Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo yesterday condemned the brutal killing of the four Kapitan Ramon barangay officials and the injury of three others in Silay City, and said the government will ensure that the lone suspect will be put behind bars.

Robredo said that because of the incident in Silay City, local officials should exercise extra caution in the performance of their functions, especially in the fight against graft and corruption.

“While we urge our local officials to be firm and resolute in the campaign against graft and corruption, they should also be cautious in dealing with the issue,” Robredo said. moremoremore

New Negros police chiefs
appointments set to start


The Philippine National Police in Negros Occidental will begin appointing police chiefs for the towns and cities of Negros Occidental starting March 16, Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, Negros Occidental police director, said yesterday.

On March 1 Guisihan relieved the police chiefs of all towns and cities of the province and designated officers-in-charge to the vacated positions.

The revamp is being conducted to step up the campaign against the illegal numbers game, and to address the problem of overstaying police chiefs and the morale of junior officers.moremoremore
