Court denies Ceneco bid,
Murcia to garnish funds

Judge Franklin Demonteverde of the Regional Trial Court Branch 44 in Bacolod City has denied the bid of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative for a preliminary injunction on the demand of Murcia town for it to pay P16,182,449.02 in real property taxes.

Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano said yesterday that he is willing to sit down and discuss the matter with the Ceneco officials.

However, if Ceneco plays hardball, the municipal government will have no choice but begin garnishment proceedings on Ceneco funds at the start of the new year, Montelibano said.moremoremore

PNP: Don't fire guns
on New Year's eve

Chief Supt. Josephus Angan, regional police director of Western Visayas, warmed the public that they will not spare from arrest those who may fire their guns indiscriminately during the New Year's eve revelries.

Angan, who visited the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office and Bacolod City Police Office on Saturday, reminded NOPPO and BCPO policemen to strictly comply with the policy against indiscriminate firing.

The taping of gun muzzles will ensure that the firearms issued to all policemen in Western Visayas will not be used outside their call of duty, he added.moremoremore

Cops step up drive

The local Firearms Explosives Security Agency Group Services of the Philippine National Police has stepped up its campaign against banned firecrackers in Negros Occidental, and has confiscated P9,000 worth of illegal ones.

The FESAGS team conducted inspections of stalls selling firecrackers and pyrotechnics in Calatrava and Hinigaran towns, and the cities of San Carlos, Sagay, Escalante and Silay last week. It was led by Police Officers 3 Listini Lin Villasana and Gary Genelaso.

Villasana said the confiscated banned firecrackers were brought to Camp Alfredo Montelibano Sr. in Bacolod City, for proper disposition.moremoremore
