienable and disposable land and therefore it is fit for titling and ownership. On March 16, 1998 DENR Secretary Victor Ramos issued Administrative Order 98-13 reverting the Mantigue Island’s category to forest land.  The local government unit of  Mahinog and the provincial government of Camiguin are hell-bent to make  Mantigue island a tourist destination, as it is part of the master  tourism plan of the province to be a top eco-tourism destination. Hence they considered the residents of the island as illegal occupants, offered them a relocation  site in Brgy. San Roque, with each family to be given a sack of rice, plus 5,000 pesos and a 10-day carpenter assistance. Families who will opt to transfer outside the relocation site will be given 10,000 pesos. They promised to give each family livelihood assistance, as the local government  allocated  400,000 pesos for the resettlement of the families.

However, in an interview I conducted, it was revealed that only a half sack of rice was given to the  eight families who volunteered  to leave the island and went to the relocation site, and were given only 5 days carpenter assistance. Hence the families felt they were duped, and are now going back and forth to the island or staying with their relatives to look for livelihood  to support their families. Due to the fear of being issued warrants of arrest, seven more families volunteered to leave the island, but are still there waiting  for their relocation and assistance.

Another data I gathered from police  records and hospital records show an increasing number of rape cases in the island, as well as the proliferation of drugs.

What is inspiring is the unified stand of the remaining 24 families with warrants of arrest who expressed their resistance to leave the island. They will NOT leave because the island is their source of livelihood, they were born there, established relationships with people and with nature. They also found out that in the relocation site there are no livelihood opportunities, and they have been used to fishing. Their call is: STOP the eviction of the families in Mantigue Island!  Provide livelihood opportunities. Posted by Bulatlat

Raps filed vs 15 cops; 946 kgs of MJ seized

September 15, 2008

by Jimmy Laking, Harley Palangchao & Liza Agoot

An estimated P23 million worth of marijuana were seized by policemen yesterday morning in Tublay, Benguet.

This, as  Benguet police have just concluded their investigation on the reported missing marijuana bricks in Kapangan municipality following the recovery of the missing drugs and charging of 15 policemen previously assigned there.

Alert Tublay policemen yesterday morning intercepted 946 kilos of marijuana bricks loaded on an Elf truck near the Acop checkpoint along the Halsema Highway. The driver, one Eugene Lingaling of Sagpat, Kibungan, Benguet is now in police custody.

The policemen, led by SPO2 Morales Primo and SPO1 Jonathan Y. Pulig, acted on a tip provided by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency C/Insp. Edgar Apalla. The driver did not say who loaded the marijuana bricks on his truck.  

S/Insp. Edward Esperanza, Tublay chief of police (COP), said the marijuana bricks were covered with sayote fruits and a synthetic canvas.

Sec. Vicente Sotto, chairman of the dangerous drugs board, inspected the contraband and commended the Tublay policemen for intercepting the marijuana bricks.

The hot contraband comprised of 468 dried bricks placed inside a total of 39 sacks, aside from 10 bundles of dried leaves that are believed to be destined for either the capital town of La Trinidad or Baguio City. The contraband was estimated to be worth P23,666,000.

Mayor Ruben Paoad said Tublay is a strategic place in intercepting illegal contrabands like marijuana but rued the fact that his police force had only one jeep to patrol the town and its periphery. 

Meanwhile, Benguet police director S/Supt. Danilo Pelisco reported that
24 kilos   of the still unaccounted for 60 kilos of marijuana reported in Kapangan were recovered and will be used as evidence in charges against the municipal police force.

Charged were COP S/Insp. Bernard Capela, SPO1 Melvin Cante, PO3 Wilfred Kamfoli, and PO1 Julius Luis. These four were known to be among those who conducted the checkpoint and intercepted Robert Balluda and his group who attempted to transport 100 kilos of marijuana.

The other 11: SPO1 Melis Pi-ay, SPO2 Santos Valentin,SPO1 Jonathan Meris, SPO1 Jesse Asiong, SPO1 Leonardo Buya, PO3 Grant Balagsa, PO3 Depayso Mondero, PO3 Jueves Saltin, PO2 Wilson Amoy, PO2 Mark Guzman, and PO1 Lacton Legaspi were charged with less grave administrative offenses.

A separate criminal case for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 was filed on Sept. 3 against Capela and the group of Balluda in the prosecutor’s office in Benguet.

Balluda was the person allegedly arrested by members of the Kapangan police on Feb. 13 who was set free in exchange for a sum of money, the 100 kilos of marijuana bricks confiscated from him, and the Tamaraw FX vehicle used to transport the contraband.

To recall, the Cordillera police reported two months ago that the Kapangan police seized two bags with 20 kilos of marijuana bricks each left unattended in Kapangan, Benguet last June 13.

But such report was questioned by former Kapangan mayor now Benguet board member Rogelio Leon, who informed the Benguet police that an informant told him that the actual seizure was 100 kilos of marijuana bricks.

With this, the Benguet police conducted an investigation in Kapangan and investigators learned that the date of seizure was Feb. 13 and not June 13.

