City Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog told the Regional Trial Court this morning that he is not a "swindler" who "siphoned" funds donated by the UPS Foundation for the conduct of English language proficiency training programs for public school teachers in the years 2007-2009. Mabilog, who filed a libel complaint against me, said the transaction was between private entities and that I had no business digging into how P2 million which UPS Foundation gave to H.A.L.I.G.I. Foundation for this training program. He took the witness stand as the complainant-witness to affirm his judicial affidavit which served as his direct testimony. Upon cross-examination, Mabilog insisted that everything about the program was above-board, and every centavo given by UPS Foundation was recorded and properly accounted for. Mabilog admitted that he was the Chief Finance Officer of the H.A.L.I.G.I.

Kuratong Baleleng is an organized crime syndicate in the Philippines that once was an anti-communist vigilante group. They received nationwide attention due to their alleged end in a shootout with the Police on May 1995 in Quezon City. The group was originally established by the Philippine military in 1986 to guard against the spread of communist guerrillas in Misamis Occidental, Zamboanga del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur provinces. The first leader, chosen directly by the military, was Ongkoy Parojinog, who allegedly used the group both for its expressed purpose as well as to conduct illegal activities. Parojinog was later killed by Philippine soldiers. When the group was officially disbanded in 1988, they continued to operate as an organized crime syndicate. Over time, the group grew, with other gangs using the name Kuratong Balelang to cover their own activities. Eventually, the group splintered into multiple, smaller groups headquartered in various cities around the region. The groups are involved in a ...
Alcoholism, drug addiction valid grounds for legal separation January 16, 2014 8:07 pm Persida Acosta Dear PAO, I married my high school sweetheart. I tried to understand him but I can no longer take how selfish and irresponsible he is. We have been married for more than 10 years now but he still has not maintained a stable job and he has not quit his vices. He is an alcoholic and, although he does not admit it, I know he has become addicted with prohibited drugs. I am thinking of leaving him for good. Is there a way for me to do this legally? Carlota Dear Carlota, The Family Code (FC) of the Philippines states that, “husbands and wives are obliged to live together, observe mutual love, respect and fidelity, and render mutual help and support” (Article 68). Nevertheless, our laws recognize several grounds which may sever the marital ties or permit the spouses to live separately from each other. In the situation that you have presented before us, we submit that you may file a petition for legal separat ...

At the outset, we find it necessary to state our concurrence on the assumption of jurisdiction by the Regional Trial Court of Manila, Branch 9. The trial court rightly ruled on the application of Philippine law, thus: Neither can the Court determine whether the termination of the plaintiff is legal under the Singapore Laws because of the defendant's failure to show which specific laws of Singapore Laws apply to this case. As substantially discussed in the preceding paragraphs, the Philippine Courts do not take judicial notice of the laws of Singapore. The defendant that claims the applicability of the Singapore Laws to this case has the burden of proof. The defendant has failed to do so. Therefore, the Philippine law should be applied.4 Respondent Court of Appeals acquired jurisdiction when defendant filed its appeal before said court.5 On this matter, respondent court was correct when it barred defendant-appellant below from raising further the issue of jurisdiction.6

NO SUCH A THING AS FAIR JUDGE IN THIS COUNTRY? I was shocked to learn that Presiding Judge Andres N.

Last Christmas, he was seen giving gifts to all prisoners of the City Jail who have cases in his court. And he is the only judge doing that in General Santos City. Judge Lorenzo who was appointed at his post in 2007 has been reputed to be fair and speedy in handling his cases and, above all, a judge who has not been bribed as I heard from fellow lawyers who have experienced fighting for their cases in his sala. I do not know the reasons why he filed his optional retirement. I hope it is not illness but for grander endeavors that will give even a little help to this present justice system that gives false hopes for justice. I am affected by his retirement because nobody would hear the motion I filed for the reconsideration of his determination of probable cause, whose hearing . ...

