SORSOGON CITY 12/3/16 (Bicol Standard) — Sta. Magdalena Municipal Mayor Alejandro Gamos was meted a 90-day suspension without pay by the 4th Division of the Sandiganbayan for alleged Malversation of Public Funds for his failure to liquidate cash advances drawn from 2004-2007.

A special audit done by the Commission on Audit revealed that a total of 52 cash advances with no stated purpose amounting to P8.207M was received by Gamos from 2004 to 2007.

As of 2008, P2,770,589.60 remained unaccounted for.

In January 2007, Gamos took out another cash advance amounting to P400,000 which remains unliquidated and was found to be unrecorded in the books of accounts.

The COA issued demand letters to Gamos in November 2008 and March 2009 but he failed to heed the order for liquidation and settlement.

Meanwhile, the DILG has served a Memorandum for Vice Mayor Ramon Espela to assume office as Acting Mayor, and Councilor Manuel Maestrado as Acting Vice Mayor until after the 90-day suspension is fully served.

Concepcion Gang member shot by unidentified suspects

LIBON, ALBAY -12/03/16) --A day after Bicol Police Regional Director Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe issued an order for the crackdown of the armed, notorious and dangerous members of the Concepcion Group, another gang member was reportedly shot but by two unidentified gunmen.

The police report said that a certain Gilbert Misambique y Salubiense, an incumbent member of the barangay council of Bonbon was injured when he was attacked by the gunmen.

Misambique, the police said, is in the drug list, based on the reports that they had gathered from their informers.

He was rushed to the Bicol Regional Teaching and Training Hospital (BRTH) in Legaspi City for medical treatment.

Investigators are still looking into the motive of the crime.


HEALTH | How can patients prevent medication errors?

QUEZON CITY—In the Philippines, 79 percent of patients experience at least one error during their medication period. Such errors may cause the patients to experience adverse drug reactions, aggravation of illness or worst, death.

Given this risk among patients, PharexHealthCorp.—the most prescribed unibranded generic medicines— encourages them to be aware of the prevalent medication errors, such as incorrect frequency and timing, improper administration, discrepancy in dosage and intake of the wrong drug, among others.

Such lapses in medication are caused by three factors. First is poor communication between health care providers. This happens when a patient visits different health care provider, but does not inform the new provider of his medication history. Secondly, medication error also happens when a physician does not clearly make his patient understand the prescribed medication. Finally, there are medication names and medical abbreviations that soundalike, causing confusion and incorrect usage.

“Medication errors make the condition of the patients even worse. Such errors could cause hospitalization that will result in lost productivity and money that could be used for other household expenses like food, house rent, or education. This is the reason why patients and their caregivers need to understand how vital it is to prevent medication errors,” said Tomas Marcelo Agana III, President and CEO of PharexHealthCorp.

To help patients properly adhere to their prescribed medications and avoid errors that could worsen their conditions, PharexHealthCorp. developed the Pharex CP15. It is a 15-day compliance pouch intended to make intake of medicine simpler as quality medicines good for two weeks are sealed together in a water-resistant pouch.

Agana concluded, “Filipino patients may count on us as we are dedicated to innovate and provide solutions that will help decrease the risk of medication errors.It is our mission to assist them in improving their conditions and have a healthy life.”

Pharex CP15 is all available in any leading drugstores. For more details, kindly contact 433-8088 (local 820).

Bicol activist hits LGU Sipocot on housefly infestation

NAGA CITY 12/3/16 (Bicol Standard) — Vince Casilihan, a popular activist in the region, is now up in arms, not against erring government officials or abusive police and military personnel, but this time against houseflies.

Main photo shows a mug being infested by houseflies in Sipocot, Camarines Sur. INSET: Vince Casilihan
Said insects, Casilihan said, have been pestering residents of Calagbangan North, Calagbangan South, Villazar, Vigaan, and Bolo Norte, Sipocot, Camarines Sur.

This is due to the increase of poultry and piggery farms in said area, he noted.

“Flies, everybody knows, are carriers of disease,” Casilihan said.

In a Facebook post, he chided local government and health officials, headed by Mayor Ogie Astor for ignoring the continuing problem.

Residents claim that they have repeatedly called the attention of their leaders, but it has fallen on deaf ears.

Said residents have taken the issue to social media in the hope of awakening their leaders to immediately come to their rescue.

