    Last December 9, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle opened the Holy Door of the Manila Cathedral signaling the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy of the Catholic Church.

    The Jubilee Year of Mercy is a special period declared by Pope Francis which began last December 8 and will end on November 20 next year. During this period, Catholics are encouraged to do more acts of mercy.

    Among the acts of mercy raised by Cardinal Tagle is respect, as he urged the end to the exploitation and rape of women and children.

    His call is particularly resonant in the recent revelation made by Camarines Sur Provincial Police OIC- Provincial Director SSupt. Walfredo Pornillos.

    During the launch of the PNPs Oplan Lambat Sibat campaign last month, Pornillos expressed concern over the disturbing number of incestuous rape cases in Camarines Sur which reached 233 in October this year.

    Certainly, 233 is more than just a number. They are human beings whose dreams perhaps, are now shattered to pieces.

    Certainly, any right-thinking human being should not only express anger over this bestiality, but should also do something concrete.

    For us in the media for instance, perhaps, we should extend and stretch the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (which started last November 25 and ended December 12), to a year.

    Every day, we should pound on the consciousness of everyone, through our news on air and on print, that there are laws which protect women from all these unnecessary violence.

    Yes, we should pray for mercy and pray that we will not eventually want of it.

    Atty. TONY (APA) ACYATANThe PSE reminds stock investors

    to open their own account with PSE-accredited brokerage firms and to transact only with said chosen brokerage firm. SEC is also asking the public to be wary of investment solicitations offering share prices at discounted prices. These schemes may include supposed employee stock option plans. While these may be offered at discounted prices, the PSE must first approve them and provided distribution is confined to company employees. Keepsafe your money always!

    ARBITRATION: One of the most popular legal innovations in contracting is the inclusion of an arbitration provision (before engaging in court litigation). Amid the growing number of companies seeking arbitration against government agencies, there is now a call for the Philippine government and the private sector to further scrutinize the contracts being signed between them to avoid conflicts that may eventually lead to legal issues and finally court litigation.

    While businessmen believe arbitration cases against the government could negate the flow of foreign direct investments (FDI) in the country, they also believe that

    (Atty. APA chairs Acyatan & Co., CPAs-DFK International is past chair of ASEAN Federation of CPAs, PICPA past president and Hall-of-Famer, and ACPAPP Lifetime Achievement Awardee).

    MIND-SETTING: There should be a law regulating the conduct of and free release of political survey results. Firstly, there must be strict guidelines on how the surveys are to be conducted, including the type and manner of preparing the questionnaires. These must not be tilted to generate answers in favor of the survey sponsors. Thus, the survey firms must be required to declare the name or the group which commissioned the survey.

    Just like the warning required by the FDA in the sale of food supplements (that there are no proven therapeutic guarantees) release of survey results must contain the same caveat. This way the readers of surveys results will be alerted on the potential sway and bias of the release. The so-called margin of error can be logically minimized if the minimum number of respondents for every survey can be required by regulation. The areas where the surveys are undertaken must also be revealed.

    SCAMS: The Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc. (PSE) advises the public to exercise caution in dealing with individuals who are not licensed to solicit funds for stock market investments. Reports of unscrupulous practices perpetuated by scam agents indicated that losses to stock market investors are aplenty. These practices do not only cheat victims of their money but also unduly stain the reputation of the stock market especially among retail investors.

    Campaigning Via Surveysarbitration is a practical way for companies to settle disputes. The Intl Chamber of Commerce (ICC) said companies are now seeking arbitration from an international court to settle disputes with government. They include the rate adjustment case of Maynilad and Manila Water Co. vs. MWSS and the P53B tax case between Shell Philippines and COA.

    CLIMATE CHANGE: The world is now aware of the adversities involving environmental degradation caused by human abuses against nature. During the recent world confab in Paris Pres. P-Noy presented the Philippine experience. Businesses were urged to help communities to adapt to climate change. From Filipino coconut growers whose trees were wiped out by Typhoon Yolanda to palm oil prices squeezed by El Nio-linked droughts, consumer products are being affected by the weather!