By TODD PITMAN Associated Press Jul 6, 2013, 10:36 AM Their bones are scattered in blackened patches of earth across a hillside overlooking the wrecked Islamic boarding school they once called home. Smashed fragments of skulls rest atop the dirt. A shattered jaw cradles half a set of teeth. And among the remains lie the sharpened bamboo staves attackers used to beat dozens of people to the ground before drowning their still-twitching bodies in gasoline and burning them alive. The mobs that March morning were Buddhists enraged by the killing of a monk. The victims were Muslims who had nothing to do with it — students and teachers from a prestigious Islamic school in central Myanmar who were so close to being saved. In the last hours of their lives, police had been dispatched to rescue them from a burning compound surrounded by swarms of angry men. And when they emerged cowering, hands atop their heads, they only had to make it to four police trucks waiting on the road above. It wasn't far to go — just ...

In a court trial, a lawyer called his first witness who happens to an elderly grandmother, to the stand, he went to her and ask, "Mama popompo" do you know me? She responded; yes, i do know you Mr I've known you since you were a young boy, and to be frank, you have been a disapointment to your parents and to the society,you are a liar, you cheat people including your wife.you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs, you think you are a big man when you don't even have brain and manners, yes' i know u!.. The lawyer was stunned, not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and ask again; Mama popompo" do you know the defence lawyer? She replied; yes i do, i've known Mr since he was a young boy too, he has been your very good friend because the two of you have the same character. He has also been a very lazy man and he has a drinking problem. Infact he is a criminal, he can't even build a normal relationship with anyone, his law pratice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not ...
New Urgency to Talks With M23 Rebels Aaron Hall and Sasha Lezhnev — There is a new urgency to the latest round of talks in Kampala between the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo and its foes in the M23 rebel group. For several months the parties have been going around in circles on issues ranging from from a comprehensive political transition to the building of supermarkets in eastern Congo. However, the current talks come just before a United Nations force with a broader mandate begins operations. The Kampala talks encompass several elements of previously failed peace processes in the region. Notably, local civil society is not participating, and the underlying causes of the conflict are not being addressed. Moreover, the M23 is attempting to use the talks as the last available vehicle to circumvent accountability for rebellion and war crimes, and Rwanda likely wants to ensure that M23 officers stay in the Kivus. M23 may try to cut a deal to protect its top leaders, maintaining an impunity ...

Another installment of our local soap opera, "Pena vs. PNP." This round appears to have gone in his corporate interest's favor (at least for now), as the friendly RTC Judge (the 2nd local one that he inveigled to become involved in what originally is a case before a court in Manila) has issued a TRO against the final revocation of any firearm licenses. Judge halts revocation of licenses for 74 guns THROUGH WRIT OF PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION BY CARLA GOMEZ Assisting Judge Manuel Cardinal Jr. of the Bago City Regional Trial Court Branch 62 has granted a writ of preliminary injunction preventing the enforcement of an order cancelling the licenses of 74 firearms seized from the ancestral house of former Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña in Barangay Ubay, Pulupandan, the ownership of which is being claimed by four firms.

Posted Friday, February 25, 2011 Haitian Senator Joseph Lambert, most likely to be arrested by U.S. D.E.A. agents By Yves A. Isidor. Wehaitians.com executive editor NASHUA, NH, Feb. 25 - Two agents of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) met privately Thursday morning, according to a longtime, high placed credible source who spoke to Wehaitians.com early Friday on the customary condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the case and feared for his life and those of his immediate family members, with Haiti's Justice Minister, Paul Denis, demanding that Haitian Senator Joseph Lambert, who has long been repeatedly accused of trafficking in narcotics, his parliamentary immunity be removed indefinitely. Like in many other international relations cases involving, for example accredited United Nations' ambassadors who put an end to the living bodies of other human beings in New York City while driving their automobiles under the influence of alcohol, Mr. Lambert, who until rec ...
The IB Bloopers 100s of innocent men and women have died in scores of bomb blasts and gun fire attacks all across our country in the last two decades. To name a few of them, we have had the attack on the Parliament in 2001, Akshardham attack in 2002, Mumbai and Delhi serial blasts and of course the massive attack of 26/11 on Mumbai. The IB which is the premier intelligence agency to provide information about all the threats to the internal security in the country for the prevention of violent attacks has obviously failed to do so resulting in the enormous loss of life and property. In fact there is hardly any single instance where a major attack was detected or prevented by the IB or the other security agencies connected with it. Nay, we are wrong! IB has successfully prevented four 'terrorist attacks' in Gujarat which had 'targeted' Mr Modi and had successfully liquidated all the 'terrorists'. It doesn't really matter for IB whether all the four have now been proven to be fake. We have to therefore from ...

