Cagayan provincial disaster council acquires new rescue boats


TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan- The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) here recently acquired six units of aluminum rescue boats to beef up
their capabilities to respond to water rescue operations in the province.
Bonifacio Cuarteros, disaster risk reduction and management officer, said the procurement of additional rescue boats worth P8 million was funded by the provincial government.
Each boat has a 4-stroke 60 horsepower motor which is durable in flood search, on-the-water incidents and other similar rescue operations, Cuarteros said.
He said the six additional rescue boats will be deployed in the provinces four cluster centers: Sanchez Mira for the northwestern side, Buguey for the northeastern side, Lal-lo for
the extreme north area and the provincial capitol for the southern part.
Cuarteros said they will also provide the members of the PDRRMC, disaster responders and rescue units with trainings for them to continuously ENHANCE their skills and
capabilities in disaster and rescue operations.
We have already crafted trainings and activities for the development of our personnel and partners in disasters operations, he added. Oliver T. Baccay

SAN MATEO, Isabela A mongo seed variety which


is suitable for the rainy season will be available soon
here, Municipal Agriculturist Emiliano Camba recently
said.
Munggo, locally known as balatong, is grown
shortly before the onset of the summer season when
the soil still holds substantial moisture.
Camba said the new seed variety, which will come
from the towns demonstration farms, will be distributed
for farmers soon who ventured in munggo production
as additional income source.
He said the only seed variety planted by farmers
here now are the drought resistant variety which is
suitable during the dry months.
The new seed variety is expected to increase the
towns annual munggo production which is now touted
as the countrys munggo capital, Camba said,
encouraging more farmers to consider alternate
cropping of munggo to keep them from being idle after
the cropping season.
Besides its economic value, Camba added that
munggo, according to experts, is one of the most
nutritious foods, being a source of protein, calcium
and iron. Merlito G. Edale Jr.

5ID strengthens relief operations for typhoon victims in Region 2


CAMP MELCHOR F DELA CRUZ, Upi, Gamu, Isabela
The 5th Infantry Division (5thID) fortified its efforts to
assist in disaster relief operations as it opened its doors
to ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya to ensure the distribution

of relief goods to victims of Typhoon Karen and the


incoming Typhoon Lawin.
Brig. Gen. Paul T Atal, D.P.A. AFP, Commander, 5ID
immediately advised the Office of the Assistant Chief of

Staff for Civil Military Operation, G7, to provide storage


for 250 sacks of food packs from ABS-CBN to be
prepositioned at the 5thID Headquarters, Camp Melchor
F Dela Cruz, Upi, Gamu, Isabela on October 18, 2016.
The storage of the food packs in the headquarters
is part of the 5th IDs efforts to ensure that relief goods
are ready for distribution as typhoon victims would need
them. This as Northern Luzon was recently bashed by
Typhoon Karen, causing damages to crops and infrastructures.
The relief goods are also part of the preparation for
the incoming Typhoon Lawin, a possible super typhoon
which was reported to hit Cagayan province on Thursday according to PAGASA. The purpose of
prepositioning the goods at 5 th ID is to support the
governments Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response (HADR) efforts in Region 2.
The relief goods will be under the safekeeping of
G7, 5thID and will be utilized jointly by the Philippines
Armys 5th Infantry Division and ABS-CBN to augment
government resources in times of calamity, particularly
for the Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRRM)
operations for Typhoons Karen and Lawin.
Atal ensured ABS-CBN that the items are secured
and will be guarded for the benefit of the people. He
added that the Star Troopers are ready anytime to help
them in distributing the relief goods for the intended
recipients.

City pushes chain-lock system vs motornapping


TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan - Amid increasing incidents of carnapping here, Mayor Jefferson P. Soriano
urged the city law makers to fast track the passage of
the proposed chain-lock system ordinance here.
Soriano, in a public hearing on peace and ORDER
situation here, said there was already an ordinance proposed by former city councilor now Board Member
Rosauro Resuello mandating all motorcycle owners to
have their vehicles chain-locked when parked.
Aside from the city polices counter measures,
we still want to push for the enforcement of the chainlock system ordinance as an effective measure to pre-

vent motornapping incidents, the mayor said.


