Civilian shot dead by
fugitive ex-cop

A fugitive ex-policeman, linked to the kidnap-slay of former Bacolod Brgy. Capt. Eleuterio Salabas and his two companions in 2003, was also tagged as a suspect in the shooting of a civilian on Maundy Thursday in Cauayan, Negros Occidental.

Col. Oscar Lactao, Army’s 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, however, said the Holy Week celebration was generally peaceful, with no violent insurgency-related activity in Negros Occidental.

Former Police Officer 2 Dennis Belandres, allegedly shot dead with a .45 caliber pistol a certain John Rey Reyes,24, in Sitio Tambo, Brgy. Inayawan, Cauayan, in a shooting incident allegedly triggered by drunkenness, Chief Inspector Romeo Leyte said, in his report to the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office.moremoremore

Bayan officer to file
raps vs. prosecutor

Bayan Negros Secretary General Christian Tuayon, who was arrested at the Bacolod City downtown area Monday last week for robbery, yesterday said that he is filing charges against the Provincial Prosecutor and the person who tagged him as a suspect in the raid of a fish farm in Sagay City, Negros Occidental last year.

Tuayon was at  a rally when he was arrested by joint operatives of the Philippine National Police Intelligence Group, Bacolod City Police and the Army’s Intelligence group. The arrest warrant for robbery-in-band against him and his companions was issued by Regional Trial Court Judge Renato Muñez but he was released Tuesday after posting P40,000 in bail.

Tuayon said he learned from the court that his name was included by a rebel-returnee as among those who raided the farm of Joseph Edgar Sarrosa, nephew of Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon, Jr. in Brgy. Bulanon, Sagay City, on July 16 last year, where several guns were seized.moremoremore
