BM Quinones slams CNorte mining squabble



DAET, CNorte— The conflict between mining companies Mt. Labo Exploration and Development Corporation (hereinafter Mt. Labo) and Galeo Equipment Corporation (hereinafter Galeo) has brought confusion and alarm at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

In connection with the issue, Board Member Gerardo Quinones delivered a recent privilege speech pointing out that said conflict has raised questions on who should be held responsible in the event that two companies formerly in a Joint Venture Agreement decide to part ways and there are violations against environmental laws.

“Hindi natin alam kung sino ang ating hahabulin kapag may mga paglabag sa environmental laws at nagkaroon ng hidwaan ang dating magkasamang kompanya,” Quinones said.

Antecedent facts
Quinones narrated that the destruction of the environment which he is opposing stemmed from the instance when Mt. Labo granted its consent to Bohai Top as the operator and overseer of the mining operations in Barangay Napaod.

In exchange for the consent, Mt. Labo, through its director Johannes Raadsma, requested for 1 percent of the royalties, Quinones said in his speech.

He added that following this, several Chinese nationals were arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation in a raid, and pieces of heavy equipment and minerals were confiscated.

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau, heeding the call of the residents of Barangay Napaod, thereafter issued a cease and desist order.

Dangerous open pit

The problem, however, did not stop there.

The mining operations left a huge open pit, which the Napaod residents and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan have deemed dangerous.

“Sa katunayan, ang inyo pong lingkod at BM canlas ay may ipinasa noong 2014 na isang resolusyon para sa MLEDC (Mt. Labo) na magsagawa na ng rehabilitasyon sa Venida Pit, and record shows bagamat paulit ulit po tayo sa pag follow up ay hindi po ito nagkaroon ng katuparan,” the Board Member stated.

“At kung atin pong titingnan, dapat kasama ang Galeo Equipment Corp. sa may pananagutan sa pagkasira ng kanilang area na sakop ng mining claim exploration permit no. 014-2013-V. Sapagkat sila ay may 42% share sa kanilang JVA. Sa mahabang panahong nanahimik ang MLEDC (Mt. Labo) at Galeo sa usapin ng mitigasyon, ito ay muling binuhay ngayong taon ng Brgy. Napaod sa paghingi ng tulong sa Sangguniang Bayan ng Labo na nagresulta sa pagpapatawag sa Galeo at MLEDC (Mt. Labo) noong enero at pebrero ng taong kasalukuyan sa dalawang magkasunod na public hearing.”

Mitigation measure

Earlier this year, the two mining companies were called to appear before the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to shed light on the issue, Quinones said in the same speech.

Mt. Labo, citing its reasons, did not make a commitment before the SP. Meanwhile, Galeo announced that it was ready to carry out a mitigation measure.

Three local government units supported the mitigation measure.

It was during this time, Quinones said, that Mt. Labo announced that they and Galeo were not seeing eye-to-eye on certain points. In particular, Mt. Labo’s representative said that the Joint Venture Agreement was not in effect.

Quinones revealed that the conflict between the two mining companies was surprising, and had raised questions in the minds of the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, as well as the residents of Barangay Napaod.

The Board Member added that because of the issue, he is proposing an amendment to the Environmental Code in accordance with what Pres. Rodrigo Duterte said in his latest State of the Nation Address.

This, he said, will ensure the protection of the environment in the crafting of laws, especially if the applicants have a Joint Venture Agreement.

Pili mayor gets death threats


PILI, Camarines Sur—At least two death threats have been received by Mayor Tomas Bongalonta in the past two weeks.

In an interview by the Bicol Standard, Bongalonta revealed that he got the threats via cellphone calls from a number that was not known to him.

Allegedly, he was threatened that he will not be allowed back into his position as mayor.

He said, however, that he is not afraid of the threats.

“If the person were really serious about killing me, he would simply do it and not go through the trouble of warning me,” he said.

“Regardless, we are tightening our security by asking for assistance from the police.”

“I believe this is politically-motivated,” he declared.

His detractors, on the other hand, said the mayor is simply seeking for sympathy.

Previously, Bongalonta was imposed a two-month preventive suspension by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur in an administrative case filed against him.

Division Supt. ng Catanduanes idineklarang persona non grata


SAN ANDRES, CATANDUANES – Idineklarang Persona Non Grata ng Sangguniang Bayan ng San Andres si DepEd Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Socorro dela Rosa dahil sa umano’y pambabastos nito sa mga miyembro ng nasabing konseho.

Ang deklarasyon ay naganap sa loob ng 60th Regular Session ng SB San Andres noong ika-16 ng Agosto, kung saan inaprubahan ito unanimously ng buong miyembro.

Ang hidwaan sa pagitan ng DepEd at SB San Andres ay nag-ugat sa pagpapatawag ng Sanggunian sa isang inirereklamong guro mula sa Palawig Elementary School. Hindi sumipot ang nasabing maestro, sa halip, isang liham mula kay Dela Rosa ang tinanggap ng SB San Andres.

