Bacolod City – SSupt. Edgardo Ordaniel, Bacolod City Police Office acting director, said robbery charges are being readied against the two suspects in the P2.5-million robbery of a pawnshop here.

BCPO operatives have identified the two suspects through the statements of employees of a pension house where the suspects stayed before the heist of Prenda Negrense pawnshop.

C/Insp. Danilo Francisco said they presented the pictures of six suspected members of the “acetylene gang” and two were positively identified as part of the group who checked in the pension house.

Francisco said one of the suspects is about 40 years old and a miner from Kalinga Apayao province, while the other one is about 45 years old and a taxi driver from Baguio City.

“The two were arrested with four companions for attempting to rob a pawnshop in an area in Negros Occidental several years ago,” Francisco said.

Ordaniel said the pension house management suspects that their former employee could be part of the robbery as his native province is near the origins of the suspects. The employee also failed to report to duty Sunday.

The management of the pension house said the suspects checked in February 13 until February 17.

“Although the employee has denied involvement in the crime, he will still be investigated,” Francisco said.

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...

Collision with China

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...
