Police nab Bayan
secretary general

The secretary general of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN)-Negros was arrested for maltreatment charges a few minutes after leaving the courtroom of Branch 48 at the Hall of Justice in Brgy. 9, Bacolod City, yesterday

Christian Tuayon, 27, of Brgy. Purisima in Manapla town, Negros Occidental, was nabbed on the strength of a bench warrant issued by Branch 1 presiding judge Jose Paolo Ariola of the Municipal Trial Court in Cities, on Jan. 29, 2014, records show.

Operatives of the Police Station 2 and the Bacolod Public Safety Company, checked the warrant at the MTCC Branch 1, and after verifying that it was still serviceable, served it to Tuayon, at about 8:30 a.m. yesterday, Senior Insp. Jovil Sedel, Station 2 chief said. moremoremore

Reorg at Capitol
hits another snag


The approval on second reading of a proposed ordinance that calls for the reorganization of Capitol employees, by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, again hit a snag, this time because of differing documents presented on the number of created and abolished positions at the Negros Occidental provincial government.

Last week, the SP also deferred action on the ordinance due to the delayed submission of documents to board members.

Vice Governor Jose Eugenio Jose Lacson, who presided over the SP regular session, said yesterday that they were given a copy last week by Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado that showed that there will be an increase of P67 million in annual salaries, under the proposed reorganization.moremoremore

Monico not sure on travel,
says no arraignment yet


Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella yesterday said he has not yet decided whether to travel abroad or not, so the arraignment set by the Sandiganbayan in the case filed against him involving the purchase of overpriced Information Technology package is not going to happen.

This was after the Court resolved to grant his “Motion for Leave of Court to Travel Abroad” dated March 11, subject to several conditions, among them that he will allow himself to be conditionally arraigned on March 25.

Puentevella said the arraignment will only be held if one decides to travel. moremoremore