Nigeria: Drums of war and disintegration Posted on Sunday, July 7th, 2013 By Emma Maduabuchi Assistant Politics Editor, Sunday From the time of amalgamation of Northern and Southern Protectorates of Nigeria in 1914, there have been contestations. There have been desires, and accompanying arguments of those seeking the transformation of the country into a huge nation state that would become the pride of all Africans anywhere in the world. The desires and arguments have however been clashing with that of those who insist that such lofty expectations should not be reason for coercing peoples of different historical and cultural backgrounds into one country without seeking their consent and understanding. However, in our dispensation, and for some time now, a lot of statements have been made and actions taken which seem to suggest that the existence of the country as one indivisible and indissoluble whole is seriously threatened. The first sign indicative of this was a recent statement made by David Mark, the ...

I LOVE JESUS From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. — Psalm 61:2 N.I.V. When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. Most of us know what it is to be overwhelmed in heart; emptied as when a man wipes a dish and turned it upside down; submerged and thrown on our beam ends like a vessel mastered by the storm. Discoveries of inward corruption will do this, if the Lord permits the great deep of our depravity to become troubled and cast up mire and dirt. Disappointments and heart-breaks will do this when billow after billow rolls over us, and we are like a broken shell hurled to and fro by the surf. Blessed be God, at such seasons we are not without an all-sufficient solace, our God is the harbor of weather-beaten sails, the hospice of forlorn pilgrims. Higher than we are is he, his mercy higher than our sins, his love higher than our thoughts. It is pitiful to see men putting their trust in something l ...

From my friends in the Free Egyptians party that I helped in 2011 (sorry long post) Free Egyptians Party: What Happened on June 30th in Egypt was a Revolution The Egyptian revolution on June 2013 has been tagged and criticized by many Western news media as a military coup. This comes to most Egyptians as a grave concern and is viewed by many of them as a biased position. The Free Egyptians party strongly opposes this view and considers the popular uprising that spanned across the whole country a true revolution. First, the uprising came on the heels of a very democratic process that saw more than 22 million Egyptian adults sign a petition entitled "Rebel" requesting Morsi to step down and calling for snap elections. Second, in the last 4 days, since June 30th, more than 30 million Egyptians marched in all squares and streets of Egypt and called for the removal of Morsi and the immediate trial of his regime and the Moslem Brothers. The numbers of Egyptians on the streets represented 3 times the number of v ...
Comrades, below is a story that has appeared in today's Post Newspaper based on an interview I gave them. Mandela didn't forgive people against corruption - Kabimba By Moses Kuwema JUSTICE minister Wynter Kabimba yesterday differed with Rupiah Banda over the former president's approach to reconciliation with former leaders. On Wednesday, Banda, who is facing corruption charges, said leaders should emulate Nelson Mandela's reconciliatory and loving spirit if the world was to become a better place to live in. But Kabimba said Mandela did not forgive people against corruption but against discrimination. "That's the reconciliation that Mandela fought for. He did not forgive people against corruption, that's the difference. The whites had not stolen from the blacks. They had not dipped their long fingers into the national treasury of South Africa. If anything, they tried to develop that country, that's the difference. Mr Rupiah Banda is facing allegations of corruption and I don't think that any leader elected ...

