The manager of a gasoline station was stabbed dead following an altercation but his assailant was also killed when the security guard on duty shot him early Friday morning in Barangay Calindagan, Dumaguete City.

Police identified the fatalities as Michael Mena, manager of the Fil Oil gas station and a resident of Barangay Bagacay, and Apolonio Saringgan, 47, of Barangay Tabuctubig.

Police reports said that the Dumaguete police station received a call around 3:30 a.m. about a shooting incident at the Fil Oil gas station, where a resto-bar, Food Net, is also located.

Central Visayas lacks centers
to rehabilitate juvenile offenders

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Non-government organizations are calling attention to the lack of rehabilitation centers for juvenile offenders in the Central Visayas.

Cheryl Cabutihan, Child's Rights Protection Unit project coordinator of the Children's Legal Bureau, has said the government needs to address this lack before amending the Juvenile Justice Act of 2006, a press statement from the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc., said.

Cabutihan reportedly said during a radio program that there is a need to check if international standards, including putting up juvenile centers are complied with. She asked how people will say that the Juvenile Justice Act of 2006 did not work when there was no chance given for the children in conflict with the law to be rehabilitated.

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Negros Oriental provincial police director, Senior Supt. Edward Carranza, has directed police chiefs in all towns and cities to review and update their lists of the ten most-wanted persons in their areas.

Dumaguete police chief, Supt. Leo Tolentino, said Carranza gave the directive during a command conference with station commanders in line with the orders of Philippine National Police Region 7 director, Chief Supt. Marcelo Garbo.

Garbo, who assumed the position of Chief Supt. Ager Ontog, Monday in Cebu City, said his priority programs and projects include the arrest of wanted persons in his area.