Pelisco said Thursday that a follow-up investigation led to the recovery of 18 kilos of marijuana bricks in Sitio Lomon, Paykek, Kapangan last Aug. 26. The recovered marijuana bricks have an estimated street market value of P375,000.

The following day, police conducted a follow-up operation at the adjacent area that led to the discovery of more or less six kilos of marijuana bricks with an estimated value of P150,000.  

Pelisco said that the recovery was carried out after one Kapangan policeman was ordered to burn the contraband but instead buried it near the police station. Information revealed that some of the bricks were also found hidden at the ceiling of the police station itself.  

The whereabouts of the marijuana were mentioned in a sworn testimony of 10 Kapangan police personnel prompting joint operatives from the regional office, provincial office, and the PDEA to conduct a follow-up operation to retrieve the items. “They voluntary gave their statement attesting to the truth of the information after the chief of police (PSI Capela) was relieved from Kapangan,” Pelisco said.

He added that based on the statement of the police officers, “the chief of police ordered the release of the suspects.”

The recovered contraband is now in the custody of the PNP Crime Laboratory.  

C/Supt. Eugene Martin, Cordillera police director, lauded the efforts of the Benguet police in conducting an honest investigation even as he supported the filing of charges against the concerned policemen. (BaguioMidlandCourier)

RDC pushes conversion of PNR tracks to highway

August 21, 2008

LEGAZPI CITY – The Regional Development Council (RDC) has endorsed the conversion of the 7-km railroad track of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) from Daraga, Albay to Legazpi City into a highway.

Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal said he had met earlier with Daraga Mayor Cicero Triunfante who agreed with him that in order to decongest the heavy traffic along Rizal Street, the unused railroad track should be converted into a highway.

It will be recalled that the PNR had stopped plying its route to Legazpi City after the PNR bidge in Travesia, Guinobatan town had been destroyed by typhoon Reming.

Rosal said the two local government units have agreed to buy the PNR property and convert it into a highway.

Rosal warned some occupants along the railroad track that their houses might be affected because the width of the proposed highway will be 30 meters.

As planned, the Daraga train station would be relocated to Barangay Kimantong. The PNR Legazpi City terminal in Barangay 33 will be up for sale to private developers for commercial use.

“The purpose of our plan is to decongest traffic in Rizal Street and to provide an alternative route for motorists, “ Rosal said.(BicolMail)

Strong quake rocks Bicol

A strong earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale rocked parts of Bicol last night, but no casualties were reported, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.

No tsunami warning was also issued, seismologists said.

Phivolcs director Renato Solidum said the tremor occurred at 6:25 p.m. with its epicenter located 42 kilometers northeast of Sorsogon.

Phivolcs said the tectonic quake is expected to generate aftershocks and slight damage to old structures.

The quake was felt at Intensity 6 in Legaspi City, Albay and Virac, Catanduanes; Intensity 5 in Sorsogon City and Irosin, Sorsogon; Intensity 4 in Lignon Hill, Legaspi, Albay; Intensity 3 in Naga City, Camarines Sur; Bukan, Sorsogon; Roxas City; Masbate City; Catarman, Samar; and Intensity 2 in Palo, Leyte; Borongan, Eastern Samar; and Silay, Negros Occidental.

The Philippines sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where colliding plates in the earth’s crust cause frequent earthquakes and volcanic activities.

Solidum said about 20 quakes hit the country everyday, but only a few are felt. – Helen Flores(PhilippineStar)

Ceremony opens Beijing Olympics

August 8, 2008

By Joe Havely in Beijing


China is hoping the Olympics will showcase three decades of progress [GALLO/GETTY]

After seven years of preparation, billions of dollars of investment, and a mammoth effort to clean up Beijing’s polluted skies, Chinese Olympics officials say they are staging one of the greatest Olympics ever.

The 29th summer games began at 8:08pm Beijing time on Friday – an auspicious time and date in Chinese culture which regards the number eight as lucky.

Details of the opening ceremony had been kept a closely guarded secret, but producers had promised a show that will “amaze the world”.

IN DEPTH

Coverage from the 29th summer Olympics

“We have prepared for the Beijing Olympics for seven years and now we are ready … we are very confident indeed that we will stage a successful Olympics,” Sun Weide, spokesman for the organising committee, told reporters.

“Of course we hope that these will be a great games, even the greatest.”

The day also saw thousands of Chinese couples getting married on one of the most auspicious dates in several years – 08/08/08.

“This day is very meaningful for us because finally the Olympics are here,” groom Peng Zhonghua, 23, told Al Jazeera as he signed his wedding vows with his smiling bride at a central Beijing marriage bureau.

The couple said that like many Chinese they planned to spend the evening at home with their families watching the opening ceremony.

Authorities have urged Beijingers without one of the 91,000 tickets to the opening ceremony to watch it at home, rather than try to travel to the Olympic green in the north of the city.

In an effort to avoid congestion, officials announced earlier this week that Friday would be a public holiday.

Repression

More than 100 world leaders and senior government representatives, including George Bush, the US president, will be in the Bird’s Nest National Stadium on Friday evening to watch opening ceremony.

