Archdiocese of Caceres files unlawful detainer case vs. Canaman town

CANAMAN, Camarines Sur, July 30, 2016 (Bicol Standard)—A complaint for unlawful detainer with damages was filed against the Municipality of Camaman and Barangay Haring by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Caceres, represented by Rev. Fr. Domingo R. Florida, in the Municipal Trial Court of Magarao, Camarines Sur.Trial Court of Magarao, Camarines Sur.



The complaint says that the respondents have been illegally occupying a portion of their property, covered under Original Certificate of Title No. RC-838 (206) and declared under Tax Declaration ARP No. 97-005-097 located at Brgy Jareng, this town.

In the same lot, the defendants have constructed a barangay hall, health center, SK building, basketball court, school, and parks, without the appropriate building permits nor the express consent and authority of the owner, the complaint said.

The respondents have repeatedly and categorically acknowledged that the property upon which the above-mentioned government projects were built, belongs to the Roman Catholic Church, the same complaint states.

Objection to construction, development

As early as October 20, 2006, the Church has categorically disallowed construction and improvements on the same lot because said property is earmarked exclusively for religious purposes.

Another letter dated March 29, 2016 addressed to Brgy. Captain Cantillo, says that he was officially informed that the result of the survey conducted on the said lot clearly shows that a huge portion of the church property is being occupied by the said projects of the barangay.

Meanwhile, after many years of tolerance, the Church has decided to file a complaint to compel the said respondents to peacefully vacate and surrender the lawful possession of the disputed premises to the church.

Said respondents, however, allegedly failed to do so.

The church, thru Fr. Florida wants the respondent LGUs to pay by way of attorney’s fees in the amount of P60,000.00 plus P3,000.00 per court appearance and other expenses in the amount of no less that P10,000.00.

Vacate and surrender

The complainant prays that the court renders a favourable judgement, by ordering the defendants to vacate and peacefully surrender to the church the said premises, clean of any and all improvements/or structures standing thereon.

Furthermore, the complainant is asking the defendants to pay the prevailing rental of the subject premises occupied by them in the amount pegged at P15,000.00 per month.

The Municipal Government of Canaman as well as Barangay Haring have already received the summons pertaining to this complaint. (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)

Cam Sur Partido District girds for trade, tourism takeoff with new airport

TIGAON, Camarines Sur, July 28, 2016 -- Airports are catalysts to economic growth. In a bid to address the need to accelerate economic development in the 4th District of Camarines Sur (Partido District), Congressman Arnulfo "Noli" Fuentebella filed House Bill 1685 establishing a domestic airport in the town of San Jose, to be known as Partido Domestic Airport.



Based on the Master Plan prepared by the Partido Development Administration (PDA), the district-planning and development body of Cam. Sur 4th District, the proposed airport will effectively complement all collective initiatives to position Partido as a premiere tourist destination. It will serve as a vital link to world-class tourism zones in the Province of Camarines Sur like the Atulayan Island in Sagñay; the famous site of international television show, Survivor Series in Caramoan; the Partido Riviera (Sagñay-Tiwi Road), the most scenic tourism highway in the world, and a host of other tourist spots.

The airport will also provide a more convenient access to secondary and tertiary educational institutions in the province, the Philippine Science High School-Bicol Campus and the Partido State University, both in the municipality of Goa, Camarines Sur.

The Master Plan further revealed a more detailed and interesting finding that the proposed airport will assure more safety to passengers owing to its advantageous geographical considerations: site is surrounded by tracts of plains, proximity along the coast of Lagonoy Gulf, significant distance from Mt. Isarog. These factors guarantee a more secure landing and take-off for aircrafts, with minimal possibility of turbulence and haste. It will also provide a safer alternative to Naga Airport which has a short runway.

Fuentebella said that prospects are bright for the district with the operation of this new airport as it will link communities and businesses with the entire country, increase economic activity, and rev up trade and tourism.

He further added that in 2010, DOTC Secretary Jose "Ping" de Jesus, cognizant of the tourism potential of Partido, requested the Department of Budget and Management for the release of allocation for the development of the project. It was unfortunate though that the project was shelved with his sudden departure from the Cabinet.

Under the bill, the Department of Transportation shall undertake the planning and design, construction and acquisition of the airport site in Barangays Telegrafo and Manzana.

Bicol PNP chief lauds Duterte’s SONA message

NAGA CITY, July 26, 2016 (Bicol Standard) --“Maganda ang mga pahayag ni President Duterte at very clear ang mga gusto niyang ipahiwatig sa tao. Yung unilateral ceasefire ay isang malaking bagay para sa kapayapaan ng bayan. Dapat lang magkaisa at hindi nag-aaway ang kapwa mga Pilipino. Hindi tama na dinadaan sa dahas ang solusyon sa mga problema lalo na sa mga kapwa Pilipino. Ipagdasal natin ang adhikain ng Presidente para sa ikabubuti ng lahat na Pilipino.”