Facing jail, protest leader Navalny condemns Putin's Russia Protest leader Alexei Navalny said on Friday he would destroy the political system under President Vladimir Putin that was "sucking the blood out of Russia", after state prosecutors demanded he be jailed for six years on theft charges. Navalny says the trial, in the industrial city of Kirov, is intended to sideline him as a potential rival to Putin. A six-year term would keep the anti-corruption campaigner in prison until after the next presidential election, scheduled for 2018. Navalny, the most prominent opposition leader to be tried in post-Soviet Russia, denied the charge of stealing 16 million roubles ($482,000) from a local timber firm that he was advising in 2009 while working for the liberal Kirov region governor. He looked shocked and exchanged nervous smiles with his wife Yulia after Prosecutor Sergei Bogdanov set out the prosecution's demands at his trial in Kirov, 550 miles northeast of Moscow.

Reports have it that the Middle Belt Reconnaissance, MBR, has called on Governor Rotimi Amaechi to publicly apologize to President Goodluck Jonathan over the feud between them and to resign from the politics of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum According to the Middle Belters, the strained relationship between Gov Amaechi and President Jonathan was being fuelled by Northern power brokers determined to take over power by 2015 and has become an embarrassment not only to the people of the Middle Belt but all minorities in the country My stance on this is that the Nigeria Governors' Forum be dissolved so each and every Governor should concentrate on the governance of his state which he is elected to lead. I do not see how this so-called Governors' Forum is contributing to the development of our respective states, I just see it as a platform where Governors contest for supremacy amongst themselves. And again, why should Amaechi apologise to President Jonathan? I thought it was reported last week that there is n . ...

TAKING THE POLITICS OUT OF THE POLITICS Plato, a great Philosopher and a mathematician of old once said that dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. Mubarak was ousted after 18 days of demonstrations during the 2011 Egyptian revolution when, on 11 February 2011, Vice President Omar Suleiman announced that Mubarak had resigned as president and transferred authority to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. On 13 April, a prosecutor ordered Mubarak and both his sons to be detained for 15 days of questioning about allegations of corruption and abuse of power. He was then ordered to stand trial on charges of negligence for not giving orders to stop the killing of peaceful protestors during the revolution. These trials officially began on 3 August 2011.

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 ONE of the earliest electoral protests in Cebu was filed in court 11 days after the May 13, 2013 midterm elections. Defeated mayoralty candidate Lakambini “Neneth” Reluya and her husband, Ricardo, of San Fernando, Cebu filed the protest against Mayor Antonio “Abe” Canoy and his son, vice mayor-elect Mikko, before the Regional Trial Court (RTC) in Cebu City last May 24. The couple alleged that anomalies and irregularities marred the casting, counting and canvassing of votes in the town’s 50 clustered precincts. The San Fernando Municipal Board of Canvassers declared Abe and Mikko as winners of the mayoralty and vice mayoralty elections, respectively. Abe got 16,187 votes or only 177 votes more than Neneth Reluya’s 16,010 votes. Mikko received 16,333 votes or 865 votes more than Nonoy Reluya’s 15,468 votes. In their separate protests, the Reluyas alleged that electoral fraud, anomalies and irregularities occurred in all 50 clustered precincts in the southern Cebu town. In ...

JAWAHARLAL NEHRU TRIED HIS BEST TO KILL VEER SAVARKAR BY IMPLICATING HIM IN GANDHI MURDER CASE=What were the events leading to the arrest of Savarkar on the charge of Gandhi’s murder? Gandhi was shot dead by Nathuram Godse on 30 January 1948. The Nehru Government was *** bent on using this murder to implicate Savarkar and crush the growing Hindutva movement. To this end, the following pernicious methods were employed: Lawyers all over the world abhor retrospective legislation. But Nehru, Patel & Co. (most of them lawyers themselves) had decided to go to any length. The Bombay Public Security Act was made applicable to the province of Delhi with retrospective effect by a Government of India decree of 02 June 1948, for the sake of the Gandhi murder trial. Congress leaders had always detested special courts set up by the British (especially during the Second World War). But they had not slightest hesitation in setting up a special court for this trial. The provisions of Bombay Public Security Measures Act ...