Police Supt. Jessie Tamayao, city chief of police,
said motornapping is one of the issues of the city police following the series of incidents even in the past
years.
Tamayao said that based on their records, most of
the stolen motorcycles were parked unattended without locks in front of the victims houses or at public
places and were sold at a VERY LOW PRICE.
Soriano urged barangay officials here to further
strengthen their monitoring and patrolling activities
especially during midnight. Oliver T. Baccay

A likely yellow event happening


THE Liberal Party and members of the yellow horde are jumping
in anticipation for the likely visit of the United Nations Special
Rapporteur Agnes Callamard to probe reported extrajudicial
deaths and the mob expects to use the occasion to fuel what is
up to now a lost cause which is the ousting of President Rodrigo
Duterte.
Callamard said that she is merely waiting for confirmation
by official channels of the invitation letter that Executive
Secretary Salvador Medialdea had addressed to her.
One of those aching for the UN probe is Sen. Leila de Lima,
for obvious reasons, since it will provide the needed breather
as the trail in the probe on
the drugs trade inside the
New Bilibid Prisons all leads
to her and will likely go up
to higher yellow entities
during the previous administration.
Since last month, de Lima has been egging the government
to issue an invitation to Callamard, who appears to have been
already cooped by the yellow mob on the state of Dutertes antinarcotics campaign.
The Palace, through its invitation letter, encouraged
Callamard to also look into the deaths in the ranks of the police
and not only the drugs offenders. Such a request, however, may
not be feasible since the past probe conducted UN Special
Rapporteurs consider extrajudicial killings outside police or
military operations while police deaths were mostly the result
of clashes during raids.
The New York-based international human rights group
Human Rights Watch (HRW) which had shown bias in favor of
de Lima, even demanding that the Senate reinstate her as
chairman of the committee on justice and human rights from
which she was earlier booted out, has urged the UN to take in
Matobato as a witness.
During his Senate testimonies, Matobato already proved
himself a tainted witness due to his conflicting statements that
appeared to have come out of a script.
HRW cited the detailed testimony of Matobato including
his claim on the alleged killings of around 1,000 people in Davao
City during Dutertes term as Mayor.

Has change come to Duterte?


AT THE moment, it seems and
feels like change has come to
President Rodrigo Duterte.
Based on news reports on his
trip in Beijing China, Rody was
fairly diplomatic and with the
usual cuss words absent in
whatever he said for public
consumption, such as not
breaking his ties with the United
States, as well as China and any
other country, and stressed that

he will respect whatever treaties


have been signed earlier.
This can translate to stating
that he is not breaking military
ties with the US, but will not
have military ties or agreements
with China or any other country.
He said as much earlier.
His latest statement can also
be taken as his explanation for
his independent foreign policy for
turn to p. 8

LAHAT na yata ng dapat

Public Order and Safety ay isa

Laging nagpapaalala si Dy
SA mga taong nakakalimut, sabi
nga ni dating NDRRMC chief
General Benito Ramos, consultant ng DART RESCUE 831 ng
Isabela, We Dont need cadaver
bags, just like what happened in
Leyte and Eastern Visayas. We
must be always prepared so that

Congress and the drug killings: See no


evil, hear no evil, speak no evil
SOMETHING surreal happened
while we were waiting for
President
Duterte
to
metamorphose into a butterfly. It
was Congress instead that
experienced drastic change.
While ostensibly probing for
facts and accountability in the
administrations war on drugs,
the two houses of the legislature
mutated into the three monkeys
in ancient Asian tradition.
The three monkeys tale is
what scholars call a pictorial
maxim of the principle: see no
evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
It was popularized by a 17thcentury carving over a door of the
famous Tsh-g shrine in
Nikk, Japan.
The three monkeys are
Mizaru, covering his eyes, who
sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering
his ears, who hears no evil; and
Iwazaru, covering his mouth,
who speaks no evil.
The shrine at Nikko is a
Shinto shrine, and the monkey is
an extremely important being in
the Shinto religion.
Just as there is disagreement
about the origin of the phrase,
there are differing explanations
of the meaning of see no evil,
hear no evil, speak no evil.
In Buddhist tradition, the
tenets of the maxim are about not
dwelling on evil thoughts.
In the Western world, both
the proverb and the image are
often used to refer to a lack of
moral responsibility on the part
of people who refuse to
acknowledge impropriety.
It may also signify a code of
silence in gangs, or organized
crime.

In a life that rejected earthly


possessions, Mahatma Gandhi
allowed one notable exception: a
small statue of the three
monkeys.
Congress flunks oversight
function
How did Congress earn this
possibly
slanderous
characterization?, which, I am
certain, will draw protests from
my limited number of friends
and acquaintances in Congress.
First, after a big fuss about
conducting inquiries on the
controversial drug war, the
Senate and House committees
authorized to conduct hearings
have hastily folded up camp, and
signified that the hearings are
over. The committees will
forthwith write their respective
committee report on what the
hearings accomplished or failed
to accomplish.
Second, after heralding its
inquiry as a no-holds-barred
inquiry into alleged extra
judicial killings (EJKS), the
Senate committee on justice and
human rights declared that there
were no extra-judicial killings or
human rights violations, and
exonerated President Duterte
and his administration.
Third, After devoting its
inquiry to establishing Sen. Leila
de Limas involvement in the
proliferation of the illegal drug
trade inside new Bilibid prisons,
and hearing detailed testimony
from high-profile convicts who
testified to having given drug
money
to
her
or
her
representatives, the House
justice committee decided not to
turn to p. 8

