Chief Supt. Conrado Capa, Negros Island police director, yesterday vowed not to spare anybody in the anti-drug campaign, even government officials, in the region, if there are any.
“There should be no sacred cow, otherwise the campaign will be meaningless”, Capa said.
“Trial by publicity!”
That was the reaction of Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella yesterday to the order of suspension meted him by the Office of the Ombudsman for delaying the administrative suspension of two building officials because he claimed he has not received a copy.

TRO vs. dismissal
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
An elated Gov. Roel Degamo last night told his supporters holding vigil at the Capitol in Dumaguete City that he has secured a temporary restraining order from the Court of Appeals against the dismissal resolution of the Office of the Ombudsman.
He called on Capitol employees and officials to attend the flag-raising ceremony at 8 a.m. today when he will announce the details of the TRO and the next actions he would take.
Degamo has been holed up at his office at the Capitol since Friday last week, after Department of Interior and Local Government Negros Island Region OIC director, Margie Biligan, served a copy of the dismissal order at past 4 p.m..