    In the Philippines, industrial giant Unilever has provided storm-hit communities with new tree seedlings. In Tanzania, the multinational company is restoring degraded land and supplying higher-yielding tea plants to growers, as well as setting up a factory to buy excess production that are thrown away. Currently, there are excess banana harvests in Mindanao and in some areas in Luzon-Visayas. Government must find ways to deal with surplus harvests to insure continuing future production.

    WISDOM: When truth becomes uncomfortable to hear and inconvenient to bear, brute power is resorted to!

    Why? Because there was Death Penalty The big drug Lord at that time was Lim Seng and he was sentenced to death by firing squad. Since then, drug Lords especially those from abroad were afraid to bring their drug trade to the Philippines.

    We only need to pass a law imposing the death penalty on those who violate the Anti-Illegal Drugs Law.

    I t is t rue we have the 5th Commandment of God Thou shalt not kill. But God did not say we

    cannot kill to defend ourselves. The law I am thinking is a protection or defense against the consequences of the availability and use of illegal drugs in the country like the crimes committed by drug addicts.

    God will judge us on a case to case basis. I believe Gods justice will understand and will consider this idea of a death penalty no as a form of disobedience to Him but only as a kind of self-defense and to discourage illegal drug trade in the country.

    This is just thinking aloud with this idea. It is better than summary executions that are happening and have happened in Davao City without due process of law as reported in the media.

    Judgment should be made by the court and not by anybody else. Dutertes Dirty Harry Style is not the right way to eradicate criminality as it is not the legal process. As the saying goes: The end does not justify means.

    Its Christmas time, a time to greet and honor Jesus Christ, our Redeemer whose birthday falls on December 25. Lets thank Him for our loves and for the blessings he has given us. I thank God for the second life He gave me and for my family and friends, my relatives, my in-laws, doctors, nurses. I was hospitalized for one week and now I am back.

    The birth of Jesus has made the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God and St. Joseph as his foster father. Let us emulate their love, care and respect for each other. I have experienced the blessings of having a family especially as sick Mama. Lets thank God for our family. Merry Christmas to all.

    *****We do not need death squads like

    those of Davao City that is linked to Duterte in order to eradicate illegal drugs in the country.

    Dur ing the p res idency o f Ferdinand E. Marcos, illegal drugs was nil. It was not a great menace.

    No need for Death Squads like thoseof Davao City, Death Penalty Law better

    VigilantismoSaro sa mga patok alagad medyo gasgas nang mga tema kan

    pelikulang aksyon sa Pilipinas iyo an vigilantismo kun saen an bidang aktor na arog ki Fernando Poe, Jr. o Lito Lapid naitutulod na magin vigilante ta kaipuhan nindang magbalos sa mga nang-abuso sainda o sa saindang mga padangat sa buhay.

    Kadakli sa mga pelikulang ini nagpapahiling nin sarong klaseng hustisya na iyo sa paagi nin venganza. Halimbawa ngaya si agom, aki o magurang kan bida ginadan kan sarong grupo nin mga kriminal tapos hahanapon kan bida si mga kagibo kan krimen para magbalos. Makikilaban si bida sa mga kontrabida (kaibanan na syempre si mga cheesy dialogues)sa paagi nin suntukan saka badilan. Ugwa pang mga lamagan nin sasakyan (kabayo, motorsiklo, kotse o helicopter) asin special effects na pasabog. Sa kinatapos-taposi kan pelikula magagadan si mga kontrabida pero minsan nagagadan man si bida sa huri.

    Sa arog kaining tema nin pelikulang aksyon nagsikat asin pinadangat si FPJ kan masa. Nabansagan pa ngani syang action king kan pelikulang Pilipino. Minirar na bayani si FPJ saka kadikit pa nganing mangana bilang presidente kan Pilipinas. An papel sa peikula ni FPJ asin kan iba pang sikat na aktor sa pelikulang aksyon garo minasalming kan kolektibong kapahaan kan masa sa hustisya.

