Bato says ‘sorry'

Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa yesterday apologized for urging hundreds of drug users and pushers in Bacolod City Thursday to kill drug lords and burn down their houses.

De La Rosa said he was sorry for his emotional outburst that was uttered in anger over the state of the drug users he saw while in Bacolod.

“Do you want to kill them? Kill them. You are allowed to kill since you are the victims,” de la Rosa had told about 1,300 drug dependents at a “Pagtipon Para sa Pagbag-o (A Gathering for Change)” at the BAYS Center in Bacolod City. . moremoremore

Gov't, reds agree to
indefinite truce

OSLO, Norway - The Philippine government and Communist guerrillas yesterday signed an indefinite ceasefire deal to facilitate peace talks aimed at ending one of Asia's longest-running insurgencies.

"This is a historic and unprecedented event ... (but) there is still a lot of work to be done ahead," President Rodrigo Duterte's peace adviser, Jesus Dureza, said at a signing ceremony in Norway, which is mediating the talks.

Both sides agreed to implement unilateral, indefinite ceasefires -- something that has never been achieved before in the peace process. moremoremore

Degamo still governor
with lapse of 60-day TRO

“I am still your governor until such time the Supreme Court says I am not,” Gov. Roel Degamo said in response to renewed calls for the Department of Interior and Local Government to enforce the dismissal order of the Ombudsman, following the expiration of the 60-day Temporary Restraining Order granted him, on Tuesday.

Degamo explained the Court of Appeals has denied the petition of June Vincent Gaudan, the DILG and the Ombudsman to grant him a permanent injunction. Instead, it issued an order submitting the case for resolution.

He assured the Negrenses that there is no vacuum to speak of because the TRO remains enforceable, unless lifted or extended..
