RA 10654: mga pagbabago at pagsawalang bisa sa ilang probisyon sa Batas Pangingisda

BULA, CAMARINES SUR – Tuluyang naging batas ang RA 10654 noong Pebrero 27, 2015 makaraan ang isang buwan na hindi ito mapirmahan ni Pangulong Aquino. Ito ay sang-ayon sa Saligang Batas [Section 27 (1), Article VI], na naglalahad na kapag ang isang Presidente ay nabigong tanggihan (veto) ang isang panukalang batas sa loob ng 30 araw mula ng matanggap sa Kongreso, ito ay awtomatikong magiging batas. Ang RA 10654 ay bumago (amend) at nagpawalang bisa (repeal) sa ilang probisyon ng RA 8550, ang lumang batas pangingisda.


Isa sa mga ini-export ng Pilipinas ay ang mga yamang dagat gaya ng isda na iniluluwas pa sa European Union (EU) na binubuo ng 28 bansa, isa sa pinakamalaking kasosyo ng Pilipinas sa negosyo. Ang EU ay may pamamaraang tinatawag na Generalized System of Preference Plus (GSP+) na kung saan ang bansang benepisyaryo nito ay maaring magluwas ng humigit kumulang 6,274 na produkto na walang taripa sa loob ng 10 taon. Noong Pebrero 2014, ang Pilipinas ay humiling para mabigyan ng GSP+ na pansamantala namang nabigyan habang pinag-aaralan ang hiling.

Subalit noong Hunyo 2014, ang Pilipinas ay binigyan ng “yellow card” ng EU kahalintulad ng isang babala dahil sa diumano’y kakulangan ng batas ng bansa para makontra o masugpo ang “IUUF” o Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. Kapag ang Pilipinas ay nabigong sumunod sa alituntunin ng EU, hindi na pahihintulutan ang bansa na magluwas ng isda sa EU na magdudulot ng malaking kawalan sa pambansang ekonomiya.

Kaya ang Kongreso ay bumalangkas ng batas sa ilalim ng pinagsamang panukalang Senate Bill No. 2414 at House Bill No. 4536 na tuluyan nang naaprubahan ng dalawang kapulungan noong December 1, 2014. Subalit, mahigpit itong tinutulan ng organisasyon na kinabibilangan ng malalaking komersyal na mangisngisda sa kadahilanang ito raw bagong batas ay hindi makatarungan (oppressive and confiscatory) dahil kakaunti ang kanilang mahuhuling isda samantalang masyadong mataas ang penalidad ng paglabag dito.

Ang RA 10654 ay tuluyan nang naging batas sa pamamagitan ng [Section 27 (1), Article VI]. Hindi pinirmahan ni Pangulong Aquino ang panukalang batas subalit hindi niya rin ito ibinalik sa Kongreso o kinontra sa pamamagitan ng veto.

Napapaloob din sa na-amyendang batas ang pagkakaroon ng isang bagong kabanata (Administrative Adjudication) na nagbibigay kapangyarihan sa Kagawaran ng Pangisdaan at Yamang Dagat upang masiguro ang mabisang pagpapatupad ng mga regulatory measures. Tinatalakay din ang mga bagong konsepto kagaya ng community service para sa mga maliliit na mangingisdang lalabag sa batas na kabilang sa itinuturing na light offenses o iyong may mga kaparusahang magagaan lamang. Kasama din ang pagkakaroon ng awtomatikong pagtataas ng multa sa mga paglabag upang mahimok ang mga mangingisda na huwag gagawa ng mga bagay na labag sa batas.

Binabalangkas din sa RA 10654 ang iba pang konsepto kagaya ng Ecosystem-based Approach to Fisheries Management at Precautionary Principle, iba pang usaping internasyonal patungkol sa pagsasaayos ng yamang dagat at mga regulatory measures.
Ayon kay BFAR Bicol Director Dennis V. Del Socorro, “ipatutupad namin ang RA 10654 dahil ito ay akma at naayon sa panahon. Ito ay kabilang sa aming mga pananagutan na pangalagaan ang yamang dagat at ang mga sektor na umaasa dito. Hinihimok namin ang mga lokal na pamahalaan at iba pang kaisang mga ahensya at organisasyon na tulungan kami sa pagpapatupad ng na-amyendang batas pangisdaan”.

