editorial
All about crime
There is an old joke about a lake town
mayor whose reply to a question by
a radio reporter about the peace and
order situation in his municipality was:
Plenty of fish, but no order.
The recent spate of criminal activities
in Naga City is not a joke anymore,
however.
Top officials of the Metro Naga
Chamber of Commerce (MNCC) say that
these activities while not yet alarming,
should be addressed by the city and
police officials. On the other hand,
Dante Jimenez of the VACC fame, says
otherwise; he wants the death sentence
be restored.
Whatever or however one views this
issue, the fact is, a crime, whether
isolated
or
incidental,
happens
everywhere or anywhere.
So it will be the height of naivete if
one will dismiss it as just ho-hum. It
will also be the height of hyperbole and
exaggeration if we shoot a fly with a
bazooka.
The president of the MNCC is right
in calling for a communal response to
the rising record of crime incidents in
the city, that is, criminality is not just a
government or police matter. It is our
job to scare them off, like what that
detective said in an old Charles Bronson
movie.
The government should also look at
the sociological causes of crimes. For
instance, Nagas fast urbanizing status,
is serving as a magnet not only for
those looking for job opportunities but
also for those who would like to take
the opportunity of snatching someone
elses bag.
We say that this spill-over effect,
should be addressed at its root, the
lack of economic opportunities in the
peripheral towns of Naga. This is a call
for the people and government officials
of those towns as this is a call for Naga
city to make its vaunted development spill
over in reverse to its neighbors. -- fpj

Bigger OFW Remittances


(Atty. APA chairs Acyatan & Co.,
CPAs-DFK International is past chair of
ASEAN Federation of CPAs, PICPA past
president and Hall-of-Famer, and ACPAPP
Lifetime Achievement Awardee).
FX INFLOWS:
Remittances from
Filipinos living and working abroad grew
by 5.6% in the first half of the year. The
June 2015 inflow zoomed to its highest
level so far this year on the back of
sustained demand for skilled Filipino
manpower overseas. The BSP reported
that cash remittances from overseas
Filipinos amounted to $12.08 billion in the
first six months of the year, $637 million
higher compared to $11.45 billion in the
same period last year.
Major sources of cash remittances
were from USA, Saudi Arabia, United
Arab
Emirates,
United
Kingdom,
Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and
Canada. Remittances remained robust
partly due to stable demand for skilled
Filipinos abroad, according to BSP. POEA
statistics showed job orders reaching
454,263 and more than a third were
intended for service, production as well
as for professional, technical and related
workers in the Middle East and Taiwan.
BOP SURPLUS:
The countrys
Balance of Payments registered a surplus
reaching $2.04B in the last seven months,
exceeding the full-year target of $2 billion.
The surplus was a complete reversal of
the $3.64 billion deficit in the same period
last year. The BOP shows a summary
of our countrys transactions with the
rest of the world. BOP components
include trade, foreign direct and portfolio
investments, and even remittances from
Filipinos abroad.

opinions
unlimited
Atty. TONY (APA) ACYATAN
The recorded surplus means more
money went into our economy as
contrasted when a deficit is incurred
which means more foreign exchange
were paid out as against the volume
which were received.
A surplus in
the BOP augurs well for our gross
international reserves translating into a
more powerful Philippine currency, as
the Philippines becomes able to settle
its foreign obligations from its available
international reserve funds.
PAGCOR DONATIONS: The PAGCOR
has donated 482 additional classrooms to
public schools in five provinces, for use by
over 24,000 public school students from
Davao Oriental, Pangasinan, Cavite, Iloilo
and Negros Occidental. The donations
were through PAGCORs Matuwid na
Daan sa Silid-Aralan School building
project which is being carried out in
partnership with the Dept. of Education
(DepEd) and the Dept. of Public Works &
Highways (DPWH).
Said donations enabled the public
schools to somehow respond to the