    Minasimpatya an dakol na tawo sa mga vigelanteng bida sa pelikula. Garo baga sinasabing inaako o akseptado kan mga Pilipino an arog kaining klase nin paghanap nin hustisya. Siguro ining klaseng mentalidad kan dakol na Pilipino an pinaka dahilan kun tano ta matonog na marhay an pangaran ni Mayor Rodrigo Duterte na posibleng magin sunod na presidente kan satong nasyon.

    Arog kan mga bida sa mga pelikulang aksyon dakol kontradiksyon sa pagkatawo ni Mayor Duterte. Ini mga kontradiksyon na garo mas nagparani sa saiya sa boot kan dakol na botante. Inot iyo an pagigin matagas asin maisog nya laban daa sa mga kriminal na ginaradan kan Davao Death Squad. Aminado ngani si Mayor Duterte na dakol na daa syan nagadan na mga kriminal. Inihahambog nya pa ngani na pwedeng mag-abot daa sa 1,700 na kriminal na an nagadan o naipagadan nya sa Davao.

    Minahanga man ngani an kadaklan ta garo man nangad epektibo an kamot na batbat sa Davao ta matuninong daa saka mauswag an syudad.Iniyong pagkakaigwa nin brutal na imahe ni Duterte garo kabaliktaran daa kan pagigin malumoy an puso sa mga pobre asin sa mga biktima nin kalamidad. Minsan ngani naipahiling pa sa TV na napaluha si Duterte kan nagbisita sa mga nagin biktima kan bagyong Yolanda.

    An pangaduwang kontradiksyon sa pagkatawo ni Duterte na nagustuhan sa saiya kan mga botante iyo an pagigin magaspang nya sa pagtaram na kadalasan ugwang kaibang muda. Ini sa balyo kan pagkakaugwa nya nin halangkaw na pinag-adalan bilang sarong abogado. Dae man sya mahilig magtaram ni Ingles asin nataram sya sa natural na ponto (accent). Mayong duda na intilehenteng tawo si Duterte dawa garo pang istambay sa kanto kun sya magtaram sa publiko.

    An pangatulong kontradiksyon sa personalidad ni Duterte na mas nagparani sa saiya sa boot kan mga botante iyo an saiyang kawawaran daa nin ambisyon na magin presidente. Itong garo napipiritan lang ta dakol nanganagpudan asin nagtutulod sa saiya para magkandidato. Urong-sulong ngani baga dati sa desisyon nya. Kun baga garo sarong bidang action star sa pelikula na pahuri-huri asin padaog-daog na muna bago minabanat nin toda.

    Arog kan sarong bida sa pelikulang aksyon, hinuhuna kan mga botante na tunay na bayani si Duterte na garo messiah na masalbar sa nasyon. Alagad pano man maipapasunod nin tultol an leyes kan sarong vigilante na dae nganing galang sa bill of rights kan satonng konstitusyon asin dae man tataong magsunod o nagtutubod sa due process?

    Dakula an pinagkaiba kan vigilanteng bida sa pelikula asin an sarong aminadong vigilante sa totoong buhay. An paragadan na vigilante sa totoong buhay saro man na kriminal. Baka an hinuhuna tang solusyon mas magpalala pa lugod kan problema kan satong nasyon. Dae ta kaipuhan an klase nin vigilantismo na minatumak sa satong leyes asin sibilisadong sistema nin hustisya.

    Kun arog man lang kaini an mangyayari sa nasyon ta, mas marhay pang suluon na lang an konstitusyon asin mga law books. Ipasara na an kongreso asin papaghadion ta na lang an leyes kan kadlagan na nakasarig sa takot asin huma nin kagadanan.

