Sextortion suspect entrapped in Naga City


NAGA CITY 5/18/17 (Bicol Standard) -- A barrio lass from Sorsogon is pressing charges today against a certain Edgar Manaloto, who threatened to spread nude photos of her in a sextortion scheme in Naga City.

Manaloto, the police said, is 45 years old, from Lucena City but is presently residing in Pili, Camarines Sur, where he works.

The victim, Nelia (not her real name) told the police that last month, she chatted online with Manaloto, who introduced himself as a foreigner named Rudson Williams.

Manaloto, using the fake name, allegedly promised her an iPhone 7 and $1000 in cash in exchange for nude photos.

Enticed by the offer, Nelia sent photos along with her contact information.

Later, Manaloto contacted her, saying that someone sent him her nude photos.

He told her he would spread the photos if she did not meet with him.

The victim, afraid that he would make good on the threat, agreed to see the suspect after pleading for him not to share the photos.

She travelled from Sorsogon City to Naga City, where she met with and slept with the suspect on two instances on May 3 and 10.

On May 14, Nelia reported to the authorities what happened.

Responding to the report, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group and the regional anti-cybercrime office launched an entrapment operation on Wednesday night at Travel Lodge in barangay Tabuco, this city.

Manaloto was arrested in said operation.

Extortion raps filed vs CSur RTC judge


NAGA CITY 5/18/17 (Bicol Standard) – A complaint for Gross Misconduct and Dishonesty as well as Violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct was filed in the Supreme Court (SC) yesterday (May 16) against Judge Pedro M. Redoña, Presiding Judge of Branch 63 of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) in Calabanga, Camarines Sur.

The verified complaint signed by Siruma Mayor Sandy SR Ondis who alleges that Judge Redoña met with Sol San Juan and France Bombase and in the presence of Ms. Marites Sodsod inside Bisto Roberto at Villa Caceres Hotel, where he demanded the amount of P400,000.00 in consideration for a favorable decision in the election protest case that is pending in his sala.

Ondis, it will be recalled, is the Protestee-Counter Protestant in an Election Protest Case entitled “Carina Ramos-Polinga vs. Sandy Sta. Rosa Ondis" that is pending in the sala of the respondent judge.

The said election protest is pending resolution.

This morning, Ondis told the BICOL STANDARD that Redoña had already personally received an initial amount of P30,000.00 which he calls as “goodwill money” during the initial meeting at Villa Caceres Hotel.

The receipt of the money was witnessed by Ms. Marites Sodsod, France Bombase, and Sol San Juan.

On May 11, 2017, Judge Redoña again met with Sol San Juan and France Bombase in the presence of Ms. Marites Sodsod at KFC restaurant located at SM Naga City Mall where Redoña personally received the P400,000.00, according to the sworn statement of Ondis.

The receipt of the said amount was personally delivered by Sol San Juan to Redoña, the complaint said.

All told, Redona received the total amount of P430,000.00, which he allegedly demanded from Ondis.

In a interview by the BICOL STANDARD, Ondis said that apart from the complaint which he filed in the Supreme Court, he will still initiate additional legal action against the judge.

“I have an appointment with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to file a criminal complaint. I will request them (NBI) to request for a copy of the CCTV from Villa Caceres and KFC Restaurant which will further support my case against the judge,” he said.

CNorte VG Pimentel, SP, junk mining exploration in Labo

The Venida Pit in Napaod, Labo, Camarines Norte triggered the decision of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to recommend the prohibition of mining exploration in the town. (PHOTO: LITO S. DE LEON/ BICOL STANDARD)


DAET, Camarines Norte 5/17/17 (Bicol Standard) — The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Norte has passed a resolution calling for the prohibition of mining in the town of Labo by the joint venture of Mt. Labo Exploration and Development Corporation (hereinafter “Mt. Labo”) and Galeo Equipment Corporation (hereinafter “Galeo”).

Said prohibition covers the mining exploration, but excludes community development and environmental protection and other mitigation activities.

Vice Gov. Jonah G. Pimentel said the Sangguniang Panlalawigan had reached the said decision after proper consultation with the barangay officials of Napaod, Labo and the municipal officials of the said town.

Concern over safety


Pimentel noted that the residents were concerned over their safety with the presence of the Napaod Open Mined Pit, also known as the Venida Pit, at Barangay Napaod, Labo town.

The open mined pit occupies two hectares wide, and in some areas could reach up to 30 meters deep.
“Pag tumataas ang tubig sa balon, lumalambot ang lupa at malamang magkaroon ng mga pagtibag ng lupa sa balon, lalo na’t papalapit na naman ang tag-ulan” (When the water rises in the pit, the soil becomes soft. Soil erosion may occur, especially since the rainy season is approaching) said Barangay Kagawad Amelita Villareal Baning of Barangay Napaod.

