Caramoan massacre suspects charged with murder; DOJ to include Tria III

CARAMOAN, Camarines Sur—“I am the happiest woman in the world,” exclaimed Mercy Sueno, Punong Barangay of Gata, this town, when she learned that the 21 suspects in the infamous Caramoan massare were recommended for indictment by the Department of Justice.

In an exclusive interview by BICOL STANDARD, Sueno said that she is a little bit relieved by the pains she suffered due the murder of at least four of her constituents.

The Special Panel of Prosecutors issued a resolution that found probable cause against the Sagip Kalikasan Task Force (SKTF) for the crime of murder that led to the death of four gold panners at Sitio Campo, Barangay Gata.

The victims in the case were Julio Labiano, Rene Labiano, Salem Virtuz and Jesse Brondia.
Meanwhile, charged with murder are Jose Breso, Sevillano Espares, Jr., Francisco “Iko” Tria III, and eighteen John Does.

The investigators gave weight to the testimonies of the eyewitness and several corroborating witnesses, plus the seven others, who pinpointed to the abovementioned suspects as the alleged perpetrators of the crime.

In the same interview, Sueno said that at around 11:30 a.m. on the day the crime was committed, she had a heated altercation with Tria III on the activities of SKTF.

She said that Tria III even threatened her that he will be back together with his men to enforce what they want.

Sueno said that this incident with Tria III was witnessed by the residents of Gata. One the evening of the same day (March 22, 2014), the four men were massacred.

The Department of Justice’s panel of  investigators observed that the perpetration of the crime, Breso Espares, Jr. together with eighteen other unidentified suspects ensured that they would not be identified.

The Special Panel of Prosecutors, however, recommended the dismissal of the case against Angelo Refran, Luis Palaganas, Saetiel Pielago, Johan Bolima and Florencio Vargas, whose names were originally included in the complaint.

The records of the case show that the said respondents (Refran, Palaganas, Pielago, Bolima and Vargas) did not directly participate in the killing of the victims. Neither were they found to have conspired, concurred in, or participated towards the unified purpose of respondents Tria III, Breso and Espares in the killing of the victims.

The criminal information for murder has been filed against Breso and Espares.

As far as Tria III is concerned, the DOJ said it will amend the information to include him in the charge for murder.

The DOJ Central Office, it would be recalled, took over the Caramoan massacre investigation in September 2014.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.

NEDA to endorse P3.5-B Naga City Airport Dev’t

NAGA CITY—A 3.58-billion peso redesign project of the Naga Airport in Pili, Camarines Sur may soon be underway, Transportation and Communications Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya announced at a multi-sectoral forum during his visit here on Tuesday.

Transportation and Communications Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya

Abaya said the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board, many of whom were also in the city with Abaya for Jesse Robredo’s death anniversary, will likely give the project the green light.

The redesign, the Secretary explained, will involve the construction of a two-kilometer runway which larger aircraft may use.

At present, the 1.4-kilometer runway of the Naga Airport is unable to accommodate bigger planes as it is too short.

Larger aircraft, such as the Airbus A320, need to use the Legazpi City airport, instead, causing inconvenience to many passengers.

Abaya said the redesign project may also reduce the air fare.

Around a year ago, the Regional Development Council (RDC) recommended the reorientation and modernization of the Naga Airport as a priority project.

The NEDA Regional Office also expressed strong support for the project.

“[The Naga Airport Development Project] will contribute to the attainment of the sector outcome of reliable infrastructure facilities and services used by the population. The sector outcome will lead to the attainment of the regional development outcome of majority of the population, especially the poor and marginalized, enjoy the benefits of social development and economic growth. The project will thus contribute in attaining the vision of Bicol as the most livable region in the country,” the regional office said in a news release last year.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM

BARCELONA, Sorsogon—A task force to investigate on the murder of radio broadcaster and activist Teodoro "Todoy" Escanilla has been created by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of the Sorsogon police.

Sixty-three-year-old Escanilla, a resident of Barangay Tagdon, Barcelona, Sorsogon, was shot inside his home at around 11:45 p.m. on August 19.

