The Commission on Elections will entertain tips on the presence of armed groups operating in Negros Occidental given by persons who wish to remain anonymous, Elections Provincial Supervisor Jessie Suarez said yesterday.
Anyone who has knowledge of armed groups in their areas is encouraged to report their presence directly to the Comelec, so the PNP and Army can be directed to conduct investigations, he said.
Twenty-five Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries are appealing for help from the previous owner, the Arroyo family, led by former first gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo, and concerned government agencies in their effort to reclaim disputed lands in Hacienda Bacan, Barangay Guintubhan in Isabela town.
“We feel oppressed by the slain Fifth District Board Member Renato Malabor's wife Araceli,” an ARB who asked not to be identified, claimed.
