BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Sugar Alliance of the Philippines said yesterday that it will take legal action against the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Department of Finance if they insist on taxing raw sugar.
The BIR and the DOF are prohibited from implementing Revenue Regulations No. 13-2013, “Amending Section 2 (b) of Revenue Regulations No. 13-08, Relative to the Definition of Raw Sugar for Value Added Tax Purposes”, the SAP in a statement (see page 8) said.

BY GILBERT BAYORAN
SAGAY CITY – The Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office will get more support and assistance as the income of the province is getting better and increasing, Gov. Alfredo Marañon, who was the guest of honor at police graduation rites, said Saturday.
The governor turned over assorted combat gear and equipment to the newly-graduated trainees of the Urban Counter Revolutionary Warfare Course, who will form part of the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit of NOPPO.
Of the 92 student-trainees who are assigned at the NOPPO Public Safety Company, 6th Special Action Battalion and 6th Regional Public Safety Battalion, only 84 managed to survive the rigid training supervised by the police elite Special Action Force, headed by Supt. Mario Baquiran.

Central Visayas to
remain insurgency-free: CentCom
Maj. Gen.l Nicanor Vivar, newly-installed commander of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Central Command (CentCom) based in Camp Lapu-Lapu in Barangay Lahug, Cebu City, vowed to help Central Visayas provinces maintain their insurgency-free status.
Vivar made the assurance to Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III during a courtesy call at the Cebu Capitol recently.
The AFP CentCom declared Cebu and Bohol provinces insurgency-free in 2009. On May 31 this year, the Regional Peace and Order Council 7 also announced that Siquijor is free of insurgents, and Negros Oriental is “on its way” to becoming insurgency-free..
