Judge: Warrantless arrest
of Korean national illegal

The warrantless arrest of a Korean national in Boloc-boloc, Sibulan town in Negros Oriental, May 29, by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation has been ruled as illegal by Judge Neciforo Enot of the Regional Trial Court Branch 44.

Enot ordered the release Thursday of Kim Hye Jung from detention at Dumaguete Police Station, after findings showed that NBI agent Ido Salvador Trasmonte and his group had no personal knowledge that she had committed the crime of serious illegal detention filed by security guard Lowell Balasabas and companion Francis Docto in the Korean compound in Boloc-boloc, Sibulan.

Man survives
‘drugs-related’ shooting


Police are still investigating the motive for the shooting of a man Thursday night in Dumaguete City, in what they believe to be related to the illegal drugs problem.

Supt. James Goforth, Dumaguete police chief, identified the victim, who survived the attack as Jeremy Abregana, of legal age, and who was on his way to his mother’s home in Motong, when he was shot at around 9:20 p.m. Thursday.

Initial police investigation showed that two unidentified suspects riding in tandem on a motorcycle rode up to Abregana along E.J. Blanco Street Extension, fired at him and fled.
