Cable firm to refund city
for failed live fight telecast

The Champion Box Enterprises will refund the Bacolod City government its down payment of P53,500 for its failure to air the live telecast of the fight between Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao and British champion Ricky “Hitman” Hatton Sunday in Bacolod City, CBE marketing supervisor Junelo Castillo said yesterday.

Castillo said they were able to have a test broadcast the night before the Pacquiao-Hatton match. However, they did not expect that they would not be able to have access to the service provider before the fight started Sunday, he said.

The failed live telecast could have been “caused by sabotage by competing parties” and there was nothing they could do since the matter was beyond their control, Castillo said. “We apologize to the people and the city officials, as well as (to) our clients for the incident,” he said.moremoremore

Rapid action,
quarantine teams created


Gov. Isidro Zayco yesterday said he has issued an executive order creating the Provincial Task Force on Swine Flu or A(H1N1) and Emerging Zoonotic Diseases, which includes rapid action, surveillance  and quarantine teams.

The task force is in line with a Department of Health advisory to take precautionary measures to prevent the entry of the H1N1 virus, he said.

The Bureau of Quarantine in the Philippines has already instituted precautionary measures at possible entry points in the country, and local governments  have been requested to be on the lookout for persons with the A(H1N1) virus and to immediately report such cases to the National Epidemiology Center or the Health Emergency Management Staff, Zayco said.moremoremore
