The police apprehended an alleged gun-for-hire group leader at Rizal-Lacson streets, Bacolod City , at about 2 a.m. yesterday Station 1 chief, Senior Insp. Luisito Acebuche, said.

Wennie Sancho, who is still deliberating on the amount to be sought, said he will file his petition before the RTWPB next week.

President Gloria Arroyo's lifting of Executive Order No. 839 that had set a ceiling on oil prices will open the floodgates and trigger hikes in the cost of basic goods and services, he said. moremoremore
