Ombudsman ok's raps,
suspension of NBI men

NBI officials yesterday said they were surprised by the Deputy Ombudsman for the Visayas' approval of the filing of charges against three of them for the delay in the delivery of a detained person to the proper judicial authorities in violation of Article 125 of the Revised Penal Code.

The three named were former Bacolod NBI chief Ferdinand Lavin, special investigator Syrus Aluzan and intelligence officer Jose Henry Arellano.

The Ombudsman's ruling is in connection with a case filed by Eddie Fortunado, a Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade member, who is among those accused for the murder of Kabankalan Judge Henry Arles in 2012.

Ceasefire vs.
political insults urged

Former Negros Occidental Gov. Rafael Coscolluela yesterday appealed for a ceasefire from harsh insults over Facebook and the media among candidates for the 2016 polls and their supporters, in the spirit of Christmas.

No one is winning, the people are tired of these verbal tussles, and the campaign period has not started yet, he said.

“After the Christmas and New Year celebrations we could then focus more on issues, programs platforms rather than just personalities,” he said. .moremoremore

Silliman signs P100M
solar generation deal

Silliman University in Dumaguete City and First Solar Orion Energy Solutions Inc., one of the largest producers of solar power in the world, inked an agreement yesterday for an estimated P100-million solar power generation on campus.

SU president Ben Malayang III and Orion president Rynor Jamandron signed the agreement for the prototyping of the first-ever and largest solar power generation project at the institutional level.

The project will be at no cost to Silliman, except to provide the space requirements, Malayang said, with Orion, being the developer and supplier, to undertake the installation, maintenance and supply of solar power energy. moremoremore