Bothered about world politics!!! Here's the glimpses Politics this week! David Cameron gave a big speech on Britain’s future relationship with the European Union. The prime minister called for a radically leaner EU and promised to negotiate a new settlement that will be put before British voters (if he wins an election in 2015) in a referendum that will offer an “in” or “out” option. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, said she wanted a “fair compromise”: “Germany, and I personally, want Britain to be an important part and an active member” of the EU, she said. In Germany Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union and its centre-right partners lost power in Lower Saxony, after the opposition Social Democrats and Greens narrowly won an election in the state (by just one seat).

Prosecuting Whistleblowers Instead of Criminals Speak No Evil by MICHAEL McKEE Long the disclaimer of those bearing bad news, the phrase “don’t shoot the messenger” may soon become a rallying cry of the American public. Under an ostensibly liberal, Democratic president, government prosecutors have ushered in a new era of targeting whistleblowers. Prosecuting those responsible for the wrongdoings, meanwhile, has been made no such priority. The recent sentencing of former CIA officer John Kiriakou represents the latest example in the crackdown on leaks to the media and public. So, the “good news” is, someone has finally gone to jail in connection to the U.S.’s policy of torture in the War on Terror. The bad news? It’s someone who helped bring the abhorrent practice to national attention, not any of the people who conducted or green-lighted that torture. As journalist Kevin Gosztola observed, “The only CIA officer to go to jail for torture is now officially an officer who never tortured anybo ...

China begins self-immolation trial, Makes more arrests Phayul[Tuesday, January 29, 2013 14:04] A screen shot of the two Tibetans standing trial in a Chinese court in eastern Tibet. DHARAMSHALA, January 29: A Chinese court in eastern Tibet began trial on two Tibetans, including a monk of the Kirti Monastery, on alleged crimes of inciting self-immolations in the Ngaba region. China’s official Xinhua news agency on January 26 cited a statement issued by the Intermediate People's Court of Aba Prefecture as saying that Lobsang Konchok, 41, and his nephew Lobsang Tsering, 31, have been accused of “intentional homicide.” Proceedings of the trial have been widely broadcast and publicised in China via national media and television channels. The report said the two Tibetans arrested in August last year were guilty of instigating eight Tibetans to self-immolate, resulting in three deaths. Last month, Chinese authorities stated that the two had acted on the instructions of the Dalai Lama and his followers, a ch ...
Jan 30, 1972: Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland In Londonderry, Northern Ireland, 13 unarmed civil rights demonstrators are shot dead by British Army paratroopers in an event that becomes known as "Bloody Sunday." The protesters, all Northern Catholics, were marching in protest of the British policy of internment of suspected Irish nationalists. British authorities had ordered the march banned, and sent troops to confront the demonstrators when it went ahead. The soldiers fired indiscriminately into the crowd of protesters, killing 13 and wounding 17. In April 1972, the British government released a report exonerating British troops from any illegal actions during the Londonderry protest. Irish indignation over Britain's Northern Ireland policies grew, and Britain increased its military presence in the North while removing any vestige of Northern self-rule. On July 21, 1972, the IRA exploded 20 bombs simultaneously in Belfast, killing British military personnel and a number of civilians. Britain responded ...

“Bill will curtail our powers” -Dikgosi Tribal leaders have voiced their concern over a Customary Court amendment bill that seeks to curtail their powers. In the proposed law, Dikgosi will be prevented from presiding over appeal cases on matters that have been decided by dikgosana. The cases would be taken to the Customary Court of Appeal. Debating the bill at the Ntlo ya Dikgosi, Kgosi Kebapetse Telekelo of the North East Region is worried that the move will reduce the powers given to tribal leaders. He also said result in the accumulation of cases at Customary Court of Appeal. However, Assistant Minister of Local Government, Botlogile Tshireletso said it would be inappropriate for a Dikgosi to preside over a case that has already been dealt with under his or her customary court. She also explained that the bill is seeking to afford the accused a fair trial by referring their appeal matters to Customary Court of Appeal.