Ang maliliit na mangingisda ay may talang kabuuang 134,375 sa rehiyon ng Bikol kung saan 72% nito ay kalalakihan at 28% ay binubuo ng kababaihan. 62% naman ng nasa talaan ay direktang nangingisda (capture fishing) samantalang ang natitirang bahagi ay iyong mga nasa aquaculture, fish vending, gleaning at iba pang uri ng hanap-buhay sa pangisdaan.

Samantala, may kasalukuyang 122 lisensyadong commercial fishing vessels at gears ang kagawaran ng pangisdaan na pagmamay-ari ng 105 na operators. Ito ay nakatala sa Fishing Vessel E-Licensing System (FeLiS). Isang paraang “on-line” ng ahensya sa buong bansa na layong mapabuti ang sistema ng pagrerehistro at mapaiksi ang oras at gastos ng pagtatala.

Ang representasyon ng komersyal na sector ay isinaalang-alang sa pagbubuo ng Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) ng RA 10654 upang lubos silang mabigyan ng pagkakataong maipahayag ang kanilang saloobin sa na-amyendang batas. Sa Kasalukuyan ang IRR ay tinatayang matatapos s buwan ng Setyembre, anim na buwan matapos itong maipasa bilang isang batas upang lubusan na itong maisakatuparan.

(Ang pahayag na ito ay sa wikang Filipino sa pakikiisa ng Kagawaran ng Yamang Dagat at Pangisdaan sa Pagdiriwang ng Buwan ng Wika.)

EDUCATION | DepEd-Bicol echoes nationwide campaign for lighting up of schools

LEGAZPI CITY—While it is fortunate that almost all of Bicol’s 3,471 barangays have already been energized, providing public schools in these locations access to electricity, the regional office here of the Department of Education (DepEd) is echoing the agency’s nationwide call for solutions to still un-energized school and homes.


The campaign, dubbed as LightEd PH which was recently launched in Manila, seeks to expand DepEd’s commitment to learners in ensuring that school and home environments are conducive to learning, DepEd Regional Director Ramon Fiel Abcede here said.

He said the campaign aims to provide solutions to schools and homes that have no power through conventional and alternative sources of energy.

Abcede quoted Education Secretary Armin Luistro as saying during the launching rites that “light makes vision possible. In the realm of education, let us be the light that will help our children realize their vision for themselves, their families, and our country.”

Hence, Abcede said, everyone is enjoined to be part of this LightEd PH campaign to bring light to those who need it and to help in extending the hours of quality learning so that darkness will not hinder Filipino children from getting the education they deserve.

DepEd records show that as of School Year 2013-2014, there are 5,954 schools in the Philippines that are either un-energized or are in remote and off-grid areas, where at least 1.1 million students are deprived of unlimited access to technology, enhanced instructional methods, and more engaging learning activities.

The health of these students is also at risk from using kerosene lamps that emit harmful fumes, which is the only means for them to study at night, according to DepEd Undersecretary for Partnership and External Linkages Mario Deriquito.

Under LightEd PH, the DepEd is launching “One Child, One Lamp”, a campaign that will be implemented in partnership with Children’s Hour and Philippine Business for Social Progress to raise funds for solar lamps for distribution to students in off-grid public schools.

Deriquito said students in off-grid barangays have limited time to study at night so that providing them electricity or solar lamps will help them extend their study time, thus, increasing the chance to improve their academic performances.

Abcede said DepEd has partnered with Global Peace Foundation, Thrive Solar Energy Philippines, Stiftung Solarenergie, and other organizations to provide mini-solar LED lamps that can be used for up to ten hours after three to four hours of charging during the day.

At Php400 each, these solar lamps are also water and shock-resistant, produce white light that is brighter than that of a kerosene lamp, and do not emit harmful fumes, allowing the learners to continue their studies at night.

Once they reach the beneficiary schools, the solar lamps will be lent to students in a manner similar to that of lending library books, in order to ensure their proper usage and maintenance, Abcede said.

The public is encouraged to partner with DepEd to make this possible either through funding or donations to acquire the solar lamps, logistical assistance to distribute the lamps to the different sites, volunteering to train beneficiary schools in the usage and maintenance of the solar lamps, or spreading awareness on the campaign to increase public support.

Interested donors may donate or give a solar lamp to one child or donate at least one hour’s worth of their salaries through Children’s Hour Philippines.

A company can donate an equivalent amount to match employees’ donations, or the equivalent profits or earnings of one hour of business or trade, or donations in kind.

Company donors may also take part through the Adopt-A-School Program.

