Red carpet treatment

Tataw na gayud nga grabe ang suporta nga gihatag ni AGR – Anthony Rafael G. del Rosario (AGR) sa tandem ni Senador Noynoy Aquino ug Mar Roxas. Gitawag nga red carpet treatment ang gihatag sa Kapitolyo sa Mankilam, Tagum City niadtong Biyernes sa launching sa Noynoy Aquino for President Movement (NAPM) sa Davao del Norte. Matud pa, daghang mga politiko ang misugat kang Nonoy ug Mar, samtang init gayud ang pag-welcome sa kanila ni Governor Rodolfo del Rosario, ang amahan  ni AGR. Matud pa libre usab ang kaon sa mga misugat nga mga estudyante ug katawhan sa klase-klaseng sektor.
*****
Seguro out of courtesy lang isip amahan sa probinsya nganong mihatag ug usa ka red carpet treatment si Gov. Del Rosario, nga taga Lakas-CMD Party, ngadto sa mga kandidato sa oposisyon. Una nang miingon ang gobernador nga di niya mapugngan ang iyang anak nga mo-oposisyon tungod kay iyang girespetuhan ang kagawasan sa iyang anak sa pagpili kung kinsa ang iyang suportaran pagka-Presidente ug pagka-Bise Presidente.
******
Human sa pagbisita nila Senador Noynoy ug Mar Roxas sa Liberal Party sa Tagum City, mibaniog dayon ang mga estorya nga nag-oposisyon na ang gobernador ug miuban na kani sa panaw sa politika sa iyang anak. Apan dili pa kani makonpirmar dayon ug gani may taho nga nag Lakas-Ramos wing ang gobernador. Kung mao kani ang posisyon sa gobernador, posible nga ang liderato sa na merged nga Lakas-Kampi-CMD o ang Lakas nga Malacanang wing makuha na sa mga Floirendos ug Lagdameo. Hangtud karon matud pa aduna gihapoy konplikto tali kanila ug sa Del Rosario.
*****
Pagarpar sa politikang yellow si Boardmember Antonio Lagunzad kay matud pa nahimo kaning mayor sa Tagum tungod kang Presidente Cory Aquino. Morag nakapuntos ang bokal niadtong pag-abot nila Noynoy sa Tagum tungod sa kabaga sa mga tawong miapil sa NAPM. Tama na segurong mobulag na si Lagunzad sa Lakas ug mag Liberal na. Ang nakaapan man gud kaniya kay kusganon siyang maka yellow karon sa pagsuporta kang AGR apan dako pod nga makaadministrasyon kay sigeg deklarar nga dakong loyal lagi siya kang Gov. Dolfo. Consistent lang siya kay may alegasyon man gud nga balingbing ug doble kara na gayud ang politika ni Lagunzad sa una pa.
*****
Mas maayo pa ang gibuhat ni AGR nga miresayn gayud sa Lakas sa iyang pagdeklar nga modagan sa Kongreso isip independente nga kandidato. Karon tataw na siyang oposisyong dako. Ang nakaapan lang pod kay wa pa miresayn siya isip empleyado (provincial sports coordinator) sa kagamhanang probinsyal samtang gigamit niya ang Kapitolyo sa paghatag ug suporta sa mga kandidato sa oposisyon.
******
Nakit-an usab si Compostela Valley Governor Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy didto sa Kapitolyo sa Mankilam nga misugat usab kang Noynoy ug Mar. Apan sa iyang pamahayag sa usa ka text message kanako, miingon siya nga miadto lang siya tungod kay giimbitar siya ni AGR ug sa iyang igsoong Mayor Rey Uy sa Tagum, ug anaa pa gihapon siya sa Lakas. Pasabot nga wa pa miabak ang gobernador ngadto kang Senador Manny Villar nga modagan pod pagka-Presidente- hangtud niadtong Byernes.
******
TINALIGSIK: Formidable ang tandem ni Dr. Miller Alaba, ang kanhi mayor, ug Atty. Mario Sapilan, No. 1 councilor, sa Maco, Comval. Gikataho ang Alaba-Sapilan tandem nga moparang batok ni Mayor Voltaire Rimando ug Bise Mayor Charles Suelto. Puros Top  1 councilor ning si Alaba ug Sapilan…. Kanhi Gov. Joecab Caballero “either for governor or for congressman pa rin”. Ayaw na na dugaya uy kay daghan na naghinam-himan sa Uy-Joecab or Amatong-Joecab fight. Kinsa kaha sa duruha ang makagasto sa 2010?….. Mideklarar na nga modagan pagkamayor sa Tagum ang retiradong police investigator Cesar Cuntapay. Matud niya sa “Histoganay sa Onse” nga TV program sa Skycable-Tagum modagan siya aron paubsan ang taas nga mehurasan sa syudad ug aron protektahan ang Tagum consumers…. “Di tinoud ang balita nga si Maragusan Mayor Cesar Colina sa Comval na-suspended ug gipolitika lang kani,” matud pa ni Atty. Daniel Campoamor, kinsa close friend sa mayor. Nabaniog man gud nga tungod kay daghang namatay sa bardown sa Pamintaran gold rush area ug wa kahimog aksyon ang mayor mao nga nasuspended. Di diay kani tinoud. (Alang sa inyong reksyon, e-mail: chamonforte@yahoo.com, text: 09392218348)

