DOJ urged to act on
tax evasion raps
To ensure the success of the government's campaign against tax evaders, Senator Francis Escudero yesterday urged the Department of Justice to prioritize the cases already pending with the courts, a press release from his office said.
Escudero said that 36 tax evasion raps have been filed before the DOJ since the Aquino administration launched its campaign to run after tax cheats last year, but indictments have yet to be handed down.
"The only way that tax evaders will see that the government is serious about this issue is when they see that cases are actually being filed in courts…," Escudero explained.
held at SM City
The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration held a Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar at the Global Pinoy Center of SM City Bacolod recently, the press release from the mall said.
OWWA regional director Samuel Madrid said the recruitment agencies based in Bacolod agreed to conduct a PDOS in the city every Wednesday, beginning April 6 so overseas-bound workers from Negros Occidental and Bacolod City no longer have to travel to Iloilo City.
Seventeen Overseas Filipino Workers attended the PDOS conducted by Overseas Workers Welfare Officer Reynold Pigar.
