Dumaguete closes restobar
for failure to secure permits

The Dumaguete City government yesterday shut down the ZanZibar Restaurant and Lounge for alleged failure to comply with requirements for a mayor's permit and a business permit.

City Administrator William Ablong said the seven-day notice to ZanZibar for them to comply with such requirements under the 1997 Omnibus Tax Ordinance of the city government had already lapsed Wednesday, thus the issuance of a closure order.

Task Force SAGARR, headed by retired police officer Eddie Oira, served the closure order at 6 p.m. at the business establishment, but the operator/owner, identified as Loraie A. Rosal was not around to receive it.

Fama directed to intensify
campaign vs. criminality

The new officer-in-charge of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office assumed office yesterday, even if his order was dated January 8, or two days before the election ban on the transfer, promotion and hiring of government personnel.

Senior Supt. Harris Fama of Class 1990 of the Philippine National Police Academy and Class 228 of the Federal Bureau of Investigation paid a courtesy call on Gov. Roel Degamo at the old session hall of the Capitol in Dumaguete City, accompanied by police chiefs and unit commanders, and Senior Supt. Dionard Carlos, his predecessor, who also made an exit call on the governor, yesterday afternoon.

Degamo received Fama and expressed optimism that he will serve well, based on the credentials he presented, while thanking Carlos for having served the province for six months.
