House body to push for
airport expansion

A delegation from the House of Representatives that inspected the Bacolod Silay Airport yesterday promised to push for the expansion of its terminal and the extension of its runway to accommodate bigger aircraft for international flights.

“We will strongly recommend this to the Department of Transportation and Communication, and will see that it is done,” Catanduanes Rep. Cesar Sarmiento, chairman of the House Congressional Oversight Committee on Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, and the House Committee on Transportation, said.

They will also push for Customs, Immigration and Quarantine personnel at the Bacolod Silay Airport for international flights, Sarmiento said.moremoremore

Bizman files libel
raps vs. Gamboa

Bacolod businessman Crispin Chua filed seven counts of libel against Councilor Wilson Gamboa Jr. before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office yesterday, for repeatedly calling him a “pathological and a congenital liar”, in several interviews involving the issue of the Bacolod Northbound terminal.

Chua also requested the Prosecutor to subpoena hard copies of all recorded interviews of Gamboa between January 17 to April 4, which are presently in the custody of DYRL, DYHB, DYAF and DYEZ, and to conduct a preliminary investigation as soon as possible.

He said all the public interviews of Gamboa accusing him of being a “pathological and a congenital liar,” and further explaining to the public these defamatory words to describe his character as a person, are grossly defamatory and/or libelous, or violative of Articles 353 and 355 of the Revised Penal Code.moremoremore
