Murder raps won't scare us,
bids for 2013 still on: Alvarez

Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday said the murder charges filed against his son, Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez, for the death of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles will not scare him and other members of his family into withdrawing their bids for public office in 2013.

“We are good people, but we cannot be stopped by threats,” he said at a press conference with his daughter, Rep. Mercedes Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6th District) at the Vice Governor's Office at the Capitol in Bacolod City

The vice governor said Mayor Alvarez was not present because he is media shy, if he saw all the journalists present yesterday he might just faint. .moremoremore

Arles kin ready for legal battle,
urge VG to present son to NBI


The son of slain Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles yesterday challenged Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. to present Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez to the National Bureau of Investigation so he can submit himself for interrogation to clear his name.

“He (John Paul Alvarez) should defend himself in the eyes of the public and not let his father and his younger sister defend him,” Philip Arles said.

The mayor should show the people of Ilog that he can truly be their leader by giving them an explanation, which they rightfully deserve, the judge's son added.

No RPA immunity for crimes

Undersecretary Luisito Montalbo yesterday said that the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process will remain firm in its stand that no peace table will give “immunity” to any member of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade with criminal liabilities.

Montalbo said this because of concerns raised by some sectors that the closure peace agreement will be used as a shield by those with accountabilities to the law.

“We will let the rule of law take its course, regardless of whether RPA members are involved or not, and independent from the peace process,” he stressed.