Baning added, “baka po may mga bata na maglaro malapit sa balon, baka mahulog sa balon,” (Kids may play near the open pit and may fall into the same).

Revocation


The Sangguniang Panlalawigan admitted that previous to this, it had approved Resolution No. 123-2016 which endorsed the joint venture project of Mt. Labo and Galeo.
The same resolution, however, was revoked, because of the legal controversy that arose between the two parties, which may compromise the rehabilitation to which the joint venture earlier committed.

Response


In response to these developments, Galeo wrote a letter to the Sangguniang Bayan of Labo, saying that they had “accomplished the initial steps to fulfill the mandate of [the] municipal resolution” which required them to conduct environmental mitigation and community safety measures at the open pit area.

Galeo said they had already submitted the proposed work plan for the mitigating activities, as well as presented and discussed the proposed work plan in the regular session of the Sangguniang Bayan.
An ocular inspection of the Venida Pit was conducted on May 9, 2017, according to the same letter.
Subsequently, on Mass Motion, the Sangguniang Bayan of Labo approved on May 16, 2017 the Geo-environmental assessment and the proposed mitigating measures for said open pit mined area submitted and presented by Galeo.

The Sangguniang Bayan further ordered Galeo to immediately implement the same.
Meantime, Mt. Labo sent a letter to Pimentel on April 20, 2017, saying that it “shares the SP’s concern with regard to the mitigation measures on Venida Pit, its surrounding premises, as well as the areas that may be affected.”

“Towards that end, Mt. Labo has confirmed in its letter to the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Region V dated 04 April 2017 that Mt. Labo is committed to assisting the rehabilitation of the affected areas even if the operations which caused the environmental disturbance were not conducted by Mt. Labo,” it added in the same letter.

USAID project includes Legazpi City

LEGAZPI CITY, May 16 --An official of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said Legazpi City had been selected to become part of a five-year flagship project in the Philippines seeking to hasten economic growth and urban development in secondary cities outside of Metro Manila.




Jeremy Gustafson, director of the USAID Office of Environment, Energy and Climate Change, told the participants to a multisectoral forum here on Tuesday, that the project called “Strengthening Urban Resilience for Growth with Equity” or SURGE, would aim to promote a “broad-based, inclusive and resilient” type of economic growth in secondary cities of the country.

“SURGE is the flagship project of USAID’s Cities Development Initiatives (CDI) under the broader Partnership for Growth,” he said.

Aside from Legazpi City, SURGE supports the cities of Batangas, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Puerto Princesa, Tagbilaran, Zamboanga and General Santos.

He said in line with CDI’s approach of providing a multi-faceted package of assistance, SURGE works with existing USAID projects focused on economic growth, environment, energy, climate change, health and education.

Gustafson said the component activities of the project were in such areas as climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, water and sanitation, investment promotion, marketing agreements, land tenure administration and inter-municipal arrangements.

Tuesday’s multisectoral forum, which was attended by representatives from the city government, national and local government agencies, business sector, academe and civil society organizations. It is expected to serve as the mechanism to identify, prioritize and lead the implementation of the activities under SURGE.

Legazpi Mayor Noel Rosal said SURGE could harness the potential of emerging cities like Legazpi wherein the constraints to development could be addressed by the funding and technical assistance provided by USAID. “Through these projects the partner cities could become engines of growth,” he said.

Rosal expressed confidence that with USAID support the city could overcome the challenges in promoting economic growth and creating livelihood opportunities for its people.

“We can build resilient communities… and improve the quality of life of majority of our people,” he added.

Although vulnerable to natural hazards such as volcanic eruption and typhoons, Legazpi City has received citations for its strategies in climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction.

In July 2016, the city was named by the National Competitiveness Council as the third most competitive component city as based on a ranking of all cities and municipalities in the country using the criteria of economic dynamism, government efficiency and infrastructure. (PNA)

87.7% of Bicol villages affected by drug scourge now 'clear'


The Police Regional Office (PRO) in Bicol said the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency or PDEA has declared as “drug-clear” 87.8 percent of the total number of barangays (villages) in Bicol which are deemed as affected by the illegal drug problem.

Sr. Insp. Ma. Luisa Calubaquib, PRO5 spokesperson, said at the start of Oplan Tokhang on July 1, 2016, PDEA had deemed 578 villages out of the total 3,471 in Bicol as “drug-affected” or beset by the drug menace.

“Of the 578 villages deemed as drug-affected, 508 villages or 87.8 percent had been declared as ‘drug-clear’ by PDEA as of May 10,” she said.

Calubaquib said in the three provinces of Camarines Norte, Masbate, Sorsogon and Naga City, the total 260 drug-affected villages had been declared as now 100 percent “drug-clear.”