The date of Joseph’s arrival in Egypt is debatable. Many believe he arrived during the period of the Hyksos rulers, foreigners who came from the region of Canaan. They invaded Egypt and controlled the land for almost 150 years. If Joseph arrived during their rule, it is easy to see why he was rapidly promoted up the royal ladder. Since the Hyksos were foreigners themselves, they would not hold the brilliant young foreigners ancestry against him.   Pharaoh was the general name for all the kings of Egypt. It was a title like “King” or “Mr President” used to address the country’s leader. The pharaohs in Genesis and Exodus were not the same men.   Ancient Egypt was a land of great contrasts. People were either rich beyond measure or poverty stricken. There wasn’t much middle ground. Joseph found himself serving Potiphar, an extremely rich officer in Pharaohs office.   Potiphar wife failed to seduce Joseph, who resisted this temptation by saying it would be a sin against God. Joseph didn’t s ...

FOREIGN NEWS: UAE To Charge 94 With Coup Plotting The United Arab Emirates has ordered 94 people to be tried on charges of trying to seize power. The attorney general said the suspects had formed a group that publicly called on people to observe the teachings and values of Islam, but in secret sought to overthrow the state. He said they had links to foreigners, including the Muslim Brotherhood. The UAE has arrested dozens of alleged dissidents, who have said they are victims of false accusations. Political parties and demonstrations are banned in the UAE. A statement from Attorney General Salem Saeed Kubaish said the suspects had used the media and social networking sites “to turn nationals (UAE citizens) against their government”. “They launched, established and ran an organisation seeking to oppose the basic principles of the UAE system of governance and to seize power,” it said. It said the group raised money through property deals and religious contributions. Last year authorities detained mor ...

PLEASE NOTE: A version of the following letter with embedded source links may be viewed and/or downloaded at 2013     Dear Senators:   Re:  Chuck Hagel's Nomination as U.S. Secretary of Defense, Open Letter of Appeal   I am urging you to oppose Chuck Hagel’s appointment as U.S. Secretary of Defense and appealing to your sound and wise judgment for the safety of our country, our military, and our allies like Israel at such a currently volatile, unstable time in world affairs.    Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) said it best during his recent interview with The Daily Beast, affirming, “Chuck Hagel’s opposition to Iranian sanctions and support for direct, unconditional talks with its leaders is both at odds with current U.S. policy and a threat to global security.”[1] Further, he added, Hagel’s call for direct negotiations with the terrorist party, Hamas, was “beyond the pale.”[2]    Aside from Chuck Hagel’s blatant contempt for Israel and Jewish Americans, his record exposes alarming co ...

This is the time for all wll~meaning freedom/­ peace~loving humans worldwide to press for justice in Nigeria. As you are well aware of, a judgement that is capable of setting on fire the Niger Delta region on fire that may result into unavoidable deaths is very close to us. I n Nigeria, we have had enough of injustice done to the Niger Delta region from the time of King Jaja of Opobo, where the British government took him away to their home country and delivered his lifeless body back to us for the simple reason that he was protecting the trading rights of our Niger Delta people. Over time, several of our people that fought for the freedom of our people have been killed~ a few of them are Major Isaac Adaka Boro, Ken Saro Wiwa, Chief Marshal Harry, A. K. Dikibo and some others that we do not know how ...
I am glad that there are people , who love Dr.Kalaam but disapprove of his latest talk to RAW.( from Times of India) = 1) "Such type of groupings with India are just platitudes and India should not take American anti-terror stances seriously. During the last 6 months, it has been observed that the US-Pak relationship, after a brief lull of 10 years, has reverted back to the relationship of Dulles era which attained its peak during Nixon-Kissinger time of 1971. Now, Foreign Secretary designate, Kerry is like Kissinger again. The world can conveniently forget about American fight against terrorism, rather, America is going to use terrorists again as its mercenaries together with Pakistan." = 2) "The US which promptly labels Muslims as terrorists simply because they are anti-US, has for several decades been keeping its ears and eyes shut and lips sealed over barbarism of Israelis against Palestinians.

