The Regional Trial Court Branch 44 dismissed yesterday the civil case filed against Bacolod Rep.

The case was filed by Miguel Carriedo, Jesus Lazaro, Ben Solilapsi, Allan Calilan and Abraham Tingson, against Leonardia et al.

Joselito Bayatan, counsel of Leonardia, yesterday said that during the hearing he manifested that the civil case is related to the six criminal and six administrative cases filed before the Office of the Ombudsman and an audit case before Commission on Audit that were earlier dismissed by the court and the COA after both found no anomaly or irregularity in the contract. moremoremore

Degamo won't step down
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Hundreds of people from different walks of life in Negros Oriental trooped to the Capitol yesterday morning to throw their support to re-elected Gov. Roel Degamo, following a radio announcement that he was no longer the province's chief executive.

Some of the supporters blocked the main entrance to the Capitol while some tricycles also parked in front of the building's steps as the numbers increased by the hour.

A tricycle even had a public address system over which some people took turns speaking out their sentiments regarding the supposed dismissal of the governor.moremoremore
