PNP debunks reports
of bank robbery plots

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Negros Oriental provincial police director, Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, appealed Monday to the public to be cautious about passing on unverified information about groups suspected to be planning to stage hostilities or commit felonies in Dumaguete City and other parts of Negros Oriental.

Lawas was reacting to reports that a group of Muslims that had arrived in Dumaguete, is planning to rob banks and other financial institutions.

Lawas said there was a breakdown in communication because the original message only mentioned the presence of Badjaos near some banks.

A non-government organization working for the welfare of children with disabilities expressed sadness in the loss of the late Negros Oriental Gov. Agustin Perdices, who had paved the way for the integration in mainstream society of these special children.
