Cash assistance released to 15 former rebels

By 19th Infantry Battalion, 8ID PA
August 24, 2012

BURAUEN, Leyte – Fifteen (15) former rebels who surrendered during last year’s focused military campaign against insurgents received the so called Basic Immediate Assistance (BIA) amounting to P10,000.00 in a ceremony held at Brgy. Roxas, Burauen, Leyte on Aug. 23, 2012.

Lt. Col. Joel Alejandro Nacnac, Commanding Officer of the 19th Infantry (Commando) Battalion disclosed that the BIA recipients were former members of Front Committee-Leyte (FCL), the infamous New Peoples Army group operating in the province of Leyte.

“These FR’s surrendered to 19th IB because they want to live in peace with their family. Indeed, they have made the right decision, because the Philippine Army and the Provincial Government of Leyte are sincere with the peace and development stance so that remnants of NPA rebels fully abandon the armed struggle”, Lt. Col. Nacnac said.

Each FR has its own story to tell. A certain Peter said that he and his comrades would keep on moving from place to place in the hinterlands of Leyte to evade government forces. Unfortunately, he and a comrade were arrested in a checkpoint operation of the Philippine Army. Likewise, a certain Jocelyn, former NPA courier experienced hardships in the underground movement that is why she decided to surrender to 19IB last year.

In behalf of the former rebels, Miguel Payod extended his gratitude to the Provincial Government of Leyte under the leadership of Gov. Carlos Jericho Petilla, to the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office spearheaded by the Mrs. Clotilde Malatbalat and to the Philippine Army who worked together for the reintegration of the FR’s into the mainstream of the society.

Last year, a total of P685,000.00 were released by the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process (OPAPP) through the Provincial Government of Leyte as additional reintegration assistance to fourteen (14) former rebels who surrendered to the military from years 2007 to 2010.

In his message, Gov. Carlos Jericho Petilla who was ably represented by Hon. Carlo Loreto hoped that the basic assistance and livelihood programs in store for the FR’s can also be the foundation of their new lives.

With the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, the Philippine Army’s Bayanihan campaign in the province of Leyte shall intensify to convince rebels to return to the folds of the law.

“PRO8 is committed to run after criminals and have arrested several wanted persons the past weeks for them to face trial in the bars of justice”, PCSUPT Soria said.

On August 20, 2012, elements of Maasin City Police Station led by PINSP Kerwin Sevillano arrested the Number One (1) in the list of Most Wanted Person in the city of Maasin, Southern Leyte.

PCSUPT Soria identified the suspect as one Renato Pero Costillas, 49 years old, single and a resident of Barangay Pananawan, Maasin City. The subject was arrested for the crimes of 2 counts of Attempted Rape; Rape by Sexual Assault in relation to RA 7610, both with a recommended bails of P120,000 and Acts of Lasciviousness with recommended bail P24,000.00 issued by Honorable Ma.

Make barangay execs wage earners – Chiz

By Office of Senator Chiz Escudero
August 23, 2012

PASAY CITY  –  Senator Chiz Escudero wants officials of the country’s 42,000 barangays to be given monthly salaries instead of just honoraria and allowances.

“Dapat naman siguro may sweldo na sila at hindi honorarium lamang. Mas araw-araw ang trabaho nila kaysa sa aming mga senador na four times a week lamang at may pension pa kami pero sa mga nasa barangay ay wala at honorarium lamang,” the senator said.

Escudero has proposed Senate Bill 2868, which would increase the benefits of barangay officials and provide the prevailing minimum wage in the region per month for Sangguniang Barangay members, barangay treasurer, and barangay secretary.

The proposed bill also provides a minimum wage rate plus 20 percent for the barangay captain.

The bill seeks to amend the Local Government Code of 1991, which stipulates that a barangay captain gets a minimum of a P1,000-honorarium per month while other elected barangay officials get P600 per month.

“Our proposal is to significantly increase the monetary compensation being received by barangay officials. It would be the minimum wage rate in the region. If the barangay is rich, they can give more. This is in recognition of the fact that life is difficult nowadays. They are only receiving allowances and honoraria. The problem with allowances and honoraria is we can't use that as basis for pensions and retirement benefits of barangay officials,” Escudero said.

He noted that there are some barangay officials who serve for three terms and sometimes for about 15 to 20 years.