He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital, after suffering several gunshot wounds.

Escanilla used to host a radio program called Pamana ng Lahi every Sunday on radio station DZMS.

His last topic, the police said, was the alleged summary execution of three suspected rebels at Irosin, Sorsogon in July 2015.

He was also a spokesman of group Karapatan-Bicol and a chairman of Anakpawis Sorsogon.

Yesterday, Malacanang condemned the killing of Escanilla.

"Tutugisin ang mga pinaghihinalang salarin at papanagutin," Presidential Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a statement.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.


Soldiers, cops to get full medical assistance

MANILA—Rep. Scott Davies S. Lanete of the third district of Masbate has authored a bill granting full medical assistance to wounded soldiers and policemen while on duty.
Rep. Lanete
In filing House Bill 5933, Lanete said the death of the fallen 44 and the wounding of other PNP Special Action Force (SAF) members raised awareness on the risks of uniformed men face while fulfilling their duty.

Lanete said the Mamasapano incident revealed the real situation of the soldiers and policemen with regard the benefits they are receiving.

According to Lanete, the members of the PNP stationed in dangerous zones only receive a hazard pay of P240 per month and a combat pay of P340 a month while soldiers who assigned to dangerous areas received a combat of only P240 per month.

“Although laws are already in place to provide financial assistance to wounded uniformed men while on duty, these laws are not adequate to help and alleviate their physical, mental, psychological and financial sufferings,” Lanete said.

Under the proposed “Medical Combat Pay Act,” the medical assistance shall cover all expenses necessary to the immediate care and recovery of the wounded uniformed men including their post-care and recovery.

All wounded policemen and soldiers shall be entitled to the medical combat pay the moment they are admitted in a hospital or medical clinic.

Likewise, they are entitled to continuing medical assistance until such time a qualified physician declares them fully recovered, both physically and psychologically. (Congress)

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Releasing prisoners in non-bailable crimes: the Enrile precedent

by Atty. Manuel J. Laserna Jr.
Laserna Cueva-Mercader Law Offices

It is claimed that the courts have the discretion to grant bail in non-bailable offenses.

Note, though, that it’s Congress, exercising its constitutional power to legislate, that determines which crimes are bailable and non-bailable.

If the law is clear, it needs only to be applied, not interpreted, more so when the law sets no exceptions.

May the SC judicially legislate and impose its own exceptions when a penal law is clear as to its scope and application?

Is the matter of bail a simple Remedial Law procedure that is reserved only to the Judiciary to determine?

As we consider the pro hac vice bail ruling of the SC in the case Enrile, let’s not forget the thousands of old, sick, mentally disturbed and hopeless inmates languishing in our hellish prisons nationwide.

If we follow the SC’s application of humanitarianism in the case of Enrile, shouldn’t the Judiciary now take the proactive stance of studying the release of these suffering and dying inmates?

That is, if the SC believes that discrimination has no place in our justice system.

P171-B South Rail Line to boost Bicol tourism

LEGAZPI CITY—Albay Gov. Joey Salceda has expressed confidence the Php 171-billion South Rail Line (SRL) of the North-South Railways system, which construction starts next year under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme, will further boost Bicol’s tourism by as much as 30 percent.
PNR in BicolPhoto by Oscar Esmenda/BICOLSTANDARD.COM
The expected boost forms part of the predicted 24 percent economic returns the new railways system will bring to the countryside when fully operationalized.

The 653-kilometer railways project gained traction in the past four years with Salceda’s vigorous push with the PPP Center, the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), the Philippine National Railways and the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA).

DOTC recently started the bid process for the project, the government’s single biggest undertaking so far under the PPP. In its Aug. 11 advisory to prospective bidders, DOTC has set the pre-qualification conference on Aug. 20 and submission of qualification documents on Oct. 15.

Qualified bidders will be notified on Oct. 30 and DOTC will release the bid documents and draft concession agreement on Nov. 6. A pre-bid conference is set Nov. 20 this year, and submissions on March 28. The notice of award will be issued April 27, next year.