She said in Camarines Norte, there were 81 drug affected villages declared as drug-clear, Masbate - 66, Sorsogon - 98, and Naga City - 15.

Calubaquib said in the three other Bicol provinces, the number of drug-affected villages declared as “drug-clear” are: Albay — 68, Camarines Sur — 142, and Catanduanes – 38.

She said this means that the remaining number of drug-affected villages in Bicol, which have yet to be declared as drug-clear are in Albay: 37 villages, Camarines Sur — 22, and Catanduanes — 11 or a total of 70 villages.

“The 70 villages represent 12.7 percent of the total number of drug-affected villages in Bicol,” she added.

Calubaquib also noted that out of the 70,659 surrendered drug users in the Bicol region, 1,107 had been enrolled in community-based rehabilitation programs with 191 reported as having graduated from the program.

She said there were also 20 drug users categorized as “severe” cases, who were committed to two private rehabilitation centers and two public rehab centers in the region.

“They are still undergoing the process of rehabilitation and detoxification,” she added.

Records from Camp Gen. Simeon Ola showed that from July 1, 2016 to April 30, 2017, there were 77,161 (male-73,361, female-3,800) drug surrenderers.

Of the drug surrenderers, 6,509 were pushers and 70,659 users. (PNA)

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in Bicol said the region was able to record a 5.7-percent growth expansion in 2016.

Cynthia Perdiz, PSA-Bicol director, said under the GRDP constant prices level in 2016, Bicol posted a 5.7 percent share to Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) or PHp164 billion worth of goods and services produced.

Citing PSA data, she said the region was able to sustain its economic growth expansion significantly within the standard set by the GRDP.

“Services accounted for the biggest share in the region’s economy at 56.7 percent or PHp93.2 billion,” said Perdiz.

She said this was followed by industry at 23.2 percent or PHp38.2 billion and agriculture, hunting, forestry and fishing (AHFF) at PHp33 billion or 20 percent.

Perdiz said as the biggest contributor to the Bicol region’s economic performance in 2016, the service sector accounted for 3.9 percentage points of the 5.7 percent growth.

She added industry contributed 1.9 percentage points, while AHFF’s share was negative 0.1 percentage point.

PSA data showed that industry grew by 8.4 percent in 2016 from a 25 percent expansion in 2015 while manufacturing boosted the industry’s growth surging by 12.0 percent from the 3.7 percent in 2015.

The same data showed improvements in mining and quarrying which grew to 9.0 percent.

PSA said, however, that a slow down was noted in electricity, gas and water supply, which was down to 9.0 percent in 2016 from 14.1 percent in 2015.

“Similarly, construction plunged to 7.1 percent from the 42.5 percent expansion in 2015,” said PSA.

Perdiz noted that the implementation of public and private construction projects in 2016 had accounted only for 7.1 percent or PHp20.2 billion of GRDP in 2016.

PSA-Bicol said Bicol’s GRDP of PHP164 billion in 2016 made it rank ninth among the 17 regions in the country. (Mar A. Arguelles/PNA)

Albay comes up with new scholarship program for senior high school students


An official of the provincial education department in Albay said the province will continue to provide scholarships but with new sets of guidelines so that the main beneficiaries will be the poor and deserving high school students.

Dr. Cham Zuniga, head of Albay’s Provincial Education Department (PED), said they are in the process of making the guidelines for the program to be known as the “Governor’s Distinction List."

He said the provincial government will be coordinating with all public senior high schools in Albay to look for the 20 top honor students per school who could qualify for the program.

Zuniga said Governor Al Francis Bichara wants the local government unit (LGU) to shoulder the college tuition fees per semester of the scholars but the latter will not be obliged to pay back the LGU.

“It’s free and not a loan," said Zuniga.

He explained the new scholarship program is different from the Albay Higher Education Continuing Scheme (AHECS) undertaken under the administration of former governor and now Albay second district Rep. Joey Salceda.

Under AHECS, every Albayano family was assured the chance to send their children to college with grantees given a PHP 5,000 loan each semester but on the condition that the loan will be repaid after the scholar graduates and starts to work.

Zuniga said a PHP700-million loan from Landbank of the Philippines had made possible the nine-year implementation of AHECS.

He said, however, that the provincial government has found difficulty paying the principal loan and PHP 35 million of interest per year for the loan.

Zuniga said Bichara does not want this to happen again with the “Governor’s Distinction List” program.

He said the provincial government will draw funds from its savings and look for ways to generate more funds to sustain the new scholarship program.

“Initially 20 top honor students per senior high school will benefit from the scholarships but eventually all poor and deserving students who want to finish college will get the chance to avail of the scholarship,” said Zuniga.

He said they hope to implement this new program by next schoolyear or by 2018-2019. (Jorge Hallare/PNA)
