      BM sues governor for P10M intel mess    


A member of the provincial board has filed a complaint against the Governor before the Ombudsman alleging that the provincial executive of the province caused the disbursement of P10Million last year, for use as his intelligence fund, even if there was no specific appropriation by the board for such item.

On the other hand, Governor Roel Degamo , countered by saying that intelligence fund is part and parcel of the annual operation of the province . But a politically opposed provincial board instead, inserted such item into different items in the budget but just the same, it was used for what was intended as intelligence fund, the Governor said thru counsel Atty Richard Enojo.

BM Melliemore “Butsoy” Saycon who filed the case against Gov. Degamo et al., also implicated in his complaint, budget officer Marichu Alpuerto; provincial treasurer Danilo Mendez; and provincial accountant Teodorico Reyes for allegedly causing the release of such unappropriated fund of P10-million.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   

After decades of existence since time imme morial, the word Bilibid has finally reached the level of becoming the school or an institute for better criminals. This is where crude methods of criminality are improved, fine-tuned and spread around the nation.

Today, sending an inmate from the province to the new Billibid Prison or the national penitentiary in Muntinglupa (small world) after serving his or her term will acquire a higher criminal degree and would be the mentor in the provinces when they return. (if they are not killed)

President Aquino should now order his Justice Department to make a top-to-bottom revamp of the jail industry which has now become partners with big criminal syndicates in the shabu industry. In fact, it is said that the national shabu distribution emanates form Bilibid prison.

Today, money is transacted online, no more by hand. Even a cell phone can transmit and transact by the millions of pesos in money transfers. Justice among criminals is swift, unlike the law of the just. The criminals’ due process is death; while the just and law abiders take years to convict.

The Ozone disco tragedy of 126 dead in that flary disco fire TEN YEARS AGO was just decided this week and convicted the building owners. The AMPATUAN murder five years ago, has not even reached arraignment stage.

EDITORIAL  
   


As if by coincidence, as the City marks its 66th charter anniversary tomorrow and annual religious fiesta the next day, the City of Dumaguete , known as the city of gentle people , has deservedly earned what it always aspired for: to remain and retain its rustic ambience, and now, has been declared by world tourism stakeholders as among the best affordable places to retire as of this year and the next.

Over the years, city administrators have refused, if not declined, to grow and expand in vertical terms. But the city has strived to keep its rustic ambience so that people will keep coming back. And rightly so, thousands of migrants have decided to make Dumaguete their new home.
