CHR notes increase
in rights violations


The Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental yesterday said that rights violations, allegedly involving policemen of the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, have been reported in Manjuyod and Valencia towns and Dumaguete City in the past three weeks.

CHR field investigator Jesus Cañete said he has required the cops to file their counter-affidavits.

He said a 54-year-old resident claimed he was maltreated by policemen who arrested him in Tagpo, Manjuyod on May 23, without presenting the alias warrant of arrest for a murder case in 1988.

Cleft palate
operations help 15 kids


They now have the reason to smile.

Fifteen Negrense minors born with harelip and cleft palate conditions recently availed of free surgical operations by the Kiwanis Club of Cebu and Operation Rainbow Australia at the Dr. Ignacio Cortez General Hospital in Mandaue City, Cebu.

This was through the efforts of the Army’s 11th Infantry Battalion, that facilitated their inclusion among the beneficiaries. Three organizations and the local government of Canlaon City, Negros Oriental, provided them with medicines, billeting areas and meals for the week-long duration of the operations.

Philippine dog set for
hero’s welcome

MANILA – A mongrel dog is set for a hero's welcome when she returns to the Philippines following surgery in the United States to reconstruct her face after apparently saving two girls from being hit by a motorcycle.

Kabang was released from the University of California's Davis Veterinary Hospital on Monday after eight months of treatment in which her face was partially rebuilt and she was cured of cancer and heartworm.

In 2011, Kabang, then aged two and pregnant, became a hero in the Philippines after running in front of a motorcycle in what her owner said was a deliberate act to save her daughter and niece who were crossing a busy road.