NEWS: Facing a mountain of court cases, Nabunturan Judge Clapis says “I’m no Superman”

oct 27

Pity the one and only Regional Trial Court judge in Compostela Valley for facing a mountain of court cases for him to decide.

The national average of cases at the salas of RTC judges is only about 800 cases but RTC Branch 3 Judge Hilarion Clapis Jr has todate over 2,700 cases clogging up in his sala at Nabunturan capital town.

For these, he conducts an average of 30 court hearings every working day and at times there are 45 cases listed for hearing in a day. Compared to the 6 RTCs in Davao del Norte, each sala could be fairly content of hearing an average of 10 cases in day, reckons the youthful Atty. Rex Lopoz of the Lopoz and Lopoz Law Group.

Each RTC sala in Davao del Norte has to contend only some 500 cases.

But the friendly judge though is apparently a trier of figures against hard realities dawning in his sala. He says: “I’m resolving cases as fast and as intelligently as I can, but I’m no Superman. The figure is too much”.

For this, Judge Clapis has no penchant of always allowing motions for postponements of hearings saying that “I like many lawyers coming over, debating in my sala everyday”.

He thanked the Integrated Bar of the Philippines- Davao del Norte-Compostela Valley Chapter chaired by Atty. Daniel Campoamor for the general membership meeting’s resolution on Friday asking the Senate and House of Representatives for the immediate creation of RTC salas in Compostela Valley.

Last Friday, in the bid of making justice accessible to the poor, the local IBP Chapter also asked the Supreme Court for two additional Public Attorney Office (PAO) lawyers for each of Davao del Norte and Compostela Valley, and additional prosecutors for the latter province.

The lawyers group also asked the Supreme Court, for the immediate appointment of regular judges in the municipal circuit court for Compostela and New Bataan and the municipal trial court in Laak, which are currently served by Acting Judge Juanito Betonio (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News) http://ruralurbanews.blogspot.com

“IBP Chapter views alarming incidents with deep concern”

oct 28

Lawyers belonging to the Integrated Bar of the Philippines Davao del Norte-Compostela Valley Chapter on their general membership meeting on Friday afternoon unanimously passed a resolution for their group to spearhead the holding of an inter-agency conference and dialogue to address “alarming incidents” of extrajudicial killings and summary executions taking place in Tagum City.

In the resolution e-mailed to local media Saturday, the IBP Davao del Norte-Comval Chapter stated that “for a number of years now, there has been a series of extrajudicial killings and summary executions taking place in Tagum City”, and that “these have been unabated and the perpetrators have not been brought to the bar of justice”.

“The Integrated Bar of the Philippines, Davao del Norte-Comval Chapter views these alarming incidents with deep concern as, unless steps be taken, more human rights violation shall be committed,” it said.

“The members of the legal profession were integrated and constituted into the integrated bar of the Philippines for the noble objective, among others, of promoting the rule of law.”

The lawyers group then resolved “that a conference and dialogue shall be held to be spearheaded by the chapter for the purpose of threshing out the serious problem and to come up with suggested solutions to stop these extrajudicial killings and summary executions.”

It sought that the conference and dialogue be attended by the Office of the Provincial Governor, Office of the City Mayor of Tagum, PNP Provincial Command, Tagum City Chief of Police, Diocese of Tagum, religious sectors, non-government organizations, youth sector, professional sector and press and media practitioners

The local IBP chapter has also furnished copies of the resolution to the national office of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, the Provincial Peace and Order Council and the Regional Peace and order Council for their information and appropriate action.

In an interview, Atty. Daniel Campoamor, the chapter president, said that they are yet to schedule the date of the conference and dialogue but “it will be held before the year ends”.

The local IBP membership meeting was also attended by judges and prosecutors from the two provinces. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News) http://ruralurbanews.blogspot.com
