Assassins gun down
La Carlota gov’t man

A government employee linked to a murder incident in previous years, was gunned down Thursday by at least four assassins at the Canson Subdivision, Brgy. 2 poblacion, in La Carlota City, Negros Occidental, police records show.

The victim, identified as William Yanson, 52, and a casual employee of the La Carlota City government, sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was declared dead on arrival at the Don Salvador Benedicto Memorial Hospital, Chief Inspector Eduardo Corpus, city police chief, said.

Corpus said the killing of Yanson was well-planned and well- executed by the assassins, who used .45 caliber pistols.moremoremore

Corona admissions
draw mixed reactions


The admission of Chief Justice Renato Corona yesterday that he owns $2.4 million in four banks and another P80 million “co-mingled” funds in three peso accounts drew calls for his conviction as well as acquittal in Negros Occidental.

Corona, who returned to the Senate impeachment trial yesterday, submitted an "unconditional" waiver authorizing the impeachment court to open his peso and dollar bank deposits, and apologized for suddenly leaving the witness stand on Tuesday.

Corona, a diabetic, explained that he suffered from hypoglycemia, a sudden drop of blood sugar that made him dizzy and prompted him to leave the session hall without the permission of Senate President and Presiding Officer Juan Ponce Enrile.moremoremore