Bicol PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe
These were the immediate reactions aired by the PNP Regional Director, Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe, in a text message sent to radio station DWNX.

“Mag trabaho lang tayo. Ang sino mang mapatunayan na involved sa drugs ay iimbestigahan agad. May ilan nang mga under investigation sa Naga City PNP,” the Regional Police Director reiterated to his subordinates over the weekend.

It will be recalled that Buenafe has been busy making unscheduled visits to the different police stations in Camarines Sur since he assumed office as Bicol PNP Regional Director.

The latest police stations that he inspected were in the towns of Del Gallego and Sipocot.

Meanwhile, he also issued a stern warning against police officials who will be proven to be drug users that they will be dealt with and punished accordingly.

Chief Supt. Buenafe said that his marching order to the police is to conduct a relentless campaign against illegal drugs and even intensify their operation.

This is on top of their major task of maintaining peace and order in every community, he added. (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)

MANILA, July 26, 2016 (Bicol Standard)--"Pursuant to the declaration of unilateral ceasefire by the Commander-in-Chief President Rodrigo Duterte, I have directed all Commanders of Unified Commands, Major Services, and AFP-Wide Service Support Units to observe Suspension of Offensive Military Operations (SOMO) against the CPP-NPA-NDF (CNN) effective 25 July 2016," General Ricardo R.

While the SOMO is in effect, however, the AFP shall continue to perform its mandate of protecting the communities and its people from terrorist groups; secure and protect from attacks or sabotage vital government facilities, military camps, infrastructures, and projects.

The AFP shall likewise continue to support Law enforcement operations to help ensure unhampered flow of social, cultural, religious, political, and economic activities of the people and the delivery by the LGUs, LGAs, and NGOs to the communities," he said in a statement.

Rep. Salceda: Paris Agreement bad for PH, developing countries

LEGAZPI CITY, July 26, 2016 (Bicol Standard) – Albay 2nd District Rep. Joey Salceda has reiterated his disapproval of the ratification of the Paris Agreement, backing President Rodrigo Duterte’s stance.

Rep. Joey Salceda
“President Duterte's position not to ratify the agreement is in the interest of the nation and in consonance with the position of the developing countries esp. G77 – China,” he said.

Salceda is the former co-Chair of the UNFCCC Green Climate Fund Board.

Below is Salceda’s full statement, published in February 2016:

“Most of the Western-dominated world media hailed the adoption of the Paris Agreement at the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris, France in December 2015 (Paris COP21). The few dissenting voices, mainly from developing countries, including those in the Philippines, were left unheard and unheeded. Responsible voices from both developed and developing world did point out that the Agreement, meant to replace the only legal regime governing climate change, the UNFCCC and its Kyoto Protocol, is still far from providing a viable solution to the increasingly urgent problem of climate change and its adverse affects.

As in Cancun in 2010, the final result was adopted by applause, drowning out the objections of Nicaragua, not even acknowledging its raised flag. But even after going was overtime, France did not want anything to block a “success” in Paris. It did however hold up the final meeting to adopt the Agreement over the objections of the United States over the use of the word “shall” that would imply its agreement to a legally binding requirement on economy-wide absolute emission reduction targets for developed countries. This would mean a “new commitment” that would require US congressional approval for the Agreement, something that would definitely spell the end of a “universal agreement” in Paris. The host country obliged, gaveling through the agreement, and a compliant secretariat lamely admitted a “technical” glitch, albeit a glaring one, on such an important document.

In effect, therefore, there are no enhanced commitments from developed countries for further emissions limitations, but developing countries have been pressured into putting on the table their “intended nationally-determined contributions” (INDCs), many determined with the assistance and funding from developed countries with the use of their own consultants. It was only after extremely difficult discussions that adaptation actions have been accepted as contributions of developing countries. However, these adaptation efforts still need to be recognized “in accordance with modalities to be adopted” by the governing body of the Agreement. Adaptation actions have become imperative for developing countries to enable them to undertake strong mitigation actions but remain woefully underfunded under the Convention, and are likely to remain so under this new Agreement. No links with financing for adaptation feature in the Paris Agreement.

The Paris Agreement is essentially a compilation of pledges from all Parties to the Convention to limit emissions, and a review of these pledges. The purpose of the Agreement is to hold the increase of global average temperature to “well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels” and “to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above the pre-industrial levels”. Developing countries have held on to the limit of 1.5°C since the negotiations prior to the Paris Agreement process, even as the prospect of holding on to this limit dim with each COP, and further dims as it is pushed over to 2020, when the Agreement presumably will come into force. It must likewise be recognized that a “global mean” would imply much higher increases in temperature in different regions, in particular in Africa and the developing world.

In the meanwhile, studies have shown that the current pledges of developing countries go far beyond their “fair share” of responsibilities for addressing climate change.

