Mayor turns down request
for permit to visit clash site

Mayor Leon Lopez of Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental has reportedly refused to permit the Karapatan group to visit the Purok Payaw-payawan in Nagbinlod of the town, unless it secures authority from the Capitol first.

Senior Insp. Edwin Tuble, chief of police of Sta. Catalina, said some people who introduced themselves as members of Karapatan, visited Lopez Saturday to ask for such authority, in compliance with Provincial Ordinance No. 5 that requires any outreach activity and humanitarian missions anywhere in the province must have prior approval from the provincial government.

The group wanted to go to the site of the encounters last week where three people, tagged by the military as New People’s Army rebels, were killed, apparently to conduct a fact-finding mission, Tuble said.

Guv sinks P2M more
into CSF program

Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo has announced that he will pour in another P2 million into the Coopreneurship Surety Fund program in the province, in line with the livelihood phase of his Health, Education, Livelihood Program, a Philippine Information Agency press release said.

Degamo, speaking during the 42nd General Assembly of the Dumaguete City Credit Cooperative, recently said the additional funds intend to boost the small medium entrepreneurs and cooperatives in the province, as they play a major role in providing livelihood for the people.

City to construct
condominium for employees


Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria yesterday disclosed a plan for employees’ housing units in a 5,000 square meters land area in Barangay Bajumpandan.

Sagarbarria said the land area is ideal for a condominium type of housing that can accommodate at least 50 housing units. He added that the land was bought at P585 per square meters, based on the valuation made by the city government.

The National Housing Authority has agreed to invest in the housing project, while the city government will provide the land area, Sagarbarria said. The housing project will soon start once the entire project plan and all other needed documents will be completed, he said.
