OMB seizes 8 boxes
of pirated CDs, DVDs


Operatives of the Optical Media Board in Manila seized eight boxes of pirated compact discs and DVDs in Dumaguete City, at about 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The team swooped down on RM Commercial, owned and operated by Jeff Tan, at Pinili Street, Dumaguete, and confiscated the contraband, on the strength of Inspection Order 121105, issued by Roland Ronnie Ricketts, chairman and chief executive officer of OMB in Manila, for violation of  Republic Act 9239 or the Optical Media Act of 2003.

A salesgirl, however, claimed that the OMB agents also seized items like shoes, mats, children’s wear, and bags from the store. She added that an agent put off the closed circuit television while the items were being gathered.

Faithful venerate
St. Clare of Assisi relic


Catholic faithful flocked to the churches in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, and in Maria town, Siquijor province, to pay their respects, and offer petitions and prayers to the Relic of St. Clare of Assisi.

The relic arrived at the Dumaguete airport Wednesday morning, and traveled to Siquijor on board a fast craft. Bishop John Du, of the Diocese of Dumaguete, led the pilgrims, priests, nuns, and lay ministers in a motorcade to Maria, and officiated in a concelebrated mass at the jam-packed church in the town.

The relic was then  brought in a procession to the nearby Monastery of the Poor Clare nuns for exposition and veneration.