The winning bidder will “design, construct, install, commission, finance, operate, and maintain” the 56-km commuter rail from Tutuban to Calamba in Laguna, and the 478-km long-haul rail from Calamba City to Legazpi City, according to the PPP Center project brief. The long-haul line has two possible extensions -- a 58-km rail line from Calamba to Batangas City and a 117-km line from Legazpi to Matnog, Sorsogon.

Salceda, one of the most ardent proponents of the SRL, said the new railways project completes Albay’s multi-modal transport model -- air, sea, road and rails – and is expected to unlock the huge potentials of Bicol, particularly of Albay, Bicol’s regional center and hub.

“Tourism will receive the biggest boost from the new railways. It will increase tourist flow -- domestic tourism by 30% and foreign arrivals by 10% -- since a train ride from Manila to Legazpi is an attraction by itself,” he said.

This is specially so for Albay, Bicol’s tourism hub, considered among the fastest and hottest growing tourism destinations in the country with a 330,000 recorded foreign arrivals in 2013 from only 8,700 in 2006.

With a faster and more reliable land transport system, Salceda said, more tourists will come to enjoy Albay’s iconic sites and newly discovered ecotourism destinations which are presently selling like hotcakes. The new railways system involves seven train sets, 66 stations and 10 daily trips that will to ferry some 316,000 passengers per day, when it opens in 2020.

The project was proposed by the Bicol Regional Development Council (RDC) and endorsed by the Luzon Regional Development Committee (RDCom), which he chairs for nine and six years, respectively now. It was approved by the Cabinet last February 15, following three years of consultations with DOTC, NEDA, and the PPP Center.

It will reduce by half the present 12 hours Manila-Legazpi travel time and at the proposed P1,300 fare per passenger, it will provide reliable and comfortable transport system for commuters between Manila and Bicol, particularly students, workers, traders and vacationists.

Aside from travel convenience, Salceda said the project will also boost and expand tourism attractions with the fascinating rural and green Bicol scenery starting from Sipocot town in Camarines Sur, and in Naga City where Mayon starts to become visible, up to Albay where the volcano’s majestic splendor grows even more enchanting.

“It will likewise expand trade and open more investment opportunities that will make Bicol’s agricultural and processed products more competitive in the markets of Divisoria, and in bringing in needed inputs to our industries, and basic commodities to our households,” he added.

The massive transport investment, he explained, “will shift the supply curve to the right and would, therefore, provide contestability of the transport markets going to Bicol and the countryside.” (PNA)

Reward offered for 'Pamana' killer

Last Thursday, Environment Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje announced that they are issuing a reward of P100,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Philippine eagle “Pamana.”

The entire DENR community was distraught over the killing of yet another Philippine eagle. This sets back government efforts to protect the critically endangered raptor.

Pamana, a three-year-old female Philippine eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), was found dead by PEF biologists and forest guards at the Mt. Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary (MHRWS) in Davao Oriental last Sunday. A puncture and metal fragment on her right breast indicated she had died of a gunshot wound.

Pamana’s death will not, however, prevent the government – through the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) – to pursue its captive breeding program to boost the population of the majestic Philippine national bird.

The Protected Area Management Board of MHRWS and the PEF are now conducting a full investigation on the incident.

Local residents are urged to help authorities track down the killers.

Protected under law

The Philippine eagle is protected under Republic Act No. 9147 or the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act. As such, anyone found guilty of killing wildlife species can be imprisoned from six to 12 years, with a fine ranging from P100,000 to P1 million.

Moreover, illegal hunting within the MHWRS, which is a protected area, is also punishable by a jail term of six years and a fine of up to P500,000.

Pamana was released within the MHRWS only on June 12. She was rehabilitated by the PEF after DENR personnel had rescued her from a gunshot wound three years ago.

Not the first time

On August 14, 2004, a decomposing body of a female Philippine eagle was found in Mt. Apo in Davao City. The raptor, which was among those monitored by the DENR and PEF for years, bore a gunshot wound, a crack at its keel bone.