Bantayan ang mga buwitreng negosyante


WALO
ang
namatay
sa
pananalasa ng super-bagyong
Lawin sa Northern Luzon noong
Huwebes ng madaling araw.
Signal No. 5 ang lakas ng bagyo.
Grabeng tinamaan ang Cagayan
at Isabela kung saan nag-landfall
ang bagyo. Maraming pananim
ang nasira sa halos limang oras
na walang tigil na pagbayo ng
hangin.
Grabe
ang
pagba-hang
naranasan dahil sa walang tigil
na pag-ulan. Maraming nawasak
na bahay at maraming kalsada
ang hindi madaanan dahil sa
nagbagsakang puno. Bumagsak
ang mga poste ng kuryente at
ayon sa report, matatagalan pa
umano bago tuluyang maibalik
ang power sa mga nasalantang
lugar.
Sa kabila na maraming
nasirang ari-arian, ma-rami pa rin
ang nagpapasalamat sapagkat
kaunti lamang ang namatay sa

hagupit ni Lawin, hindi katulad


nang manalasa ang bagyong
Yolanda sa Eastern Visayas
noong 2013 na 6,000 ang namatay.
Ayon sa mga residente ng
Cagayan at Isabela, ngayon lang
sila nakaranas nang ganoon
kalakas na bagyo. Ang maagap
na paglilikas sa mga residente
ang dahilan kaya kakaunti ang
mga napahamak.
Hanggang sa kasalukuyan,
marami pa rin ang mga nasa
evacuation centers sapagkat ang
karamihan ay wala nang uuwian
dahil nawasak.
Marami sa evacuees ang
umiiyak sapagkat hindi nila
malaman
kung
paano
magsisimula. Hindi nila alam
kung paano magtatayo ng bahay.

NAIA, ika-5 sa worst airport sa
Asia
NOONG nakaraang taon,
ika-walo ang Ninoy Aquino
International Airport (NAIA) sa
worst airport sa Asia. Ngayon ay
umakyat sa ikalimang puwesto
ang NAIA. Ibig sabihin, tumindi
ang mga nangyayaring hindi
maganda sa NAIA. Taun-taon,
laging nasa top 10 ang NAIA sa
worst airport.
Isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit
ikalima ang NAIA sa worst
airport ay dahil sa tanim-bala
na nangyari rito. Sunud-sunod
ang insidente ng tanim-bala na
pawang turista, balikbayan at
overseas
Filipino
workers
(OFWs) ang nabibiktima. Para
magkapera, tataniman ng bala ng
mga corrupt airport personnel ang
mga bagahe at peperahan ang

mga
biktima.
Ang
mga
kawawang biktima, maglalagay
na lang ng pera para hindi
maabala.
Bukod sa tanim-bala,
reklamo rin sa NAIA ang
kawalan ng air-conditioning

Labor group not worried with influx Of Chinese workers amid DU30 China trip
A BIG labor group is not
worried with the possible
influx of Chinese workers
competing with Filipino
workers for local job opportunities as a result of prospective Chinese projects
and investments in the light
of President Rodrigo
Dutertes 4-day visit to
Beijing, China this week.
The group said they
are rather confident President Duterte and his cabinet economic cluster team
could attract Chinese infrastructure projects and investments that would ultimately provide decent, quality and permanent jobs for
an estimated 10.4 million Filipinos who are currently
unemployed.
Foreign workers are
not banned to work in the
country. But they are regulated, thus, we are hopeful
that President Dutertes trip
to China would bring in jobcreating investments for Filipinos. We trust that President Duterte know by heart
of the need to provide decent employment for millions of Filipinos who are
desperate for jobs, said
Gerard Seno, National Executive Vice President of

the Associated Labor


Unions (ALU).
Established since 1954,
the ALU is the biggest confederation of labor unions
in the country with unions
in agriculture, services and
manufacturing sectors
working in public and private enterprises.
As of January 2016 Labor Force Survey, the Philippine Statistics Authority
(PSA) said there are 7.881
million unemployed and
2.468 million underemployed Filipinos.
Though foreign workers are not absolutely
banned to work in the country, however, influx of skills
and professions are governed and regulated by Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Department Order No. 146-15 series of 2015 otherwise
known as the Revised Rules
for the Issuance of Employment Permits to Foreign
Nationals.
Foreign workers with
certain expertise and identified specialized skills are allowed to work in the country and companies in the
Philippines are allowed to
hire foreign workers if the

DPWH retrofits
bridges in Cagayan
TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan - Following the road widening projects, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) region 2 is retrofitting major bridges in
Cagayan Valley Region to fit them with the additional lanes
of the widened roads.
Regional Director Melanio Briosos said the projects
aim to provide more convenient and safer transport facilities to the public as well as ease traffic congestion in some
parts of the region.
He said five major bridges of the projects were already
completed since July of this year which costs P23.68 million.
The projects include the Pinacanauan Bridge in this
city, Baret Bridge along Cagayan-Apayao Road, Balzain
Bridge in this city, Dapang Bridge along SantiagoTuguegarao Road, and the Liwan Bridge along kalinganCagayan Road.
These are major bridges that are serve not only the
people of Cagayan Valley but the natives of the neighboring provinces as well, Briosos said.
On his part, Engineer Amado Martinez, chief -Maintenance Division, said they applied such as the Carbon Fiber
Reinforced Polymer (CFRP), steel plate, and Asphaltic Plug
Joint in the projects.
Martinez said the new engineering technologies applied in the said projects will further strengthen the capacity of the bridges to last in another 15 years. Oliver T.