    Mayo nang nagkokompiyansang magpautang Ta dudang sinda sakuyang mababayadan Urog pang an mga pangangaipo nagdudugang Dai nang nahahagadan nin tabang Kan may trabaho pa, dakol an amiga asin amigoKan mayo na, anas na nagtatarago Kadaklan takot na mautangan o mahagadan tabang Dawa na dati man nindang pinakinabangan Sa arog kaining pangyayari, dakol an nagsasapo Mayo nin kakanon, mayo pa nin sentabo Nagdadanay sa katikapuhan na dai man ginusto Mga biktima pa kan urihon na panahon asin tawo.

    The city ordinance, other-wise known as an Ordinance Promoting Good Governance Practices at the Barangays of Naga City, Establishing the Empowerment and Advance-ment of Barangays on Local Legislation (ENABLE) Pro-gram was authored by Hons.

    naGa to honor best performinG baranGays . . .Vidal P. Castillo, Elmer S. Baldemoro and Esteban Greg R. Abonal III.

    Generally, our objective here is to make our barangay legislators much better and to effect positive changes in their respective barangays thru the enactment of baran-

    gay legislations, either in the form of a resolution or ordi-nances, preferably, which are considered landmark legisla-tions because these are sup-posed to have positive and long lasting effect in the lives of the residents in the baran-gay, Legacion added.

    Barangay Councils will be adjudged based on their efficiency, particularly in the filing of their journals and resolutions, submission of documentary assessments and giving its corresponding rank-ing and evaluation. Tasked to check on these details are members of the Sangguniang Barangay Awards Committee

    headed by Rene Gumba.Winning barangays will

    receive a plaque of ap-preciation and Php 1Mil-lion, Php750,000.00 and Php500,000.00 worth of projects for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, respec-tively.

    This acknowledgment is in continuance of the good

    name that the City of Naga has earned for the past de-cades especially in terms of transparency and account-ability. This program is also the result of the institutional-ization of the various innova-tive programs of the city that raised the standard of lead-ership down to its smallest units.

    Legazpi's migration, development program citedLEGAZPI CITY -- Af-

    ter a three-phase training conducted by the Joint Mi-gration and Development Initiative (JMDI) and par-ticipated in by local gov-ernment units in Bicol, the JMDI has chosen the City Government of Legazpi as one of the best performing cities in the entire Bicol re-gion.

    The measures of selection are migration and develop-ment in local governance, Mayor Noel Rosal said in an interview Wednesday.

    Rosal said the training fo-cused on the mainstreaming migration and development (M&D) plans as well as build-ing and strengthening local M&D institutions and devel-oping, implementing and sus-

    It aims to maximize the potential of migration for lo-cal development through lo-cal authorities and non-state actors by upscaling locally-led M&D initiatives through financial and technical assis-tance and capacity building.

    Rosal said Bicol Univer-sity and the Social Action Center have already organized an Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) Family Association to include them in a representa-

    The city already has a desk for OFW families and other information campaign to pre-vent city workers from illegal recruitment and other forms of human trafficking.

    "We will also localize the Balikbayan website to pave the way for information need-ed by the migrant families," Rosal said.

    He said his office has conducted training for OFW families regarding financial literacy, capacity building and investment.

    The city chief executive disclosed that his adminis-tration will hold an entre-preneurial skills training and implement a pre-migration orientation seminar for those who are interested to work abroad in order for them to

    make themselves ready for any job opportunities.

    Rosal said this will famil-iarize themselves with the culture of other nationalities in order to prevent any culture shock.

    Ola, Legazpi City The Po-lice Regional Office here in-vited some members of the tri-media from Camarines Norte, Albay, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Masbate, Cama-rines Sur and Naga City for the launching and briefing of OPLAN LAMBAT SIBAT recently.

    PRO5s increasing crime rate situation is already treated by drilling down whats work-ing, whats not and I wish ap-proach on its anti crime cam-paign. From the traditional status quo approach of Ba-ra-Bara (Ad Hoc), Kanya-Kanya (Silos), and Ningas-Cogon (Sporadic), the PNPs anti crime campaign shifted to Pagbabago.