The Philippine eagle, hailed the “world’s noblest flier” by former aviator Charles Lindbergh, is considered critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

There are an estimated 400 pairs remaining in the wild today.

Suspected DSWD fixer falls in entrapment op

LEGAZPI CITY—A suspected fixer was arrested in an entrapment operation by elements of the Legazpi City Police Station right at the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office at Buraguis here Tuesday.

DSWD Bicol Regional Director Arnel Garcia
The operation stemmed from a request of the Field Office, which sought the assistance of the police because of alleged illegal activities of fixers.

Yesterday afternoon, concerned clients of the DSWD worked with the police to hatch an entrapment operation that resulted to the arrest of suspect Leuilyn Flores.

Thirty-four-year-old Flores is a resident of Tagongtong, Legazpi City, the police said.

The aforementioned client, who hails from Homapon, Malinao, Albay, accompanied her niece to ask for burial assistance of the latter’s husband.

Flores allegedly approached the client with an intake sheet, in exchange of P500.00 once the client receives the cash assistence.

The DSWD reported that upon releasing the burial assistance money, the client met with the suspect, as instructed by the police.

The client handed marked money amounting to P500.00 to the suspect.

The police then arrested the suspect and recovered the marked money.

Said cash would be used as evidence against the suspect, the police said.

Following the arrest, DSWD Bicol warned the public to be vigilant against fixers who charge fees for obtaining queue numbers for medical and burial assistance at the department.

A statement furnished by the Field Office to BICOL STANDARD reads:

"[The] assistance is intended to help the persons in need and not to the ruthless people who take advantage to these vulnerable clients.

The agency would not tolerate any kind of irregularity and hope this also serves as a lesson to the public not to engage or transact with fixers.

The General Intake Sheet (GIS) is used in gathering information/data. The GIS serves as one of the basis for the assessment as to how much assistance to be extended to the client.

The field office releases 60 intake sheets for medical and burial clients’ every day. This is to ensure the fast, smooth, and organized processing of the assistance needed by the clients.

The clients will then be pre-screened by Crisis Intervention Section staff to check whether they brought the complete supporting documents for the assistance being requested.

Accordingly, the amount of financial assistance to be given to the clients shall be based on the assessment of the social worker.

Meanwhile, the requirements for medical /burial assistance include original and photo copy of medical abstract/medical Certificate with signature and license number of attending physician issued within three months, death certificate,original and photo copy of hospital bill or billing statement if hospitalized, doctor’s prescription, laboratory requests, original and photo copy of barangay certificate or residency/indigency, two photo copies of any vallid ID of the client.

Under the Protective Services Unit, the E-AICS (Expanded Aid for Individuals in Crisis Situation) provides medical, educational, burial and transportation assistance to persons/families in crisis situations, specifically those belonging to the informal sector and other poor, marginalized, vulnerable, and disadvantaged individuals."—BICOLSTANDARD.COM.

The typhoon east of extreme Northern Luzon (international name: "Goni") entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Tuesday noon and was renamed "Ineng," the ninth tropical cyclone to enter the country this year and the second for this month of August.

In an interview, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Manny Mendoza said typhoon "Ineng" was located based on all available data at 1,420 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan (18.3°N, 135.0°E) packed with maximum sustained winds of 170 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 205 kph.

He said the typhoon is forecast to move west-northwest at 20 kph.

The typhoon is not yet affecting the country, but will enhance the southwest monsoon or "hanging habagat" which will bring rains over the Visayas and Mindanao by Wednesday, Mendoza said.

He added that by Thursday until weekend, rains will be experienced in the western part of Northern, Central and Southern Luzon, including Metro Manila.

Mendoza said the typhoon has high chance to make landfall in extreme Northern Luzon or in the province of Batanes or in Calayan by Friday because of the presence of a high pressure area (HPA) that blocks its movement.

However, he noted that once the HPA recedes, it will not make any landfall as it will follow the track of typhoon "Hanna" which only enhanced the southwest monsoon.