“May tanod na 10 years, day care worker na 15 years nang nagsisilbi. But after they serve the barangay, they receive nothing. It’s simply because they receive allowances and honoraria. If you convert it to salary, at least there is a basis to compute their pension, their retirement benefits,” Escudero said.

While there is a proposal to postpone the coming barangay elections next year, the senator said it is time the government to review the use of barangay funds and come up with a comprehensive law on the election of barangay officials and the budget allotted to barangays.

Barangay elections are scheduled on the first Monday of October 2013, five months after the May mid-term elections. There is a proposal at the House of Representatives, however, to move the barangay election on October 2015.

For his part, Congressman Ben Evardone of the lone district of Eastern Samar, expressed hope that the untimely tragic death of Secretary Robredo “will continue to inspire all of us to continue to implement meaningful reforms in government.”

Congressman Evardone also commended President Benigno S. Aquino III for his determination to rescue and retrieve Secretary Robredo and the two pilots.

Palo Mayor Remedios L. Petilla who is the president of the League of Municipalities in Leyte said Secretary Robredo will “always be a source of inspiration and encouragement to us local government executives, towards honest, sincere and good governance.”

He was a true friend, Mayor Petilla added.

Kananga, Leyte Mayor Elmer Codilla echoed the sentiments of the other government officials saying that Secretary Robredo will always be remembered for his full disclosure policy to achieve excellence in governance.

Meanwhile, Tacloban City Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez faxed his official message stating that, “My fellow Taclobanons join me in extending to the family of the late Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, our deepest sympathy on his untimely demise.”

God in his wisdom took him from us, but his memory will forever remain with us, Mayor Romualdez added.

Mayor Lucia Astorga of the island town of Daram in Samar province said she is grieving the loss of an idol in the person of SILG Robredo while Mayor Emmelly Olaje of Tarangnan told PIA that she is learning a lot of new things about Secretary Robredo after his death.

Revolutionary forces join commemoration of Aquino assassination – CPP

By CPP Information Bureau
August 21, 2012

The revolutionary forces today join the commemoration of the 29th anniversary of the assassination of former Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino on August 21, 1983 masterminded by the Marcos dictatorship and its fascist henchmen.

Aquino was among the several thousand anti-Marcos political oppositionists killed, tortured, imprisoned and abducted during the martial law years from 1972 to 1986.

"Ninoy Aquino's assassination was among the historic watersheds leading to the fall of the US-Marcos dictatorship," said the CPP. "The Aquino assassination further militated the Filipino people. It highlighted the brutality of the US-Marcos dictatorship and spurred the gigantic mass demonstrations of workers, peasants, students, women and different democratic sectors in 1983-1986."

"Ninoy Aquino was among the prominent stalwarts of the anti-Marcos political opposition who touched base with the CPP and consulted the revolutionary mass movement in the struggle against the Marcos dictatorship," said the CPP. "Aquino recognized the revolutionary forces as among the most steadfast in the anti-dictatorship struggle."

"It is an outright distortion of history for certain groups, especially those identified with the ruling Aquino regime (by Ninoy's only son Benigno III), to lay sole claim to the anti-Marcos movement and deny the crucial role played by the CPP and the revolutionary forces in the struggle to end the Marcos dictatorship," said the CPP. "The atrocious claims repeatedly made by the military and certain reactionaries that the NPA, and not Marcos, was behind the August 21, 1971 bombing of the Liberal Party miting de avance in Plaza Miranda form part of such distortion."

"Despite being confronted by Marcos' far larger AFP forces, the CPP reestablished itself in December 1968, organized the New People's Army (NPA) in March 1969, and persisted in underground work and revolutionary armed struggle," said the CPP. "Several years into Marcos' martial law, the US-Marcos dictatorship had failed to stem the growth of the people's armed struggle and had even become the the NPA's biggest recruiter by negative example. The NPA would become the most formidable force delivering the biggest blows against the Marcos dictatorship."

"Before and during martial law, the forces of the national-democratic mass movement led numerous demonstrations against the Marcos dictatorship, including the huge student demonstrations of the First Quarter Storm of 1970, the workers' strikes of 1974 which shattered the terror effect of martial law, the nationwide student demonstrations from 1977 to the early 1980s, the workers strike movement and mass demonstrations from the early 1980s to 1986, and the peasant marches and demonstrations of 1984, among others."