“May namatay nang bata sa Bolo Norte dahil sa diarrhea dulot ng pesteng langaw,” Casilihan said.

"Kumakain na nga siya sa loob ng kulambo," he added

“Dito, kahit mainit pa ang kape, dinadapuan na ng langaw,” he added.

Earlier this week, Mayor Astor visited Casilihan’s residence to personally see for himself the magnitude of the problem.

Casilihan told the Bicol Standard that Mayor Astor promised not to renew the business permits of the piggery and poultry farms which could not comply with the sanitary requirements.

Fear grips Libon town; RD Buenafe orders Concepcion Gang crackdown

NAGA CITY, 12/3/16 (Bicol Standard) — “He is armed, dangerous, and notorious.”

This is how Bicol PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe described Gilbert Concepcion, the leader of Concepcion Gang that operates in Albay.

Bicol PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe
Police records show that Concepcion’s group had allegedly killed 26 people, and wounded at least six others since 2013.

The most recent victim is Lorivie Marano, of Barangay Libtong, Libon who was shot to death together with her 9-month unborn baby.

Buenafe has already ordered an immediate manhunt of the gang leader and his supporters who have sown terror in the town of Libon, Albay for the past few years.

“We are living in extreme fear due to the recent spate of killings,” a local resident who was interviewed by this paper, but requested anonymity, said.

Peace and Order Council meeting

To rally the support of the residents of Libon, the members of the Municipal Peace and Order Council held an emergency meeting on Thursday.

In attendance were Libon Mayor Wilfredo Maronilla, Senior Supt. Antonino Cirujales, director of the Albay Provincial Police Office, Chief Insp. Edgar Azotea, police chief of Libon Municipal Police Office, and Lt. Col Eduardo Monjardin, commander of the Army's 83rd Infantry Batallion.

They were in unison in condemning the atrocities and banditry perpetrated by said gang.

Series of crimes

During said meeting, Libon Police Chief Azotea emphasized that apart from the recent murder of Lorivie Marano, the group is tagged in several other crimes.

In 2012, the group was implicated in the murder of Makati City engineer Nelson Morales.

The police are also verifying reports that Gilbert is involved in the shooting of his own father in Barangay Molosbolos earlier this year.

Apart from these, Gilbert is also facing a charge for rape after an alleged sexual abuse of his cousin.

Furthermore, there are reports that the Concepcion Gang is involved in the illegal drug trade and extortion activities in the area, Azotea said.

Concerted efforts

In response to the series of crimes, the local government unit has pledged to raise funds to add to the existing reward money offered for the capture of Gilbert Concepcion and the tracking down of the whereabouts of his cohorts.

Meantime, Regional Director Buenafe said that the residents must cooperate with the authorities in these efforts.

Already, the police are working with the Philippine Army and the local government unit to combat the illegal activities of the Concepcion Gang.

“Everybody’s cooperation is necessary,” he stressed.

OPINION | Helping the agri sector by Carmelito Q. Francisco

The recent appointment of Alex V. Buenaventura as president of the government-run Land Bank of the Philippines is a much-needed shot in the arm for the agricultural sector.

Buenaventura brings with him about a decade of experience in expanding a rural bank into a force to reckon with in the industry.

When he left One Network Bank (ONB) in August -- his last act was to lead the bank in its appreciation night -- the rural bank, although not being the one with the biggest capital in the rural banking sector, it is the only Mindanao-based bank that has invaded Luzon and the Visayas, having set up branches in the Panay Island as well as Makati. Lately, the bank, now a rural bank of the Henry Sy-led BDO, has started its strides in Luzon.

It was also under the leadership of Buenaventura that ONB, whose majority owner then was the Consunji group, became among the few institutions that were able to help provide better lending windows to the agricultural sector.

For example, in order for the borrowers not to fail in their projects, ONB designed loan windows that allowed it to supervise their farming activities so that they would stick with the good agricultural practices necessary for them to achieve higher production.

So it was not a surprise when Buenaventura, upon the invitation of the Finance department just three days before Secretary Carlos G. Dominguez III named him to head the government bank, spoke during the Philippine Development Forum on the ways to improve the access of farmers to government funds.

In his presentation, Buenaventura pointed out the need for government to form corporative farms so they could be provided with better loan packages with supervised mechanism.

But before government could do this, it is important for concerned agencies to identify suitable crops depending on location so that farmers will be taught on how to maximize production and, in the process earn better.

