Philippine Archive / Renovated jail facilities in Ormoc City, Leyte

Improving Leyte jail conditions
Improving Leyte jail conditions:A public-private partnership
Tacloban City (November 2 2010) – The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) recently turned over the renovated jail facilities in Ormoc City, Leyte to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).

Andres Casal, ICRC’s water and habitat coordinator, said that among the substantial improvements in the Leyte jail is in its kitchen which has now a tiled flooring, three stoves, a stainless steel preparation table, and a new spanking sink; adjacent too is a new toilet.

The Geneva-based humanitarian organization also improved the jail’s ground reservoir by installing a 4,000-liter capacity storage tank for ready access to safe drinking water for its 700 detainees.

ICRC also enhanced ventilation by replacing a concrete wall in the main cell building with steel bars to allow freer air circulation.

Daphnee Maret, head of Tacloban ICRC proudly announced that in addition to the improvements made in the Leyte jail, a new infirmary complete with medical equipment had also been installed.

This project was made possible with the involvement of the inmate in the construction while the ICRC provided construction materials and technical support.

Call for Action

These improvements are part of the “Call for Action” process that the Red Cross launched early this year to help government upgrade penal infrastructures, tuberculosis management in jails, and the criminal justice process. So far, nearly 13,000 detainees in 27 BJMP jails and four provincial jails have benefited from the ICRC’s structural projects between January and August 2010.

Since 2007, the ICRC has been working with national authorities as part of the “Call for Action” process to address the causes of jail congestion and its consequences on health and living conditions of all detainees.

To this end, the ICRC has worked with the national authorities since November 2009 to set up a mechanism that will coordinate existing paralegal programs bringing together technical experts and decision-makers from the different pillars of the criminal justice system and involving the three different branches of the government.(RO8)

Secretary Robredo graces the 100 Days Progress Report and Mass Oath-taking of newly-elected PBs of Surigao del Norte
2010: SURIGAO CITY - DILG Secretary Jesse M. Robredo graced the 100 Days Progress Report of the newly-installed Provincial Governor of Surigao del Norte, Hon. Sol F. Matugas, and the mass oath-taking of newly-elected punong barangays of Surigao del Norte at the Provincial Convention Center, Surigao City.
Secretary Robredo was invited to the momentous affair to recommend policy options for more improved governance in the Province that focuses specifically on transparency accountability and people’s participation. The affair was also designed to update the Honorable Secretary on the socio-economic situation of the Province.

Robredo emphasized that some services of the government should be given to the private sector and not to the local government units alone. He made it clear that the LGUs and the non-government organizations should work together as a team to ensure efficiency in public service. He cited his success story in good governance when he was still a local chief executive of Naga City.

“People are encouraged to pay taxes because people are satisfied sa binabalik na services ng LGU,” said Robredo in his message during the activity.

Secretary Robredo also cited the significance of providing a Citizen’s Charter copy in every household to ensure transparency in local government transactions. He also stressed the importance of health, education and information as indispensable goals in achieving excellence in local governance.

Governor Sol F. Matugas presented her 100 days Progress Report which was aimed towards achieving HEALS until the end of her term. HEALS is an acronym for her program which means health, education and environment, agriculture and aquaculture, livelihood and tourism, spiritual renewal, social welfare and security.

On the said occasion, the signing of the Memoranda of Agreement of the project BEST (Barangay Education Strategic Team) and the Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS) project took place. Project BEST is a joint effort of the DepED and LGUs thru Barangay Council, aimed at addressing the existing GAPS between the current education status and the goals of the Education for All (EFA) of 2015, consistent with the Constitutional State policy to protect and promote the right of all citizens to quality education. The Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS), is a joint project of the DILG and DTI which is aimed at achieving through reforms the reduction of the cost of doing business in the localities and improving facilities and systems to address both local and national business concerns.

The awarding of certificates to 3 Best Performers on Revenue Collection of the municipalities of Surigao del Norte also took place during the affair.

A Press Conference and Consultation Meeting with Secretary Robredo, Cong. Matugas, Cong. Romarate, Gov. Matugas, SP Members, City and Municipal Mayors and members of the DILG Regional Management Committee was conducted after the affair. (Mary Christine Anthonette M. Salise, DILG-13/PIA-Caraga)

Philippine Archive / Rebels operating in the hinterlands of Northern Samar
« on: December 15, 2019, 12:13:47 PM »
Two more rebels embrace 8ID’s call to surrender
Tacloban City (November 2 2010) – Two (2) more rebels operating in the hinterlands of Northern Samar voluntarily gave up their ideology in the morning of October 28, 2010.
This is in line with the standing call of the Army’s 8th Infantry Division to the New People’s Army (NPA) to lay down their arms and return to the mainstream society to re-experience the genuine democracy, Lt. Col. Noel Vestuir of the 8th ID informed.

Alias Noli and alias Speed, whose identity are still undisclosed as of press time, are brothers and both residing in Barangay Balud, Silvino Lobos town. These were revealed through custodial debriefing conducted by the 8ID.

