Murder raps filed vs.
NPA for La Castellana ambush

The police yesterday filed nine counts of murder against about 20 New People’s Army rebels for staging an ambush in Brgy. Puso, La Castellana, on Jan. 27, that claimed the lives of nine people and caused injuries to 12 others, before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Negros Occidental.

Senior Supt. Celestino Guara, caretaker of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, said the filing of charges against the rebel suspects in the massacre of civilians and a rookie police officer, was based on the accounts of two policemen who survived the incident.

Based on their investigations, Guara said, members of the second squad of the Casimba Platoon of the Larangan Gerilya I, headed by Magno Flores, were behind the massacre.moremoremore

‘Arrest warrants of rebel
actually liquidation list’

Army Col. Oscar Lactao, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, yesterday called a “liquidation list” the arrest warrants issued by the New People’s Army Roselyn Pelle Command to four of its former members they accused of being “traitors”.

Lactao said arrest warrants are only issued by a competent authority, such as judges.

Rebel spokesperson Cecil Estrella said in a statement furnished to the media, that they have issued arrest warrants against the four former NPA members Bonnie Tapang Baynosa, with aliases of Ka Red, Moreno and Je-an, of Brgy. San Isidro, Toboso; Dindo Lusadas, with aliases of Ka Dondel and Lobyen, of Brgy. Libertad, Escalante City; Erving Benas, with aliases of Ka Totong, Rio and Erol; and a certain Eugene, with aliases of Ka Reden and Milan, both residents of Brgys. E. Lopez and Guimbalaon in Silay City, whom they had expelled from the Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas, for collaborating with the 62nd Infantry Battalion.moremoremore

Julius Sayson a nuisance
candidate, Comelec rules


The Commission on Elections First Division has granted the request of Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson to declare his namesake, Julius Sayson as a nuisance candidate, Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said yesterday.

She said the Comelec also cancelled the certificate of candidacy of Julius Sayson for mayor of Bacolod City. In effect, therefore, he cannot run for the position of mayor.

Vice Mayor Sayson filed a petition on October 9, 2012, asking the Comelec to declare Julius Sayson a nuisance candidate for mayor of Bacolod City in the May 2013 national and local elections, and that his COC be denied due course, and eventually be cancelled.moremoremore