    The PNP, through the lead-ership of the SILG, started to respond to the crime situation in the country. This Pagba-bago approach was put into action through the integrated Police Anti Crime Campaign which launched a Deliberate, Programmatic and Sustained (DPS) approach with OPLAN LAMBAT SIBAT. This said campaign had its first pilot test in the National Capital Region since it has a highest population and biggest economic activity, which transcends to a higher crime rate compared to other regions. The PNP also tested this campaign in Region 3 and Region 4A wherein at the pre-sentation conducted by PSupt. Jonathan O. Panganiban, OIC- ROPD shows a great decline on the number of crime rates listed. It also shows that from December 30, 2014 to August

    2, 2015, the crime volumes were reduced from 18% to 40%. PSupt. Panganiban also says that they will implement this campaign on Region 4B, Region 5 and Region 13.

    OPLAN LAMBAT is a wide dragnet across the me-tropolis combined with HIN-DI PATSAMBA Operations such as increased in CHECK-POINTS in those considered as chokepoint or crime hotspot, MOBILE PATROL within the designated land based convey-ance, BEAT/FOOT PATROLS within the designated beat on foot, OPLAN BULABOG conduct saturation drive at the Barangays especially in those crime prone places, OPLAN BAKAL/SITA on persons at bar joints and/or areas consid-ered crime prone or hotspots, INTENSIFIED SERVING OF ARREST WARRANTS in tar-geting criminal suspects, gangs and syndicates listed in the PNP Watch List, OPLAN KA-TOK for physical verification and accounting of registered firearms through house visita-tion, OPLAN GALUGAD is to conduct a saturation drive at critical areas or place where activities like illegal drug pushing, illegal gambling and other street crimes are rampant, AGGRESSIVE ANTI-CAR-NAPPING OPERATIONS, FOCUSED INTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS and POLICE COMMUNITY RELATIONS.

    The PNP uses the term LAMBAT to symbolize the anti-crime strategies imple-mented within a particular area or community with the purpose of preventing and reducing

    crime rates. OPLAN SIBAT is an action

    Intel-driven target focused on arresting Most Wanted Persons (MWPs). Oplan Lambat Sibat also addresses murder, rape, homicide, robbery, theft and carnapping incidents. With the mentioned campaign, the PNP can now address the surging crimes and generate more citi-zens information and coopera-tion.

    The PNP uses the term SI-BAT to symbolize the targeting of a particular wanted criminal or specific person of interest.

    At the forum, PSSupt. Mar-lon Tejada, Chief, CIDG5 had a presentation on cold cases wherein he explains that these numerous cases are those who were not solved with in a pe-riod of six (6) months. This is due to some reasons that some of the cases are politi-cally motivated. He also shares that Masbate province has the biggest number of cold cases. He also mentioned that he fo-cus on the Campaign against Most Wanted Person, Cam-paign against criminal per-sons, Campaign against illegal Drugs, Campaign against loose firearms and private armed groups. PSSupt. Jacinto Culver N. Sison, OIC RCDS/Chief, RIDMD made a presentation on the comparative crime data and situation report and PSupt. Edwin DL. Portento, OIC RID also made a presenta-tion on the accomplishments of Most Wanted Persons with comparative reports.

    PCInsp. Nannie Precy Al-cala made the presentation for criminality situation in Bicol

    Region wherein it shows that there is a bit increase of 5% in Naga City for the crime volumes from Jan-Oct 2014 at 5,993 to Jan-Oct 2015 at 6,313. (Source: PPO/CPO). But the most alarming is the crime against in person where-in rape cases increased by 8% from Jan-Oct 2014 at 14% to Jan-Oct 2015 at 22%. Cama-rines Sur has a total of 241 rape cases followed by Albay with 173, Masbate 107, Cam. Norte 98, Sorsogon 64 and Naga City 57. (Source: PPO/CPO). It also shows that Naga City has the most number of theft at 1,275 cases from Jan-Oct 2015. LEE DULIESCO II

    the Christmas festivities ex-plained, this years motif of the Christmas dcors were white and gold, white signi-fies the citys advocacy, as center for good governance and gold for its achievement, as the most competitive city for 2015, she noted.

