Church consolidates
forces versus RH bill
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday announced the creation of the Citizens Alliance for the Protection of Human Life that will actively campaign in Negros Occidental against the passage of the reproductive health bill by Congress.

Navarra, who is the honorary chairman of the alliance, said he is calling on all congressmen to prevent the passage of House Bill 96 and on the President to veto it if approved by the House.

The aim of the alliance is to involve all sectors who are convinced of the need to protect human life, whether born or unborn, Navarra said at a press conference at the Bishop’s House.moremoremore

SC halts CARP
on Arroyo land

BY LISA GAPAC

The First Division of the Supreme Court has issued a temporary restraining order on the installation, distribution, and land titling of 157 hectares in Hacienda Bacan in Isabela, Negros Occidental, originally owned by the Arroyo family.

On October 26 last year, 64 farmer-beneficiaries of Hacienda Bacan received their certificate of land ownership but no installation has been made since then, Task Force Mapalad spokesperson Edna Sobrecaray said yesterday.

TFM is questioning DAR for not immediately installing the beneficiaries of the land before the Rivulet Agro-Industrial Corp., which is owned by the Arroyo family, filed an appeal before the SC. moremoremore