ever-continuing need for classrooms


all over the country. Provincial and
city executives should coordinate with
PAGCOR for possible donations of
classrooms for use by their respective
student population. We were told that
the benevolent program of the gaming
agency is its special way of paying back
the local governments permission for
them to operate in their jurisdictions.
MEDAL OF HONOR: The Province
of Quezon has a long standing program
of honoring its outstanding citizens with
the awarding being done in time for
the birthday anniversary of its favorite
son Pres. Manuel Luis Quezon. The
recognition is symbolized by way of
the Quezon Medalya ng Karangalan
given to persons recommended by the
Selection Committee and approved
by the Sangguniang Panglalawigan.
A maximum of ten awardees are
recognized per year. (A similar award
system may be adopted by Bicol
LGUs).
A higher award of distinction is the
Gintong Medalya ng Karangalan
bestowed on more elite individuals
or organizations. In the last quarter
century, there are just ten (10) Ginto
recipients including Claro M. Recto,
Lorenzo Tanada, Horacio dela Costa,
Cardinal Ricardo Vidal, Gen. Guillermo
Nakar and Bishop Alfredo Ma. Obviar.
We organized in 2002 the Quezon
Medalya ng Karangalan Foundation
wherein all past awardees are being
enrolled as members.
PROVERBS:
He who pursues
righteousness and love, finds life,
prosperity and distinctive honor.

Oops, graft buster is busted


Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, one of the three
anti-Binay senators in the Senates Blue
Ribbon Committee and a declared candidate
for Vice President in 2016, is the subject of
the following column of NinezCacho Olivares
in the Daily Tribune dated Aug. 25, 2015. This
is for information and study of the people of
the candidates in the coming election.
Well, well, well. Karma has set in.
The self-proclaimed moral crusader and
graft buster Sen. Antonio Trillanes has finally
been unmasked for what he truly is.
Manila Standards Christine Herrera came
up with well researched report on Trillanes 63
and probably counting, so-called consultants,
using Senate records.
More than half of Trillanes office funds,
with a monthly allocation of P2.93, million
for his office goes into paying his houseboy,
some newsmen, family drivers, his campaign
donors, his ex-mutineer pals, and of course a
brother who gets paid P71,200 monthly.
And thats not just a baseless allegation,
which style of inquisition is so well known,
as he and his two sparring partners, Koko
Pimentel and Alan Cayetano are into
demolishing Vice President JojoBinay on
baseless allegations, to bring down his

from
my
window
nenita fuentebella-peones
ratings and for him to quit the presidential
race.
Trillanes has been evading this issue of his
63 consultants, to the point of even berating
media hosts for asking him questions on
this issue. Yet he has the gall to say that
the VP refuses to face the Senate for him
to defend himself against their baseless
allegations and even the trio in the Senate
refused to read aloud, the sworn affidavit
of Binay submitted to the Senate in which
his answers to these baseless allegations

aired by Trillanes and Cayetano through


their self-confessed crooks who are given
immunity, were replied to, pointby point.
Now it is Trillanes who should explain
why even his drivers and houseboy are
being paid from his monthly office funds.
One should ask Sonny boy, just what
kind of consultancy at which his houseboy
and driver are experts that they deserve to
be named as consultants to the senator.
And isnt that a crooked way for a senator
to use office funds, coming from taxpayers
money? Hmmm.Just a thought. Who is the
crook now, especially since the records
from the Senate states this crooked
path?
And to think, Senate President and the
Liberal Party chairman, who claims, along
with Trillanes, Cayetano and Pimentel,
that they all walk the straight path, even
claiming that there is nothing wrong in
senators having many consultants, and
even defending Trillanes for his highly
unethical use of public funds. Maybe
Drilon is into the same practice with his
office funds?
But then again, Trillanes is an ally of