Another point that he raised was for government to also provide loans to bigger buyers so that farmers will have ready market for their produce.

The concept that Buenaventura is introducing to the government bank is something that is necessary for the agricultural sector to be able to perform its role as the food provider of the country.

Farmers, just like their unrelated siblings, the small and medium entrepreneurs, have been complaining about the lack of access to loans as borrowing from banks, even when these institutions are mandated to provide them windows, is prohibitive especially on the need for a collateral. Hence, the government must craft a mechanism that will ease the burden of farmers in accessing much-needed assistance, unlike in the past when their calls fell on deaf ears.

Buenaventura is a seasoned banker who has been instrumental in steering a rural bank into greater heights, something that even some bigger banks are envy of. This corner hopes that his expertise will also rub off the government institution whose main mandate is to help a sector that needs not just mere lending window but also utmost attention.

Key online shopping trends in the Philippines that retailers are going to want to know

The Philippines is holding court as one of the fastest-growing e-commerce markets in Southeast Asia, therefore it comes as little surprise as to why online shopping is currently experiencing a renaissance of sorts here in the Philippines. Recent studies have even gone as far as to project that the local e-commerce market will be seeing a compounded annual growth rate of 101.4 percent between 2013 until 2018 due to the high penetration rate of internet and social media amongst Filipinos.

We speak to Rosanne Hortensius - the General Manager of successful European deals platform Saleduck with presence in five ASEAN countries - to identify and understand the online shopping trends of shoppers in the Philippines.

Shoppers rely on social media for reviews and ratings

Filipinos are some of the world’s greatest consumers of social media, spending at average of four hours a day engaging in various social media activities. It is only natural for them to rely on these channels to get information on products, retail websites and etc. Because of this, it is essential for online retailers to maintain a strong social media presence to interact and connect with their customer base. Your social media pages are almost like your resume, potential shoppers will use it to gauge your trustworthiness, credibility, level of customer service and etc.

Filipino shoppers lead the way in terms of brand engagement

As of 2014, a study by Waggener Edstrom showed that 98% of digital consumers in the Philippines follow brands online, leading the way by virtue of online brand engagement. This means that by default, retailers looking to strengthen their brand presence can already expect higher audience engagement with their online campaigns which in turn, results in higher conversions. The same study also revealed that Filipino consumers are more likely to recommend brands they follow online and this can be extremely beneficial to up-and-coming brands looking to establish and strengthen their online presence.

Mobile phones shopping is rising in the ranks

According to a recent TNS study, 20% of the Filipino market made online purchases in 2015 and out of that group, 11% of purchases were made via mobile devices. With more Filipinos using their mobile phones to shop, it’s become crucial for online retailers to ensure that their websites are mobile optimised or they might risk losing out on potential customers. When you can give users a good mobile experience, it helps to foster trust and credibility for your site. On the flipside, if your mobile site is hard to navigate, you may risk losing customers to competition. Functionality and ease of navigation is key when it comes to mobile optimisation and in the off chance that you can’t provide users with what they need when they need it, there’s a high chance they're going to explore other platforms that can.

There in an increase in buying power amongst Filipinos

The recent economic growth in the Philippines has positively impacted the retail market, resulting in distinct changes in consumer behavior. Once more likely to look at price points above all else, Filipino shoppers are becoming more discerning over quality and branding which means that they are now investing more money into high-quality consumer products. With buying power comes demand and online retailers are now in a position to take advantage of this opportunity more than ever. Newer retailers can take their cue from more established e-commerce platforms who are tapping into these markets with additional features such as greater brand variety, increased product categories, VIP memberships and more as incentives to fuel demand.

Gov. Cua fears media, politicians meddling in shabu lab probe

VIRAC, Catanduanes 12/1/16 (Bicol Standard)--"Media and the meddling of politicians might affect the outcome of the on-going investigation and this possibility can only be prevented or balanced if an independent body will be created for the purpose."

This is the statement of Gov. Joseph C. Cua in his letter requesting DOJ Secretary  Vitaliano N. Aguirre II to create or organize an independent fact-finding body to conduct its own investigation on the recently-discovered shabu laboratory in Barangay Palta Small, this town.

"The independent fact-finding body, if granted, will conduct parallel investigation with that of the PNP so as to ensure that all possible angles will be meticulously considered independently, without possible influence from outside sources," the letter reads.