Isabela town sponsors


anti-drug forum
JONES, Isabela This
town, in partnership with
the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in the province is set to conduct an
anti-drug forum here in
support
to
the
g o v e r n m e n t s
war
against illegal drugs.
Vincent Dela Rosa,
Municipal Local Government Operations Officer
(MLGOO), said all local
officials
including
barangay workers and
other sectors here are expected to attend the forum on October 18, 2016
at the Municipal Gymnasium.
He said the Philippine Drug Enforcement
Agency (PDEA), Philippine National Police
(PNP), Department of

Justice (DOJ) and Department of Health


(DOH) are also expected
to present their services
and immediate interventions
for
drug
surrenderees in the
town.
This is part of our
massive advocacy to
heighten the public
awareness on the harmful effects of illegal
drugs to the body and
the consequences when
involved in the illegal activities, Dela Rosa said.
He added that the
participants are expected
to each sign the pledge
of commitment in support to the towns relentless campaign against
the illegal drug trade after the forum. Merlito G.

In any case, the applicant is required by law to
individually apply for an
Alien Employment Permit
(AEP) prior to or upon arrival in the country at any
DOLE regional or field office where the intended
place of work is located.
The application is then
subjected to a labor market
testing procedure for one
month. If there is no objection to the position being
applied, AEP application is
granted.
If it is inevitable that
there would be new Chinese
investors who would be
bringing in Chinese workers to build infrastructure
projects, they must apply
for an Alien Employment
Permit issued by the Labor
department (Department of
Labor and Employment
(DOLE)). We urged Chinese
workers to comply with the
law and legalize their stay
so that they can be protected from various labor
abuses and exploitation.
They can also form unions
or associations among
themselves to be able to
collectively bargain for better wages and benefits for
themselves, Seno added.
In the last quarter of
2013, scores of Chinese

Sometimes God Changes


Our Plans
BLURB:
Ministry involves trusting Gods timing when it
doesnt fit ours.
so no one can say that you were baptized in my
name. (Yes, I also baptized the household of
Stephanas; beyond that, I dont remember if I
baptized anyone else.) For Christ did not send me to
baptize, but to preach the gospelnot with wisdom
and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of
its power. Christ Crucified Is Gods Power and
Wisdom For the message of the cross is foolishness
to those who are perishing, but to us who are being
saved it is the power of God. For it is written: I
will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.
Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of
the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has
not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 2
Corinthians 1:15-20
This is a really tough section of scripture to understand if we dont have some background. The
Apostle Paul had made a commitment to come visit
the Corinthians, but then he changes his plans and
doesnt His detractors accuse him of being
untrustworthyfickleIf we cant trust him with
something like this how can we trust his message
about God?!!!

But heres the backgroundHeres the situation


that changed his plansor at least the timing of his
plans to visit.
There is an individual who is part of the Church
that has chosen to have an adulterous relationship
with his fathers wife. Theyve become a couple
and it seems that they still associate with all their
Corinth Christian friendsThey continue to share
life with the churchIm betting even meeting on
the first day of the week with them and taking the
emblems of the Lords supper.
And the Church and its leadership instead of
dealing with this sin and the division its causing
decides to ignore it in fact more than just ignore
it They begin to brag about how accepting they
are how super tolerant they are
Pauls goal isnt to just kick this guy out His
goal is repentance and hopefully restoration and forgiveness in the future.
Tolerantly watching someone standing on the
train tracks while the train bears down on them isnt
the most loving thing you can do And Paul paints
a very clear picture that there is a difference between
our old lives before Christ and our new lives in
Christ.
One of the greatest lies of the evil one is you can
believe in Jesus and not be different from the world
and still go to heaven. That you can give Jesus your
life and keep it at the same time Its a leaven that
still affects the Church to this day.
And its in the midst of this situation that Paul
had planned to visit Corinth and Paul isnt afraid
to deal with this sin or this sinful situation but if
he comes to them now it will involve a season of
rebuke He would make their comfort zone really
uncomfortable His plans were to visit them on his
way to Macedonia and then also on his way back
but he didnt because:

ORDER
In compliance with the order dated March
15, 2016, petitioner through counsel, Atty.
Leogina S. Palanca, filed an Amended Petition
for Cancellation of the Certificate of Live Birth
of Chaudery Imteshal Muhammad Acua Nawab

