CSC orders dismissal
of NORSU president
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Civil Service Commission has ordered the dismissal of Dr. Henry Sojor, president of the Negros Oriental State University, from the service after he was found guilty of nepotism.

The decision was based on a complaint filed several years ago against Sojor for allegedly hiring the services of his half-sister, Estrella Sojor Mananquil, as a casual clerk of NORSU.

In its latest ruling promulgated February 1, the Civil Service Commission meted the penalty of dismissal from the service with all the accessory penalties of forfeiture of retirement benefits, disqualification from re-employment in the government service, cancellation of eligibility and barring him from taking any civil service examination.

Four nabbed in drug busts
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Task Force Kasaligan has again proven that it is not only after the “small fish” in its all-out campaign against illegal drugs.

It conducted two buy-bust operations  against sons of well known individuals in Dumaguete City on Monday.

Nabbed during the buy-bust operation were Justice Aguilar, son of a former barangay captain of Barangay Tinago, and Raymund Ong, son of a known businessman in Dumaguete City.

Court junks poll protest
versus Sibulan mayor

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Regional Trial Court Branch 40 has dismissed the election contest filed by defeated Sibulan mayoralty candidate Emmanuel Diputado against the elected mayor Marcela Bartoces.

 After the revision of the ballots, it was found out that Bartoces was leading not just by fourteen votes but by 42,   Judge Gerardo Paguio Jr., in his decision dated January 17, said.

Diputado contested the election of Bartoces as mayor of Sibulan with a difference of only 14 votes, alleging that the results in nine clustered precincts did not reflect the true desire of the voters because the Precinct Count Optical Scan machines rejected the ballots through technical and mechanical errors.