TRUSTEES FOR ALASKA Plaintiffs Disappointed in Pebble Trial Decision In a disappointing decision, Superior Court Judge Eric A. Aarseth ruled that the Alaska Constitution did not require the State to provide public notice or issue a best interest finding prior to allowing exploration and temporary water use activities at the Pebble Project, which have been ongoing for the last 23 years. He also ruled that wildlife in the area has not been impacted even though local subsistence and sport users testified that helicopter activity has driven caribou from the Pebble Project area, and that fuel spills in the area have not caused serious environmental impact or harm. Posted: 10/7/2011 After two years of investigating and litigating the exploration and temporary water use permits for the Pebble Project, Trustees for Alaska, in a ten-day trial, introduced numerous witnesses and hundreds of exhibits demonstrating the harm to the resources in the region from Pebble’s exploration, including hundreds of boreholes, th ...
What does Dokubo-Asari really want? We have always said what we have on (the) ground (the Presidential Amnesty Programme) is successful. Today people are being trained oversees in various skills and in the universities, and the Niger Delta area is now better for it. There is no doubt that the amnesty programme is very successful” – Mujahid Dokubo-Asari during a press conference at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja, in September 2012. Leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, remains the most lionized among the contemporary crop of those who hogged the headlines on account of their armed struggle for resource control in Nigeria’s Niger Delta. After his detention and treasonable felony trial during the President Olusegun Obasanjo administration, Dokubo-Asari was much sought by newsmen, who believed he symbolized the fight for justice not only in the Niger Delta but also for other marginalized zones within the Nigerian federation. At the time, his NDPVF was at the forefro ...
Hello REFAM & ASAM, I regret to inform you that today Executive Order No. 1 series of 2011, prohibiting the “exploration, excavation, extraction and utilization of metallic minerals” in Romblon has been ruled unconstitutional by a Regional Trial Court in Romblon. It has become ever more important that we support political candidates sympathetic to our cause and promote legislation within the Province that will prevent or make it painfully expensive for mining operations to take hold in our beloved Province of Romblon. REFAM leadership has requested an emergency meeting this afternoon, please PM me for details or contact Bishop Ronel Fabriquier or Pastor Hermie Allera.
Court issues injunction on MC Adore rush sale Posted on January 14, 2013 - Filed Under Headlines, News | Leave a Comment LIM CONFIDENT “SELLOUT” IS LEGAL THE controversial MC Adore issue further sizzled when the disposal committee formed by Mayor Benjamin Lim, and to which he appointed himself chair, proceeded with the sale of the property on January 7, two days before Acting Judge Emma Torio of Branch 42 of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) issued a writ of preliminary injunction stopping any action on the property. The order of Torio stems from Civil Case No.. 2012-0010 seeking Declaratory Relief regarding the validity of Resolution No. 6738-2012 passed by the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) of Dagupan City during a controversial special session called by Lim on April 5, 2012 while Vice Mayor Belen Fernandez, chair of the SP, was in the United States on an official visit. Lim is brushing off the court order saying he received it two days after the sale. “As far as I am concerned, it has been done, it doe ...
Aga Muhlach for Congressman: Tuloy na tuloy na. Aga, through the country's no. 1 election lawyer, Atty. R. Makalintal, was able to secure a TRO from Court of Appeals for delisting his and his wife's name, Charlene, as registered voters of the municipality of San Jose, Cam Sur via Regional Trial Court's decision almost 3 months earlier. Aga is the Liberal Party official candidate for congressman of Cam Sur 4th district (Partido area) to slug it out with a Fuentebella scion. Aga's ninong in joining the LP was the late Sec. Jesse Robredo and actors Richard Gomez and Cesar Montano. His candidacy is being aligned with the provincial slate led by Gov. Lray Villafuerte and his son, Miguel. It is widely believed that Lray will bankroll Aga's candidacy and win at all cost. Being a multi-awarded actor and TV host for Philippine tourism, Aga is already considered as runaway winner by a mile-distant.

