Airport man’s offer of cash
assistance refused – lawyer

The family of the 64-year-old Bacolod resident, who tripped over two bags of another passenger at the pre departure area of the Bacolod Silay Airport in Silay City and suffered serious injuries, refused to accept the initial financial assistance offered by the owner of the bags.

Rayfrando Diaz II yesterday said that, as a sign of good will, his client offered the family of Rosario Hofileña P120,000 but they were asking for a bigger amount, considering that her medical expenses and rehabilitation will run up to five years. He said they were not informed of the expenses incurred by the victim.

Diaz said he will meet with Renecito Novero, the lawyer of the victim, on Monday to find a win-win solution. His client is willing to provide the victim assistance, he said.moremoremore

Female inmates seek
ouster of 5 jail guards

Detainees in the Female Dormitory of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in Barangay Bajumpandan, Dumaguete City, signed a petition calling for the ouster of three male and two female jail guards, allegedly for abusive acts, and anomalous deeds and practices that have been going on for so long now.

The handwritten letter signed by 35 female detainees, was addressed to the BJMP, and other concerned agencies, and pleaded for pity and compassion and an investigation into their status inside the district jail female dorm.

The inmates claimed the guards were into immoral acts, like having illicit affairs with inmates resulting to pregnancy, borrowing money to pay for the tuition of their children and debts, denying entry of visitors, maltreating inmates seeking health assistance, and making inmates pay for expenses, like major repairs of the jail facilities..moremoremore