Thoughts of an aging journalist


JOURNALISTS and soldiers have one
thing in common. They do not die but fade
away. Which is the most romantic way of
vanishing from an exciting but dangerous
life.They leave quietly, without fanfare,
without much noise, with nary a gun
blazing.
But it is not riding into the sunset as
what is usually seen in tragic western
movies when the hero departs for world
unknown.There is much life, however, at
the end of a long career. Retirement is the
start of a new life. Who knows,you may
find a new passion.
Quite a number , for lack of
opportunities, are forced to stay home
, waiting for the sun to rise, waiting for
another day.The golden color of the
western skies at dusk,this they do not
even notice.Which is unfortunate.
To them, life which they once knew as
full with color and adventures, is almost
over.This attitude brings them no farther
from the grave.When the zest for life
recedes, what is left is emptiness and
the longing to cross over to the great

A close friend retired after a colorful
career.Instead of sulking within the four
corners of his home,and living a hermits
life, he joined the academe. Now he
finds life as exciting with the presence of
friends crowding his days.
His great advantage is that he has
a PhD. Higher institutions bolster their
prestige by hiring professionals with
PhDs as faculty.
A group of elderly businessmen, the

citys well-off, have found an antidote to late lifes monotony.They meet


regularly and talk.They exchange ideas,
laugh, feed their minds with positive
energy.When someone suggested that
they formally organize, they said that is
for the much younger men who are full
with dreams.
Themselves?They come to enjoy
what remaining days they still have.
When I left my government job
after l6 years in the service, I thought
I would spend my days listening to the
slow ticking of the clock at home.But
something intervened. My PhD has
launched me into a teaching career.
In my early years, my dream was to
become a barrister, not a teacher.
From a newspaper editor to a
human rights advocate to a college
dean, an odyssey that spanned almost
40 years. Not bad.I wake up daily at
the crack of dawn to prepare myself for
the job ahead. The sight of my students

Free medical services for Davaoeos

GAMOT PARA SA KAPWA AT SM

SM once again invites its shoppers to provide less fortunate communities with
disaster ready tools through its Gamot Para sa Kapwa campaign.
A joint project of the SM Store and Watsons in partnership with the Department of
Health, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, and SM Foundation, Gamot
Para sa Kapwa aims to provide quality health and emergency assistance to indigent
communities in the country.
This is especially meaningful and timely during the typhoon season and earthquake risk, when quick aid is essential during emergency situations such as accidents
and natural disasters.
Shoppers do their share by visiting Gamot Para sa Kapwa booths at all SM Stores
until September 30, 2015. They can purchase a Sureaid Disaster Kit worth P99 for donation or personal use or buy 2 kits for only P190 exclusively distributed by Watsons.
Each kit contains items needed for quick survival during calamities like Sureaid
Emergency blanket, 300 ml bottled water, flashlight, whistle and masks.
All donors are also entitled to a P50 coupon to be redeemed with minimum single
receipt purchase of any Watsons brand worth P350 valid until September 30, 2016.
Proceeds will go to DOH accredited beneficiaries nationwide.
Help build disaster ready communities and join SMs Gamot Para sa Kapwa campaign.

More than five hundred pregnant, lactating


and childbearing women in
Davao City availed of free
medical services during the
Kalinga Kay Inay (KKI)
health fair on July 24-25,
2015 in Bankerohan and
Matina, respectively.
KKI is a tripartite effort of
CARD Mutually Reinforcing
Institutions (CARD MRI), a
social development organization based in San Pablo, Laguna and US-based organizations Freedom From Hunger
(FFH) and Microcredit Summit Campaign (MCS).
KKI health fairs are open
to all microfinance clients of
CARD MRI and partner microfinance institutions as well
as non-microfinance clients in
the local community, shared