He also said that by Thursday or Friday, the state weather bureau may raise public storm warning signals over the provinces of Northern Luzon as the typhoon moves closer to the area.

If it maintains its speed and movement, Mendoza said the typhoon is expected to exit the PAR by Saturday morning as it will recurve and head toward Japan.

He added that for the coming days, the agency will issue gale warning due to the typhoon-enhanced southwest monsoon as the fisherfolks are not safe to venture into the sea.

Meanwhile, Mendoza said the other typhoon with international name "Atsani" has a slim chance to enter the country as its track is moving toward Japan.

However, the agency continues to monitor it and once it enters the PAR, it will be locally named "Jenny." (PNA)

INSPIRING IDEA | Cam Norte’s Senior Supt. Fama launches V.I.P.S. in support of Oplan Lambat Sibat

DAET, Camarines Norte—An inspiring innovation in crime detection and prevention has been devised by the Camarines Norte Provincial Police Office, under the stewardship of Provincial Director Senior Supt. Harris Reyes Fama.

Camarines Norte Provincial Police Office Director Senior Supt. Harris Reyes Fama
Dubbed Visibility In Placard and Signboard (V.I.P.S.), Provincial Director Fama’s project involves the installation of signages, on which the cellphone numbers of the nearest police station or substation are indicated, in strategic areas such as schools, malls, markets, hospitals, terminals, barangay halls, tourist destinations, and other places of convergence.

“The commission of crimes, accidents, and other emergencies often happen in places where victims cannot immediately call for police assistance,” Senior Supt. Fama said in an interview with BICOL STANDARD.

“There is a need to address this problem. If these incidents will be reported on time then the police can act promptly and will be able to save lives and protect properties,” he added.

“It’s a way for the police to be omnipresent,” Fama explained, noting the problem of a limited number of police patrols in comparison with the number of streets and roads.

Likewise, the Provincial Director hopes it will deter malefactors from committing crimes, as ordinary members of the community may instantly report the incident to the police.

“Through V.I.P.S., the community will feel that the PNP is there to serve and protect them,” Fama said.

Positive feedback

V.I.P.S., Fama shared, has only been in operation for a few weeks. It was launched on July 31, 2015, during the culmination program of the 20th Police Community Relation Month Celebration.

Already, however, the project has earned praises from local leaders, the tri-media, as well as members of the community.

Fama, who went on local radio program Bag-ong Kasurog to promote the project, said he was overwhelmed with the amount of positive feedback that V.I.P.S. received.

“Local government units assured their support to the project and pledged to give additional funds for the creation of more signages and placards to be put up at all barangays and schools in their respective municipalities,” the provincial director said, beaming.

Municipal police stations in Camarines Norte are also showing strong support for the project, he said.

“Here in Camarines Norte, we are united against crime,” Fama remarked.

Lambat Sibat

V.I.P.S., Fama said, was conceptualized in support of the Philippine National Police’s Oplan Lambat Sibat, an idea proposed by Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas.

Oplan Lambat Sibat combats crimes with a deliberate, programmatic and systematic approach, with the goal of enhancing the peace and order situation throughout the country.

In line with such objective, Fama also envisions a safer Camarines Norte, a goal which he hopes that locals also share.

With V.I.P.S., Fama is empowering everyone to share in the responsibility of ensuring peace and order in the community.

“Peace and order,” he concluded, “should not be the sole responsibility of the police. All members of the community must be proactive and help in crime detection and prevention, if we genuinely aspire to have a safe and crime-free society.”—BICOLSTA NDARD.COM

Ombudsman OKs indictment vs Gache, et al

TALISAY, Camarines Norte – Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales has recommended the indictment of former town mayor and now Board Member Rodolfo V. Gache, along with town officials Adela S. Adlawan, Cecilio Q. Noora, Jr., Raul R. Rayos, Miriam M. Hernandez, Ireneo P. Zabala, Romeo G. Maranan, and Felicisima M. Velasco.

