Brgy captain dismissed
for grave misconduct


The Office of the Ombudsman-Visayas has dismissed a barangay captain of Sta. Catalina town in Negros Oriental for grave misconduct, and the decision took effect four days before his term ends on Saturday.

In his decision dated August 29, 2013, Deputy Ombudsman for the Visayas Pelagio Apostol approved the dismissal from the service of Manalongon Brgy. Captain Eligio “Jun” Monte de Ramos.

The Department of Interior and Local Government served the order to De Ramos Monday at his residence in Manalongon, and required him to vacate the office, clear himself from all monies, properties and responsibilities and turn these over to his successor.

240 barangay officials
to take oaths today

About 30 barangay captains and 210 kagawads of Dumaguete City will take their oaths of office today before Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria at the city high school gymnasium.

Provincial director Farah Gentuya of the Department of Interior and Local Government said all barangays officials should have taken their oaths before noon of Nov. 30, as this is a requirement before they can assume their posts.

Gentuya said the oaths can be taken before an administering officer, mayor, governor or judge.

BIR requires Pacquiao
to pay $50M tax

MANILA – Authorities demanded yesterday that boxing great Manny Pacquiao pay a P2.2 billion tax bill or risk having assets seized, but the national hero vowed to take the fight to court.

The battle between one of the best boxers in history and the taxman has shocked his army of fans in the Philippines, emerging just days after a comeback win in the ring was hailed as a moment of hope amid the aftermath of a deadly typhoon.

Pacquiao disclosed Tuesday that the Bureau of Internal Revenue wanted P2.2 billion for alleged unpaid taxes in 2008 and 2009, when he was at the peak of his career and one of the world's highest-earning athletes.