Correction of Entries in the Certificate of Live
Birth of Imrhan Acua under Registry No. 2003201 of LCR-Cauayan, Isabela and Use of the
Name Chaudery Acua.
A reading of Sections 4 and 5, Rule 108 of
the Rules of Court shows that the Rules mandates two sets of notices to different potential
oppositors, one given to the persons named in
the petition and another given to the other persons who are not named in the petitions but
nonetheless may be considered interested or
affected parties. Summons must, therefore, be
served not for the purpose of vesting the courts
with jurisdiction but to comply to the requirements of fair play and due process to afford the
person concerned the opportunity to protect his
interest if he so chooses.
It is clear from the records that the petition
for cancellation or correction of an entry in the
Birth Certificates of Chaudery Imteshal
Muhammad Acua Nawab Din in the civil register involves substantial and controversial alterations, particularly that the legitimacy of paternity or filiation, or legitimacy of marriage. Thus
a strict compliance with the requirements of
Rules 108 of the Rules of Court is mandated and
his parents as indicated in the Birth Certificate
under LCR No. 2002-1345 name Olivia Torres
Acua and Abdol Razak Bin Nawab Din and
under Registry No. 2003-201 namely Teresa T.
Acua and no fathers name was indicated, must
be impleaded and notified. If the entries in the
civil register could be corrected or changed
through mere summary proceedings and not
through appropriate action wherein all parties
who may be affected by the entries are notified
or represented, the door to fraud or other
_______ would be set open, the consequence
of which might be detrimental and far reaching.
Accordingly, this Order is hereby issued setting the case for initial hearing, to with:
This I verifies petition filed by the petitioner
through counsel fot Cancellation of the Certificate of Live Birth of Chaudery Imteshal
Muhammad Acua Nawab Din under LCR No.
2002-1345 of LCR-Alicia and Correction of Entries in the Certificate of Live Birth of Imrhan
Acua under Registry No. 2003-201 of LCRCauayan, Isabela and Use of the Name
Chaudery Acua. The erroneous certificates of
birth will cause confusion if not rectified, hence,
this petition.
Finding the same to be sufficient in form and
substance, let this case be set for hearing on
NOVEMBER 8, 2016 at 8:30 oclock in the morning. Let this Order be published once a week
for three (3) consecutive weeks in a newspaper

Philippines (LBP), Department of Environment and
Natural Resources and the Rang-Ayan Nature Spring
Credit Cooperative here recently signed a memorandum of agreement for massive greening program in the
province.
William Savella, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer-Isabela, said the tripartite agreement aims to bring back the provinces forest cover
and to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change
in the countryside.
He said the agreement also aims to create healthier
and cleaner surroundings and help provide sustainable livelihood opportunities to the people in the province.

scene operations
CAUAYAN CITY, Isabela
Members of Rescue 922
and City Disaster Risk
Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO)
here recently trained on
basic techniques and
procedures when responding to crime incidents.
The training, led by
P/CI Lovelyn Ganiron of
the citys Scene of the
Crime
Operatives
(SOCO), aimed to equip
responders with the right
procedures and safety
actions when arriving at
the crime scene.
Ganiron said the initial responding officers or
rescue team must preserve the scene with minimal contamination and
should not disturb physical evidences.
It is important to al-

ways follow safety procedures and must respond with caution, she
said, adding that the responders must also know
how to secure and control the people at the
crime scene.
She said responders
must prevent individuals
from altering or destroying physical evidence by
restricting movement, location, and activity while
ensuring and maintaining
safety at the crime scene.
We really need the
support of rescuers especially in providing immediate medical attention
for injured people, however, they must know
their limitations and the
proper procedures to be
observed at the crime
scenes, Ganiron said.

file formal charges against the lady senator.


Fourth, after taking a sidetrip to probe
alleged summary killings perpetrated by an
alleged Davao Death Squad (DDS) during
president Dutertes stint as Davao city mayor,
the Senate justice committee declared that it
found no evidence of the existence of a death
squad.
After hearing and cross- examining Edgar
Matobatos testimony that he was a member
of the DDS, the Senate committee is
recommending the filing of perjury and
murder charges against Matobato.
Some opposition figures and citizens have
charged a whitwash and a cover-up, because
of the sweeping verdict that there are no EJKs
and the clean bill of health handed to the
president. Social media has been especially
rife with criticisms of the work of Senator
Gordon as Senate chief prober.
Unanswered questions
While I am still awaiting the committee
reports, and relying solely on the announced
committee decisions, my chief complaint and
criticism at this point is that the two inquiries
did not resolutely probe to establish facts
about the drug war. It has left many questions
unasked and hanging. It was in too much of
a hurry to please the President.
1. When Mr. Duterte says over and over
that there are 3.7 to 4 million drug addicts in
the country, who should even be killed, where
is his corroborating statistical proof for this?
The Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) and the
Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency
(PDEA), as well as UN monitoring of our drug
situation, maintain that there were at most
1.7 to 1.8 million drug users in the country as
of last year.
2. When the president says that the drug
war will only be finished when the last drug
dealer or pusher is eliminated, who is he
banking on to do the killing? The police and
military? The vigilantes?
3. If an order to kill is issued by the
President, will the PNP or AFP obey the chief
executive and commander-in-chief ? Does the