Security is very tight in Beijing and other Olympic co-host cities [GALLO/GETTY]

Others attending include Russia’s Vladimir Putin and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who dismissed calls from  human rights groups to boycott the Beijing games.

On Thursday Bush, the first US president to attend an Olympics on foreign soil, delivered a blunt rebuke to China over its repression of dissidents and urged Beijing to grant its citizens greater freedom.

Bush has promised to raise the issue of human rights in meetings with China’s leaders, but he is likely to tread a delicate diplomatic line, aware that China’s leaders see the Olympics as their big moment.

More than 40 athletes due to compete in Beijing have signed a letter to Hu Jintao, the Chinese president, expressing their concern over the country’s human rights record and small groups of protesters have also been making their presence felt in Beijing in the run up to the games.

Reforms

For China’s government the hosting of the Olympics marks the opportunity to put the achievements of three decades of economic reforms in the global spotlight.It has spent $43bn preparing for the Olympics and deployed a massive security operation to ensure the games present a flawless impression to the world.

Also in the crowd for Friday’s ceremony will be dozens of CEOs from global business giants such as General Motors, Microsoft, McDonald’s and Volkswagen – a reflection of the huge economic weight China carries in the world.

Despite the massive investment, worries over pollution remains one of the biggest question marks hanging over the games.

China has been plagued by criticisms over its human rights record [AFP]

On Friday a thick haze continued to lie over the Chinese capital, although it was unclear whether the low visibility was a result of pollution or from seasonal humidity and still climatic conditions.

Another worry for games organisers came in the form of a new video, apparently released by an armed group based in western China, threatening an attack on the Olympic games.

The video, attributed to a group known as Turkistan Islamic party, shows graphics of an explosion over a venue and a burning Olympics logo.

More than 100,000 security personnel are guarding Beijing and other Olympic co-host cities, anti-aircraft missiles have been put up near the National Stadium while military and police are on alert in other parts of the country.

In central Beijing the historic Tiananmen Square was closed off for much of the day as world leaders gathered for a Chinese government reception in the neighbouring Great Hall of the People.

The square was largely empty except for hundreds of paramilitary police, while dozens of plain-cothed security officers mingled with the crowds on nearby streets.

Authorities are expected to put on a spectacular fireworks display later on Friday, immediately after the Bird’s Nest opening ceremony.

The stifling security measures introduced for the games have led a few critics to dub the event the Beijing Olympics the “no-fun games”.

But Chinese officials say their top priority is to provide a safe and secure Olympics – and with the eyes of the world on Beijing, they are eager to put on a picture-perfect show.

Speaker’s brother justifies P100-M fee

August 2, 2008

A brother of House Speaker Prospero Nograles confirmed that an arranger’s fee of P100 million was taken from a P5-billion loan deal between Quedancor and the Land Bank of the Philippines for Quedancor’s “GMA Cares Swine Program.” The program was launched in 2003.

Jose Nograles, former head of LandBank’s trust department, on Friday insisted that the arranger’s fee was a normal banking practice. He denied that the P100 million went to him.

The House Speaker said his brother is “clean” and called the accusations against Jose as “unfair.”

He added that he was confident that Jose could answer the charges by himself.

“I am not his keeper,” the Speaker said. He added, though, that he is willing to push for an investigation of the allegations against Jose. Because he is not a member of any committee in the House of Representatives, the Speaker pointed out, he cannot possibly railroad the investigation.

He hinted that Sen. Jamby Madrigal was seeking publicity for herself when she linked Jose to an apparent scam arising from the arranger’s fee.

“I hope Jamby was not shooting her mouth off just to get public attention,” the House Speaker said. He asked the senator to show proof that would back up her allegations.

The House Speaker also asked LandBank officials to shed light on the swine program. He said the alleged scam could be traced through the bank’s documents.

Jose, during a radio interview over dwIZ public-affairs program Karambola, said it was normal for banks to get 2 percent in any investment transaction. The P100-million arranger’s fee is equivalent to 2 percent of the P5-billion loan. LandBank provided P3 billion of the project fund and Equitable-PCIBank, P2 billion. The fee was immediately deducted from the loan proceeds.

His name was mentioned at the inquiry into the controversial swine project by the Senate blue-ribbon committee headed by Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano. Cayetano had questioned why an arranger’s fee had to be paid in a transaction between two government financial institutions.

Jose said the P100 million was divided among LandBank, Equitable-PCI Bank and ONL Consulting “based on their participation in the deal.” He identified ONL Consulting as the one that completed the financial structure of the project. He said it is composed of former officials of Citibank and denied being part of it.

The House Speaker’s brother stressed during the radio program that he is not a lawyer and he did not get any attorney’s fee as claimed by Madrigal. The senator had claimed at the Senate hearing that the P100-million arranger’s fee ballooned to P114 million because of the P14 million in attorney’s fee given to Nograles.

Quedancor President Nelson Buenaflor said Nograles did not act as lawyer for the loan transaction and that only P600,000 was paid for legal fees, not P14 million. Madrigal countered that the P600,000 was just for notarial fee.

