BOBOY ON ‘REKLAMO PUBLIKO’
IS there really conflict of political interest between Cong. Niel “Jun-jun” Tupas Sr. and his brother, Vice Gov. Raul “Boboy” Tupas?
Secret…Hear it from the horse’s mouth. Boboy himself will tell you on Sunday when he appears on our radio/TV talk show Reklamo Publiko.
Simulcast over DyOK Aksyon Radyo-Iloilo and www.panaynewsphilippines.com, the no-holds-barred program starts at 8:45 a.m. at Hotel del Rio, Iloilo City.
RAPE VICTIM MAE ANN GUMBAN
MAE Ann Gumban worked in Boracay after finishing her Hotel and Restaurant Management course.
She just came from her place of work to attend an occasion.
Unknowingly, however, seven evil persons were waiting for her to pass by a dark road.
She was abused, raped and killed mercilessly.
The culprits thought they would not be caught. They believed nobody saw them.
But they were mistaken. One witness saw them.
The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), through special investigator John Katipunan, made a thorough investigative work, studying the bits and pieces of the crime scene and other means of identification on the suspects. And they have been identified.
The case of murder and rape has been filed with the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office against the suspects and in due time a resolution will be filed with the court.
In due time, there will be justice for Mae Ann Gumban.
We thank NBI Investigator John Katipuanan for the job well done.
VP BINAY HAS PROBLEM WITH GOV. ART
VICE President Jejomar Binay, who is now on cloud nine because he thinks he is an unbeatable presidential candidate, told his close friends that his problem in Iloilo is Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr.
“Ayaw n’ya sa akin. At ‘di s’ya pumupunta sa akin (He does not like me. He does not go to me),” the VP was quoted as saying by one of his best friends in Iloilo.
The VP added that in Iloilo, there are already leaders definitely joining him. He mentioned their names – and we know who they are.
Not included in Binay’s list are Cong. Jerry Treñas, Gov. Art, Cong. Art Jr. and Cong. Jun-jun Tupas Jr.
On the other hand, Secretary Mar Roxas is like deep water. Silent.
Primo Nelson Golez “dies-dies” laughing!
CURGING Tirador, the oldest member of the Iloilo Provincial Board, but 10 years younger than his age, delivered a resounding speech before the august body recently.
He demanded that chiefs of Iloilo district hospitals should be reassigned to various districts so as to avoid familiarity and abuses, including graft and corruption.
The speech was well-prepared. Although – considering his advanced age – he often stammered and stuttered.
But his message was clearly elucidated.
Say mo, Teddy?
HOW IS CHIEF SUPT. JOSEPHUS ANGAN?
AFTER several months since he started his stint in Western Visayas as police regional director, many have been asking this column about the performance of Chief Supt. Josephus Angan.
What has he done on illegal drugs?
How is the peace and order situation in the region?
What is his program on hoodlums in uniform?
What new insights he has given to the public insofar as solutions to unresolved crimes are concerned?
What has he done to erring members of police offices in various places of Western Visayas?
We have been receiving many more pertinent questions from the inquisitive public.
Well, frankly and without fear of contradiction, we are sorry to say that we do not know.
NIA REGION 6 OFFICERS
FOR the information of many inquisitive readers, here are the important officials of the National Irrigation Administration (Region 6):
* General Manager Gerardo Corsiga
* Assistant General Manager Ricardo Datoon, and
* Engr. Ricardo Pinaso.
NIA Region 6 is the busiest government agency in Iloilo because of the P12-billion Jalaur River Multi-Purpose Project in Calinog town.
Many contractors are “PR-ring” these officials to get a slice of the big pie, so to speak.
We hope that the slices will be properly distributed to qualified contractors – not only the Manila-based Newington Construction Company.
