LGU will not release
bounty, mayor says

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

A suspect has been apprehended and a criminal case filed in court but Bayawan City, Negros Oriental has not yet released the P100,000 reward money it had offered for the arrest of the suspects in the assassination attempt on Bayawan Councilor Victoriano Alabastro.

Bayawan Mayor Rene Gaudiel, however, said the reward offer still stands because that was the commitment of the city.

Gaudiel said he still has to verify the circumstances in the arrest and prosecution of suspected gun-for-hire Herman Escora of San Roque, Bayawan City, who had signed an extra-judicial confession that he was the team leader of a group contracted to kill Alabastro.

LTO to ban tricycles
traversing highway
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Land Transportation Office central office is pressuring its Dumaguete chief, Roland Ramos, to enforce a national law and a memorandum circular of the Department of Interior and Local Government banning tricycles along the national highway.

Ramos said his proposal at the meeting of the traffic management council in September was to divide the city into five zones, with the commercial district as zone one, but it was held in abeyance.

He said he was told by the national office last week that the LTO central office is acting on the petition of two groups of utility vehicles for hire, the JODAI and BERODA not to allow the pedicabs to traverse the national highway.

NDFP gives update
on peace process

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Members of the negotiating panel from the government and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines are in Dumaguete City to give updates on the peace process that was stalled last month.

Rafael Baylosis, of the NDFP reciprocal working committee on social and economic reforms of the peace process, said the indefinite postponement was due to government’s refusal to release five more of its consultants in various jails in the country.

He said four have already been released and NDFP is asking for five more for the talks to resume.
