Their lawyer Karol Joseph Chiu said yesterday that the warrants of arrest do not mean the vice mayor and her husband, Felix Mathias Segundo FeriaYulo III, are guilty of the charges filed against them, the trial of the case has not even started.

‘NFA rice in NegOcc pest-free’
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The National Food Authority-Negros Occidental assured its consumers that the imported NFA rice sold in the province is free of infestation and chemical contamination, as it went through quality safety standards, from unloading to distribution to retailers.

Provincial manager Frisco Canoy said yesterday that the rice stocks allocated for the province have undergone fumigation and aeration for almost a week before it was unloaded from the vessel carrier, MV Unison, to ensure that there will be no pest infestation, like weevils or “bukbok”.

This was after reports came out that about 330,000 bags of imported NFA rice unloaded in Subic port were found to be infested by weevils, due to inclement weather.
