Homicide raps filed
vs. fake dentist

A complaint for homicide and violation of the Philippine Dental Act of 2007 was filed yesterday against a man practicing dentistry without a license, who allegedly caused the death of a 28-year-old resident of Manapla town in Negros Occidental,  by extracting five of his teeth at the same time.

The complaint was filed before the Negros Occidental Provincial Prosecutor’s Office at the Bacolod Hall of Justice against Diosdado Salas Mahilum of Barangay Punta Mesa, Manapla, for the death of Jerry Deocampo Aguirre on Aug. 19, 2014, at the rented house of his sister in Barangay 2-A, Manapla.

Violeta Aquirre, mother of the victim, said in her complaint affidavit that Mahilum, who is not a licensed dentist, extracted five of her son’s teeth at the same time on Aug. 1, 2014, causing his death 18 days later, from septic embolism secondary to dental foci.moremoremore

Dumaguete Comelec notes
low SK registration turnout


A reduction in the number of Sangguniang Kabataan registrants is seen in Dumaguete, with only a little more than 600 new ones being added to the previous list.

Before the 10-day registration period that ended September 29, there were 2,367 registered SK voters but more than 1,045 were deleted having reached, or reaching the age of 18 on or before the election on February 21, 2015.

There are now 1,322 in the list with ages 15 to 17 years, plus the new registrants of about 600, most of whom are from high schools in Dumaguete.  The number could be lower when hearings start. moremoremore
