Court denies TRO on
old slaughterhouse

The Regional Trial Court denied for lack of merit the civil case filed by an executive assistant of former Mayor Luzviminda Valdez against the Bacolod City government seeking the continued operation of the old slaughterhouse in Barangay 35, Bacolod City, and to restrain the city from declaring meat not coming from the new slaughterhouse in Handumanan as “hot meat.”

The case for preliminary mandatory and/or prohibitory injunction with prayer for issuance of temporary restraining order was filed last year by former executive assistant Joaquin Medina et al, against the Bacolod City government represented by Mayor Evelio Leonardia, the Sangguniang Panlungsod and City Veterinarian Dr. Adelo Daroy.

The petitioners include meat vendors, butchers, hog dealers and lechon vendors.moremoremore

Business tycoon Eduardo Cojuangco doesn’t have cancer, his son says*

The son of Eduardo "Danding" Cojuangco  belied rumors yesterday that the business tycoon was gravely ill with cancer.

"There is not a grain of truth in the rumors that my father has cancer," Rep. Mark Cojuangco (Pangasinan, 5th District) told the DAILY STAR.

The congressman was reacting to rumors that Cojuangco, chairman of San Miguel Corp., had died or that he has fourth stage cancer.

He said his father was keeping a full work schedule and was at his office at San Miguel Corp. yesterday.moremoremore