LINCOLN v LOUISIANA. When Lincoln led the charge to enact the 13th amendment and abolish slavery, our world was forever changed. While it would be decades before most African-Americans would be treated equally, civil rights was set in motion. Does anyone want to fly Louisiana Judge Timothy Kelley to a private showing of Lincoln, the movie? He’s the guy who just Friday ruled against the progressive scholarship program that helps poor and mainly African-American kids to be treated like a whole person and actually get an education befitting a whole person. Kelley is hardly unbiased as judges go. As the Wall Street Journal opined, “Louisiana Judge Timothy Kelley sure is a fast writer. Only hours after the end of a two-day trial, the Balzac of the judiciary rolled out a 39-page opinion striking down the state's pioneering voucher program as unconstitutional. Could it be that he knew how he was going to rule before the trial?” While LA governor Bobby Jindal, aided by the Institute for Justice, will appeal ...

If anyone is interested in travelling to the Umbombo courts for the trial, and to support Phinda's call to deny bail, let me know, and perhaps we can all contribute to mileage costs and share the load.
Why the Uhuru-Ruto alliance is a ticket to nowhere... A “political merger” of TNA and URP is nonsense on stilts. It won’t take a step without collapsing into a heap. That’s because oil and vinegar don’t mix. Let’s call a spade by its name. There’s no love lost between Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto. If you believe the International Criminal Court, the two went at each other hammer and tongs in 2008. Don’t be fooled that the wily and cunning Mr Ruto will be Mr Kenyatta’s bride. Nor should you expect the brash Mr Kenyatta to prostrate himself before Mr Ruto. Which begs the question – how can you have a “political union” where there’s no master and servant? That because you can’t. The weird courtship between Mr Kenyatta and Mr Ruto is grounded on two mortal “fears” – the fear of the ICC and the fear of PM Raila Odinga. A paradox They’ve formed a pact because the ICC accuses them of masterminding the violence targeting “each other ...

Every year K9 Red and I certify with the United States Police K9 Association as a Narcotic Detector Dog Team. The USPCA is the oldest K9 organization in the nation. A certification is just one step, which also includes training and documentation to bolster our credibility when challenged in court. This past Saturday approximately 30 K9 teams were scheduled to compete in a regional trial in Worcester. The teams were from Massachusetts and NH. They included Worcester, Boston, Shrewsbury, and Manchester (NH) to name a few. K9 Red and I finished fourth out of 24 teams which certified. The top four teams were all from our training group in Worcester. While the first and foremost objective of every team is to certify. This was a pleasant surprise as any of the teams could have placed at the top on any given trial. The teams are just that good. The scoring is based on both the Handler and K9's performance and how they work together as a team.

Problems in land titling and the process of conversion Given this situation, it would seem that rural farmers and lot owners would have no choice but to convert their tax declarations into land titles. However, the process can be daunting and expensive for the ordinary farmer. Presidential Decree 1529 (Property Registration Decree) states the process of converting a tax declaration into a title. The process involves judicial determination and decision as the filing for registration of title to land must be done with the Regional Trial Court. Under PD 1529,

All hotels in the Philippines are “negligent” in providing “basic and adequate security” to their guests based on the standards of Philippine Supreme Court’s recent affirmation of a Court of Appeals (CA) ruling against Shangri-La Makati Hotel on the death of a Norwegian hotel guest in November 1999. In a decision penned by Justice Lucas P. Bersamin, the Supreme Court First Division found no reversible error on the part of the CA when it affirmed with modification the judgment rendered by the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) on October 25, 2005, holding Makati Shangri-La Hotel and Resort, Inc. liable for damages for the murder of Norwegian guest Christian Fredrik Harper. Specifically, the CA ordered Shangri-La to pay Harper’s heirs P52,078,702.50 as actual and compensatory damages, P25,000 as temperate damages, P250,000 as attorney’s fees, and to pay for the costs of the suit.

Medina says his loyalty to friends ends where his loyalty to Isabel begins. ISABEL, LEYTE – For doing a good job, Mayor Saturnino “Jun”Medina is being “punished”by “former friends and political backers” by putting up an opposition slate to run against him in 2013 and terminating the services of his wife’s security agency before their contract ends. Some 132 “blue guards”of Philpos, including eight at the Rio Verde in Palawan, both owned by business man Pepito Alvarez, face unemployment after management terminated the services of Jayhawk Security Agency last week.
