28 NPAs surrender
en masse in Siaton

BY GILBERT BAYORAN

Twenty-eight Yunit Militia and Party Branch members of the Komiteng Rehiyonal Sentral Bisayas surrendered en masse Friday to the 79th Infantry Battalion in Siaton, Negros Oriental.

This was followed by the dismantling of the KRSB barangay revolutionary structure in Brgy. Mantiquil, Siaton, Lt. Col. Marion Sison, 7th IB commander, said.

Of the 28 rebel returnees, nine are members of the Sangay sa Partido sa Localidad, led by Rosalie Nama alias Pops, and 19 are members of Yunit Militia of Lubos na Asosasyong Masa, Solid Mass Association, under Diosdado Nama, “alias Dondi,” Sison, in his report to Brig. Gen. Jonas Sumagaysay, 3rd Infantry Division general-officer-in-charge, said.

Officials dared to declare
Dumaguete City ‘pro-life’

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Advocates against the Reproductive Health Law have challenged Dumaguete City officials to declare the city as pro-life.

At the pro-life symposium spearheaded by the Social Action Center of the Diocese of Dumaguete Saturday, Ligaya Acosta, regional director of the Human Life International for Asia and Oceania, lauded the city government for its active pro-life stance.

She said City Administrator William Ablong told her and Dr. Eleanor de Borja Payabyab, an obstetrician from Davao City, that Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria is not supportive of the RH Law.

The Dumaguete City Police is trying to decode a cryptic message found Saturday near the crime scene where an eight-year old girl was murdered last week in Barangay Bajumpandan, Dumaguete City.

Supt. James Goforth, chief of the Dumaguete Police, said yesterday that it is still unclear to investigators who the coded message was intended for and who wrote it.

But he said he believes it is linked to the death of the grade III pupil, who was raped and killed last week, and whose body was found in a sugarcane field near her home.