Moreover, in collaboration with the Department of Energy and private power or energy companies, DepEd will furnish off-grid schools with solar energy sets and solar panels that will serve as a stand-alone and self-sustaining technology system to power the school.

For on-grid schools that continue to be un-energized, DepEd is collaborating with the National Electrification Administration to encourage local electric cooperatives to extend power lines to the service drop near the schools’ premises.

Once energized, the schools will be provided by DepEd with information and communication technology packages, including computers, laptops, speakers, and projectors, Abcede said.

Insofar as Bicol is concerned, on the other hand, a report of the regional office here of the National Economic Development Authority states that of the 3,471 barangays of the region, 3,410 have already been energized as of 2013, making the DepEd regional office confident that all local public schools and most homes are already provided with electricity.

But just the same, the DepEd-Bicol is asking Bicolanos to support the LightEd PH campaign for the sake of those schoolchildren in other areas of the country that are less fortunate in having no electricity yet, Abcede added. --by Danny O. Calleja (PNA)

DOF shames Naga, Sorsogon, Ligao, CSur, CNorte, for non-compliance with requirement



NAGA CITY—The Department of Finance named Naga City, Sorsogon City, Masbate City, Ligao City, Masbate Province, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur in its shame campaign of cities and provinces that failed to submit or submitted late their required electronic Statement of Receipts and Expenditures (eSRE) for the second quarter of 2015.

The eSRE is the basic financial report prescribed by the Bureau of Local Government Finance to monitor the local government units' performance.

"How much incomes were raised by the cities and provinces during the second quarter this year? How were these funds utilized? You'll never know unless you demand for reports," reads the DOF's LGU Tax Watch Number 15 infographic released Wednesday, August 12.

"Make your local treasurers accountable," it urged.

Sorsogon City and Masbate City are in the list with no second quarter FY 2015 electronic Statement of Receipts and Expenditures (eSRE) reports.

Meanwhile, Naga City and Ligao City are among those cities which submitted their report late.

Masbate Province, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur are also mentioned among the provinces which submitted late eSRE reports.

Said cities and provinces failed to meet the July 10 deadline set by the DOF for shifting to the electronic reporting system.

The reporting system, the DOF said in its primer, is in line with the government's objective of increasing transparency and accountablity in the local government units.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago.

BUSINESS | Ayala’s earnings up 6% to ₱10.4 billion in the first half

Ayala Corporation’s net income rose 6 percent to ₱10.4 billion in the first half of the year driven by the double-digit growth in its telecom, real estate, banking, and electronics businesses, and boosted by the positive performance of its power generation unit.


 Excluding the previous year’s divestment gains from the sale of Stream Global Services, Ayala’s business process outsourcing unit, Ayala’s net income in the first semester grew 31 percent.

Ayala’s solid performance in the first half of the year was a result of strong equity earnings contribution from its business units, which reached ₱13.2 billion, up 2 percent from a year ago. Without the divestment gains, equity earnings expanded 20 percent in the first half of the year.

The strong double-digit growth in the equity earnings of Globe Telecom, Ayala Land, Bank of the Philippine Islands, and Integrated Microelectronics combined with the positive contribution from AC Energy Holdings drove Ayala’s equity earnings during the period.

“Our earnings continue to grow at a strong pace in step with the overall performance of our business units. As demand drivers remain upbeat, and as our investments in power come onstream, we believe this strong growth will continue throughout the year,” Ayala president and chief operating officer Fernando Zobel de Ayala said.

“In addition, as our core businesses grow, we continue to seek new areas to invest in. We are developing new platforms in the healthcare and education spaces. We believe these two sectors present excellent opportunities for growth and scale,” Mr. Zobel added.


Real Estate

Ayala Land’s net income expanded 19 percent to ₱8.4 billion, lifted by the upbeat performance of its property development and commercial leasing operations. In property development, residential revenues grew 11 percent on new bookings and project completion while office sales expanded nearly twofold on the back of new launches from its upscale brand Alveo.

In commercial leasing, shopping center revenues went up 9 percent owing to higher occupancy and average rentals, while office leasing revenues expanded 16 percent due to the contribution of newly opened offices and the stronger performance of its existing offices. Revenues from hotels and resorts improved by 8 percent on higher occupancy.

Ayala Land launched 21 residential projects, the Ayala Triangle Gardens mixed-use development and other leasing projects worth ₱81 billion in the first semester. In addition, Ayala Land and Puregold Price Club recently opened its first supermarket venture named “Merkado” in UP Town Center.