Tria Marie Torres, CARD


MRI health coordinator.
The project aims to contribute in improving health
knowledge and promoting
behavior change to more than
600,000 women by the end of
2015 and help decrease the
high maternal mortality rate in
the Philippines, thus helping
to address the countrys poor
performance on Millennium
Development Goal (MDG) 5.
The Local Government
Unit of Davao City, Philippine
Health Insurance Corporation
(PhilHealth) XI and Department of Health XI gave their
full support to the project.
PhilHealth XI agreed to set
up a booth in the venue to invite beneficiaries of the health
fair to enroll in PhilHealth.
They also accepted payment

of contributions, printed
MDRs and responded to other queries and requests. The
Social Insurance Officer II
of PhilHealth XI representative, Ms. Kleah Gayle Dublin, thanked CARD for having them in the said event.
PhilHealth and CARD had
been a partner in community
empowerment since 2005.
The extensiveness of
awareness of mothers on maternal health varies on many
aspects, but the root cause
of it is the lack of education
on contraception and access to facilities, said Dr.
Grethel Vasquez, OB-GYN,
when asked about the level
of awareness of women on
maternal health. Dr. Vasquez
also shared that some of their
pregnant patients in the health

fair were as young as 13 years


old.
The weak foundation on
the application of contraception leads to the short birth
intervals, Dr. Vasquez added.
Educating mothers to have
prenatal check-up during the
first trimester and informing
them the many programs of
LGUs [and CARD] will be a
good help.
At least 12 OB-GYNs,
three general physicians, one
pediatrician, eight nurses, five
Barangay Health Workers
(BHW), one Nurse Phlebotomist and one Medical Technologist (MedTech) rendered
the free services to beneficiaries.

Mendicancy
Mendicancy is defined as the condition of being a beggar and it is actually illegal under Presidential Decree No.
1563 that was promulgated by Ferdinand Marcos in 1978.
Although there are some reasonable justifications, penalizing mendicancy does not solve the problem of poverty
but merely diverts the issue. It does not help empower the
poorest of the poor to and help them rise above their conditions. It may all seem futile to help one or a few of the beggars in the street.
However, one could recall the classic parable of the starfish wherein there are thousands of starfish stranded on the
shore, the task of saving all the starfish may seem impossible but by just tossing one starfish back into the ocean at
a time the simple act would make all the difference on that
particular starfish.
At the local level here in Naga, the problem of mendicancy is a humanitarian issue that cannot easily be addressed
by merely apprehending and detaining mendicants. There is
a seemingly counter-intuitive but simple and possibly more
effective solution to the problem, which is a regular soup
kitchen. Establishing a regular soup kitchen may seem insignificant and may not even cause any immediately noticeable dent on the large social problems but it does make a
difference on the individual. If there are at least 31 organizations that will sponsor a one-day soup kitchen per month
at the Plaza Rizal or Plaza Quezon, a daily soup kitchen is
feasible if properly scheduled. What is mainly needed is a
permanent place for the said project. The support from the
local government of Naga is needed in this matter in terms
of providing a permanent place for a daily soup kitchen.
Of course, there would be critics that would argue that
it could only encourage mendicancy. However, it should be
pointed out that a regular soup kitchen will not only alleviate the problem of extreme hunger but may also actually
help reduce the problem of mendicancy and the nuisances
it brings to the general public and the business owners in
downtown Naga.
It may seem counter-intuitive but there are logical justifications for a daily soup kitchen at the plaza. A daily soup
kitchen is actually a three-pronged approach. The soup
kitchen will only serve as 'bait.'
1. The first prong will address the issue of livelihood.
Those adults who are capable of working and who will be
attracted to the soup kitchen will be trained and referred
to livelihood programs and opportunities. NGOs and social
workers can be invited to sponsor and facilitate one of the
soup kitchen activities that will integrate informal livelihood
seminars
2. The second prong will address the issue of vagabonds and street children. Instead of merely apprehending
them and relocating/detaining them somewhere. We could
invite social case workers to counsel and interview them
and have a more humane approach. We first need to understand the specific circumstances before we can provide
specific solutions. Some of these children are also school
children. Some volunteers may provide tutorial services. A
much deeper investigation about their family background
can also be conducted to determine the exact type of intervention they need.
3. The third prong will address the issue of nuisances
that are caused by street children and vagabonds. If there
is a regular soup kitchen (probably at the Plaza Quezon),
these individuals do not anymore need to harass or bother
the stall owners and customers asking money for food. The
soup kitchen will not become a competition to the existing
stall holders because its target clienteles are those who do
not have the capacity to pay for their food.

