2 top policemen relieved
from PNP Neg. Or. roster

Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office director Senior Supt. Edward Carranza yesterday confirmed that former Dumaguete police chief, Supt. Crisaleo Tolentino, and Provincial Anti Illegal Drugs Operations Task Group head, Insp. Janelito Marquez, have officially been dropped from the roster of the NOPPO.

The two are undergoing in-depth investigation after a controversial confrontation and misunderstanding ensued between them and their men. This was when a suspected drug pusher, whom Tolentino claimed was their asset, was arrested by the PAIDSOTG recently.

Carranza said Tolentino and Marquez were asked to report to the PNP Regional Office 7 in Cebu. He said he has no idea when the result of the investigation will be released because the case is now under the PNP 7.

 ‘Sacrament of
reconciliation’ pushed

The Commission on Social Action of the Diocese of Kabankalan, Negros Occidental, yesterday joined the call for peace in Negros Occidental through the “sacrament of reconciliation”, on Sept. 21 in line with the Peace Consciousness Month celebration.

The highlight of the celebration, that will be held at the Capitol Lagoon in Bacolod City, includes a Light-a-Candle and Pledge of Peace. It is also the day Martial Law was declared four decades ago.

Fr. Eryl Agus, Social Action director of the Kabankalan Diocese, said in a homily, copies of which are distributed to all Catholic churches in southern Negros, that the call for reconciliation includes the admission of sins through confession, contrition, rectification, restitution and renewal.

San Jose mayor promises
lot for new police station


Mayor Carmelo Remollo of San Jose, Negros Oriental, has promised to find a lot to house the new police station of the town.

He said the existing station, a one level building, was constructed more than a decade ago during the time of then Mayor Fe Montaño, and sits on a 400 square-meter lot behind the town hall.

His assurance came after the recent donation of firearms, communications equipment, two motorcycles and a police patrol car, worth about P1.2 million in local funds to the San Jose police, to boost their peace and order, and anti-crime operations.
