A police officer and seven others are now facing multiple charges for the abduction and torture of a taxi driver, and the buy-bust operation at 1st Street in Purok Paghida-et, Barangay 17 in Bacolod City, Saturday.
Charged were Police Officer 2 Donbert Viñas, Jodan Vasquez, Theonick Dioso, “alias Dindo”, “alias Nene”, Jeffany Nene alias “Pane”, and two John Doe's, Chief Insp. Dianne Grace Catedral, Bacolod City Police Office public information officer, said yesterday.
Three police officers assigned at the San Carlos City Police Station in Negros Occidental have tested positive for the use of illegal drugs.
The results came from the annual random drug testing conducted by the Philippine National Police to cleanse its ranks of men-in-uniform who may be hooked on illegal drugs, Senior Supt. William Señoron, officer-in-charge of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, said yesterday.
Señoron said the three police officers are up for relief at the San Carlos City Police Station, pending confirmatory tests by the PNP Crime Laboratory. Until then, they will be temporarily assigned at the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office headquarters.

DSWD warns politicians vs.
using 4Ps to get votes
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Corazon Soliman has issued a stern warning against persons, including politicians, who will take advantage of the programs of government for their own vested interests.
Soliman was told an unnamed politician in Negros Oriental had forewarned beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program that their names will be removed from the list if the politician will not win in the May elections, as if he owns the program.
She stressed that nobody, not even the President, can remove a 4Ps beneficiary from the list, but the concerned beneficiary himself or herself for failure to comply with the conditions set by government.