Jose, now the president of Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp., said LandBank approved Que-dancor’s loan because Quedancor had the capacity to pay.

Cayetano, however, cited a report by the Commission on Audit that two suppliers of the swine program had limited capital and that they were not even accredited as suppliers by the Bureau of Animal Industry.

Quedancor had given a sovereign guarantee for the loan, so it will have to pay the entire amount should it fail to receive repayments from project beneficiaries. Cayetano had asked Quedancor to submit to his committee a list of the beneficiaries. He had received reports of fictitious beneficiaries and of “ghost” deliveries to real persons.

Quedancor had initially refused to submit the list. It relied on an opinion by Malacañang that the list is covered by the Bank Secrecy Law. Cayetano, however, said, Quedancor is not a bank so it cannot refuse to submit the list of project beneficiaries. He added that his panel is prepared to cite Quedancor officials in contempt if they would not give the list to his panel.

Dating miyembro ng Gabinete, may ‘7 sumpa’ sa 7 taon ni GMA

July 31, 2008

Soliman A. Santos

PITONG sumpa ang iniwan ni Pangulong Arroyo sa sambayanang Pilipino sa pitong taon ng panunungkulan nito, ayon sa mga dating miyembro ng Gabinete.

Sa pahayag na inilabas ng Former Senior Government Officials o FSGO, ang pitong taon ng administrasyong Arroyo ay saksi sa paulit-ulit, patuloy at malalang paglabag sa mandato ng Konstitusyon na nakasama sa mamamayang Pilipino.

“Iresponsable at makasariling ginamit ni Gloria Macapagal Arroyo ang kapangyarihan ng pagkapangulo na nagpalala sa ‘pitong sumpa’ na lalong nagpahirap sa bansa,” pahayag ng FSGO.

Hinimok pa ng FSGO ang mga mamamayan na tasahin ang plano ng administrasyon para sa kinabukasan ng bansa sa kabila ng nakalipas na rekord nito.

Ang pitong sumpa na diumano’y “sumalanta” sa bansa ay ang mga sumusunod:

* Isang bansang hindi mapakain ang kanyang mga mamamayan.
* Lumalalang kahirapan at lumalaking di-pagkakapantay-pantay
* Nabubulok na batayang serbisyong panlipunan
* Kanser ng korupsiyon
* Walang habas na pag-abuso sa kapangyarihan ng Pangulo
* Ilehitimong Pangulo
* Isang bansang ninakawan

Sa kabila nito, nagpahayag naman ng pag-asa ang FSGO na maibabalik pa ang demokrasya sa bansa. Nangangarap ang grupo ng isang bansa na mas maganda sa bansang iguguhit ni Pangulong Arroyo sa kanyang State of the Nation Address sa darating na Hulyo 28.

“Maaaring ninakaw sa atin ng administrasyon ang Republika, subalit hindi nito mananakaw sa atin ang pag-asa,” anila.

PITO sa sampung Pilipino ang namamatay nang hindi nabibigyan ng atensiyong medikal. Sampung ina ang namamatay kada araw sa panganganak. May 30% lamang ng populasyon ang nakakabili ng esensyal na mga gamot. Tatlong beses na mas malaki ang karaniwang bill sa ospital kaysa karaniwang kita sa isang buwan.

Tiyak na hindi babanggitin ni Pangulong Arroyo ang kalunos-lunos na mga estadistikang pangkalusugan na ito sa kanyang Sona (State of the Nation Address) sa Hulyo 28.

Kaya naman ang mga doktor, propesyunal pangkalusugan, at mga estudyante ng narsing at medisina na ang naghayag ng tinatawag nilang “Tunay na Kalagayang Pangkalusugan ng Mamamayan,” sa isang press conference noong Hulyo 25.

Pinalalala ng “kapabayaan” ng gobyernong Arroyo sa kalusugan ng mga mamamayan ang matinding kagutuman at kahirapan na kanilang dinaranas, ayon sa Head (Health Alliance for Democracy), AHW (Alliance of Health Workers), CHD (Council for Health and Development), at Health Science Students-Act Now!

Philhealth at Botika ng Bayan: limitado

Inaasahang lalamanin muli ng Sona ang mga programang pangkalusugan na bahagi ng mga nakamit ng gobyernong Arroyo—tulad halimbawa ng bilang ng mga Botika ng Bayan na itinayo at ng mga kard ng Philhealth (Philippine Health Insurance Corp.) na naipamahagi diumano sa mahihirap.

Ipinasa rin ng Kongreso ngayong taon ang Universally Accessible Cheaper and Quality Medicines Act o Republic Act 9205, na layong ibaba ang mataas na presyo ng gamot.

Pero ayon kay Dr. Gene Nisperos, pangkalahatang kalihim ng Head, limitado, mapanlinlang sa publiko, at walang makabuluhang pagbabagong dulot ang nasabing mga “pamana” ng Pangulo sa kalusugang bayan.

