Isang suspek sa pagnanakaw ang nagsumbong kay Raffy Tulfo sa programa nito sa TV5 noong lunes, Oktubre 8.

Si Rigor Computo y Luchavez, ay nabilanggo noong June 29, 2012 sa Angono BJMP sa kasong Robbery.  Siya ay nagtungo sa himiplan ng programa ni Tulfo upang isumbong at ireklamo ang umano’y pagpapakawala sa kanyang bilangguan sa Angono upang magsagawa ng Robbery Hold-up sa komunidad.

Sa phone-patch radio interview ng programa ni Tulfo kay Police Superintendent Resty Olais Damaso, hepe ng Angono PNP, mariing pinabulaanan nito ang mga akusasyon ni Rigor Computo.  Ang nasabing interview ay mabilis na kumalat sa komunidad, dahilan upang hingan ng paliwanag ni Angono Mayor Gerry Calderon ang nasabing iregularidad sa Angono PNP noong Oct. 9.

 

Liham ni Mayor Gerry Calderon kay P/Supt. Damaso upang magbigay ng paliwanag ukol sa lumabas na isyu sa Angono PNP.

Mabilis naman itong sinagot ni P/Supt Damaso noong Oct. 10, at sa pamamagitan ng isang liham, ay muling nitong  itinanggi ang mga akusasyon laban sa kanya at sa kanilang himpilan. “This Station strongly denies the malicious accusations by subject person as he is not a detainee in the lock-up jail of this Station…” paliwanag ni Damaso.

Ayon sa liham ni hepe kay Mayor Gerry, ang naturang bilanggo ay nailipat na ng kulungan mula Angono BJMP patungo sa Cardona BJMP noong Aug. 29, 2012 pa.  “Hence, custody over the said person is automatically terminated” dagdag pa ni Damaso.

Liham ni P/Supt Damaso kay Mayor Gerry Calderon

Sinabi rin niya na ang mga maling akusasyon ay mga paninira lamang at black propaganda laban sa kanya at sa buong himpilan.  “Further, this Station in the leadership of the undersigned faithfully denied the said accusations made by Mr. Tulfo, and ready to face any accusations heartfully.  Likewise, this Station has a very good police community/media relations and accomplishments”, dagdag na paliwanag ni Damaso.

Si Police Superintendent Damaso ay naitalaga bilang hepe ng  Angono PNP noong August 13, 2012, ilang linggo bago inilipat ng kulungan ang suspek na si Computo sa Cardona BJMP.

Oct. 8, 2012 | Dozens of residents in Angono, Rizal  flock the COMELEC office here  everyday to register and be able to vote on the 2013 mid-term elections.

After the Filing of Certificate of Candidacy ended last week, the local Comelec here again opened the registration to the public.

After a long line, this applicant finally submitted her registration form, and now a new registered voter in Angono.                                         (Photo by Edwin Rivera, KKK Coordinator)

“We are urging all eligible first-time voters who will turn at least 18 years old on May 2013 to file their voter’s registration this early. Let us avoid last-minute registrations so we can take part in electing our nation’s leaders,” said Comelec spokesman James Jimenez.

Deadline of registration is October 31, 2012 but the Comelec is encouraging early registration so it can prepare better for the conduct of automated polls with the use of special ballots, such as those used in the May 2010 national elections, he added.

Applicants should bring with them a copy of their birth certificate and one valid ID for their registration.  The local COMELEC office is open from Monday to Saturday (including holidays), 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

List of valid identification (ID) cards, according to COMELEC:

    1. Current employee’s identification card (ID), with the signature of the employer or authorized representative;
    1. Postal ID;
    1. Student’s ID or library card, signed by the school authority;
    1. Senior Citizen’s ID;
    1. Driver’s license;
    1. NBI/PNP clearance;
    1. Passport;
    1. SSS/GSIS ID;
    1. Integrated Bar of the Philippine (IBP) ID;
    1. License issued by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) and;
    1. Any other valid ID

The ID should bear the applicant’s photo, signature, and complete address. The poll body has likewise emphasized that community tax certificates (cedulas) and other certifications and IDs issued by barangay officials will not be honored.