"In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the Province of Catanduanes is committed to afford all possible support and cooperation in the conduct of this investigation,"


DSWD provides shelter units to Bicol’s oldest tribe

LABO, Camarines Norte -- The Kabihug tribe, the oldest surviving tribal group in the Bicol region, no longer dwells under the trees, especially during bad weather conditions, after housing units were constructed for them through a core shelter assistance program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Bicol.

Photo: DSWD
Arnel B. Garcia, DSWD Bicol director, said to date, 70 shelter units have been built through the agency’s Core Shelter Assistance Project (CSAP) that has received support from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

He said since the project started in 2009, 23 shelter units out of the 70 core units have been given to Kabihug families so they could cope with extreme weather events brought by climate change.

The Kabihugs, also known as Agtas, who live in the highlands of Camarines Norte, are of pre-colonial origin whose culture has been preserved through the ages.

Kabihug literally means “friend,” a cultural minority who subsists on root crops, rice and vegetables that they grow in their farms.

“Rice is often hard to come by and is readily substituted with a root crop called “dogma,” said Garcia.

He said the Agtas thrive on fishing and catching crabs, copra making, charcoal making and gold mining.

Garcia said the tribal group is known to seek refuge under big trees during heavy rains that makes their lives miserable and devoid of dignity.

“They sleep in improvised beds while taking shelter in makeshift dwellings framed in wood and roped with leaves with the hard ground as flooring,” he said.

Garcia said because of their isolation, the Kabihug tribe members have lost their network of ties with families and kin that used to provide members with assistance, privileges and protection.

“The Kabihugs, who have their own history of contact with society, wanted to be placed somewhere on a spectrum from ‘isolation to acculturation,’” he said.

Garcia said to improve the living conditions of the Kabihug tribe in Camarines Norte, DSWD-Bicol, the provincial government and the municipal government of Labo, started implementing CSAP that initially benefited five Kabihug families in 2009.

He said the project aimed to provide indigenous families with decent dwellings they could call their own.

“In fact, there were 18 Kabihug families who have signified their intention to avail of the program and be relocated to a permanent site,” Garcia said.

In 2010, UNDP linked arms with DSWD to construct another 65 core shelter units, 18 of which were allotted to the 18 Kabihug families.

Garcia said the tribal folks later realized there was more that could be derived from the project’s implementation.

Lorelie Villanueva, municipal social welfare officer of Labo town, helped organize the CSAP beneficiaries into the Neighborhood Association for Shelter Assistance or NASA.

Garcia said the beneficiaries, who were actively involved in the project’s implementation, worked collectively so they could an realize their dream of having a home they could call their own.

Doris Candule, one of the Kabihug recipients, said the house given to her family has been of big help as they will no longer move from one place to another, particularly during bad weather conditions.

“There will be no more sleepless night for us during typhoons and heavy downpour,” she said.

Garcia said following the assistance given by the government and UNDP, the Kabihug tribe is now closely working with other local communities and sharing their knowledge in community building.

He said some tribe members are now employed in the Guisican Multi-purpose Cooperative that engages them in the planting of fruit bearing trees for P250 a day.

Garcia said tribe members were also provided with disaster preparedness training and given orientation on an early warning system for different calamities.

“These trainings are helpful to them especially that they travel from one place to another,” he said.

Garcia said DSWD has provided them with around a hundred battery operated transistor radios as requested by their tribal chieftain, who said they need these as source of information, especially when there are weather disturbances.

He said that while transistor radios serve as a means for information dissemination, 70 percent of the tribe’s members have their own mobile phones. (PNA)

Residents nix proposed sanitary landfill in Daraga, Albay

by Vince Villar

DARAGA, Albay 12/1/16 (Bicol Standard)—The residents of Barangay San Ramon continue to oppose the plan of the local government unit of this town to establish a sanitary landfill here.

Particularly vocal are the residents of Purok 3 who say they are worried that the sanitary landfill would disrupt their day-to-day activities.

In the public hearing held on Wednesday, November 30, the residents aired their vehement disapproval, especially if their conditions are not med.

In an interview by the BICOL STANDARD with Punong Barangay Aidar Llaguno, he said what his constituents and the barangay council want is for the landfill to be constructed according to plan and for it to be complete in terms of the requirements.

"Kaipuhan talaga kan Gobyerno an tapukan kan basura, kaya lang, an nagiging problema naman ta su mga residentes, kun pumalso daa baad mamarong o maapektuhan an saindang kapalibutan kaya harabo talaga ninda," Llaguno said.