a question of privilege . . .
very encouraging.
The days rolled by with haste. I did not notice the passing
years, too engrossed to look at the ticking clock. It is only lately
that I know I am no longer in the prime of youth.
Sometime ago, I got a terse note from my English l4
student, Sir, salamat sa panahon nyo sa amin. Marami kaming
natutuhan. Salamat uli,Another two students from the College
of Arts and Sciences penned this note, Sir,thanks for being our
teacher. Still, another who was my student in English l7 said,
Sir, wala kang katulad as a teacher. May your tribe increase.
Many thanks.
Two years ago a policeman who was my student in
Philippine Constitution and Government dropped by my office
to shake my hands. I passed the board exams. I owe it to you,
sir.Another criminology graduate also came to say thank you.
The show of gratitude is touching.It has made my days in the
academe worthwhile. It has also taken away the gloom in my
aging years.I am not, however, ready to walk into the sunset.

the administration, who also
immediately absolves Drilon
on his alleged overpriced Iloilo
Convention Center.
Trillanes consultants were
being paid a total of P1.63
million a month, official Senate
documents showed, an amount
that tripled the allowed P506,262monthly budget allocation for
consultancy services, according
to the Commission on Audit
(CoA), citing Senate records, it
was reported.
From July to December
2014, or a period of five months,
according to the g CoA and
Senate records, Trillanes paid
his consultants some P9.77
million, which exceeded by more
than P6.74 million the allowable
amount for consultancy services
of only P3.03 million.
And can you believe this?
Trillanes also paid his campaign
donors!
Robert Fong and Fabian
Go, paid P80,000 monthly, are
his highest paid consultants.
Something really stinks in
Trillanes pay for two consultants

who were listed as his campaign


donors, with donations worth
P500,000 each, especially since
they had apparently money to
donate to Trillanes. Why then
make them consultants? Unless
of course, they werent donors
but hangers on of Trillanes,
who must then have committed
perjury a criminal offense
on Comelec documents on his
senatorial expenses during the
campaign.
For six months last year,
Fong and Go were paid a
total of P480,000 each. Give
it another six months and a
full year, heck, they would
have gotten back more from
their claimed donations, that
is if the self proclaimed graft
buster of a senator didnt
pocket the millions himself.
The report also said that
Trillanes had at least 16 of
his 63 consultants who were
Trillanes former subordinates
in the military service that joined
him in mounting the Oakwood
and Manila Peninsula mutinies
in a failed coup attempt.

Trillanes included in the


payroll his houseboy Eddie
Ybaez, who as a consultant
was getting P3,500 a month.
The senator s payroll
documents show family drivers
Bernard Allen Marzan and JayAr Caro were being paid as
consultants, at P11,500 and
P8,100 a month, respectively.
Marzan and Caro and
14 other consultants, are
members of the Magdalo.
Even Trillanes brother,
Juan Antonio Trillanes us one
of the highest paid consultants
in the Senate, part of what
the CoA said resulted in
overspending. The brother
raked in a total of P427,200
from July to December 2014
based on Senate documents.
No wonder Trillanesnever
gave either the Senate or the
CoA copies of his consultants
resums and the job that they
are supposed to do and why
there were no achievement
reports. They are all Trillanes
dummies.
One recalls that Trillanes,
while a senator but in
detention, had the biggest

travel expenditure yearly, all


that time he was in jail.
Even then, he claimed it
was his consultants who did
the traveling.
No wonder he has so many
consultants and some more
budgets from his office funds,
which he can hardly explain.
The same report
stated that CoA said the
consultancies did not come
with accomplishment reports
because the services were
confidential in nature.
Naturally, Trillanes, so used
to lying, claimed that he diverts
some of his allocated budget
to pay consultants, which
senators are allowed to do, as
these consultants of his help
him know more about issues in
the different provinces.
Really? Just what do his
drivers and houseboys and
even his so-called subordinates
in the military give him by way
of confidential information?
The alleged bribery charge
he leveled against the Court
of Appeals justices, which is
a figment of his dirty political
imagination?

