oppose death penalty
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
Majority of the participants in the community-based dialog on the proposed restoration of the death penalty, organized by the Commission on Human Rights, in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, expressed their opposition to its revival, CHR provincial chief Romeo Baldevaronasaid yesterday.
Only the representatives of the Muslim community supported its restoration, Baldevarona said.
The Pax Christi Institute in Bacolod City, in a statement it issued, strongly rejected the re-imposition of the death penalty, noting that there is no guarantee that there will be no wrongful convictions, or miscarriage of justice, in the present justice system in the country.

Woman kills cop hubby
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The Dumaguete City police is preparing parricide charges against the wife of a police officer, who reportedly accidentally shot dead her husband yesterday.
Police Officer 3 Jay Samson Jardenico, 37, of Block 8, Lot 123 of Sto. Rosario Heights in Barangay Junob, Dumaguete City, sustained a fatal gunshot wound in the chest that hit his heart, following a heated argument with his wife, Kenya Nocete Jardenico.
Initial investigation showed the couple already had disagreements while attending a party, so Kenya went home ahead on board their Pajero, and then went back to the party to fetch her husband. .
