Solon files raps vs.
5 for hiking rival's votes

Congressman-elect Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday said he has filed administrative and criminal complaints against the Kabankalan City assessor, two principals, and two poll tabulators for allegedly increasing the votes of his opponent in the last election.

Alvarez won the sixth congresional seat with 70,150 votes, while his opponents Jesus Manuel Dabao had 46, 341 votes and George Lopez had 1,685.

He said he was filing the complaints as a deterrent so that those tasked with safeguarding the election returns do not resort to changing the results again in the future. Named in the complaints filed by Alvarez were members of the Kabankalan City Board of Canvassers - City Assessor Roger Gasataya and principals Bernadin Bendo and Socia Coca, and tabulators Nick Reyes and Hilda Ducanes, Alvarez said. moremoremore

1 of two nabbed
rebels released


The police yesterday released one of the alleged leaders of the New People's Army who were arrested at a checkpoint in Talisay City on June 12, in the absence of any arrest warrant against him, after he was interrogated by his captors.

Senior Supt. Pedro Merced, 6th Regional Mobile Group director, said they had to release Arturo Fabiona, alias Ka Turing and Kim, at about 5 p.m. yesterday, because he has no pending arrest warrant.

Fabiona was initially reported by the police as the intelligence officer of the Komiteng Rehiyonal- Negros, and a political officer of the New People's Army Larangan Gerilya 6 in northern Negros. Merced, however, said Marvin Mata who was listed in the order of battle of the military as deputy secretary of KR- Negros, commander of the NPA Regional Operational Command and head of its liquidation unit, will not be released, as he was denied bail by the court for robbery-in-band charges. moremoremore
