No sacred cows in NIR
anti-drugs drive – Capa


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.

The Police Regional Office 18 reported to have neutralized the illegal trade of four drug lords in Negros island, and arrested 319 drug pushers from January to May this year.

Monico to seek
ombudsman probe

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.

Puentevella said he will bring the matter to the attention of the Ombudsman so it will investigate people in its office who tried to tamper documents to be used against him.
