Bacolod mayor explains
unliquidated accounts
BY MARK L. GARCIA

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the local government unit is doing everything about the unliquidated and unreconciled accounts of the city reported by the Commission of Audit, noting that most of the LGUs in the country have this kind of “epidemic”.

Leonardia told the DAILY STAR that it is not only Bacolod but almost 94 percent of LGUs in the Philippines are experiencing the problem which is quite difficult to solve, since it already includes accumulated accounts from the previous administrations.

Earlier this month, COA released its 2017 Financial Report where it stipulated that Bacolod has “unliquidated” and “unreconciled” accounts close to P2 billion. moremoremore


‘Martial Law prevails in Negros’
BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Despite the absence of its formal declaration, Martial Law is now in effect in Negros, Juanito Magbanua, spokesperson of the Apolinario Gatmaitan Command recently claimed.

Magbanua, reportedly the head of the NPA Regional Command in Negros, alleged that the Armed Forces of the Philippines has been adamant in its scheme to escalate the counterrevolutionary armed campaign against the revolutionary movement and the people in different parts of the country, including Negros, under its Oplan Kapayapaan.

This, he further claimed, was followed by the series of killings of several activists and peasant leaders, as militarization in the countryside was intensified after the arrival of two infantry units, the 15th and 94th Infantry Battalions, with psy-war operations becoming widespread through its triad operations involving combat, intelligence, and civil military operations. moremoremore