Noong 2006, ipinagmalaki ni Arroyo na 80% ng populasyon ang nasasaklaw ng Philhealth—programang health insurance ng gobyerno na nagbibigay ng diskuwento sa gamot at pagpapaospital.

Pero hinihinalang ibinuhos lamang ng administrasyon ang pamamahagi ng mga kard ng Philhealth para sa 2007 halalan, tulad ng ginawa nito noong 2004 halalan. Pinatutunayan ng ilang pag-aaral na hindi malawak at sustenido ang saklaw nito.

Ayon sa sarbey ng grupong Kilosbayan Para sa Kalusugan noong Agosto 2007 sa pitong pampublikong ospital, 30% lamang ng mga pasyente ang may Philhealth.

Sa tantiya rin ng National Institute of Health o NIH, sentro ng pananaliksik sa University of the Philippines Manila, mas mababa ng 20% ang aktuwal na mga nasasaklaw ng Philhealth kaysa sa bilang na ipinagmamalaki ng gobyerno.

Sinabi pa ng NIH na hindi saklaw ng Philhealth ang serbisyong out-patient sa mga ospital. Diumano’y bihira din (17% lamang ng pagkakataon) maserbisyuhan ang mga dependent ng mga miyembro ng Philhealth.

Samantala, may 11,900 Botika sa Barangay at 1,840 Botika ng Bayan, na dapat nagbebenta ng gamot sa mas murang halaga, sa buong bansa.

Pero ayon kay Dr. Eleanor Jara, executive director ng CHD, kadalasang “walang laman” ang mga ito—tulad na lamang ng Botika ng Bayan sa Payatas, Quezon City.

Mahal pa rin umano ang benta sa mga gamot dito. Halimbawa, ang mefenamic acid, na P25 sa komersiyal na mga bilihan ng gamot, P11 sa mga botika ng gobyerno. Pero P2 lamang ito binibili ng DOH (Department of Health) mula sa India at Pakistan. “Ibig sabihin, kumita pa ang gobyerno. Kaya hindi nito ibinababa ang presyo ng gamot,” ani Jara.

Mahal na gamot dahil sa monopolyo

Duda rin si Jara na maibababa ng RA 9205 ang presyo ng gamot. Hindi kasi pinayagan ng mga mambabatas, sa interbensiyon umano ng multinasyunal na mga kompanya ng gamot, na magkaroon ng Drug Price Regulatory Board. May kapangyarihan sana ang nasabing board, na bubuuin ng representante ng iba’t ibang sektor, na pababain ang presyo ng gamot.

Sa halip, ang Pangulo lamang ang binigyan ng mandato na kontrolin ang presyo ng gamot. “Walang rekord si Pangulong Arroyo ng pagbangga sa pagkakamal ng tubo ng multinasyunal na mga kompanya ng gamot. Pinayagan niya ito sa nakaraang pitong taon, ano ang magagawa niya ngayon?” sabi ni Jara.

Kontrolado ng mga multinasyunal na kompanya ng gamot ang 72% ng industriya, na kumita ng P9.11-Bilyon noong 2006. Ayon sa mga grupong pangkalusugan, hindi binabasag ng RA 9205 ang monopolyo sa industriya.

Sa halip na paunlarin ang sariling industriya, umano’y pinananatili rin ng batas ang pagiging palaasa ng bansa sa inangkat na mga gamot, sa pamamagitan ng parallel importation.

Doktor at nars, patuloy sa pangingibang-bansa

Maging ang mga estudyante ng narsing, tutol sa pagdausdos ng kalidad ng edukasyong pangkalusugan. Bunga umano ito ng agresibong pag-uudyok sa kanila ng gobyerno na mangibang-bansa, sa halip na maglingkod sa sariling bayan.

“Kaming mga estudyante ng narsing, kailangan mag-duty ng walo hanggang 12 oras, kahit sa gabi o sa weekends. Nagbabayad kami ng sobra-sobrang matrikula at iba pang miscellaneous fees. Kapag hindi kami nakapag-duty, kailangan namin magbayad ng libu-libong piso, at mag-duty ng tatlong araw para sa isang araw ng pagka-absent,” sabi ni Karen Jamora, tagapagsalita ng Health Science Students-Act Now!

Aniya pa, “di-bayad na lakas-paggawa” at “gatasan” ang mga estudyante ng narsing sa mahigit 400 paaralan sa buong bansa. Nagbabayad ang mga estudyante ng narsing ng P25,000 hanggang P40,000 matrikula kada semestre.

Nababahala naman si Julie Caguiat, executive director ng Commed o Community Medicine Development Inc., sa pagnanars ng mga doktor sa mga probinsiya. May 80 hanggang 90% umano ng mga municipal health officer sa buong bansa ang kumukuha ng narsing.

Kahit gustong magserbisyo ng mga doktor sa mga pasyenteng Pilipino, napipilitan umano ang karamihan na mangibang-bansa dahil sa kagipitang dulot ng mababang pasahod. “Kung wala kang doktor, sino ang magrereseta ng gamot? Sino ang magbibigay ng serbisyong pangkalusugan?” ani Caguiat.

