HINDI AKO NARCO-POLITICIAN-V. MAYOR MARCAIDA NG P. PRINCESA, PALAWAN

“WALA”ako sa listahan ng Narco-Politician” Ito ang binigyan diin kahapon ni Puerto Princesa Vice Mayor Luis Marcaida matapos na mapag-alaman ng kanyang kampo na mayroong isinasagawang signature campaign sa kanilang bayan laban sa kanya na idinadawit bilang protector ng droga, upang mapasama sa listahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo ‘Roa Duterte. Sa isinagawang press conference, isiniwalat ni Marcaida sa mga mamamahayag ang inilabas na open letter laban sa kanya na naglalayon na palabasin na siya ay protector ng illegal drug activities sa kaniilang bayan. “Dahil dito ay nagdulot ng labis na pag-alala at takot ang kanyang pamilya ,hinala niya na ang baka ang mga taong nasa likod nito ay may masamang binabalak sa akin o di kaya sa aking pamilya at palalabasin nila na ako ay isang narco-politician pero ang akin tignan muli ang mahabang listahan ng mga narco-politician na inilabas ng ating mahal na pangulo ay hindi ako kasama sa listahan,” paliwanag pa ni Marcaida. Sinabi pa ng opisyal na siya ay bukas sakaling ibig na isailalim siya sa imbestigasyon ng PDEA, PNP o anumang ahensya para ma linis ang kanyang pangalan at upang mapatunayan na rin na isa lamang ‘demolition job’ ito ng kanyang kalaban sa pulitika.

Cuy is warning the public to be vigilant and report scammers who solicit nominations to be appointed as Officer in Charge (OIC) Punong Barangay or Barangay Chairman in exchange for money.

We are still awaiting further instructions and developments about the 2017 Barangay Elections, so we encourage the public to report such illegal activities to the DILG,” he stressed. He said that it is imperative to wait for the Congress’ final say while at the same time, staying clear from some exploitative and deceitful people who try to take advantage of the hiatus. In a directive released recently, Cuy said that the Department does not sanction nor endorse any and all forms of solicitation regarding appointments to posts in the government. He also encouraged people to ignore SMS or text messages asking for money, favors or any other matter in exchange for appointment to government positions. “Please do not entertain or fall prey to these scammers,” he said.

400 LGUs nationwide still need fire trucks – DILG

Around 400 municipalities nationwide still do not have their own firetrucks to immediately respond during fire emergencies, according to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). DILG Officer-in-Charge Catalino S. Cuy feels sorry that some of these towns could have been the recipients of the 24 new Rosenbauer fire trucks that remain stuck in the Port of Batangas since April this year. The said 24 units are part of the second batch of Rosenbauer fire trucks from Austria which are now the subject of a pending petition before the Supreme Court, questioning the firetrucks deal. “With the said firetrucks, these towns should now have been in a much better position to provide timely and efficient fire services to their constituents,” said Cuy. He, however, explained that the Department is in active consultation with the Office of the Solicitor General which has advised the DILG to wait until the issue is resolved by the Court before proceeding with the firetrucks distribution. “The fire trucks are really of superior quality but we could not just push through with the distribution right away because of the current situation,” he noted. He said that the deal with Austrian government was entered into by the Department with clearance from the Department of Finance (DOF), Department of Justice (DOJ), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), and the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA). The Department...

DILG to fire bureau: Intensify fire safety inspection on high rise establishments

Interior and Local Government Officer-in-Charge Undersecretary Catalino Cuy reminds the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) to intensify fire safety inspection on high-rise buildings or establishments. Cuy issued the reminder following the 24-1 Grenfell Tower inferno fire in London’s North Kensington district that left 30 people dead, and several people injured. “We do not want a Grenfell Tower fire incident to happen in our country. Let us therefore ensure that high-rise buildings are regularly inspected and they comply with fire safety standards,” says Cuy. The BFP is required by law to conduct fire safety inspection of all buildings and establishments to determine their compliance on the provisions of the Fire Code of the Philippines. Buildings or high-rise establishments must have fire alarm systems, fire detectors, fire extinguishers, automatic fire sprinklers system (AFSS), among others. They must also have their own team’s employees or fire brigade to be trained by the fire bureau. Cuy mentions that the BFP-NCR led by Sr. Supt. Wilberto Rico Neil Kwan Tui has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders as Metro Manila has around 1,700 high-rise buildings or establishments. Cities with high-rise establishments are mostly found in Makati, Manila, Quezon, Pasig, Pasay, Muntinlupa and...
