Ex-governor cleared
of kidnapping raps

The Office of the Ombudsman has dismissed the kidnapping charges filed against former Negros Oriental Gov. Jose Baldado for lack of merit.

In a 12-page Resolution dated July 5, 2011, Acting Ombudsman Orlando Casimiro approved the recommendation of Graft Investigation and Prosecution Officer Francis Euston Acero and Preliminary Investigation, Administrative Adjudication and Review Bureau Director Mary Antonette Yalao to dismiss the charge filed against Baldado and Romeo Sablada, a  tanod of barangay Candabong, Manjuyod town, on March 5, 2010.

Baldado and Sablada were charged with Kidnapping, Serious Illegal Detention Grave Coercion and Child Abuse at the height of last year’s campaign period, where Baldado, who, at that time was vice-governor, was a candidate for governor.

Province among top
‘mgm’t performers’


Negros Oriental was among the top 10 local government units in the country chosen for management performance, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo said.

Robredo made the announcement during the visit of President Benigno Aquino III in Bais City, in Dumaguete and in Negros Oriental, recently.

Robredo said the DILG salutes the leadership of the province headed by Gov. Roel Degamo that placed Negros Oriental in the top 4 having one of the highest ratings in management performance, with the cities of Bayawan and Dumaguete.