Sa liham, binanggit ni Dela Rosa na ang isyu na kinasasangkutan ng teacher ay naresolba na matapos umanong mamagitan ang Grievance Machinery ng ahensiya. Katunayan, dagdag ng sulat, nailipat na sa ibang paaralan ang nasabing guro kaya ayon kay Dela Rosa, hindi na kailangan mag-appear pa sa Sanggunian ang teacher.

Gayunman, binanggit din ni Dela Rosa sa sulat na ang pagpapatawag ng Sanggunian sa guro ay hindi saklaw ng hurisdiksiyon ng SB, at ito umano ay lumalabag sa prinsipyo ng pagkakahiwalay ng kapangyarihan ayon sa Saligang Batas at iba pang umiiral na jurisprudence.

“And finally, it would be a fitting reminder to each of us not to allow political vendetta to shroud our objectivity and integrity in judiciously resolving an issue before us,” ayon pa sa nasabing liham.

Sa pagdedeklara kay Dela Rosa bilang Persona Non Grata ng SB, nagkakaisa ang kanilang paniniwala na lubhang ininsulto ng DepEd official ang bawat miyembro ng sanggunian. “Her letter has shamelessly depicted the members of the Sangguniang Bayan as a cluster of politicos wanting of common sense.” Gayong ayon sa kanila, ang SB San Andres ang Outstanding Sangguniang Bayan ng buong Bicol noong nakaraang taon at katunayan, representative ng Bicol Region ang SB San Andres para sa National Competition para sa Outstanding Sangguniang Bayan ng Pilipinas. Kaya ayon sa kanila, lubha umanong dinusta ni Dela Rosa ang Sanggunian.

Maliban dito, naging tuntungan din ng deklarasyon ang umano’y tahasang pambabastos ng superintendent kay Coun. Alan del Valle nang magtungo umano ito sa tanggapan ni Dela Rosa ngunit hindi pinaupo.

“She was seated behind her desk, but never offered me a chair to the entire duration of our conversation,” ayon kay Del Valle.

Samantala, bago ang approval ng deklarasyon, inilahad muna ni Del Valle, bilang proponent, ang kahulugan ng Persona Non Grata para kay Dela Rosa. Ayon sa kanya, hindi pagbabawalan si Dela Rosa na umapak sa San Andres ngunit hindi umano nito asahan na tatanggap ito ng anumang respeto.

“She can attend school activities, but she will not be acknowledged in case there is an LGU Official present in the same activity.”

Sa kabilang dako, sa simula ay kinontesta ni Coun. Andy Facundo ang deklarasyon kay Dela Rosa bilang Persona Non Grata. Ayon sa kanya, masyadong marahas ang hakbang at tila mas makabubuti umanong hilingin na lamang ng Sanggunian sa DepEd na ilipat ng pwesto ang superintendent. Ngunit sa huli ay napahinuhod ng mga kasama si Facundo. Dagdag dito, inatasan din si Facundo na maglikha ng resolusyon para sa transfer ni Dela Rosa. Sa deliberasyon, inaasahang ihahain ni Facundo ang hiwalay na resolusyon sa susunod na session ng Sanggunian. (RAMIL SOLIVERES)

Cong. LRay files bill vs fake news



PILI, Camarines Sur — Camarines Sur Rep. LRay Villafuerte is proposing a bill to penalize the creation and sharing of fake news.

In House Bill 6022 or "An Act Prohibiting the Creation and Distribution of Fake News," the following are penalized: the creation of fake news; dissemination; adding and abetting in the creation of fake news and the failure or refusal to retract or remove the fake news and issue an erratum.

The bill defines fake or out-of-context news as "misquotations, false and inaccurate reports including the editing audio and video bites which could result in the distortion of facts and contents."

The penalties include a fine of Php1 million for the first offense, Php2 million and suspension of the outlet or corporation for a week; and Php5 million fine and suspension for a month.

Meanwhile, a similar bill has been filed by Senator Joel Villanueva.

The Villanueva bill defines fake news as information that would damage the safety and welfare of the public and is likely to cause panic, chaos, violence or intends to exhibit propaganda that discredits reputations.

It would penalize those found guilty with a fine ranging from P100,000 to P500,000 and imprisonment from one year to 5 years.

"The aim is to encourage responsible and credible journalism, as well as creating awareness of the harmful effects of spreading untruthful facts. Misleading and deceptive news can cause divisiveness, health hazards, security risks, panic and chaos to this nation, contrary to our Constitutionally enshrined principle of adhering to a policy of peace and cooperation," Villafuerte said in the Explanatory Note of the bill.

"While the responsibility of discerning lie from truth falls with the person consuming the information, it is a moral duty of the State to protect its people from such lies in the first place. This bill aims the curb the existence of disreputable news sources and prevent established mass media outlets from careless publishing of unverified or false content," he added.