    City governments events and promotions office head Allen Reodanga said, the Christmas festival was actu-ally started by the late Mayor and DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo during his long term as Naga Citys chief executive, to

    commemorate every Decem-ber the citys inaugural rites as an independent city on Dec. 15, 1948.

    Reondanga also said that the Kamundagan festival has also drawn facebook inquiries and well-wishers mostly from Nagueos abroad every time it is held in December. In this years preparation, the city budgeted some P1.5 million for lights, Christmas decors and gift giving to poor city dwellers dubbed as Pasko sa Barangay from Dec. 1 to 20th this year. -- SONNY SALES

    Presidents call for more fo-cused programs of assistance to MSMEs.

    It aims to reduce poverty by encouraging and assist-ing MSMEs in developing innovations to enhance op-erational efficiency and boost productivity and competitive-ness.

    She said that this year two projects are for funding re-lease for the upgrading fabri-cation of muffler/exhaust for motorcycles and cars in the amount of P625,800 and for the upgrading of metal shop business in the amount of P753,500. The beneficiaries of the projects will pay the same without interest.

    Belgado said that there are other five (5) project propos-als on process for approval and funding.

    The priority sectors cov-ered by the SETUP are food processing; furniture; gifts, housewares, decors; agricul-ture, marine, aquaculture; met-als and engineering; including information communication technology and pharmaceuti-cals; and health products.

    She said that they assist MSMEs through the provi-sion of technology, product testing, packaging and label-

    use technoloGy - dost . . .ing design and execution.

    Any firm or company, cooperative, association, or individual firm based in the Philippines and majority owned by Filipino citizens or any micro, small and medium scale business firm classified under the identified priority sectors as well as individual firm who are willing to apply technological improvements in its operations can apply to the program.

    She also informed that they are now open for a new scholarship program for ju-nior college students aside from their regular scholarship for high school students at the Philippine Science High School and college students starting freshman.

    Meanwhile the DOST is also encouraging the Local Government Units (LGUs), Non-Government Organiza-

    tions (NGOs) and Educa-tional Institutions to put up a DOST STARBOOKS, the first Philippine Science Digi-tal Library.

    Science and Technol-ogy Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosk Station known as STAR-BOOKS contains thousands of digitized science and tech-nology resources in various formats like text and video and audio. These resources are placed in specially de-signed pods set in a user-friendly interface.

    The DOST will install the kiosk for free and will pro-vide training for clients des-ignated focal person.

    In the province there were already four STAR-BOOKS particularly in Ca-marines Norte State College (CNSC), Sta. Elena Com-munity College, Mabini Colleges and Labo Science High School.

    P500.00 has been allocated for this purpose giving prior-ity to the poor as identified at the database.

    Aguas said the LGU is firm in the issuance of the Certifi-cate of Indigency especially if it will be used for legal mat-

    sto. dominGo albay vies . . .ters of which the Listahanan list of poor households is the primary tool used for such concerns.

    The Gawad Listahanan is an award given to Local Gov-ernment Units (LGU) for pro-viding services and assistance to the Listahanan-identified poor families.

    It aims to promote the convergence of all social pro-tection stakeholders on the identified poor to effectively address the different aspects of poverty.

    The competition is classi-fied into municipal, city and provincial categories. The winner for each category will receive a plaque and a cash in-centive of P50, 000.

    The winners will receive the award on January next year in time for the DSWD anniversary.

    The sub-committee for Gawad

    ment of Trade and Industry, the Department of Education, Philippine National Police, the Bureau of Fire Protection and EcoWaste Coalition have joined hands in launching an anti-firecrack campaign along the theme: Sa Ingay Walang Sablay, sa Paputok Goodbye Kamay.