 

According to section 5 of COMELEC resolution 9149 promulgated last year, any Filipino citizen who has met the following requirements is eligible to vote:

    1. At least eighteen (18) years of age;
    1. A resident of the Philippines for at least one (1) year and in the place wherein he proposes to vote, for at least six (6) months immediately preceding the election; and
    1. Not otherwise disqualified by law.

An NSO birth certificate may be needed as authentic proof of a voter’s identity.

Aside from first-time voters, persons who want to transfer registration records to a new residence; change, update or correct entries such as those for newly-wed women who changed surnames; and voters whose records were deactivated for failure to vote in the past two elections can also file their applications within the registration period.

Sto. Domingo Church

The National Museum now considers the Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City and its liturgical objects a “national cultural treasures,” the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines said early Wednesday.
In an article posted on its news site early Wednesday, the CBCP said the official declaration of this status will be made on October 4.
“Fr. Clarence Victor Marquez, director of the Institute of Preaching, said the occasion will coincide with the traditional enthronement ceremonies of the canonical image of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, La Naval de Manila,” the CBCP said.
But the CBCP also noted that for its parishioners, the church is not only a cultural treasure but also a refuge of the poor.
This was the case earlier this year when many families stayed there in the wake of heavy rain and floods that swamped Metro Manila.
“During typhoons and floods, many families run inside for shelter and stay there for several days,” it noted.
The CBCP said the original church structure, which was of gothic design, was originally located in Manila’s Intramuros district, managed by the Dominicans.
It was reconstructed after it collapsed in 1589, and made of concrete this time.
The church was relocated to Quezon City in the 1960s after sustaining heavy damage in World War II, and became the new national shrine of the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of La Naval de Manila.
“Since it is a shrine accessible to many residents of the city, the church became a melting pot of devotees from different places,” the CBCP noted.
In December 1971, the autonomous Philippine Dominican Province was created, and the church was placed under the care of the Filipino Dominican priests.
On February 23, 1972, Sto. Domingo Church was canonically established and was declared a parish church.
The eight (8) mural paintings displayed inside the Sto. Domingo Church are the art masterpiece of  Botong Francisco, a national artist from Angono, Rizal.
“From among the clergy assigned to the parish, a priest is elected and recommended to the local bishop for appointment,” the CBCP said.

MANILA, Philippines—Filipino netizens are the freest in Asia and sixth in the world when it comes to Internet freedom, according to a study by a Washington DC-based advocacy group released as outrage builds in the Philippines over a new cybercrime law.

The study of Freedom House found the Philippines having the greatest degree of Internet freedom among the countries examined in Asia. Second in rank is South Korea and next is India. China, meanwhile, belongs to the “Not Free” category.

In the entire world, Estonia has the freest cyberspace while the United State has the second freest, the Freedom on the Net 2012: A Global Assessment of Internet and Digital Media showed.

The Philippines, which has 29 percent internet penetration as of 2011, shares the sixth spot with Italy.

“Iran, Cuba, and China received the lowest scores in the analysis,” said the study.  “Eleven other countries received a ranking of Not Free, including Belarus, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, and Thailand.”

“A total of 20 of the 47 countries examined experienced a negative trajectory in internet freedom since January 2011, with Bahrain, Pakistan, and Ethiopia registering the greatest declines,” it said.

Freedom House also identified a number of countries it sees as particularly vulnerable to deterioration of internet freedom in the coming 12 months: Azerbaijan, Libya, Malaysia, Pakistan, Russia, Rwanda, and Sri Lanka.

“Several downgrades, particularly in the Middle East, reflected intensified censorship, arrests, and violence against bloggers as the authorities sought to quell public calls for reform. In Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Uzbekistan, and China, authorities imposed new restrictions after observing the key role that social media played in the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia,” the study said.

The study came as Filipinos protest the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, a new law that could see people sentenced to 12 years in jail for posting defamatory comments on social media networks.

The stated aim of the cybercrime law is to fight online pornography, hacking, identity theft and spamming in the conservative Catholic nation amid police complaints they lack the legal tools to stamp out Internet crime.

However, it also includes a blanket provision that puts the country’s criminal libel law into force in cyberspace, except that the penalties for Internet defamation are much tougher compared with old media.

It also allows authorities to collect data from personal user accounts on social media and listen in on voice/video applications, such as Skype, without a warrant.
