AFP cares for us

It is very very comforting knowing that our uniformed personnel has lost no time in assuring that Mayon volcano evacuees are safe in the designated evacuation centers. Some residents want to return to their homes for fear of losing their belongings. It is but appropriate that the military has put up checkpoints to also monitor the safety of other nearby areas.

The Tiamzons must pay

In keeping Mr. Benito Tiamzon and his wife Wilma in detention, we are assured that they will have no more communication with their group. In the many years that they have led the New People’s Army, they have caused numerous deaths of their victims, even of their own, and who they suspect as traitors and informants. Clearly they are the number one human rights violators. Maybe even they have lost count in the many attacks that they had conducted against soldiers, policemen, and civilians.

This pertains to the erroneous publication of Victor Reyes’ news article entitled “Two soldiers killed as troops take major camp of Abu Sayyaf.”

DESPITE the law giving priority to senior citizens, persons with disability, and pregnant women, we can see in buses seats reserved for them are occupied by non-eligible passengers. 

Teddy Casiño at WEF

After his lost bid at the Senate, former Rep. Teddy Casiño of Bayan Muna was not heard as much. People also wonder why he has not been active on his advocacies, even silent on some issues. It is a surprise that he has resurfaced and was among those who are protesting the holding of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Makati City. He was with militant activists who came near where the significant activity was being held. Bagong Alyansang Makabayan Secretary Renato Reyes was also present shouting that the poor are turned back, excluded and pushed over so the WEF is a farce since the poor are poorer and go even hungrier.

THIS is in reference to the article dated 16 May 2014 titled, Coloma reprises ‘Marie’ reaction, bylined Jocelyn Montemayor, which appeared in page 1 of Malaya. Please allow me to share with you some thoughts on the article. 

Stubborn Chinese poachers

The Chinese nationals caught poaching in Palawan were charged with violation of Republic Act 8550, the Fisheries Code, Section 87 (Poaching) in Philippine waters, and Section 97 or fishing or taking rare, threatened endangered species, and of RA 9147, the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection or Act. These are serious charges but the men insist that they were fishing legally in Chinese waters, the Half-moon Shoal. The men refused to have a lawyer from the Public Attorney’s Office and were recommended bail of P30,000 each, P40,000 each for violation of Sections 87 and 97. Although a representative of the Chinese Embassy was present, they did not provide their own legal counsel. The hard evidence points to their gross violation – their vessel and 350 sea turtles in their possession. They are deemed illegal entrants and will not be allowed to leave the country, but most likely will not spend jail time here.

Mr. President Obama, thank you for the honesty but you might have worsened the situation.

Traffic during Holy Week is usually not heavy which is why Filipinos choose to go their provinces as they know for certain that it’s going to be a smooth ride.
