Binay won't win
in Negros - guv
‘He's campaigning prematurely'

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that Vice President Jejomar Binay will definitely not win in Negros in the 2016 presidential election.

If Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas decides to run for president in 2016, the governor said he believes that he will garner more votes than his overwhelming numbers in Negros Occidental in 2013 when he ran for vice president.

The governor also said “Negrenses do not need Viagra, maybe it is only Binay who needs Viagra.”

The governor was reacting to statements made by Binay Thursday at the start of his three-day sorties in Negros Occidental.moremoremore

No whitewash in probe
on alleged slay attempt

Senior Supt. Dionardo Carlos, officer in charge of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office, assured yesterday there will be no whitewash in the investigation by the NOPPO of the alleged attempted killing of a suspected drug pusher, by purported police personnel.

He stressed the NOPPO will let the Commission on Human Rights and its special investigator, Jess Cañete, “do the talking first”, even as Carlos added he already started a parallel and independent investigation on the attempt on the life of Romeo Amoma Jr.

Amoma, 32, of Barangay Taclobo, Dumaguete City, had sought the assistance of the CHR in seeking justice for what he believes was a plot to kill him, allegedly by members of the PNP's Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group on Dec. 14, 2014. .moremoremore
