Two more lawyers next targets for killing?

President Arnel Lapore of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Negros Occidental Chapter yesterday said that the legal community is threatened because there are spreading reports in the grapevine of two more lawyers who are being targeted.

“I just quoted former IBP president Ike Tabino, who heard it from the grapevine,” Lapore said.

This was after the death of lawyer Rafael Atotubo, who was gunned down in broad daylight while notarizing documents in his makeshift workplace in front of his house in Barangay 20, Bacolod City on August 23. moremoremore

Negrense entrepreneurs urged
to expand, upscale businesses
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry president, Ma. Alegria “Bing” Sibal-Limjoco, urged Negrense entrepreneurs to expand and upscale their businesses, saying it is high time for them to invest with the national economy consistently growing since the past years.

Sibal-Limjoco told the DAILY STAR yesterday that there is so much opportunities recently for the Philippines as almost 65 percent of Filipinos are already working, thus contributing to the economy.

“With our growth rate averaging six percent in roughly the past 10 years, and with the country’s golden age of infrastructure through the government’s Build, Build, Build program, we should take advantage of the situation and participate to maintain the growth,” she said.
