Court denies Lopezes
dumpsite TRO vs. city

The Municipal Trial Court in Cities denied the petition for temporary restraining order sought by the Dynasty Agricultural Corp. in the civil case it filed against the City of Bacolod represented by Mayor Monico Puentevella involving the reopening of the sanitary landfill Brgy. Felisa, Bacolod City.

A case for forcible entry with prayer for TRO and injunction was filed by the corporation owned by the Lopez family to preserve the status and prevent the city from dumping waste matter on the sanitary landfill.

In his order dated March 19, MTCC Judge Remegio Rojo reminded both the DAC and the city that the stakeholders in the outcome of this case are not just themselves, but all the residents of the City of Bacolod.moremoremore

Cop found positive for drugs

The policeman and a man nabbed in a buy-bust operation at Lopez Jaena Street in Brgy. 20, Bacolod City, Wednesday, both tested positive for shabu.

Supt. Jefferson Descallar, commander of the City Special Operations Task Group, said yesterday that Police Officer 3 Leri Lumawag, 37, of Candoni, and Rogelio Maalat, 42, of Hinigaran town, both in Negros Occidental, yielded positive for methamphetamine hydrochloride, or shabu, in the tests conducted on them Thursday.

Descallar said charges were filed against Lumawag, Maalat and two others, identified as Erwin Cabugwason and Max Jose Mercurio, who evaded arrest on Thursday.

More CDOs to be
served  in SBenedicto


Fourteen more Cease-and-Desist Orders against occupants of the Northern Negros Natural Park in Salvador Benedicto town will be issued soon, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Andres Untal said yesterday.

The PENRO had earlier issued 40 CDOs against other occupants of the park. Among them were mayors Jose Max Ortiz of Salvador Benedicto and Andrew Montelibano of Murcia, some doctors and businessmen.

The CDOs are being issued to prevent further constructions in the area where numerous vacation houses have already been built, Untal said.moremoremore
