Arroyo’s plight draws
mixed views in Negros


The continued refusal of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima yesterday to allow former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and her husband, Mike, to leave the country, despite a Supreme Court ruling that she was free to seek medical care abroad, has drawn mixed reactions.

Arroyo was stopped from flying to Singapore at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Tuesday night, hours after the SC ruling.

The former president’s camp said she was suffering from fluctuating blood pressure yesterday and would try to leave for Singapore today.moremoremore

to stop sugar smuggling

Rep. Juan Ponce Enrile Jr. (Cagayan, 1st District) yesterday said he is seeking the creation of Anti-Smuggling and Dumping Task Force under the Department of Agriculture to protect local farmers, including the sugar industry.

Enrile, who held consultations in Bacolod yesterday, said the plan to create the task force is included in his House Bill 4626, or the Food for Filipinos Act of 2011, which aims to ensure that the country has adequate food supply to feed its people.

The congressman met with leaders of the sugar industry to get their inputs on how to further improve the bill to be relevant to their needs.moremoremore
