The direct flights from South Korea to Negros Occidental that were seen as a tourism breakthrough for the province will be short-lived.

The two times a week chartered ZestAir flights carrying mostly golfing tourists from South Korea, that began landing at the Bacolod Silay Airport on January 7 will end on Saturday, ZestAir director Arturo Alejandrino confirmed to the DAILY STAR last night.

The last direct flight will come in on Saturday, but Alejandrino said they will try to explore the possibility of resuming such flights in the future.moremoremore

Bank ordered to pay client
for negligence of security

Silay City Regional Trial Court Judge Felipe Banzon has ordered the Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company to pay its client more than P500,000 in moral, exemplary and compensatory damages, for its failure to provide her the necessary security while she was stabbed and robbed at the bank parking lot in Silay City, on April 11, 2007.

Complainant Ma. Nieves Javellana had filed a complaint for damages against the bank for the negligence of its guards.

In an eight-page decision, Banzon, the presiding judge of Silay City Branch 69 said Javellana had established that the injuries and damages she suffered were consequent to the failure of the bank to provide the necessary security measures to its clients within its premises, which necessarily includes the parking lot, where she was assaulted by the suspect. moremoremore