Samantala, hindi kuntento ang AHW, alyansa ng mga manggagawang pangkalusugan, sa 10% dagdag-na-sahod na ipinatupad ng gobyernong Arroyo kamakailan. Anila, katumbas lamang ito ng P18.65 kada araw para sa mga nasa Salary Grade 1.

Hinaing nila, maging ang Nursing Law, na inaakyat ang mga bagong nars sa Salary Grade 15 o P16,000 kada buwan, hindi ipinatutupad sa mga ospital dahil sa kakulangan sa badyet.

P3,000 across-the-board na dagdag-na-sahod ang panawagan ng AHW, kasama ng iba pang mga empleyado ng gobyerno.

‘Di malusog ang bayan

Ayon sa World Health Organization, ang kalusugan ay “kalagayan ng kumpletong pisikal, mental, at sosyal na kapakanan, hindi lamang ang kawalan ng sakit.”

Sa ganitong pamantayan, ani Nisperos, hindi malusog ang bayan. “Sa ilalim globalisasyon at neo-liberal na polisiyang pang-ekonomiya, salaula ang kapakanan ng mga mamamayan at naglipana ang sakit. Ang mayroon lamang, buhay na pinagkaitan ng dignidad at batayang mga pangangailangan,” kanyang pagtatapos.

QANTAS TERROR AT 29,000 FEET

QANTAS Jumbo in forced landing at Manila

Gaping hole in fuselage

Manila, 25 July (a)

A Qantas Boeing 747, flight QF30, flying en-route from London to Melbourne made a dramatic emergency landing in Manila after a gaping hole in its fuselage caused decompression.

Passengers said the jumbo which had just made a stopover in Hong Kong, dropped 6,000 meters in seconds as oxygen masks were deployed. The pilots had to drop to 10,000 feet so the air was dense enough for passengers to breathe normally.

Australian and Philippine experts are conducting an investigation into how the hole, the size of a small van, happened in the baggage hold. Some of the baggage was sucked out after the incident.

Carrying 346 passengers and 19 crew, there was no panic inside the plane as the crew made the emergency landing in Manila. It was not until the passengers and crew left the plane after landing safely did they realize the extent of the damage. It had been assumed a door in the hold had come open.

Qantas Airways boasts of having an exemplary safety record, having never lost a plane in a crash. Several years ago a QANTA plane made a heavy landing in Bangkok which all but destroyed it, but the airline spent millions rebuilding the plane to keep its record intact.

QANTAS have said it is sending another plane for the passengers to continue their journey.

The plane is not blocking any runway and is believed the Lufthansa Hangar at NAIA will conduct the repairs.

Although the investigation is going to be thorough, a QANTAS spokesman would only say that a hole in the cargo area happened but would not say what caused it.

New Zealand students offer reward for arrest of Rice

July 26, 2008

Call US state secretary ‘war criminal’

WELLINGTON — New Zealand university students offered a reward Friday for anyone making a citizens’ arrest of visiting US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as an alleged war criminal.

Rice was due to arrive in Auckland late Friday ahead of talks on Saturday with Prime Minister Helen Clark and Foreign Minister Winston Peters.

Auckland University Student Association (AUSA) president David Do said the reward of $5,000 NZ ($3,725 US) was being offered for Rice’s arrest for her role in “overseeing the illegal invasion and continued occupation” of Iraq.

“We thought we’d give our students a chance to make a dent in their student loans and work for global justice at the same time,” Do said.

Police said any attempt to make a citizen’s arrest could lead to “very serious consequences”.

“I would strongly advise the association representatives who’ve put this challenge out, to withdraw it immediately so as to avoid being caught up in something much bigger than they may have anticipated,” said Auckland district commander, Superintendent Brett England.

Rice is due to leave New Zealand on Sunday for Samoa, where she will hold talks with foreign ministers from the 16-nation Pacific Islands Forum.(PDI)

Ex-actress’ alleged moves to force maid to withdraw case hit

July 23, 2008

By Marlon Ramos Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines — Alleged machinations by a former actress and sister of a lawmaker to force her housemaid to withdraw the criminal cases that had been filed against her have been denounced by several groups.

“Mi-an,” 17, a native of Basi, Samar, lodged several complaints against Princess Revilla, younger sister of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., for allegedly physically maltreating her with a broomstick.

The housemaid escaped from her employer’s house in the posh Valle Verde Subdivision and was “rescued” by village officials of Barangay (village) Ugong, Pasig City last June 11.

Irene Alogoc, one of the housemaid’s volunteer counsels, disclosed Tuesday that her client’s mother and aunt suddenly showed up during the preliminary investigation at the Pasig City Prosecutor’s Office last week and tried to convince the complainant to retract her affidavit.

Alogoc said they had filed cases of physical injuries, violation of Republic Act 7610 (Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act) and Republic Act (Anti-Child Labor Act) against Revilla, whose real name is Rebecca Bautista-Ocampo.

Alogoc said the victim’s mother, Erminia Arota, repeatedly asked her daughter “to just go home to Samar and forget about the case.”

She said the mother likewise tried to forcibly take her daughter away from the social workers who had been taking care of her since she fled Revilla’s house.