Former Mayor and now Board Member Rodolfo V. Gache
Alex Rivera, and Victoria R. Ajero, private respondents, both representing the Board of Directors of Hexaphil Agriventures, Inc., (Hexaphil) were also charged for violation of Section 3 (e) of Republic Act 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act) in a resolution signed July 13.

The Ombudsman also approved the filing of two counts of Malversation of Public Funds or Property, defined and penalized under Article 217 of the Revised Penal Code, against the above named persons.


This case stemmed from a complaint filed by Task Force Abono of the Field Investigation Office of the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with the alleged P728-million Department of Agriculture (DA) Fund Scam.

From the said amount, P291,200,000.00 was provided for the implementation of the Farm Inputs and Farm Implements Program (FIFIP) of the DA.

One of the beneficiaries of this project was the municipality of Talisay, Camarines Norte. Through the initiative of Rep. Renato J. Unico, Jr., of the lone congressional district of Camarines Norte, DA Regional Field Unit V, transferred money to the municipality.

DA-RFU V then entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with Congressman Unico and Mayor Gache. Under the said MOA, DA- RFU V shall release the P3,000,000.00 fund to the Municipality, which shall use the fund to implement the project.

To implement the project, the Municipality issued Purchase Request (PR) No, 300-2004-04-024 and Purchase order (PO) No. 2004-04-24 to Hexaphil Agriventures, Inc (Hexaphil) indicating purchase of 4,285 bottles of Hexaplus liquid fertilizer at the unit price of P700.00 each, or a total of P2,995,500.00.

The municipality paid the said purchase in two tranches.

Per the unnumbered Acceptance and Inspection report dated 12 April 2004, the Municipality received 4,285 bottles of Hexaplus liquid fertilizer.

The complainant alleged that the respondents violated the provisions of RA 9184 when the respondents pursued direct contracting as the mode of procurement and made reference to the brand name Hexaplus in the Brief Project Proposal and PR.

The complainant also insisted that the transaction between the Municipality and Hexaphil was determined beforehand to circumvent the requirement of RA 9184 on public bidding.

The complainant disputed Hexaphil’s eligibility as supplier of liquid fertilizer and that the price of the liquid fertilized was “grossly overpriced.”

Furthermore, the complainant said that according to the national average prices of fertilizer and pesticides released by the Fertilizer Pesticide Authority for CY 2004, the prevailing retail prices of liquid fertilizers at the time of the procurement ranged from P130.00 to P420.00 only. Thus, the transaction was overpriced by P1,019,830.00 to P2,386,745.00, causing undue injury to the government.

On account of the above allegations, the complainant charged the respondents with violation of Section 3 (e) of Republic Act 3019, which pertains to Malversation of Public Funds or Property.

Gache’s defense

Former Mayor Gache denied any knowledge or participation in the preparation of the Brief Project Proposal, the recommendation made by the BAC, the award of the contract to Hexaphil, the receipt of the fertilizers by the Municipality, the overpricing of Hexaplus liquid fertilizer, and the distribution of the fertilizers to the farmer beneficiaries.

Assistant Municipal Civil Register Raul Rayos, Municipal Treasurer Cecilio Noora, Municipal Development Coordinator (MPDC) Miriam Hernandez, Municipal Budget Officer Ireneo Zabala, and Municipal Civil Registrar Romeo Maranan also refuted the charges againt them. They said that from 12 to 27 March 2004, the BAC secretariat posted the Invitation to Bid in three different conspicuous places in the municipality as required by law.

They decided to pursue direct contracting as the mode of procurement because of the certifications issued by the municipal and provincial agriculturists that there was no suitable substitute for Hexaplus liquid fertilizer and that Hexaphil did not have sub dealers selling at lower prices.

Regarding the two lists of farmer beneficiaries, Municipal Agriculturist Felicisima Velasco explained that the first list contained the names of the proposed beneficiaries while the second list included those who actually received the liquid fertilizer.

Velasco maintained that all the bottles of fertilizer were distributed to all the beneficiaries and were all accounted for, and that the report with the correct number of beneficiaries was submitted to DA-RFU V.

