TRO 13 minutes late
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The Board of Directors of the Bacolod City Water District elected yesterday director Ma. Aida Torre as its chairman, replacing Lawrence Villanueva whose term expired on Dec. 31, 2014.
Thirteen minutes later, the Baciwa Board received a 72-hour restraining order from the Regional Trial Court Branch 49, enjoining David Villanueva, Torre and Cecilia Henares from holding a Board meeting.
The Court has scheduled a hearing today on the petition for mandamus and prohibition with prayer for issuance of temporary restraining order filed by Lawrence Villanueva against Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella and David Villanueva, to prevent the latter from sitting on the Baciwa Board by January 1.

NORSU situation worsens
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Charges may be filed against Don Vicente Real, suspended president of the Negros Oriental State University, for allegedly entering forcibly the main campus in Dumaguete City Saturday, in violation of the extension of his preventive suspension.
NORSU chief security officer, Rosalinda Abellon, a retired police officer, said in a press conference yesterday that an inventory is being conducted on documents allegedly intercepted by security personnel that were about to be loaded on the vehicle of Real on his way out of the campus.
Vicente dela Plaza, counsel of NORSU officer-in-charge Peter Dayot, said it is up to the school’s Board of Regents to decide whether to charge Real since the incident was blottered by the police and recorded in the university logbook.