“The girl was very determined to pursue the case. She told her mother that she would not return to their province until her legal battle is over,” Alogoc said in a press briefing in Quezon City.

The lawyer also lambasted Revilla’s camp for allegedly peddling wrong information to the media in a bid to discredit those helping the housemaid, including the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Eva Lawas, DSWD social worker, said they were baffled by the presence of the complainant’s relatives at the preliminary hearing.

Lawas said they were surprised when they learned that Mi-an’s mother, sister, and two aunts boarded a plane from Samar so that they could attend the scheduled hearing last July 14.

She said the four were now staying at a hotel in Pasay City.

“Even the victim was puzzled by her mother’s attendance at the hearing. How could her mother afford to buy plane tickets and stay at a hotel when they couldn’t even buy a kilo of rice?” Lawas told the Philippine Daily Inquirer, parent company of INQUIRER.net.

Lawas, however, declined to comment when asked if Revilla might have contacted the victim’s mother and paid for her travel from Samar.

“I don’t want to speculate. But the girl said she was sure her mother already received a big sum of money from Revilla,” she said.

Meanwhile, Gabriela has thrown its support behind Mi-an after she sought the support of the militant women’s group.

Emmi de Jesus, Gabriela secretary general, said they received a handwritten letter from the victim asking for their assistance.

De Jesus said the victim’s experience mirrored the deplorable plight of more than 140,000 underage housemaids and child workers in the country.

“Social inequity battered [Mi-an] twice. First, instead of going to school, she was forced to work as a maid. Second, she had to endure the merciless torture in the hands of her privileged employer,” she read from a prepared statement.

Soldier gets life for kidnap of 6 civilians

July 21, 2008

Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 05:47:00 07/21/2008

PROSPERIDAD, AGUSAN DEL SUR—A Regional Trial Court judge here has sentenced an Army soldier to life imprisonment in a landmark ruling related to the involuntary disappearance in 2000 of six civilians suspected of being communist New People’s Army sympathizers.

Judge Dante Luz Viacrucis of RTC Branch 6, in his July 18 decision, found Army corporal Rodrigo Billones guilty of kidnapping and serious illegal detention of civilians Artemio Ayala Jr., Joseph Belar, Arnold Dangquiasan, Jovencio Lagare, Diosdado Oliver and Romualdo Orcullo.

The ruling came after an eight-year trial with the prosecution and relatives of the victims presenting an Army sergeant who testified against Billones.

Viacrucis said the testimony of Sgt. Exequias Duyogan bolstered the case against Billones after he was identified as the leader of a group of soldiers belonging to the Army’s 62 Infantry Battalion (IB) that snatched the victims who were then attending a party in Trento town on Oct. 14, 2000.

Viacrucis also ordered the Department of Justice to conduct a separate inquiry on the criminal culpability of Col. Eutiqui Cabando Jr., former commander of the 62nd IB, his executive officer Lt. Enrico Calumag and 11 other soldiers who were separately implicated by Duyogan.

Lawyer John Unay, counsel of the victim’s families hailed the court’s ruling as it finally served justice.

“The ruling defeats the myth that nothing can be done in cases of involuntary disappearance. This is a landmark ruling,” Unay said.

But Unay said there was still much legal work to do to hold Cabando and Calumag criminally accountable for the victim’s disappearance.

“Under the doctrine of command responsibility, they (Cabando and Calumag) must be held accountable for the acts of their men,” he said.

He said they have enough testimonial evidence to prove that Cabando and Calumag had a direct hand in the disappearance that was allegedly carried out to avenge the death of Cabando’s predecessor who was ambushed by NPA rebels months before the abduction.

“Cabando had a hand in the incident,” he said.

Unay, however, concedes that a case against the Army official, who has since retired from service, faces an uphill battle because the bodies of the victims have not been found.

“The victims were tortured and burned, so when there’s no body, then there’s no crime. But we are not losing hope,” Unay said. Franklin A. Caliguid, Inquirer Mindanao

‘Helen’ threatens Batanes

July 14, 2008

MANILA, Philippines — Tropical depression “Helen” maintained its strength, but was almost stationary, as it continued to threaten the northernmost Batanes province late Monday morning, the state weather bureau said.

At 10 a.m., the storm, which packs maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour near the center, was located 360 kilometers east of Batanes’ capital town, Basco, , the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 11 a.m. bulletin.

The storm is expected to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rains over Luzon, PAGASA said.

“The storm will pass near Batanes and is headed in the general direction of Taiwan,” PAGASA director Prisco Nilo said in a phone interview.

Moving west “slowly,” the storm is forecast to be at 280 kilometers east of Basco on Tuesday morning, 190 kilometers east of Basco by Wednesday morning, and 120 kilometers east of Basco by Thursday morning, according to the PAGASA bulletin.

The state weather bureau warned residents in low-lying areas against flash floods and landslides.

Sulpicio has own law of the sea

July 14, 2008

Amando Doronila
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—In the wake of the multiple inquiries into the June 21 sinking of the MV Princess of the Stars, its owner, Sulpicio Lines, has so far emerged virtually unscathed. It has not been held to account for the disaster.