"In the mass uprising of February 1986, national-democratic mass organizations were among the first to march to EDSA and Mendiola and served as the core of four-day million strong demonstrations leading to the ouster of the Marcos dictatorship on February 25," recalled the CPP.





VP Binay lauds rescue of 19 Pinay human trafficking victims; warns jobseekers of unlicensed recruitment agencies

By OVP Media
August 19, 2012

MANILA  –  Vice President Jejomar C. Binay lauded the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the successful rescue of 19 Filipina victims of human trafficking.

Joint elements of the IACAT and PNP rescued 17 women from a night club in Mandaue City Thursday. Three persons were arrested and will be charged with violation of the RA 9208 or the Anti-Trafficking Act of 2003.

Another two were rescued in an operation conducted on July 24-29 by IACAT prosecutor Atty. Jonathan Lledo, PSSupt. Rodilo B. Jocson, and PO3 Erwin Navarro, in cooperation with Interpol Malaysia and the Royal Malaysian Police.

“I am happy to note that our efforts to curb human trafficking our supported by our ASEAN neighbors. I am thankful that we were given full cooperation by the Malaysian government,” the Vice President said.

He said the two victims, who were recruited by a prostitution syndicate operating in Mindanao, are willing serve as state witnesses against the syndicate.

Binay is the chairman emeritus of the IACAT. He is also the concurrent Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ concerns and the chairman of the Presidential Task Force Against Illegal Recruitment (PTFAIR).

The Vice President also congratulated the Philippine Center on Transnational Crime (PCTC) and the Zamboanga Sea-Based Anti-Trafficking Task Force (ZSBATTF) for their continuous monitoring of human trafficking activities in the Zamboanga City Wharf.

PCTC and ZSBATTF offloaded some 85 passengers headed for Malaysia in three separate inspections in July.

“The offloaded passengers came from as far as Cagayan and Ilocos Norte.” Binay said.

As of August 1, the anti-trafficking czar said there have been 11 human-trafficking related convictions with a total of 18 persons convicted.

“This brings to the total number of human trafficking related convictions under President Aquino’s administration to 46 compared to the 29 convictions of the previous administration over a six-year period,” he said.

Moreover, Binay warned potential OFWs not to apply for jobs abroad through recruitment agencies whose licenses have either been revoked or suspended by the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) due to numerous recruitment violations.

Government revoked the licenses of 20 recruitment agencies and suspended 17 others due to violations, said Vice President Jejomar C. Binay.

“Since January, POEA has cancelled the licenses of 20 agencies for premature collection of fees, overcharging, and reprocessing or recycling of job orders. POEA also suspended 17 other agencies for non-issuance of receipts, misrepresentation, falsifying or altering travel documents, deploying workers to employers not accredited by POEA, and failure to deploy workers within the prescribed period without a valid reason.,” Binay said.

Stripped of their licenses were: Taifil Manpower Services, Lucky International Placement Services Inc.; Gold & Green Manpower Management & Development Service; Asahi International Manpower Corp.; Multi System Conexions International Inc.; Prime Stars, and Tria International Recruitment Agency;

Petra Personnel Employment Technical Recruitment Agency; Northwest Placement Inc.; Steadfast International Corp.; Acclaimed One Manpower & Recruitment Services; Bailey Corporation; Hannah International Manpower Services; and Marvic Overseas Placement;

Jerzon Manpower & Trading Corp.; Lucky Zoe International Manpower Agency; Philippine Integrated Labor Assistance; Unlimited Manpower Resources, Inc.; Cerel International Manpower Services Inc.; and Vogue Plus Promotions.

Suspended meanwhile were Alshiera International Manpower Services; Mi Amore International Services Inc.; Goldmine International Recruitment Agency; Awas Manpower Services, and Crown Overseas Placement Inc.;

Vogue Plus Promotion; Wavex Management; Morland Overseas Manpower; Asmara International; Emissary Recruitment; Richfield Overseas; Tessa Recruitment; Solidworks Manpower; First Cosmopolitan; PVE Placement; and Worldgoal Corporation.

“I appeal to our kababayans to be careful in accepting job offers abroad. Go through the proper channels and processes. This is the only way that you could protect yourself from illegal recruiters and human traffickers,” Binay said.