Lt. Col. Vestuir said that in an initial report from the 8ID’s 803rd Infantry Brigade, Noli and Speed are both under the leadership of a certain alias “Pruding” of Northern Samar Provincial Party Committee (NSPPC).

The duo also revealed that the NSPPC is now experiencing unstable operations because of the impact of the recent major engagement transpired between 8ID troopers and their groups all around the Samar Island.

It can be recalled that weeks ago, enemy main camp and numbers of encampments and safe houses fell in the hands of the 8ID troopers following the intensified combat operations including the recovery of assorted high powered fire arms, war material caches, piles of food stuffs, medical paraphernalia, personal belongings, subversive document and other materials that greatly impacted their underground operations in the distant barrios.

“Guikukuri-i an kabutangan didto. Tikang sa pagka-engkwentro sa makaduru-dulain nga among mga kausa sa naglabay nga mga semana, baga nagkasamok, samok na sa sulod ngan nawara na liwat an am nga butang na am guingagamit sa am operasyon”, the duo disclosed.

(Our situation gets worse inside. It started after the encounter of our different groups against the government troops. It resulted to misunderstanding between our ranks and our important materials used for operations were also lost.)

“Damo ba gad an naruruyag sa am grupo nga sumorender kay damo na an nagkukuri sa solod. Naawa man an kadam-an sa am sa nahinabo sa am kausa na maupay na an kabutangan dihan sa gawa”, the duo added.

(Many of our members really wanted to surrender because it is really difficult inside. Most of them feel envy to others who earlier surrendered and now having a good life in the open.)

Meanwhile, 8 ID commander Major General Mario Chan expressed his appreciation to Silvino Lobos Mayor Edmund Guillamac who is also responsible for the surrender of the said rebels. He further acknowledged the good partnership between the local government and the Army for common good of the people.

Furthermore, Major General Chan reiterated his call to the members of the underground movement to lay down their arms and reintegrate to the mainstream society. He also emphasized that he is more than happy to see these people peacefully reaching their arms to the government for the sake of freedom and democracy than through a bloody resort of struggles.

“As vanguard for peace and democracy in Eastern Visayas, we want to make sure that our people will have peaceful sleep at night, away from harm and far from the danger of the NPAs who sow terror in expense of power. “

“Your 8ID will continue to intensify its operations, for you to be able to celebrate Christmas meaningfully and to welcome the New Year more peacefully,” General Chan said. (PIA 8 with report from 8ID)

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has started accepting applications for the revival of expired corporations, pursuant to Republic Act No. 11232, or the Revised Corporation Code of the Philippines.

The Guidelines on the Revival of Expired Corporations, issued through SEC Memorandum Circular No. 23, Series of 2019, became effective upon its publication on December 6.

Under the Guidelines, an expired corporation whose certificate of registration has been suspended or revoked for non-filing of reports may revive its existence, provided it shall file the proper petition and settle the corresponding penalties.

An expired corporation whose corporate name has already been validly reused by another existing corporation may likewise apply for a revival of corporate existence, provided it shall change its corporate name.

On the other hand, the Guidelines shall not apply to corporations which have completed the liquidation of their assets or have been dissolved by virtue of Sections 6(c) and 6(d) of Presidential Decree No. 902-A, as amended by Presidential Decree No. 1799, as well as those whose certificates of registration have been revoked for reasons other than non-filing of reports.

An expired corporation may also not apply for revival of corporate existence when it has already availed of re-registration, except when the re-registered corporation has undertaken to undergo voluntary dissolution or change its corporate name.

At least a majority of the board of directors or trustees and of the outstanding capital stock or members, in the case of a nonstock corporation, must vote in favor of the revival of the expired corporation.

The expired corporation shall file with the SEC a verified petition for revival, which shall state that there is no intra-corporate controversy and that no third persons nor government agency will be prejudiced by its revival, among others.

If there has been a change in the composition of the stockholders or members, the petition must include a reconciliation of the changes from the corporation’s expiration to the stockholders’ or members’ approval of the revival.

Along with the petition, the expired corporation shall file copies of its certificate of incorporation, articles of incorporation, revived articles of incorporation showing the proposed changes in its corporate term, general information sheet and audited financial statements as of expiration, and other documentary requirements.

The SEC shall also require a favorable recommendation of the appropriate government agency in the case of banks, banking and quasi-banking institutions, preneed, insurance and trust companies, non-stock savings and loans associations, pawnshops, corporations engaged in money service business, and other financial intermediaries.

The petition may be filed with the SEC Company Registration and Monitoring Department or any of the Commission’s satellite and extension offices.

Within 15 days from filing, the expired corporation shall publish the petition in a newspaper of general circulation. It shall file with the SEC pieces of evidence of the publication 15 days thereafter.

Parties in interest may file a verified opposition to the revival within 15 days from the date of publication. They shall pre-mark all evidence to be introduced upon filing of the opposition or during a scheduled conference.

