Posted by Jani Arnaiz, Chief Editor on February 12, 2015, 8:46 pm

Heavy rains in the Eastern Visayas area during the past 12 months have resulted in landslides, eroding the protective covers of the two piers or columns of the 350-meter-long structure, built from Nov. 17, 2006, to Aug. 2, 2009, by the Arroyo administration with a P1.24-billion funding from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica).

MAASIN CITY–A graft complaint was filed against Vice Gov. Sheffered Tan, his wife and an official of the Mines Geo-Science Bureau (MGB) for allowing two private entities to quarry the province's biggest river even if they had no authority to do so.

Aside from the vice governor, named respondents in the complaint filed before the Office of the Ombudsman in the Visayas based in Cebu City were Tan's wife, Sogod Mayor Imelda Uy-Tan and Alilo Ensomo, MGB director for Eastern Visayas.

The complaint was filed by Eriberto Bandibas, official of Sogod Small Scale Fishermen Association who advocates against the quarry of Subang Daku River.

MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, February 4 (PIA)  --  The treasurer of this province disclosed that sand and gravel concessionaires along the mighty Subangdaku river in the town of Sogod has accumulated unpaid dues in the amount of P 8 Million. 

Provincial treasurer Jesse Go, in a meeting at the RKK Function House Monday which discussed the Subangdaku issue in relation to the recent Court of Appeals ruling, said that his office had sent demand letters to these delinquent operators but to no avail. 

This developed as the provincial government mapped out moves to implement the January 15, 2015 resolution of the Court of Appeals 20th Division overruling an earlier decision of the Regional Trial Court Branch 39 in Sogod.

January 27, 2015

MAASIN CITY–The Court of Appeals has indefinitely stopped a lower court from implementing its order to lift the cease and desist order issued by the provincial government against sand and gravel permittees who wanted to quarry from the province's biggest river.

In an order promulgated on January 15, 2015, the CA 20th division partly granted a writ of preliminary injunction order against Judge Rolando Gonzalez of the Regional Trial Court Branch 39 in Sogod town, Southern Leyte until further orders of the Court.

“Wherefore, premises considered, the application for a writ of preliminary injunction is partly granted,” The CA ruling states. “Accordingly, let a writ of preliminary injunction be issued enjoining the implementation of the RTC Resolution dated 16 June 2014, until further orders of the Court.”

PALO, Leyte - In a fortuitous twist of fate, three brothers—a police official, an Army colonel and a military chaplain—have been thrust into the challenge of a lifetime: Securing Pope Francis during his visit on Saturday.

Msgr. Tirso Dolina, 55, chief chaplain of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, and his two younger brothers—Chief Supt. Asher Dolina, 53, police regional director for Eastern Visayas, and Col. Dinoh Dolina, 51, commander of the 802nd Army Brigade based in Ormoc City—will lead 15,000 police officers, soldiers and clergymen to ensure the security of the Pope.

The leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics will meet with survivors of last year’s Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan) and the 2013 Bohol earthquake as part of his four-day visit to the Philippines.