President have the authority to issue such an


order?
These questions, in addition to the oftasked question about summary killings,
clamor for answers.
They need a serious and urgent answer
within the context of a formal inquiry,
because unless plans miscarry, the UN
probers will be in Manila soon to conduct
their formal investigation. The country and
the government will be able to avoid the
odium of being a human rights abuser, if
government moves expeditiously to answer
these questions.
Reopen probe of summary killings
Some senators, notably Sen. Panfilo
Lacson, has expressed keen interest in the
reopening of the Senate inquiry in order to
put to rest questions that many citizens are
asking.
Says Lacson: I need somebody or
something that will corroborate or buttress
what [Edgar] Matobato has testified to. The
witnesses of the CHR [Commission on
Human Rights], I still want to hear them
out. Lacson is the chairman of the Senate
committee on public order and illegal
drugs.
Lacson holds out the possibility that
another witness and physical evidence could
support the allegations of Matobato.
Lacson said he did not see any proof
during the recent hearings that would link
the President to EJKs.
Lacson also believes that the investigation
of summary killings was incomplete without
the testimonies of the witnesses of the human
rights commission.
In objecting to the termination of the
hearing, Senator De Lima also averred that
there had been no thorough evaluation of the
written submissions and documents by the
committee, especially those from the PNP,
including the official policy papers on
Operation Tokhang, spot reports of the socalled firefights between the police and the
suspects that ended up in the death of the
suspects, and the SOCO reports.
Moreover, she said, the President and PNP
Chief Director General Ronald del Rosa had
not been made to account for their
pronouncements on the violence of the
campaign against drugs.

the Philippines. But despite honoring the


existing treaties and agreements, he also
makes clear that he will not be dictated upon
by any country on military moves from
another country with trade and economic ties
to the country.
A former Reagan aide, as quoted in the
New York Times, said that due to President
Dutertes continuous tirades against the
United States, it would be better for
Washington to let go of the Philippines as an
ally.
Former White House adviser to the late
US President Ronald Reagan, Douglas
Bandow said the Philippines does not
deserve US assistance anymore due to the
Philippine Presidents unpredictable foreign
policy.
President Duterte is not a reliable ally.
The United States should not allow such an
unpredictable regime to be a trigger for war,
Bandow said.
Washington should drop the mutual
defense treaty and joint patrols, he stressed.
Bandow added that the Philippine
President has the tendency to pull
Washington into a possible confrontation
with China amid the sea feud between
Beijing and Manila.
Insisting on defending the Philippines
irrespective of its actions is particularly
dangerous. Manila relies on American
support rather than its own military in
confronting China and could drag the United
States into a conflict easily, Bandow said,
adding that the Philippines needs America
far more than America needs the Philippines.
Manila spends less than one percent of its
gross domestic product on its military and its
best ships are US cast-offs. It doesnt help
defend the United States from anyone, he
said.

Bandow is way off in his analysis. Its not


the Philippines that the US is ready to defend.
The US wants the Philippines as its ally
because this serves the US interests, not the
Philippine interest. Thats why the US wants
at least five bases for use of American troops
so that if war beaks out with China, the US
will have the advantage of a shorter distance
to hit China. Besides, for the elucidation of
Bandow, it isnt the Philippines that wants
to wage war against China, but the US that
does.
Bandow is also dead wrong when he
states that the Philippines, long subsidized
and defended by America shows such
ostentatious disrespect and that Rody
should not be treated like a co-equal and ally
if he doesnt behave like one.
America has long defended the
Philippines and worse, has long been
subsidized by the US? Thats crap. US was
the colonizer.US governed the Philippines.
Filipinos were treated as inferiors despite the
fact that they fought with the US during the
war.
Manila was the second worst city
destroyed during WW II but US money was
never poured for its reconstruction. Instead,
money was poured into Japan, that was the
enemy of the US during the world war.
Hell, even the US bases in the country
were rent free for the Americans and for a
100 years. Subsidized by the US? Thats BS.
Bandow himself said the Philippines best
ships are US cast-offs. Big White brother
selling military cast- offs to an ally while
it gives other allies missiles?
He also advises the US government to
junk the Mutual Defense Treaty and the joint
patrols.
Have I got news for Banslow. Duterte
would be so happy if the US abrogates the
treaties and agreements with the Philippines.
But what appears is that which Rody is
really angling for is to expand the Philippine
horizons trade and economic ties with other

countries the US sees as foes. Duterte has


already made it too clear that he doesnt want
war since everybody loses in a war.
He has already made major inroads in
better trade and economic relations with
China, which is said to be interested in
building speed trains and trains, of which are
the very things the country is in dire need,
considering the countrys horrendous traffic
situation, which will worsen in the coming
years, should there be no move to improve
the current traffic situation.
The President seems to be on the right
trade and economic path. And if he has
learned to be diplomatic and drops the cuss
words and insults, one can really say that
indeed, change has come to the President. But
for how long?

