Armed men entered an hacienda compound Saturday night in Brgy. E. Lopez, Silay City, Negros Occidental, shot and killed a farm worker, robbed its overseer at gunpoint, and took his daughter hostage while withdrawing from the place, the police said yesterday.

Investigations of the Silay police showed that the suspects, estimated at eight and armed with hand guns, proceeded to the house of Noel Espada, overseer of Hacienda San Diego Dos, owned by Joseph Jison.

Supt. Rosauro Francisco, Silay police chief, yesterday said the suspects also fired at farm workers who tried to help Espada, killing Rodolfo Sobritodo, 46, and injuring Erick Cordero, 37.moremoremore

NPA claims raid
on Philex mining


The New People’s Army-South West Front yesterday claimed responsibility for the raid and destruction of properties of the Philex Gold Mining Corp. in Brgy. Nabulao, Sipalay City.

The rebel group said they did it because of damages the company allegedly created against the lives, livelihood, health and environment of the people.

In a statement they issued, Andrea Guerrero, spokesperson of the Armando Sumayang Command, accused Philex of dumping toxic wastes in Mantuboy Creek, Bacuyangan and Sipalay River, which he claimed, resulted in fishkill in the shorelines of Sipalay, and loss of water source for irrigation to peasants and farmers.moremoremore