If it finds the petition meritorious, the SEC shall issue a certificate of revival of corporate existence, which shall provide for a perpetual corporate term unless the revived corporation opts for a specific term.

A revived corporation shall have two years from the issuance of its certificate of revival to comply with the provisions of the Revised Corporation Code.

The revival of expired corporations is pursuant to Section 11 of the Revised Corporation Code, which provides for the perpetual existence of corporations. Under the old Code, corporate terms were capped at 50 years.

As part of the shift to perpetual corporate terms, the Revised Corporation Code allows an expired corporation to apply for the revival of its existence, together with all the rights and privileges under its certificate of incorporation and subject to all of its duties, debts and liabilities existing prior to its revival.

For the complete list of requirements and application process, refer to the Guidelines on the Revival of Expired Corporations on the SEC website.

Statement of PCOO Sec Andanar on NPA attack in Eastern Samar

We vehemently condemn the NPA attack in Brgy. Libuton which left two dead and wounded several individuals, including three children and policemen.

The loss of life and the violence experienced by the victims are reprehensible. We can only imagine the grief of their loved ones who would have spent the Christmas season with them in good health, had it not been for the senseless act of these terrorists. Our thoughts go out to all of you in this difficult time.

We commend the police, the emergency personnel, and the civilians who helped and protected those that they could. Their courage and selflessness are admirable.

As Communications Chief of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), we will continue to communicate and engage with local officials and civil society groups and convey the government's resolve to end conflict.

Rest assured, this administration will continue its fight against terrorism and insurgency for the safety and security of all Filipinos, and in order to achieve true and lasting peace for the country

Philippine Provinces / New People’s Army in Talaingod
« on: December 15, 2019, 11:43:34 AM »
PIA DAVAO DEL NORTE—- Talaingod Mayor Jonnie Libayao highly condemns the continued presence of the New People’s Army in Talaingod.

In a phone query this morning, he said the death of a civilian farmer caught in a crossfire on Dec 13 between government troops and armed NPA rebels at Sitio Kaylawa, Sto. Nino, would not have happened if not for the rebels’ continued influence that is bringing harm to the community.

Libayao had released an official statement regarding the incident. His administration had already declared the NPA as persona non grata, and had manifested its abhorence of the NPAs.

Libayao reiterates his condemnation of the “harrassment” initiated by the NPAs as “it inflicted anxiety, distress and fear” among residents in communities of Talaingod. (JMDAbangan)

PAG-IBIG offers 7% dividends for
tax-free govt-guaranteed savings

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Dec. 14, (PIA)—You still got that extra cash with you?

While contemplating on putting this in a savings stash in your favorite bank can earn you a little bit and offering you that easy chance to draw from it when you cash-starve, the government, through Pagtutulungan sa kinabukasan, Ikaw, Bangko, Industryia at Gobyerno (PAG-IBIG) Savings Program is one worth a second hard look.

In a bank of your choice, the maximum time deposit interest rate for your P1,000 for six months can go as high as 1.13% or at the least, .50%.

With PAG-IBIG Fund’s Modified Pag-ibig (MP) 2 Savings Program, this voluntary savings program of P500 per remittance or more if you have more cash, this will earn government-guaranteed and tax-free dividends at a higher rate than the already high interest rate of the regular PAG-IBIG Savings, according to PAG-IBIG Fund information officer Leonardo Cirujales.

Bringing this rare offer at the Kapihan sa PIA, Cirujales bared that this savings program is designed for PAG-IBIG Fund members and those with other income sources, who wish to save more and earn higher dividends

PAG-IBIG MP2 Savings Program saves you more with the assured 7% dividend rate receivable in annual credits to your Landbank of Development Bank of the Philippines savings, or through a check payable to the MP2 saver, or upon the five-year maturity of the MP2 with compounded dividends, he added.

In fact, the fund’s information officer said the savings funds has no limit.

“One can save as much as one wants under the MP2 Savings Program. If one wishes to remit an amount over 500,000, he will however have to issue a personal or manager’s check for the account,” he instructed.

And with retirees and pensioners who are spending lesser than what they get annually, the program is also open.

Regardless of age, retirees and pensioners with at least 24 monthly savings prior to retirement, can save under the MP2 savings, Cirujales stressed.

So why do you have to opt for this better savings program again?

PAG-IBIG Fund’s MP2 Savings program offers a minimum P500 per remittance, or a one-time savings of a higher amount, is assured of at least 7.0% annual dividends compared to only 1.13% from other banks.

While commercial bank’s minimum time deposits of P1,000 for a minimum of six months can earn 1.13%, MP2 can already earn 7% in a year and onwards to maturity.

And then, bank accounts are always subject to taxes that the interest sometimes would be drowned by the taxes paid for the account.

And while MP2 Savings is locked on for the next five years, this tax-free savings program presents an opportunity for the saver to impose financial discipline considering that unlike ordinary bank accounts, the money can be easily drawn, causing the principal to be depleted and the plan to save can easily be drained away.
