‘Ex-cop-turned-rebel’
dies in road accident

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

A man believed to be a former police intelligence officer, who had defected to the New People’s Army many years ago, died in a road accident at the south national highway of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental Saturday.

Police investigators have not confirmed it yet, but the man, whose driver’s license gives the name of Dave Aguilar Mercado, is believed to be Senior Police Officer 2 Joel Geollegue, formerly the deputy provincial chief of the Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group in Negros Oriental.

This was before his defection to the NPA in northern Negros, for alleged “rampant corruption” and “injustice” during the Arroyo administration.

DOLE forms group to probe
recruitment for ‘paaling’

BY RENE GENOVE

The Department of Labor and Employment has created a Technical Working Group to address the new string of complaints about the recruitment of fish workers for "paaling" fishing in Ayungon, Negros Oriental.

Paaling is a deep-sea compressor fishing activity similar to “muro-ami” where fishermen, using crude apparatus, usually of junk iron and steel material, pound coral reefs to scare and drive fish into a net laid out on the ocean floor.

In a consultative dialog, Ayungon Mayor Edsel Enardecido proposed to government officials concerned to form a TWG to determine each role in monitoring individuals or business engaged in paaling fishing.