The inquiries both in Congress and by government bureaucratic authorities during the past two weeks have raked over the coals state agencies charged with ensuring public safety on maritime travel.

They have allowed Sulpicio Lines officials to get off lightly by focusing on public officials, instead of putting the shipping company in the hot seat. Sulpicio Lines has also demonstrated it has imposed its own law of the sea with the dangerous overtones of demolishing government regulatory authority on maritime safety.

While the inquiries were under way, taking the full glare of publicity, Sulpicio Lines mounted an aggressive campaign in the legal and legislative systems to shift the blame for the ferry disaster off Sibuyan Island.

The company’s wide range of culprits included God (for producing storms that sink ships) and the weather bureau and agencies responsible for stopping ships from heading recklessly head-on into typhoon paths (despite storm warnings).

This campaign was unleashed even though Sulpicio Lines had blood on its hands, with 800 passengers and crew still listed as missing, entombed in the capsized ferry, and with its hold carrying a cargo of toxic pesticide that threatens to poison marine life.

The lopsided focus on the accountability of public authorities has left an outraged public asking: The smoking gun is inside the sunken ship, consisting of entombed human corpses, why are inquiries not holding Sulpicio Lines primarily accountable for the sea carnage despite the evidence of lost human lives?

Probes to exculpate liner

Were the inquiries staged to exculpate Sulpicio Lines and to give the company a forum to look for scapegoats to demonstrate that government officials did not provide the shipowners, their captain, with information to allow their ship to steer clear of danger?

The hearings at the Board of Marine Inquiry (BMI) and the House committees on transport and oversight were biased for Sulpicio Lines and against the regulatory authorities in terms of giving them a forum to denounce public regulatory agencies.

Were the hearings held to whitewash Sulpicio Lines and give it a platform to mount a public opinion offensive on a wide front to divert focus from its own accountability?

In the congressional hearing, many citizens have been prompted to ask on whose behalf and for whose benefit their representatives in the House were asking questions. The fate of the victims apparently was the issue of least concern to members of Congress.
In the bureaucratic boards and legislative hearings, the queries were directed at highlighting procedural flaws on marine safety regulations for the traveling public. It seems the public had no friends in these hearings.

Public unprotected

In the hearings, the public appeared forlorn and unprotected while Sulpicio Lines seemed to have friends in strategic forums ready to bail the company out of trouble and to shield it from pressure to remove the toxic cargo, to pay financial liabilities to the drowned victims, to retrieve the corpses and to allow the dead a decent burial.

In its aggressive legal offensive, Sulpicio Lines filed a number of suits. In one, the Manila Regional Trial Court rejected the company’s petition for a temporary restraining order to stop the BMI inquiry. Sulpicio Lines claimed that the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) had sole jurisdiction to inquire into maritime disaster and added that the BMI was “biased.”

The company took advantage of the ambiguous overlap of jurisdictions of several government regulatory agencies overseeing the industry. However, the court gave the BMI the go-ahead to continue with its hearings.

Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez saw through the tactic of Sulpicio Lines to plaster the government with multiple suits.

He said the company was attempting to evade responsibility for the tragedy by filing, among other things, criminal charges against the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) for allegedly failing to inform the ferry of the approaching typhoon, and Del Monte Philippines, allegedly for not declaring the toxic pesticide cargo.

‘Squid tactics’

Both PAGASA and Del Monte have disputed these allegations. Gonzalez said suits by Sulpicio Lines were “squid tactics.”

PAGASA has presented evidence that it issued periodic weather warnings tracking the typhoon path. Evidence showed that Sulpicio Lines disregarded these warnings and did not exercise prudence by allowing its ferry to sail into the typhoon’s path, while other major shipping lines tied their ships at port.

Sulpicio Lines has also filed a P3-million civil damage suit against PAGASA for allegedly giving “inaccurate” weather reports on Typhoon “Frank” (international code name: Fengshen). It accused Pagasa of “gross negligence and incompetence” in predicting the typhoon’s path.

Despite the strong pressure of the shipping lobby in Cebu, MARINA is not lifting its order grounding all vessels of Sulpicio Lines until the agency completes its audit of seaworthiness of the entire fleet. The issue here is between passenger and cargo safety and the commercial interests of the company.

Next in hot seat

The House committees on transport and oversight resume their hearing on Thursday on the ferry sinking, promising to put Sulpicio Lines in the hot seat. The shift of focus was prompted by criticism that the shipping company had gotten off the hook in last week’s hearings.

Bacolod City Rep. Monico Puentebella, chair of the transport committee, admitted that the grilling last week was focused on the liability of government regulatory agencies, allowing Sulpicio Lines to escape scrutiny. Thursday’s hearing seeks to restore balance in the inquiry.

The correction course also puts the credibility of the committees on the line. Let’s see if the committees could stop the lawyers of Sulpicio Lines from the war path of demolition of the government’s regulatory authority over shipping lines that have drowned more than 4,000 passengers during the past 28 years.