The barangay official underscored that to be honest, they do not see any benefit to the construction of a sanitary landfill, so before agreeing, they want to make sure all the bases are covered.

Fast-approaching deadline

Meanwhile, on the part of the Daraga Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO), Henry Jacob, the head said they will accede to the wishes of the residents.

"Actually, bako man po bilog na baranggay an nagkontra, some of the residents lang kan Purok 3, pero sabi kan council, pag yaon na an mga papeles hali sa DENR, matao sinda nin certificate of No objection," Jacob said.

He further explained that they have to move fast because the Environmental Ombudsman only gave them six months to construct said facility to avoid being charged. This means Daraga has only until March to finish the landfill.

Once the residents consent to construction, the area will temporarily be converted into a Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

It would be recalled that earlier, the downtown area of Daraga reeked of garbage after the Solid Waste Management Commission ordered the closing of its dumpsite at Barangay Penafrancia.

Since then, the LGU rushed to find ways to solve the issue, such as strictly implementing the No Segregation, No Collection policy in every barangay.

All pieces of biodegradable waste would be left in the residences while the recyclable and reusable ones would be taken to the barangay. Meantime, the municipality would collect the residual waste.

Problems arose, however, when the residual waste would be surreptitiously disposed of in a private lot at Barangay Anislag, but this was eventually discovered by the EMB.


At present, the residual waste is contained at Motorpool, and will remain there until the sanitary landfill is constructed.

Should the sanitary landfill at Barangay San Ramon be disapproved, however, the residents of Daraga still have the option of disposing of their garbage at a private landfill.

Said private landfill is planned to be constructed at Barangay Mayon, in a property owned by Iwa Biso Corporation, which is known for constructing waste disposal systems and treatment facilities.

Daraga is one of the 6 LGUs in Albay which were alerted by the Environmental Ombudsman for violating Republic Act 9003 or the Solid Waste Management Act.

The others include Camalig, Guinobatan, Polangui, Tiwi, and Tabaco City.

Meanwhile, Carlo Lorenzano of the Solid Waste and LGU Relations Section of the EMB said that despite the lack of time, they recognize the efforts of Daraga to comply with the provisions of the law.

"Although, di natin masabi na 100% o perfect yung system kasi they are starting pa lang but we are giving them time na maka comply," Lorenzano explained.

5th death attributed to Concepcion Gang

LEGAZPI CITY 12/1/16 — The Concepcion Gang has allegedly claimed the life of its fifth victim in what is perceived to be a killing spree in the town of Libon, Albay.

At about 7:30 p.m. last night, Lorivie Maraño y Sigalat, 25 years old, was shot to death inside her residence allegedly by the members of Concepcion Gang.

The group was led by one Emmanuel “Manny” Concepcion, the police said.

The victim is the fifth casualty in the series of killings allegedly perpetrated by the Concepcion Gang since early November.

Reports say that the group is retaliating after the police tried to serve a warrant of arrest for Gilbert Concepcion, who was spotted in a gathering in Libon, Albay.

Concepcion has been tagged as the number 1 most wanted person in Bicol.

As of this writing, the police are still conducting a follow-up investigation on the incident.

DPWH DE wants Atty. Rodulfo disbarred

NAGA CITY, 12/1/16 (Bicol Standard) – A self-proclaimed crusader and whistleblower in the Regional Office of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is now the subject of an administrative complaint for disbarment filed with the Supreme Court, due to his alleged violations of his oath of office as a lawyer.

Complainant Atty. Elmer Redrico
In an 11-page complaint, Elmer R. Redrico, OIC District Engineer of Catanduanes, said that respondent lawyer Oliver Rodulfo had transgressed at least six canon rules that carry the stiff penalty of disbarment.

Atty. Rodulfo, Chief of the Legal Office of the DPWH Regional Office V is allegedly liable for Gross Ignorance of the Law, Conflict of Interest, Violation of the Lawyer’s Oath and Code of Professional Responsibility, Redrico said.

In the said complainant, Redrico narrated some circumstances that would establish the alleged illegal and irregular acts.

Redrico points out to a certain incident that resulted in the post disqualification of JD Construction, one of the qualified contractors that participated in the bidding of a DPWH project in the province of Catanduanes.

The complainant narrated that it came to his knowledge that Atty. Rodulfo, head of the legal section of the DPWH V, was personally responsible for the preparation of the motion for reconsideration for and in behalf of the post disqualified JD Construction.