The overall effect of the Paris Agreement is a weakening of commitments of developed countries under the Convention, a shift of these commitments to include developing country Parties, without any certainty of predictable and accessible financial resources to developing countries. All of these “intended national contributions” are then subject to review, previously limited only to developed countries under the Convention.

The Agreement is particularly weakened in terms of the legal obligations of developed countries, especially those with the highest responsibilities to historical emissions, on the provision of financial resources, including for the transfer of technology, to developing countries. The provision of financial resources have been extended, albeit as a voluntary action, to “other Parties”, and such actions, also voluntarily to be reported accordingly. Developed country Parties “should” continue to take the lead in “mobilizing” finance, “as part of a global effort”, and “from a wide variety of sources, instruments and channels.” This is far removed from the legal commitments under the Convention.

A great majority of developing countries’ INDCs are made conditional on the provision of financial resources, including for technology and capacity-building. This is in full accordance with obligations under the Convention. The Agreement however provides no certainty that these financial resources shall be provided. Objections even were raised by developed countries on a clear definition of what consists of climate finance, leaving them free to call climate financing whatever suits their objectives.

On loss and damage, even while the developing countries’ call for a separate article specifically on this issue was reflected, there remain no links on financing. It was even specified in the accompanying decisions that the Article in the Agreement “does not involve or provide a basis for any liability or compensation.” A tenuous link to financing is provided in the Article dealing with technology development and transfer, in terms of a periodic assessment of the ”adequacy of support” tempered however by the need likewise to determine its “effectiveness”, a condition of results-based financing practiced by existing multilateral financing institutions.

It is significant that no Annexes exist under the new Agreement. Under the Convention, Annexes are based on the degree of responsibilities for historical emissions that resulted in concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing climate change. Only “developed” and “developing” countries are mentioned in the Agreement, for which there is no internationally agreed definition. The way is then open for shifts in the categorization of Parties depending on their “national circumstances”, as may be determined under the Agreement. Despite the reference to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, differentiation is all but erased under the new Agreement.

There remain possibilities for developing countries to strengthen provisions on financing and technology under the decisions taken by the COP for the period leading up to the presumed date of entry into force of the Agreement. Among them is the recognition of needs-based financing, and the start of a process to identify the “qualitative and quantitative information” to be provided by developed country Parties on financial resources to be provided to developing country Parties.” It is then incumbent upon developing countries to identify their financing and technology needs and to translate their INDCs into quantified financial resources and required access to technologies.

Representation of developing countries in the processes that will determine these actions, such as mechanisms under the Convention should be strengthened so that they may be able to promote their interests effectively. This would be especially true for the new ad hoc working group on the Paris Agreement (APA).

These, however, would not suffice. We cannot afford to wait until the entry into force of this Agreement to act, and that would be way too late. Each country should continue to undertake strong adaptation and mitigation actions urgently. All are affected by an increasing number of extreme weather events. Science tells us that even if all emissions cease immediately, the adverse effects of current changes will still have to be dealt with for decades to come.

These should be accompanied by changes in consumption and production lifestyles increasingly dependent on continued use of energy. Food consumption and production practices should be revised to focus on local products, and less waste. Poverty eradication and sustainable development should remain the first and overriding priorities for developing countries.

The time to act is NOW.” (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)

Bicol Vigilantes kill 2 more in Naga City

 NAGA CITY (July 24, 2016) Two persons were killed by the group who calls themselves Bicol Vigilantes, the police report said today.


The first victim, who was identified as Mike Reyes, was recovered last night, at around 11:00 o’clock  P.M. at sitio Almeda, Pacol, here. Investigators say that he sustained one gunshot wound at the back of his body. His hands were tied and his face was wrapped with packing tape with a placard on which the words "WAG TULARAN ANG MGA HOLDAPER" are written.

The second victim was identified as Ariel Bucacao y Pied, a resident of 9th St., Doña Clara Subd., Brgy. Concepcion Pequeña. He was found at around 5:00 in the morning near the entrance of Saint James Subd., at Almeda Highway, Brgy. Concepcion Grande. His body was stabbed five times on his chest and the left side of his throat bore a slit wound, indicating that a bladed weapon was used.

Recovered from the place of the incident were one hand grenade and other personal belongings, as well as a cardboard paper on which is written “WAG TULARAN ANG MGA PUSHER - Bicol Vigilantes.”

SPO2 Toby Bongon, Naga City Police spokesman told the BICOL STANDARD that  a thorough investigation is still underway.

“It seems that the victims were just dumped here. There was no fresh blood in the place where their bodies were found. The ropes that were used to tie the hands of the victims, as well as the packing tape used around their heads, were almost identical”, Bongon said.

Records show that this is the fourth victim claimed by the BICOL VIGILANTES, already.

The first victim was recorded at Brgy. Dayangdang. He was, however, able to survive and is being treated at the Bicol Medical Center (BMC). The second victim was murdered at San Felipe, here just last week. (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)
