over Neg. Occ., Bacolod PNP

Senior Superintendents Edgardo Ordaniel and Celestino Guara, yesterday vowed to work for the reduction of crime incidents in their areas when they assumed yesterday as officers-in-charge of Bacolod City Police Office and Negros Occidental Police Office, respectively.

They were responding to the challenge of Police Regional Office-6 Director Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz for them to reduce crime incidents in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City by at least 20 percent this year. Cruz also stressed that there should be zero tolerance for policemen and civilians involved in illegal activities

Crime reduction in the Western Visayas was only about 17 percent in 2011, which is less than the target of the Regional Police which was 25 percent crime reduction, police records show.moremoremore

‘No US hike of PH
sugar quota share’


There will be no increase in the Philippines annual share of the US sugar quota because the United States and Mexico have a huge supply this crop year, Harry Kopp, Washington representative of the Philippine Sugar Alliance, said yesterday.

Kopp, who met with sugar leaders in Bacolod City at a dinner hosted by National Federation of Sugarcane Planters president Enrique Rojas at his residence, updated them on the sugar situation in the United States.

US Trade Representative Ron Kirk had earlier announced that the Philippines shares of the US sugar quota for Fiscal Year 2013 (Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013) will be 144,901 metric tons raw value (MTRV).moremoremore