Banking

As its core banking business continued to drive growth, net earnings of the Bank of the Philippine Islands expanded 16 percent to ₱9.3 billion. Total revenues improved 12 percent to ₱29 billion on higher net interest income and non-interest income. Net interest income grew 12 percent to ₱19 billion owing to a 15 percent-expansion in average assets.  Non-interest income was up 12 percent to ₱10 billion as a result of higher income from securities trading, fees and commissions, and insurance business.

The bank’s operating expenses grew 7.6 percent year-on-year resulting in a cost-to-income ratio of 51.9 percent.

The  bank's  total  assets  stood  at ₱1.4 trillion at the end of the first half,  a  9.7  percent-increase  from  the  previous year.   Deposit level increased 12 percent to P1.2 trillion while total loan portfolio grew 9 percent year-on-year.  Asset quality remains strong, with a gross 90-day non-performing loan ratio of 1.77 percent, lower than last year’s 1.85 percent.  Loan loss cover was maintained at 108 percent.

Consolidated CET 1 Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) was 14.3 percent while total CAR was 15.2 percent in the first semester.


Telecom

Globe Telecom registered a net income of ₱8.7 billion, up 27 percent year-on-year, bolstered by increased demand for data connectivity across the mobile, fixed line, and broadband segments.

Service revenues rose 13 percent to ₱53.8 billion with the highest growth coming from mobile browsing and other data revenues, jumping 53 percent to ₱9.5 billion. Broadband revenues expanded 30 percent to ₱7.6 billion, while fixed line data revenues surged 20 percent to ₱3.1 billion. Combined, all these comprise 38 percent of Globe’s total revenues during the period. Globe’s mobile and fixed line voice likewise improved, growing 10 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Its mobile subscriber base reached 48.4 million, 13 percent higher year-on-year. Similarly, Globe’s broadband subscriber base grew 55 percent to 3.5 million in the first semester of the year.

The solid revenue growth balanced out the higher subscriber and network-driven costs, with earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) expanding 19 percent to ₱22.7 billion.

Following the approval of the National Telecommunications Commission, Globe converted $115 million of debt in Bayan Telecommunications into equity, effectively securing control of Bayantel. Subsequently, Globe acquired the stake held by the Lopez group in Bayantel, hiking up its stake in the company to over 98 percent.

Water Infrastructure

Manila Water’s net income dipped 4 percent from a year ago to ₱3 billion owing to higher operating expenses primarily from catch-up rental costs incurred by the East Zone concession during the period. This resulted in a 5 percent decline in the net profits of the East Zone concession to ₱2.6 billion despite a 2 percent-growth in billed volume. Excluding the extraordinary rental expense, Manila Water’s net income ended flat for the first semester.

Total billed volume grew 2 percent to 340 million cubic meters supported by billed volume growth outside the East Zone. Billed volume from Laguna Water surged 26 percent; Clark Water expanded 19 percent, while Boracay Water and Kenh Dong Water in Vietnam posted single-digit growth rates. Meanwhile, Cebu Manila Water Development started operations in January this year.

Manila Water continues to develop its footprint outside the East Zone concession. It expanded its Laguna Water operations to cover the entire province of Laguna with the addition of used water services in the concession. Moreover, Manila Water was awarded a 15-year bulk water supply contract by the Tagum City Water District.

Electronics Manufacturing

Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. recorded a net income of $15.2 million, 35 percent higher from the previous year as operational improvements, continued focus on higher-margin products, and cost saving measures increased profitability.

Revenues slightly declined by 3 percent to $416.3 million on the back of a weakness in the euro coupled with a slowdown in demand in the computing sector. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, revenues rose 2.4 percent during the period.

Power Generation and Transport Infrastructure

As its power generating assets come online, AC Energy Holdings Inc. registered a net income in the first half of the year of ₱198 million. This was driven by the contributions from its two wind farms, North Luzon Renewable Energy Corporation and NorthWind both in Ilocos Norte; and two coal plants, South Luzon Thermal Energy Corporation in Batangas, and GNPower Mariveles Coal Plant in Bataan.

AC Energy has assembled over 700 megawatts of attributable generating capacity across various assets. It continues to work on a pipeline of power projects to meet its goal of building around 1,000 MW in generating capacity over the next few years. Over the past three years, Ayala has committed over US$700 million in equity in developing various power generating projects.

