Police on heightened alert
for anti-ConAss rally today


Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday reiterated his call to Negrenses to show their indignation over moves by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s allies in Congress to rewrite the Constitution, by joining a rally at the Bacolod public plaza this morning.

“Aside from prayers, which are badly needed at these critical times, we have  to show our very strong protest against the malicious manipulation of our sovereign will through ConAss (Constituent Assembly) that will be rammed down our throats,” Navarra said.

“God save our country,” he said.moremoremore

Teenager strangled to death,
suspect implicates her mother

The death of a 17-year-old college student believed to have died of strangulation at her residence in Silay City, Monday, took a twist when her mother was implicated by the arrested suspect in the crime.

Police chief, Supt. Jerry Bartolome, said Arlene Subico, 17, was found dead, with bloodstains in her genitals and an injury in the head, at about 3 p.m. Monday, in Hacienda Lugway, Brgy. Balaring, Silay City.

Almost seven hours later, a suspect identified by the Silay police as Joselito Magbanua, 22, a neighbor of the victim, was arrested by the police in the hacienda.
