Alleged gunman in Arles slay out on bail

Six members of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade tagged in the murder of Judge Henry Arles have filed a memorandum before the Department of Justice, asking that the case against them be dismissed, and that kidnapping and torture charges be lodged against their captors.

Jessie Daguia, the alleged gunman in the murder of Arles, Saturday said he gained temporary freedom after posting bail on Wednesday for an illegal possession of firearm case filed against him by the National Bureau of Investigation before the Bacolod Regional Trial Court.

“I am happy to be home to be able to spend Christmas with my family,” said Daguia, who was released from the custody of the NBI in Manila.moremoremore

NOHS folk girding
for rally today

The Negros Occidental High School alumni yesterday were circulating a text message urging members of the NOHS family to join a protest today versus the Sangguniang Panlalawigan’s denial of a loan for the construction of six classrooms.

The text message said a press conference is set this afternoon to be followed by a rally in front of the provincial Capitol in Bacolod City.

The majority of the members of the SP last week denied the request of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. for authority to avail of a P10 million bank loan for the construction of six additional classrooms at NOHS.moremoremore

Paglaum plebiscite in
December unlikely

The scheduled December 15 plebiscite for the ratification of the creation of Paglaum as a new barangay of Bacolod City may not push through this year.

This came after the Commission on Elections en banc issued a resolution that it will no longer entertain requests for the conduct of plebiscites at this time, Bacolod COMELEC Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said Saturday.

They received the COMELEC en banc resolution, sent by the Office of the Deputy Executive Director for Operations Friday, informing them that it is not possible anymore to hold a plebiscite on December 15 for the creation of Barangay Paglaum, she said.moremoremore
