Murcia mayor, others
submit to drug tests
Montelibano insists on ouster of 2 priests

Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano submitted himself to a drug test yesterday and ordered all employees and officials of the town to do the same.

Montelibano said this is to belie the allegations of Murcia parish priest Greg Patiño and Parochial Vicar Agustin Hinayan that illegal drug use is rampant among employees of the town.

He said the results of the drug tests will be released by a private laboratory within the week, and those found positive will either be sent to a rehabilitation center, or will be terminated from services.moremoremore

There were 21 new HIV-AIDS patients recorded at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City this year, but the figure could only be half of the total number of cases in Negros Occidental,  Dr. Enrique Grajales said yesterday.

All of the 21 new patients were male, he added.

Grajales, who heads the HIV-AIDS Core Team (HACT) of the CLMMRH, said he believes that there are others who have HIV-AIDS from the province who may have sought  medical assistance elsewhere.moremoremore
