BACOLOD City – S/Supt. Ricardo Dela Paz, Bacolod City Police Office director, confirmed that one of the suspects in the robbery-holdup of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative in March this year was arrested in Cagayan de Oro last week.

De la Paz revealed to The Daily Guardian here that the police chief of Cagayan de Oro, S/Supt.  Gerardo Rosales, has informed him that Gerardo Saniel alias Gagang was arrested by CDO policemen while undergoing treatment for a gunshot wound at Sabal Hospital in the said city.

Dela Paz said that Saniel is a member of the Alferez-Ozamiz organized crime group which was pinpointed by the local police here as responsible for carting away P3.9 million in cash from Ceneco.

Dela Paz said that Saniel figured in a shootout with CDO policemen who were responding to a robbery of a pawnshop in Butuan City.

Another suspect, a companion of Saniel, identified as a certain Felix Garcia was also arrested.

Dela Paz said communication and coordination is being made between BCPO and CDO police for the transport of Saniel to Bacolod where he has a standing warrant of arrest for robbery-in-band.

Dela Paz said the arrest of Saniel is a serious blow to the crime group.

Rail train BBL

WELL, if this bill was railroaded in the House of Representatives then it must be a rail train going to where only the future will tell. But like the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao train, it languished into nothing except that billions of precious currency disappeared and the Commission on Audit does not know who received the money, where it was spent or who is accountable. Worse, there is no peace there. Read more...

Marcos and Aquino

By: Fr. Ranhilio Callangan Aquino

IN MONDAY afternoon's hearings by the Senate Committee headed by Sen. Bongbong Marcos on the BBL, this time listening to the indigenous peoples and to the representatives of the Mindanao and Sulu sultanates was most enlightening.

It was enlightening to see in Senator Marcos true statesmanship: no attempt at playing to the gallery, no grandstanding, but presiding with the confidence of a true statesman. He was courteous without being obsequious, demanding of responses without being intimidating. Read more...

THE Philippines is now on a collision course with China over disputed territories that can be an international flashpoint.

A few days ago, a US spy plane making a "fly-by" over disputed territories in the "Spratlys" was "challenged" over radio by Chinese military and told to "go away". Another commercial airplane flying overhead was similarly challenged. Earlier, Philippine vessels supplying provisions to Filipino soldiers stationed in the area were blockaded. Read more...

Moral ascendancy

ONLY a handful of local officials of Guimaras are riling at the controversial Guimaras-Iloilo Ferry Terminal (GIFT) project in Parola, Iloilo City.

Except from Vice-Governor Vicente de Asis and the provincial board members, the top two officials of the island-province are eerily silent (deaf-mute?) on the issue, especially the onerous P11 terminal fee to be imposed on every passenger who will pass through the terminal. Read more...
