They declared that at around 10:20 am of the same day, Arwin Mariano y Danieles, a resident of Brgy. Tabgon, told them that he went to the store of the victim to buy some ingredients. Since nobody was attending to the store, he proceeded to the back of the victim’s house upon hearing some noise, which he wanted to verify.

He saw Danilo de Mesa who upon noticing his presence immediately ran away.

He then went back to the front of the said house where he saw Andrea Alarcon y Pasiona, lying with her face on the floor.

Immediately, Mariano called the attention of their neighbors, with Florencio Parpan as the first to come for help.

The victim was brought to the hospital, but she was pronounced dead by the attending physician.

Meanwhile, in the afternoon of the same date, they arrested the suspect, Danilo de Mesa, and brought him to the barangay hall.

When they searched the body of the suspect, they were able to recover the amount of P5,025 from his pocket.

The suspect then identified Russel Parpan y De La Cruz as his companion in executing the crime.

He further stated that they hit the victim with a piece of guava branch several time causing her to fall prostrate on the floor, unconscious.

A certain Enciang Parpan and Clarita Dilas y Alarkon helped in bringing the victim to Saint John Hospital at Brgy San Jose, here for medical attention.

But, she was already dead, the report said.

A hot pursuit operation is underway for the immediate arrest of suspect Russel Parpan (a.k.a Bulilit), the report added.

Speaker Alvarez files bill amending Sec 13 of R.A. 3019

QUEZON CITY September 26, 2016 (Bicol Standard) – A bill which seeks to amend Section 13 of R.A. 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act that authorizes the anti-graft court to preventively suspend incumbent officials charged with a valid information of graft or violation of the Revised Penal Code involving fraud of government funds was filed at the House of Representatives today.



House Bill 3605, which is authored by Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez seeks to prevent the anti-graft court from preventively suspending incumbent officials for offenses committed during the officials’ previously held position.

It will be recalled that in numerous instances the Ombudsman has relied upon Section 13 of R.A. 3019 in asking the Sandiganbayan to suspend public officials charged with graft as a matter of course.

The prosecutors argue that the officials charged with graft should be preventively suspended to prevent them from using his or her position to tamper with evidence or intimidate witnesses.

Section 13 reads” Any incumbent public officer against whom any criminal prosecution under a valid information under this Act or under Title Seven Book II of the Revised Penal Code or for any offense involving fraud upon government of public funds or property whatever as a simple or complex offense and in whatever state of execution and mode of participation, is pending in court shall be suspended from office.”

Speaker’s Alvarez bill wishes to insert the phrase “provided, that in case such incumbent public officer is no longer connected with the office wherein the offense charged was committed, the preventive suspension order shall no longer be implemented.”

The bill was co-authored by Majority Floor Leader Ilocos Norte Rep. Rudy Farinas, Minority Leader Quezon Rep. Danilo Suarez and Kabayan Rep. Harry Roque.

At present, at least two members of the House of Representatives, namely Rep. LRay Villafuerte Jr. of Camarines Sur and Pangasinan Rep. Amado Espino of Pangasinan have been suspended by the Sandiganbayan for violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

Prosecutors have also asked the court to suspend Rep. Ruffy Biazon of Muntinlupa, who is also facing graft, malversation and direct bribery charges for his alleged participation in the pork barrel scam.

Broadcasting from Facebook: a new trend in Bicol

NAGA CITY, September 26 (Bicol Standard)—Radio broadcasters across the Bicol region are discovering a new way to connect to listeners: through social media.

Left: Grace Inocentes, Right: Mark Kevin Arroco
Since the launch of Facebook Live last April, local media personalities have been harnessing the feature to deliver content to audiences from across the globe.

Among them is RMN DWNX’s Grace Inocentes, who says that Facebook allows her to reach viewers who would otherwise be unable to tune in to her broadcast, because of the limits of local radio signals.

For instance, during the recent Penafrancia fiesta, many of her Facebook friends from outside Bicol were grateful for the live feed.

Inocentes hosts programs on said radio station alongside Ed Ventura.

Also taking advantage of this platform is BBS-DWLV’s Oscar Esmenda, who said that with Facebook, the audience is able to not only hear, but also see the broadcaster.

“Facebook has become a way for us broadcasters to establish a more personal and deeper connection with our audience,” he remarked.

Other radio personalities from Bicol who broadcast live feeds of their programs are Mark Kevin Arroco of Zagitsit News FM, Edgar Tumangan of Wow Smile Radio Sorsogon, Vince Villar of Idol FM, Jun Alegre, station manager of Zagitsit News FM, Edison Bordeos of Brigada, and Edwin Lara of BBS-DWLV, among several others.

Prosecutors want LRay’s MR denied by Sandiganbayan

NAGA CITY September 25, 2016 (Bicol Standard) -- Private complainant Carlo Batalla of the Citizens Crime Watch (CCW) told the Bicol Standard that the government prosecutors who are handling the case against LRay Villafuerte asked the Sandiganbayan to deny the motion for reconsideration on the order preventively suspending him for 90 days for violation of the Anti Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (R.A. 3019).

Private complainant Carlo Batalla
Batalla said that the prosecution argued that the issues raised by Villafuerte in his MR “are similar to the issues already passed upon by the Supreme Court in the ruling that dismissed a petition for certiorari wherein Ramon Y. Talaga Jr. questioned the anti-graft’s court’s ruling ordering his suspension for 90 days."

Earlier, Villafuerte filed an omnibus motion for reconsideration before the Sixth Division of the Sandiganbayan, arguing that it erred in issuing the ruling on his preventive suspension.

The main argument raised by his counsel was that "Villafuerte was arraigned over two years ago at a time when he was no longer holding public office; that the pre-trial of the case was finished over two years ago; that the prosecution is nearly done presenting its evidence; that he is no longer based nor holds office in Camarines Sur; and that he never interfered or impeded the case proceedings."

The Ombudsman filed an anti-graft case against Villafuerte for three counts of graft together with private respondent Jeffrey Lo in connection with the alleged procurement of P20 million worth of petroleum products in 2010 from the latter without the required public bidding.
