Raps filed before NEA
vs. 5 Ceneco officials


The chairperson of the Partido ng Manggagawa-Negos has filed a complaint against five officials of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative before the National Electrification Administration for reappointing Sulpicio Lagarde as CENECO general manager.

Teofilo Agravante Jr., PM-Negros chairperson, filed the complaint against CENECO president Edward Gasambelo and directors Roberto Montelibano, Luis Cuenca and Paul Lizares, and Lagarde for alleged grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty, and conduct prejudicial to the interests of the electric cooperative and member- consumers.

He also cited them for alleged grave abuse of authority and discretion in implementing projects or important undertakings of the cooperative and for issuing an illegal order in the disbursing of CENECO funds without prior board resolution.moremoremore

Cops to include Ka Frank
in multiple murder charges

Senior Supt. Manuel Felix, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, yesterday said the police is slated to amend the multiple murder complaints they had filed against suspected New People’s Army rebels believed to be behind the ambush-slay of three civilians and the wounding of three others in Toboso, Negros Occidental.

The charges will include priest-turned-rebel Frank Fernandez and Ka Cecil Estrella as among the additional respondents, Felix said.

He said the names of Fernandez, spokesman of the local National Democratic Front, and Estrella of the Roselyn “Ka Jean” Pelle Command, will be included as respondents, because of the admission they had made in the media.moremoremore

A DAILY STAR source said that, at a top level UNA meeting held at Nature’s Village Resort in Talisay City yesterday noon, the consensus was that Marañon would run for governor under the local coalition composed of members of the Lakas-KAMPI-CMD, Nationalist People’s Coalition and other national parties.

However, Marañon, when reached by the DAILY STAR, refused to comment on the UNA consensus, saying that Gov. Isidro Zayco has been designated their official spokesman.moremoremore