She said that in the Audit Report by State Auditor Reblora, he declared that the “procurement of goods as observed relative to the application of the funds were made in consonance with the pertinent provision of RA 9184 processed thru Bids and Award Committee mandated functions and that the liquid fertilizers purchased were properly distributed to the intended beneficiaries.

As far as Municipal Treasurer Noora was concerned, he admitted that he signed the PR and two DVs and certified as to the availability of the funds since the DA-RFU V already transferred the fund to the municipality.

Municipal Accountant Adela Adlawan contended that she only certified to the completeness and propriety of supporting documents/previous cash advances/liquidated existence of fund held in trust.

Like the other respondents, Adlawan stressed that the State Auditor Reblora declared that the procurement of goods as observed relative to the application of the funds were made in consonance with the pertinent provisions of Republic Act 9184 (Government Procurement Reform Act), processed through the Bids and Award Committee.

Victoria R. Ajero denied in her counter affidavit being an employee , officer, or being in any way connected with Hexaphil, except the accommodation she extended when she was appointed as one of its representatives for its transactions in the Bicol region.


Based on the evidence on record, as well as the complainant’s allegations, the Ombudsman said irregularities attended the subject procurement.

It was highly irregular for the BAC to award the contract to Hexaphil on 2 April 2004 even before the P3M funds was made available for the Municipality’s disposal and the request for purchase of liquid fertilizers was approved by Mayor Gache.

The delivery of the fertilizers to the Municipality and Hexaphil’s issuance of invoice preceded the execution of the MOA and the release of funds to the Municipality.

The 4,285 bottles of liquid fertilizer were received and inspected by the Municipality on April 12, 2004 despite the release of the P3-million fund in two tranches only after said receipt. Hexaphil could not have made a single delivery of 4,285 of liquid fertilizer worth P2,999,500.00 to the Municipality if the P3-million fund was released in two tranches.

Finally, the BAC recommended the award of the contract to Hexaphil without verifying the latter was qualified to supply liquid fertilizers at the time of the procurement.

“Based on these observations, it appears that the respondents’ public officers manipulated the procurement process to make it seem as if the transaction was regular and above board,” the record said.

“On the basis of the foregoing, this Office finds probable cause that Mayor Gache, Adlawan, Noora, Rayos, Hernandez, Zabala, Maranan, Velasco, Rivera and Ajero conspired with each other in committing violations of Sec 3 (e) of RA 3019,” the Ombudsman said.

Private respondents Rivera and Ajero actively represented Hexaphil in its transaction with the Municipality, and received unwarranted benefit on its behalf.

“The above-mentioned acts manifest a concurrence of the wills and a single criminal intent – with one participant performing a part of the transaction and others performing other parts of the transaction to complete the whole scheme, with a view of attaining the object they were pursuing”, the Ombudsman continued.

Ombudsman Carpio-Morales in approved the filing of the informations to the Sandiganbayan last July 13. —BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.


DSWD joins authorities in fight vs drug abuse in Bicol

LEGAZPI CITY—The regional office for Bicol of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is enlisting itself in the government's fight against drug abuse by assuming a family-based approach in its anti-illegal substance crusade in the region.
RD Arnel Garcia

DSWD Regional Director Arnel Garcia over the weekend said his office has organized a corps of social workers who are now being trained on the agency’s Family Drug Abuse and Prevention Program (FDAPP), a program which aims to educate families and communities on the adverse effects of drug addiction.

The family, he said, plays an essential role in the prevention of this nagging social problem, hence, the need to be helped to build on their capacities to be oriented on early signs of substance abuse and on correct preventive or corrective interventions.

The FDAPP also aims to reinforce information, education and communication activities that some government agencies, local government units (LGUs) and private organizations are initiating toward public participation in the anti-drug abuse campaign.

“We have arranged a series of the First Level Basic Trainers’ Training on FDAPP with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and other partners that will equip our social welfare officers with expertise in providing families with parenting skills toward building drug-free homes,” Garcia said.