From Bicol Business Week . . .

Salceda shares DRR . . .

eries and Aquatic Resources,


Department of Agrarian Reform, and Department of Science and Technology, among
others, as well as those in the
private sector.
MNCCI President Gilbert Albero made the formal announcement even as
he assured that some of the
events originally conceived
for the Bicol Business Week
will be carried over for the
Bicol Business Month, with
more new events added.
This will include an entrepreneurial week and a forum on stock exchange and
other financial concerns,
he said. Also being mulled
is a week focused on Education and the prospects of
the K12 curriculum as far is
Tech-Voch and Asean integration are concerned.
Responding to a question by the newsmen present during yesterdays
(Wednesday) press conference, Jose B. Perez, MNCCI VP for Chamber Management said that during
its regular Board meeting
last Aug. 11, the chamber
decided to re-schedule the
business event for two main
reasons: 1) because the
trade event has completed
its tenth year and is about
to enter a new decade, it is
about time that the business
week be elevated into a Bicol Business Month on its

project manager.
During the three-hour
meeting, the Nepalese delegation invited Albay to provide technical advice from
a practitioner perspective
on a DRR law being considered by the Nepal parliament.
"I also told them of our
friendship with Dr. Udip
Shrestra who is responsible
for bringing 70 Nepalese
medical students to Bicol
Christian College of Medicine every year. I told the
delegation that the family
headed by senior parliamentarian Maiya Devi Shrestha
has been inviting me, the

merry season of December,
and ; 2) the change in longer time frame and bigger
scope in terms of exposure
will be timely and fitting as
the City of Naga has for this
year been recently hailed by
the National Competitiveness Council as the Most
Competitive
Component
City in the country.
Henceforth, the Bicol
Business Month in Naga
will be in the same league
as those held in Cebu and
Davao which have their
own respective Business
Month, Perez said.
VP for Special Projects
Jorge Palma added that with
the elevation of the trade
event, we expect more
participation from both
the public and private sectors who want to be part of
this significant event thatis
meant to contribute to the
growth and development
not only of Naga City but of
the Bicol Region as well.
He added that the MNCCI would feel honored if the
participation by the community-based organizations
like the different Municipal
Business Councils, which
the MNCCI has established
in Metro Naga municipalities, will be obtained.

Ateneo Alumni Association Canada


sets anniversary dinner-dance
The Chairman of the
Ateneo Alumni Association
Canada (AAAC), Ed Doroja, recently announced the
holding of the AAACs 20th
Anniversary
Scholarship
Dinner-Dance at the Madison Convention Centre at 17
Vinyl Court, Woodbridge, on
Saturday, October 24, 2015.
This year marks the milestone 20th year anniversary
of the founding of the Ateneo
Alumni Association Canada
which began after the visit of
the late Fr. Raul Bonoan, S.J.,
the President of the Ateneo
de Naga at that time, who informed the group of the plight
of deserving students in dire
need of financial support in order to pursue a college or university education in fulfillment
of their dreams and realization
of their potential.
From that first meeting, the
AAAC was born, composed
of alumni from various Ateneo
Universities in the Philippines,
banding together to raise funds
for deserving scholars. Since
1995, Ateneo Alumni have
utilized various fundraising activities, starting with the core
Annual Scholarship Fundraising Dinner-Dance, augmented
by the Winterlude Dance, the
Spring Dance, and for a time,
Golf Tournaments and Casino
Trips. Special voluntary con-

tributions by members and


supporters have also provided a welcome boost to the
AAACs scholarship funding
initiatives.
These scholarships have
been provided at all Ateneo
Universities, providing deserving youth throughout the Philippines a chance to undergo an
educational experience which
instills in them self-development, spiritual formation, and
social awareness, in addition to
preparing them to join the countrys very competitive work
force. The AAAC is now completing 20 years of organizing
fundraisers, funding twentytwo (22) scholars, to date, most
of whom have since graduated
and have successfully joined
the work force.
It is worthwhile to note that
this charitable activity has benefited not only the scholars but
also its benefactors, its members and supporters, as these

