Negrenses seek
P117M payment


Eleven Bacolod residents have filed petitions for intervention in cases filed against Legacy Consolidated Plans Inc. headed by Celso de los Angeles before the Regional Trial Court of Makati City and notices of claims  representing P117 million worth of investments in a double your money scheme, their lawyer Cesar Distrito said.

The latest development is that the court has already appointed an assignee who will collate all the assets of the corporation and manage its distribution to the claimants, the lawyer said.

De los Angeles has asked for an extension of 20 days to comply with the order of the court to submit a list of assets which will be due on July 22, Distrito added.

‘Come get me,
spare innocent civilians’

A Toboso barangay chairman who claimed to be marked for liquidation by the New People’s Army, yesterday dared the rebels to come and get him, but appealed to them to spare the lives of innocent civilians.

“If they want me, I am just around. If they want war, so be it,” Eriberto Baynosa, barangay captain of Salamanca in Toboso, Negros Occidental, said.

Three civilians, including a 14-year-old, died, and three others were injured, in an ambush by about 30 NPA rebels Monday in Sitio Toril, Brgy. Salamanca, Toboso.moremoremore
