The complainants claimed that Lemuel Nobleza burned their house after fighting with his wife, and they want them to face liabilities for their actions.

SP calling for
road accessibility
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO

A resolution requesting the City Engineer's Office through the City Mayor's Office to conduct an inventory of detailed engineering works in Purok Riverside, Brgy. Banago, Bacolod City for the provision of accessible roads for residents, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod yesterday.

Bacolod Councilor Wilson Gamboa Jr., who authored the resolution, yesterday said he was informed that the fire victims have started to rebuild their houses in the area. So before they can start to permanently put up their structures, there should be a provision for accessible roads, he said.

Mayor Monico Puentevella said the city will create a road in the area to help fire trucks penetrate the place in case of fire. moremoremore

NORPPO receives request
to transfer Dumaguete CoP
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental received a letter from Dumaguete Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria requesting for the transfer of Supt. Jovito Atanacio, officer-in-charge of the city police, about two months to go before the May elections.

Negros Oriental PNP OIC, Senior Supt. Harris Fama, confirmed the receipt of the letter request to transfer Atanacio seven months after he was assigned in Dumaguete.

Last week, a manifesto was signed by all 108 police officers of the Dumaguete City police in support of the retention of Atanacio, whom they believe is different from the previous chiefs of police in Dumaguete, being a workaholic and is religiously doing his job. moremoremore