The motion for reconsideration was denied by the Bids and Award Committee (BAC).

Upon receipt of the denial, the company filed a protest against said decision of the BAC. He later learned that Atty. Rodulfo was again responsible for the preparation of the said motion, Redrico said.

Meanwhile, subsequent to the incident, he was surprised when Atty. Rodulfo approached him and offered legal assistance in resolving the protest lodged by JD Construction.

Without hesitation, the complainant said he acceded to the help offered by Atty. Rodulfo, since he is the Legal Officer of the DPWH V and at one time, he served as his lawyer in one of the complaints filed against him at the Office of the Ombudsman, he said.

At the behest of Atty. Rodulfo, he was persuaded to sign a Resolution that set aside the post disqualification of JD Construction.

After a careful perusal and review of the resolution, however, Redrico found out that there was a glaring violation of the rules, and that the post disqualification of JD Construction was meritorious. After consultation with the Regional Office, he rectified said erroneous Resolution.

“In short, Atty. Rodulfo who is the legal officer of DPWH ROV is acting as lawyer of a private firm (JD Construction) transacting with the very office of the DPWH,” the complaint stated.

The same respondent also acted with conflict of interest being the business partner of the construction firm, Redrico added.

The complainant prays that Atty. Rodulfo be disbarred for his unlawful, illegal and gross misconduct which constitutes violations of his lawyer’s oath and code of professional responsibility.

The administrative complaint was filed with the Office of the Bar Confidant of the Supreme Court last October 24.

BICOL STANDARD tried to reach Atty. Rodulfo for his comments regarding the complaint but was told that the lawyer is out of the country.

Gov. Cua belies drug links, lauds PNP shabu lab raid

NAGA CITY 11/28/16 (Bicol Standard) — “We are in full support [of this anti-drug] operation," Catanduanes Gov. Joseph Cua stated following the discovery of a drug laboratory in Barangay Palta Small, Virac, Catanduanes.

Gov. Joseph Cua
“We are grateful to this incident as it will send a strong message that we are serious in our war against illegal drugs,” he said.

“It will also identify as to who really are involved in illegal drug trade here and hopefully clear my name for the long time election issue of my involvement in this illegal trade,” he added.

Cua’s name was brought up in earlier reports as involved in the operation of the shabu lab, an issue he vehemently denies.

The provincial chief executive further thanked the authorities for discovering the drug lab, which, citing the authorities, he disclosed is part of a property belonging to a certain Atty. Olpiano Sarmiento.
The property was leased by Angelica Balmadrid, who in turn subleased a portion of the property to one Jason/Paolo Uy, Cua added in his statement.

The subleased property, which was used as a shabu laboratory, was disguised as a warehouse of plastic items.

"We have been to the area a while ago to check and the dummy plastic wares are still there,” he said.

“Initial reports say that the building was constructed one and a half to two years ago. The electric bill plummeted from a thousand to 50 thousand in March 2016 which points that it was operational during that period.”

Cua added that the shabu is sold in mainland Bicol, and not in the island province.

However, Razcel Jake and Niel Angelo were swept by a strong current, and Joel did not manage to rescue them, the investigators said.

The two were rushed to the Camarines Norte Provincial Hospital but were pronounced dead on arrival.

Catanduanes shabu lab probed; inventory underway

NAGA CITY, 11/27/16 (Bicol Standard) -- The Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) is currently conducting an inventory of the materials and equipment used in the manufacture of shabu in the clandestine drug lab discovered in Barangay Palta, Virac, Catanduanes.

Present during the serving of the search warrant were barangay officials, a representative of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the caretaker Laurence Perenia, and Angelica Balmadrid, the owner of the property, which was being leased to a certain Jayson Uy.

Balmadrid is the common-law wife of Atty. Erick Isidoro of NBI.

Earlier today, the alleged getaway vehicle of Uy was found in the town of San Andres, Catanduanes.

Caretaker Pernia was taken into custody by the police for proper disposition prior to the filing of appropriate cases against the perpetrators.

"Many of the containers of chemicals are still sealed, but it is very evident that they are used in the manufacture of illegal drugs," Buenafe stated.

Members of the media from mainland Bicol and Catanduanes were allowed inside the facility by the police to see for themselves the numerous drug equipment and containers of chemicals believed to be used in the manufacture of shabu.