activities also serve as a corollary vehicle for Filipino-Canadians to enjoy good fellowship
among the local Filipino community, while enabling them
to participate in the AAACs
noble undertakings of helping
the less fortunate.
As its all-important 20th
anniversary celebration approaches, the AAAC and its
Chairman reiterate a call to all
alumni and long-standing and
new supporters to support this
milestone through participation
in the Dinner-Dance to be held
at the Madison Convention
Centre in Vaughan, Ontario,
and/or through the placement
of Ads in the 20th anniversary
souvenir program. In this connection, the following may be
contacted for tickets and souvenir program advertising: Ed
Doroja (416-876-3263), Bernie
Sychangco (416-857-7551),
and Toti Gutierrez (416-7519437).

Free medical services . . .

given to beneficiaries. Inside
the mothers kit are liquid
mild soap for babies, cot-

ton balls and buds, newborn


diapers, baby oil, alcohol and

The Kalinga kay Inay was
launched in 2014 and already
had its community health fairs
in Palawan, Bicol and SamarLeyte-Biliran. This is the
fourth community health fair
conducted and the project is
planning to have its last community health fair in Northern
Luzon before 2015 ends. To
date, KKI already reached
5,524 pregnant, lactating and
childbearing women through
community health fair and
279,441 women through credit with education (CwE).
The CwE is part of the
projects aim to contribute to
the improvement of womens
maternal health knowledge
and promote behavior change.
The module is Healthy
Pregnancies Make Healthy
Communities. Further, the
said CwE has been delivered
in Bicol, Palawan, Leyte and
Panay Island. Over the next
six months, implementation of
the said module will take place
in four areas in Visayas, eight
in Luzon and five in Mindanao,
and is expected to reach more
than 860,431 women by end of
2015.

PNP nabs suspected DSWD fixer


LEGAZPI CITY -- The
Philippine National Police
(PNP) Legazpi City Station
arrested a suspected fixer
right at the Department of
Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) field office
here during an entrapment
operation.
DSWD Bicol information
officer Connie R. Barrameda
said the operation emanate
from DSWDs request for

LIPSTICK DAY

police assistance because of


the alleged illegal activities
of fixers in the department.
An entrapment operation
was immediately hatched
with the help of concerned
DSWD client who reported
the said irregularities which
resulted to the arrest of the
suspect Leuilyn Flores, 34
years old and a resident of
Tagongtong, Legazpi City,
Barrameda said.

The SM launch was a beauty-full event hosted by Miss


Philippines Water 2012, Samantha Purvor and graced by
three other beauty queens Shamcey Supsup, Ariella Arida
and Bicols pride Ms. Venus Raj. They shared their different
lip tips and personal stories to encourage ladies to feel more
confident in exploring the world of lipstick.

According to the DSWDs


client from Homapon, Malinao, Albay she accompanied
her niece to ask for burial
assistance of the latters husband on August 17, 2015.
She said Flores approached
her to give an intake sheet
but asked for P500.00 in exchange upon receiving the
cash assistance and allegedly
threatened her if she refused
to give the money.
The entrapment was
planned on that same day
upon release of the burial assistance as both parties agreed
to meet and proceed with the
transaction leading to the arrest of the culprit.
The five hundred bill
marked money, which the
client handed to Flores was
recovered and will be used as
evidence.
Barrameda thus warns the
public to be vigilant in dealing with fixers who charge
certain fees for getting queue
numbers on the medical and
burial assistance of the department.
The said assistance is
intended to help persons in
need and not the ruthless
people who take advantage
to these vulnerable clients.
The agency would not tolerate any kind of irregularity
and hope this also serves as a
lesson to the public not to engage or transact with fixers,
she said.
The General Intake Sheet
(GIS) is used in gathering
information/data. The GIS
serves as one of the basis
for the assessment as to how
much assistance to be extend-