    Last year, the BMC admit-ted at least 4 patients injured by firecrackers, compared to 6 in 2013 and 9 in 2012.

    Nationwide, the Fire-works-Related Injury Sur-veillance recorded zero death last year and a total of 860 cases, 16% lower than the 2013 record of 1,018 injuries. Of the 860 cases, 840 were due to firecrackers, 13 from stray bullets, and 7 were due to firecracker ingestion. Pic-colo with 32% caused most of the injuries, followed by kwitis (15%), unknown fire-crackers (11%), luces (7%), and fountain (5%).

    In a related story, Police Senior Supt. Augusto M. Marquez Jr., acting Philip-pine National Police Bicol regional director, on Friday directed all the provincial directors to launch a mas-sive and thorough inspection of all the establishments in their respective areas of re-sponsibility that are selling firecrackers.

    Done in pursuit of "Oplan Ligtas Paskuhan 2015, Marquez also ordered the confiscation of all banned firecrackers like the Watusi, Piccolo, Super Lolo, Atomic Triangle, Large Judas Belt,

    Marquez said victim Jay-An Antonio De Vera, a stu-dent and resident of Iraya Norte, Oas, was rushed to the Bicol Regional Teaching and Training Hospital (BRTTH) in Legazpi City.

    The fireworks display was done at about 2 p.m. in cel-ebration of the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the patroness of the town.

    After the event, De Vera and his two companions de-cided to gather the unspent powder of the explosives, place these in a can and ig-nited the contents.

    boy, 11, injured in firecracker . . .The burning powder ex-

    ploded, causing burns in De Vera's face and body.

    He is now being treated at the BRTTH.

    The victim's two friends were spared as they were able to run when the powder was still burning.

    "This should serve as a les-son to those who still plan to use firecrackers in the celebra-tion of Christmas and New Year despite our strong warning and strict implementation of the firecracker ban," Marquez said. Authorities are investigating the incident. -PNA

    Large Bawang, pillbox, boga, Goodbye Philippines, Bin Laden, Mother Rock-ets, Lolo Thunder, Coke-in-Can, Kwiton, Atomic Bomb, Five Star, Pla-Pla, Og, Giant Whistle bomb, Kabasi, and other unlabeled and imported firecrackers.

    The order aims to bring down or possible eradicate the number of injuries, fatali-ties and destruction to prop-erties as a result of using py-rotechnics.

    Marquez also banned in-discriminate firing during the traditional celebrations of Christmas and New Year Day.

    He said that in buying firecrackers, one should look for the PS mark and check if the fireworks are properly labeled with the name of firework, classification and intended use, brand or trade name, name and address of manufacturer, and the words "Made in the Philippines".

    This is part of the mini-mum labeling requirements under the Philippine Con-sumer Act.

    Those who are found

    guilty of buying, distributing and using illegal firecrackers and pyrotechnics will be pun-ished by a fine of not less than Php20,000 but not more than Php30,000 and imprisonment of not less than six months but not more than one year or both tantamount to the charg-es he/she is facing.

    The PNP, as mandated in Republic Act 7183, regulates the sale, manufacture and distribution of fireworks.

    Under the law, any person who desires to manufacture, sell or distribute fireworks and other pyrotechnic de-vices shall file his application for the issuance of license or business permit with the Chief PNP through the pro-vincial director.

    But before the PNP can grant a permit, he should secure first a Fire Safety In-spection Certificate from the city/municipal fire marshal having jurisdiction on him.

    The law also prohibits the sale of imported finished fireworks and only Depart-ment of Trade and Industry-certified manufacturers are allowed to import chemicals or explosive ingredients for the production of fireworks.

    Listahanan of the National Project Management Office has conduct-ed validation visit on November 28-29, 2015 to screen and review the program documents submit-ted by the LGU and hold random interviews to their beneficiaries. -PIA5
