Prosecutors in Negros
not set for mass leave


Bacolod and Negros Occidental prosecutors have not decided yet whether to join their counterparts in Central Luzon planning to go on a mass leave, but said it could be a possibility.

Bacolod City Prosecutor Armando Abanado said the prosecutors of Western Visayas have issued a manifesto, condemning the “trial of publicity” against members of the Department of Justice Task Force on Anti-Illegal Drugs, Chief Prosecutor Jovencito and Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez

DOJ Undersecretary Ricardo Blancaflor, Zuño and two senior prosecutors are on indefinite leave upon orders of President Macapagal-Arroyo over the bribery scandal involving the so-called “Alabang Boys,” but the WV prosecutors said an investigation should have been conducted first and they should have been given due process.moremoremore

Sugar leaders yesterday welcomed the call of Board Member Enrique Miguel Lacson for a consultative meeting to map out a unified response to an expected long dead season in the sugar industry.

“It is a good idea and we fully support it,” Enrique Rojas, president of the National Federation of Sugarcane Workers, said yesterday.

Sugar planters usually take care of their workers on their own during the off milling season but the move of Lacson to discuss a plan now is welcome, he said.
