Gay Filipino in US spared from deportation

LOS ANGELES— Dennis Vitug was set to be deported to the Philippines until he told the courts that he may no longer return to his homeland because he is persecuted there for being gay.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Vitug, who was ordered to return to the Philippines because of drug convictions, was spared from deportation by the San Francisco-based US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals when he said that while in the Philippines, he was beaten, harassed, and denied work for being gay.

Vitug moved to the United States in 1999 and had overstayed his tourist visa. While living and working in Los Angeles, he was also studying fashion design. He is reportedly HIV-positive and had bouts with drug addiction.

The Los Angeles Philippine Consulate General's Office is trying to determine if any of the California consulates are monitoring the case.

Though there are some cases of gay discrimination if the Philippines, I think Vitug is lying. Filipinos are not that cruel to Homosexuals.

Executive Secretary Pacquito Ochoa Jr

Malacañang defended Executive Secretary Pacquito Ochoa Jr. against reports that tagged him in the alleged corruption within the embattled Bureau of Customs (BOC).

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte told that press that the reports that Executive Secretary Pacquito Ochoa Jr. is among the "padrinos" or godfathers protecting supposed corrupt leaders in the BOC is untrue.

"I understand that several sources have attributed some things to some personalities that have been named," Valte said at a press briefing.

"The ES has nothing to do with any transactions, any illegal or otherwise, that have been mentioned in the course of these reports. And that is it," she added.

Valte said it is "not uncommon" that the name of the Executive Secretary or any Cabinet official to be floated in such controversies

"At this point there are names that are being floated... He (Ochoa) said he would also want to hear these names," said Valte.

Corruption allegations in the BOC resurfaced after President Benigno Aquino III himself lambasted the agency for the supposed malpractice in the bureau.

He said that according to the Department of Finance, more than P200 billion in revenue slips through Philippine borders without going into public coffers.

"Saan po kayo kumukuha ng kapal ng mukha ang mga kawani sa ahensyang ito?" Aquino asked in his speech.

Cadavero sister said that they paid off jail officials, police to escape

MANILA, Philippines — The alleged leader of the Ozamiz robbery gang, Ricky Cadavero paid the jail warden and guards of the national penitentiary in Muntinlupa City to let him escape. He also paid policemen of Cavite for his protection according to his sister Rosalinda, a Saudi Arabia-based housewife.

“They killed him for fear he would spill information about these payoffs. They knew that because of pressure he would eventually speak out,” said Rosalinda, 37, who is married to an Indian national in Saudi Arabia.

Rosalinda and her mother, Luzviminda, who are natives of General Santos City, admitted that Ricky, also called “Kambal,” 36, had led criminal activities in pursuit of money.

“But where did it go? Look at this, he had not even left a single cent for his burial. All the money he had stolen went to them (police and jail guards),” Rosalinda said in an interview at the Eastern Funeral Homes in Muntinlupa City where the body of Cadavero was being autopsied.

She added that in a telephone conversation sometime last December, Ricky told her that he was able to escape after he paid the jail warden of the New Bilibid Prison P500,000 and the jail guards P200,000 to P300,000 each.

“They allowed him to easily slip out of the (NBP),” Rosalina said. This was contrary to police claims last December 8 that three men posing as Cadavero’s visitors fired at the guards at the Reception and Diagnostic Center (RDC) where he was being held prior to being transferred to the major compound.

Chief Supt. Benito Estipona, the sacked head of the Calabarzon police who was the director of the Southern Police District at the time, complained back then that the escape, which happened at 6 a.m., was reported to the police three hours later.

Trader kidnapped in QC rescued in Davao; 2 kidnappers killed

A Manila-based businesswoman Sally Chua, in her late 50s was abducted in Quezon City last weekend was rescued in Davao City Thursday, even as two of her suspected abductors were killed while a third was wounded in an encounter with police.

Police in Davao are now tracking down at least 11 other suspects who managed to elude arrest during the encounter, radio dzBB reported.

The report quoted Davao Region police head Chief Superintendent Jaime Morente as saying that the victim was abducted in Quezon City July 5.

Her abductors brought her to Davao City by land. They demanded a ransom of P150 million but lowered the demand to P15 million.

An initial investigation showed the police tailed the suspects after the money was withdrawn at a bank in the city.

But when the abductors were cornered by police, they allegedly opened fire, prompting police to fire back.

The 11 other suspects fled aboard a sport-utility vehicle, even as police initiated a dragnet operation to catch them.

Senior Supt. Ronald Dela Rosa, the city police director said the group was considered to be “big-time” and is made up mainly of locals with “possible connections to an international syndicate.”

The 10-minute “shootout” took place following repeated warnings from Mayor Rodrigo Duterte that criminals have to leave the city “horizontally (reads voluntarily) or vertically (in coffins)” as they have no place here.

Dela Rosa said the police first tried to “corner” the three white vehicles parked outside the Allied Bank on Claro M. Recto St. past noontime but three armed men started shooting at them.

The still unidentified driver and two other gunmen were killed in the process. He said a Philippine Army 2007 ring was found on his finger.

Dela Rosa said another suspect, who accompanied Chua inside the bank, was arrested but about 10 other cohorts, including two women, managed to escape aboard the two other vehicles.

De la Rosa said Chua was kidnapped from Del Monte Village in Quezon City on July 5 and had convinced her abductors to arrange for the pay-off to be made here.

Chua, dela Rosa said, had recounted they travelled all the way from Manila on board the three vehicles so she could withdraw the agreed ransom amount of P15 million.

He said Chua had told him and Duterte that she was hoping the mayor and the police would not let the kidnappers escape, which was why she tried hard to convince them to come to Davao City.

But dela Rosa said before Chua told them these things, the National Capital Region police office had already alerted the Davao City police office about the possibility of the payoff taking place here.

“So we have known it beforehand that they were coming,” he said.

Dela Rosa said the police would do its best to capture the remaining suspects.
