Massacred lawyer’s kin
asking PNoy for justice


The family of one of the Negrense victims of the Maguindanao massacre is asking President Benigno Aquino III to help ensure the speedy resolution of the case since three years have already passed and they have yet to attain justice.

Andrea Jayme, the younger sister of human rights lawyer Connie Brizuela, who was the legal counsel of Maguindanao Gov. Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu, joined about 30 members of Gabriela-Negros and Karapatan in a protest at the marker of the Fallen Journalists at the Bacolod public plaza yesterday, by offering red roses tied with black ribbons.

She later joined the members of the Bacolod media, led by the Negros Press Club and the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkasters sa Pilipinas, at a torch and candle-lighting ceremony at the plaza at 7 p.m.moremoremore

Firefighters lack gasoline

The Bureau of Fire Protection in Negros Occidental is now suffering from a shortage of gasoline for its fire trucks.

Worse, this may hamper the firefighters’ response in case of fires.

This is because BFP-Negros Occidental has not received any budget for its gasoline allowance from July to September from their regional office, Supt. Fred Trajeras, provincial BFP chief, said yesterday.

The BFP has 44 serviceable fire trucks in Negros Occidental, with 244 personnel.moremoremore