Irrigation fee not yet


free NIA
TUGUEGARAO CITY,
Cagayan - Without any
repeal of the provisions
of Republic Act 3601, the
mandatory collection of
irrigation service fees
(ISF) by the National Irrigation Administration
(NIA) would still in effect.
Mac Toribio, NIA information officer, said at
present, neither the senate nor the congress has
amended the said law
which allows NIA to collect ISF from the users of
the irrigation systems to
sustain its operations.
Despite the absence of legal authority
to scarp the irrigation
fees, a number of farmers
in the region are not paying already their obligations to NIA, he said after President Duterte,
during his campaign rallies in May 9 elections,
promised to abolish the
ISF.
Toribio said without
the amendments, farmers
are still obliged to pay
the ISF this year to ensure the continuous operation of the irrigation

systems.
He said NIA collects
the ISF based on the
farmers harvest during
the wet and dry season.
For instance, farmers served by the
agencys diversion water
system are required to
pay the peso equivalent
of two cavans per hectare of harvest during the
wet season, and three
cavans in the dry season, he said.
He said the collected
ISF subsidized the operation costs of the irrigation
systems in the region particularly the PAYMENT of
the pumping stations
electric consumption.
We have major
pumping stations in
Cagayan which generate
an average of P76 million
electric bill alone aside
from other operating costs
and maintenance expenses, Toribio added.
Meanwhile, Toribio is
asking for the full cooperation of the farmers associations in the region in
helping NIA for the responsible payment of
ISFs. Oliver T. Baccay

From the lips of a dying President FERDINAND MARCOS


-Salvador H. Laurel Vice President of the Philippines 1992
I can attest to that. Weak
and already on his
deathbed when I visited
him in Hawaii on February
3, 1989, Marcos personally
asked me to convey to Cory
Aquino his offer to give up
90% of his earthly
possessions to the Filipino
people,
through
a
Foundation which he had
set up, but Cory only would
allow him to die in his own
country and be buried
beside his mother.
I related this incident
in a book Neither
Trumpets Nor Drums,
published in 1992 right after
I ended my term as Vice
President
of
the
Philippines.
Pertinent portions that
book I now quote for the
benefit of those who have
not read it.
One of the most
unforgettable trips I took as
Vice President was my visit
to Honolulu on February 3
and 4 1989.
On February 2nd, at
about 5 p.m., I received an
urgent call from Mrs. Imelda
Romualdez Marcos in
Honolulu. She was sobbing
on the phone. Doy, pwede
ka bang maka-punta rito?
Masama na ang tayo ni
Ferdinand. Gusto kang
kausapin. Baka hindi na
siya magtagal Please, please
come, she pleaded.
Ill have to cancel my
appointments. Maybe I can
go in few days? I asked.
She interrupted me,
Baka hindi mo na siya
abutin. Please come as soon
as possible!
I thought about it. The
cases filed against the
Marcoses had been
pending for three years, yet
nothing had happened.
And the nation remained
fragmented. Perhaps, if I
tried the Lincolnian
approach With malice
toward none, with charity
for all we might be able to
settle the issue and unite

the nation.
Then I remembered
Imeldas plea: Gusto kang
kausapin. Maybe there is a
chance maybe he is ready
to settle?
She first briefed me
about President Marcos
condition that he was
very weak. The doctors who
were attending to him told
me he had a less than 50
percent
chance
of
surviving, that he might not
even last three months.
Then they took me to
the Intensive Care Unit.
I could not recognize
Ferdinand Marcos when I
saw him. The Marcos I
knew was athletic, active,
and articulate. The man I
saw was skin and bones.
About eighty-five pounds.
Imelda
announced
cheerfully: Andy, Andy,
narito na ang Batangueo,
narito na si Doy.
His eyes opened. He
recognized me. He tried to
talk. But only his lips
moved. There was no
sound.
He signaled the nurse
to remove the tube
imbedded in his throat.
The Nurse pulled out
the long tube and asked me
to bend closer so I could
hear. Finally I heard his
voice, very faint, almost a
whisper. Salamat, brod,
nakarating ka. I have
something to tell you.
I interrupted him:
Before you start, Mr.
President, may I ask just
one question?
He nodded.
Why did you call me,
Mr. President? Why me of
all people? I vehemently
oppose you. I was probably
one of those responsible for
your ouster Why Me?
He signaled me to
stop.
Say no more, brod, he
said. I never held that
against you. You did what
you had to do as leader of
the opposition for many

years. You opposed me on


principle, never on
personality. You were
against martial law but you
were noble about it, unlike
some people. Besides, I
cannot forget your father. I
owe him my life, not once
but thrice. Let me talk now.
I have very little time.
Please tell Mrs.
Aquino to stop sending me
her relatives. They are
proposing and asking so
many things. All I want is
to die in my country I will
run over 90 percent of all
my worldly possessions to
our conversation to our
people. I ask only 10
percent for my family.
Just let me die in my
own country. I want to be
buried beside my mother.
His breathing had
become more labored. The
nurse
stopped
our
conversation. He has to
rest not, she said.
Before leaving I told
him: Mr. President, I do
now know if Mrs. Aquino
will listen to me, but I will

try.

