A minor has filed child abuse charges against three resort personnel, who allegedly beat him up at the Caribbean Waterpark and Resotel in Bacolod City, the police said yesterday.
Shella May Ong, John Ong, and Edgardo Grande, were charged for violation of Republic Act 7610 or the Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act, before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office Wednesday, Senior Insp. Ser Ulrick Christian Gelera, Police Station 8 chief, said.
Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson ruled out politics in the delay of the approval by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of the proposed P500 million loan by the provincial government to fund four major infrastructure projects.
Lacson said the members of the provincial board are just going through the process and are consistent, particularly, when it comes to borrowing of money.
