Cesar Cuntapay: Tagum Press Ombudsman

Club, Inc., (DNPRC) have unanimously adopted and chosen retired police investigator and now businessman Cesar Cuntapay as a Press Ombudsman.

A press ombudsman is one who receives and hears complaints from the public for mediation, settlement and institution of disciplinary action to mediamen who committed abuse or unethical decorum in the exercise of the profession. He also serves as arbiter and mediator in the conflicts between mediamen.

The DNPRC reached its decision to adopt and choose Cuntapay primarily due to his fairness, objectivity and independence, said Gregorio “Loloy” Ybanez, DNPRC president.

Cuntapay is also the current chairman of the Tagum City Consumers Association, Inc., considered as one of the most active consumer groups in the region. It actively and proactively works with the Dept. of Trade and Industry.

For his part, Cuntapay said he was humbled by the designation of Tagum mediamen and called for vigilance and integrity for an independent and watchdog media in the city and Davao del Norte and Compostela provinces.

The re-launching of DNRPC press forum is one of the group’s series of activities in celebration of the Press Freedom Month in October which will culminate in a Press Freedom Gridiron Night, a comical spoof theater act on burning issues of the day, and Media Fellowship Night and Disco on Oct. 31.