I hurried back to
Manila to transmit Marcos
message to President
Aquino. I asked for
anappointment but Cory
would not see me. Here I
was, her own VicePresident, asking only for
three minutes of her time to
convey an important
message
from
her
predecessor, and she would
not see me. I was told by
her Executive Secretary
(Catalino Macaraig) she
was busy. I learned later
that she had allocated an
hour to Tom Cruise, an
American movie star.
In view of her
repeated refusal to see me
and hear what I had to say,
I wrote her a letter dated
February 5, 1989: Since my
arrival yesterday, I have
been trying to get an
appointment with you
*** I hope you will
find time to listen to the
highly
confidential
message of Mr. Marcos
considering its serious

import and far- reaching


consequences upon your
administration and the
nation as a whole.
The next day, Cory
replied:
As to the highly
confidential message from
former President Ferdinand
E. Marcos, I feel that in the
light of your representation
of its serious import and
far-reaching consequences
upon
your
(my)
administration and the
nation as a whole, such
message
should
be
disclosed to the public
rather
than
kept
confidential. This is in
accordance with my
announced policy of
utmost transparency in the
management of the affairs
of the country.
On the same day I
wrote back: I am still
hoping that you will change
your mind and receive
themessage in a private,
non-political, direct, and
unfiltered manner, beyond
any personal and partisan

consideration.
As to your published
suggestion that I share with
the public the highly
confidential information, I
am afraid I am not yet at
liberty to do so considering
that the message was
entrusted to me in
confidence to be delivered
to you personally. Only you
and former President
Marcos can declassify or
disclose this message.
Let us give national
reconciliation and national
stability every chance to
succeed for the sake of our
fragmented
people..
(Neither Trumpets Nor
Drums, at pp 104-111, 1986
ed, Second printing)
I never received any
further reply from Cory.
Corys refusal to receive Marcos message was
perhaps her biggest mistake. Had she studied it
carefully, she could have
settled the Marcos wealth
issue eight years ago. Perhaps we could have paid off
our foreign debt!

Garcia also said the
mining firm might have been
informed of the plan of the
provincial government to

remedies due to its tax delinquencies that will lead to
the auction of their properties based on the provisions
of the Local Government
Code.
This move was also
supported by the provincial
board who will authorize
Provincial Treasurer Rhoda
Moreno for this purpose,
he said.

OGPI operates its gold


and copper mining project
in barangay Didipio in
Kasibu town while it is being opposed by villagers,
anti - mining advocates
and local officials.
Once paid, the RPT
payment will be divided
and classified into 50 percent basic tax and 50 percent Special Education

The basic tax will be
shared as follows: 40 percent for the local government of Kasibu, 35 percent
for the provincial government and 25 percent for the

Una ng nakatanggap ng tawag si Governor Dy mula kay Mayor Derije ng

BAYOMBONG, Nueva
Vizcaya -The provincial
government here is expected
to receive more than P67
million from OceanaGold
Phlippines, Inc. (OGPI) as
payment for its Real Property Taxes (RPT).
Lawyer Voltaire Garcia,
provincial legal officer, said
the amount represents
OGPI's RPT payments for
the year 2015 and 2016.
The provincial government is also waiting for the
court's decision on the interpleader case filed by OGPI
regarding its payment of
more than PHP29 million
and more than P33 million
as RPT payments for the

years 2013 and 2014.


The sudden payment
of OGPI's RPT to the province excludes the RPT for
2013 and 2014 because it is
under protest. So with this
agreement, we are expecting
a continuous payment of
their RPT to the provincial
government, Garcia said.
He said that the RPT
payment of OGPI has been
realized after the company
agreed to a Memorandum of
Agreement (MOA) with the
provincial government.
Garcia said the MOA
requires OGPI to pay its RPT
for 2015 to 2016 and onwards while there is an interpleader case filed includ-

ing the mining firm's acceptance of sole responsibility


to deal with matters that may
arise should there be an opposition move from Quirino
province.
According to Garcia,
OGPI's sudden move to
settle their RPT payments
might have been triggered
by the directive from the
Department of Environment
and Natural Resources
(DENR) why the mining
firm should not be suspended.
OGPI is one of the mining companies included in
the list of mining companies
of DENR to be suspended