In transport infrastructure, Ayala formally opened the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX) on July 24, 2015. Ayala is the concessionaire of MCX, a 4-kilometer tollroad connecting the Daang Hari Road with the South Luzon Expressway.

 AF Payments Inc., a joint venture between the Ayala and First Pacific groups, has begun its roll out of the automated fare collection system through the Beep contactless cards. Implementation has started in LRT line 2, and is expected to be completed across all LRT and MRT lines within the next few months.

 Balance Sheet

Ayala maintains a healthy balance sheet. As of June 30, 2015, parent company cash reached ₱38 billion, putting its net debt to equity ratio at 0.23 to 1 at the parent level, and 0.81 to 1 at the consolidated level.

'Save and Earn' invest scam victims seek help

NAGA CITY—The allure of easy money proved too irresistible for some Nagueños, who have fallen prey to an allegedly fraudulent investment scam operating via social networking website Facebook.



Over the weekend, BICOL STANDARD spoke to one of those who were allegedly duped by said alleged scam called "Save and Earn."

Jessa (not her real name) divulged that an online paluwagan scheme which was launched on Facebook earlier this year enticed her and many other Naguenos with its promise of multiplying one’s invested money no less than ten times.

Heading the operation was the Cajot family, including Nancy D. Cajot, Clarence Lillian Cajot, and Jio Cajot, all residents of Phase II, Blk. 1, Lot 24, Villa Obiedo Subdivision, Cararayan, this city.

Scheme

Jessa said you could become a member by meeting with Nancy Cajot at E-Mall, SM City Naga,  remittance centers, or at the Cajot’s Villa Obiedo home.

Members were encouraged to invest money which would entitle them to what were called slots. Each slot costs P100, which would be converted into P1,000 within just 15 days under the “Save and Earn” scheme.

After joining in late July, Jessa patiently waited for her pay-out. A surprise, instead of cash, however, greeted her on the day of the supposed pay-out.

“Pumunta ako sa bahay ng mga Cajot for my pay-out dahil may usapan na kami ni Nancy Cajot pero ang naabutan ko ay si Clarence “Cla” Lillian. Sabi niya wala daw si Nancy at hindi uuwi. Nagtaka na ako, kasi wala nang pay-out at bigla nagbago na ang bilang ng araw ng pay-out. Sabi ni Cla Cajot, 25 to 30 days na raw ang first pay-out,” she said.

When she checked the “Save and Earn” social media group, Jessa said the members were already in a heated discussion.

It turned out that other members were having problems with “Save and Earn,” as well.

“Nagkaroon ng group chat,” Jessa said, “at nalaman ko na marami na palang member ang hindi nakaka-pay-out at maraming member ang sumali na malaki ang pay-in dahil sa dami ng invites galing sa Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao. Merong taga-Singapore, HongKong, Canada, etc.”

What Nancy allegedly did next sounded off alarm bells.

“Nagpost si Nancy na deficit ang fund ng 10 million,” Jessa recalled.

“Lalong nagkagulo ang mga members hanggang sa nagpameeting siya [Nancy] at hindi dumating, kaya nagpatawag ng pulis ang isang member at nagpa-blotter,” she added.

Aid

On August 10, eleven members of "Save and Earn" went to the Naga City Police Office to have it put on record that they arranged to meet with Nancy Cajot to retrieve their money, but she did not show up.

On Tuesday, August 11, several members went to the local police to air their gripes.

Among them were Lyzle Movilla y Felices, and Ruperto Movilla y Cervantes, both residents of Sampaloc, Apalit, Pampanga. The Movillas said they were coordinators of the Apalit, Pampanga Group of “Save and Earn.”

In the record, they stated that Nancy Cajot promised to return their capital investment of P4090.00 late in the afternoon of August 11. She, however, failed to show up, and her whereabouts could not be located.

In another record, Lennie Modino y Caballero, 29, of Tabuco, this city, said that he arranged to meet with Nancy Cajot at a restaurant along Elias Angeles St., but Cajot again did not appear.

Similar complaints flood Naga City Facebook groups at present, where Save and Earn members are appealing for help to locate the Cajot family.

The members said that the Cajots have deactivated their Facebook accounts.

As of press time, a complaint is yet to be filed by the alleged victims.

It would be recalled that around a week ago, locals who were duped by a similar fraudulent investment scheme by a company called One Dream Global Marketing filed complaints at the National Bureau of Investigation Office in Naga City.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