The training is designed as a venue for these workers to become social technology experts in the implementation of the FDAPP that shall be adopted by concerned national government agencies, LGUs, non-government organizations and other concerned sectors, he said.

It is a sad fact that despite having various government agencies attending to the need of curtailing, if not totally eradicating, drug abuse, the country today, after decades of measures and efforts, remains confronted by the rampant use of prohibited drugs.

There are no available figures on the present drug abuse situation in the country or even in the Bicol Region but it is always safe for any observer to believe that it is getting worse as days go by, according to Garcia.

On the other hand, it is of common knowledge that the responsibility to stop drug use and proliferation or at least decrease the dramatically escalating numbers of addiction cases in the country primarily belongs to government agencies, given that there are many laws pertaining to the abuse and incorrect use of drugs that have been promulgated.

Law enforcement agencies such as the PDEA, Philippine National Police (PNP), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), with the goal of stopping underground groups and controlling the spread of their criminal activities when it comes to prohibited drugs, have been strengthened but these government units cannot accomplish these tasks alone, Garcia said.

tHE PDEA, which has the responsibility of monitoring, surveillance and raid of suspected drug nests, is tasked to implement the efficient and effective enforcement of the provisions on dangerous drug and other harmful substances.

It coordinates with the LGU, the PNP AND the DSWD when minors are involved and with local anti-drug abuse councils and the Department of Interior and Local Government whenever they conduct raid and buy-bust operations.

The PDEA also mobilizes local contacts or “assets” who provide raw information about illicit drug deals in the immediate community and are compensated using the budget of “Operation Private Eye”, a program that encourages private citizens to be a part of the global war against drug addiction.

The PNP, through its Narcotics Group, meanwhile implements laws and policies in regards to illegal drugs and underground rings involved in its manufacture and distribution while the NBI initiates the treatment and rehabilitation of drug dependents.

Other agencies directly involved in the anti-drug abuse campaign are the Department of Health (DOH), which monitors and supervises the operations of all government and private drug rehabilitation centers in the country, and the Dangerous Drug Board (DDB) that establishes anti-drug programs throughout the country.

The DDB, which is under the Office of the President and has the PDEA as its enforcement arm, also further develops the existing laws regarding drug abuse prevention and control and conducts seminars and training on addiction awareness and programs.

Garcia said that notwithstanding the existence of these national government agencies, an administration institution such as the LGU of a specific area needs each and every constituent in its area to win over drug addiction; needs support from its citizens to fulfill its mission; and needs every single help it could get in order to overcome this serious problem.

Hence, he said, the DSWD-Bicol is focusing on families and communities in helping both the LGUs and national government against drug abuse through its FDAPP.

The program also involves the promotion of family life enrichment activities to enhance cohesive, bonding and harmonious relationship among family members.

“Family intervention is crucial in making a member involved realize there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Involvement of other family members will be a great convincing opportunity for an individual to give up the vice,” Garcia stressed.(PNA)

Rocha, according to her mother Jocelyn, failed to return to their home at Paradijon, Gubat, Sorsogon. after leaving for class on August 12.

She was last spotted between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. of August 12 in front of Savemore, Magsaysay St., Brgy Sulucan, Sorsogon City by a friend.

Upon receiving the report, elements of the Gubat Municipal Police Station and the Sorsogon City Police Station coordinated with the management of said business establishment to review the CCTV footage for clues on Rocha's whereabouts. Said footage, however, yielded no such information.

They proceeded to the residence of a certain John Jacob, who was identified as Rocha's boyfriend.
Jacob, the police said, was previously seen fetching Rocha at her school before she was reported missing. The residence, however, was closed, and no one could provide information on where its occupants were, the same police report indicated.

Over the weekend, rumors that Rocha had been found circulated on social media, but all had been found to be untrue.

As of this morning, a follow-up operation is still being conducted by the Sorsogon City Police Station and Gubat Municipal Police Station. —BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago. With report from Edgar Tumangan/WowSmile
