Suspect in judge slay freed
after posting bail


One of the three detained members of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade accused for the murder of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles before the Department of Justice was released from the Bacolod district jail in Barangay Taculing, Bacolod, yesterday morning after posting bail.

Alejandro Capunong, 28, of Barangay Tabu, Ilog, posted a P80,000 surety bond, for illegal possession of firearm charges filed against him by the National Bureau of Investigation before the Bacolod RTC.

The DOJ preliminary investigation into the NBI-filed raps for the murder of the judge against Capunong and his co-accused is still ongoing.moremoremore

Vice mayor files
petition vs. namesake

Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson filed a petition yesterday asking the Commission on Elections to issue an order declaring Julius Sayson a nuisance candidate.

Julius filed his certificate of candidacy for mayor and will be running against mayoralty candidates Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson of the Nationalist People’s Coalition-Grupo Progreso and former Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella of MKK (Magbinuligay Kita sa Kauswagan).

In his petition, Sayson said Julius has no bonafide intention to run for public office other than to put the election process in mockery and to confuse the voters of Bacolod City by the similarity of their surname, thereby preventing the faithful determination of the true will of the electorate of Bacolod for the position of mayor.moremoremore
