Parañaque City police officers arrest gun ban violators

According to a GMA Network news report, Parañaque City police officers arrested three people for allegedly violating the implemented ban of guns in relation to the State of the Nation Address (SONA). The notable thing here is that the apprehension happened outside of Parañaque City.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the GMA Network news report. Some parts in boldface…

Parañaque City cops arrested three people on Monday for violation of the ongoing six-day gun ban for the safety of the first State of the Nation Address of President Bongbong Marcos.

Unang Balita reported on Monday — SONA Day – that authorities acting on a tip tailed and cornered the suspects on Ongpin Street in Binondo, Manila.

Police said the suspects immediately surrendered.

An initial police investigation indicates the suspects were carrying service firearms as they were supposedly private security agents of a company.

Authorities said the three will face complaints for violating the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition.

According to the report, the suspects have refused to give any further statement.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this latest news development? Could there be gun smuggling or a lot of loose firearms (unregistered weapons) within the City of Parañaque that could be connected to this recent development?

COVID-19 Crisis: Philippines pandemic exit strategy coming

It has been over two years since the entire Philippines first got setback economically and socially by the COVID-19 crisis. Until now, people, private organizations and businesses are still struggling to fully recover from the varied effects that come with government-imposed restrictions, limitations on business-related activities, and the public’s complacency towards COVID-19. It is bad enough that the Philippines now has a core of anti-vaccine fanatics who are misinforming and scaring people while offering no real solutions to the problems.

Speaking of solutions, a pandemic exit strategy is brewing high up in the government and it should be sent to President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., soon, according to a recent report by the Manila Bulletin.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

A Cabinet member has committed that the proposed pandemic exit strategy crafted by a panel of medical experts will be endorsed to President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Former presidential adviser and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion said that Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Benhur Abalos will endorse the proposal which the government can adopt to help the country transition from pandemic to normalcy.

In a statement, Concepcion said “Abalos said he will endorse the presentation of the proposals to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.”

Abalos also said that he “will organize a meeting with the Department of Health (DOH) to initiate more vaccinations at the community level.”

Abalos also agreed on the importance of raising booster vaccination rates to 70 percent of the eligible population which is included in the pandemic exit proposal.

“Kailangan ng isa pa. Isa pa para sa mga pamilya, isa pa para sa komunidad (We need one more One more for our families, one more for our community),” Abalos said.

With this, Concepcion also renewed his call to push for one more massive effort for vaccination.

Complacency is really the problem. There is no sense of urgency because people don’t see what might happen if our wall of immunity starts to weaken,” he said.

Concepcion explained that re-infections are quite possible, and that cases of long Covid have grave consequences on productivity, and ultimately, the economy.

He echoed Abalos’ statement that “we need to convince people that they need boosters.”

The DILG Chief recently met with Concepcion and members of the Advisory Council of Experts (ACE), a group of medical doctors, scientists and academics comprising the country’s foremost authorities on public health, molecular biology, disaster resilience, data insight and analysis, and economics.

The group’s proposal outlined parameters to ease the country into normalcy and encourage economic activity without risking the public’s health. It has been met with approval from the private sector, including several industry groups and businessmen.

Abalos further expressed optimism as the proposal was an initiative of the private sector, and that it puts emphasis on the importance of achieving high booster vaccination rates.

As you can see in the above news excerpt, national government officials, private sector members and other stakeholders have been brainstorming and discussing ways with the exit strategy in mind to truly lift the nation further from the COVID-19 crisis. Former presidential adviser Joey Concepcion is absolutely right when he pointed to complacency which is an enduring problem on the part of the public when it comes to how they perceived COVID-19, vaccination and health. I am certain that a lot of people got fooled by the anti-vaccine fanatics who keep on spreading misinformation and fear.

On the aspect of vaccination, I do agree that a major renewal of COVID-19 vaccination and booster shot rollouts should happen soon. I’m talking about reopening the closed vaccination sites, deploying a lot of health workers with lots of supplies of vaccines prepared, and making sure that each vaccination hub is well organized (note: we don’t want a repeat of the very embarrassing Parañaque Pfizer vaccine launch of May 2021). In addition, the national authorities should come up with ways to make economic recovery more achievable for businesses and employees. On the topic of new infections caused by Omicron and its subvariants, our nation should serious consider acquiring more Sputnik vaccines as those have proven to be very effective against Omicron. Whatever the details they are discussing, the pandemic exit strategy for the Philippines something that everyone should watch out for.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this new development? Do you think that the national authorities and other stakeholders will be able come up with a pandemic exit strategy that will work? Do you think that the anti-vaccine fanatics will ramp up their misinformation campaign and fearmongering now that they know a national pandemic exit strategy is being developed? Do you think President Marcos will spend sufficient time to review the pandemic exit strategy before issuing his response?

NBI agents apprehend investment scam suspect in Parañaque City

Are you a victim of an investment scam? Recently in the City of Parañaque, agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested an investment scam suspect who allegedly deceived someone into investing over one million Pesos into a poultry business that failed to materialize, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

A man who allegedly duped a person to invest P1.5 million in a poultry business that did not materialize has been arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Paranaque City.

In a statement, the NBI identified the suspect as John D. Bombita who was arrested last July 4 by agents of the NBI’s Bulacan District Office (NBI-BULDO) at a coffee shop. Seized from Bombita was the P200,000 entrapment money he received from his victim.

“Subject Bombita was presented for inquest proceedings before the Department of Justice (DOJ) for estafa under the Revised Penal Code,” the NBI said

It said the complainant met Bombita in March 2020 when an offer was made to invest P1.5 million in a poultry farm to be set up in Talugtug, Nueva Ecija. The suspect introduced to the complainant Ramil Bautista, the alleged project manager.

The complainant, the NBI said, was assured that the poultry business would be operational in six months after the payment of P1.5 million to Bombita. The complainant paid the full amount in tranches, it said.

“Seven months later, Subject Bombita called an emergency meeting with the investors and introduced a certain Ulysses F. Barcial as the new person in charge of the project because Ramil Bautista took away the money intended for the Poultry project and assured the investors that the Poultry project will move forward. On May 22, 2021, a ground breaking ceremony was conducted to show that the construction of the poultry will still push through,” the NBI said.

“Sometime in April 2022, Subject Bombita called the complainant and asked for P100,000 for the payment of building permit of the three (3) Poultry Vent Tunnel. The complainant told the subjects that he can only pay P50,000. After a month, the complainant was informed that the payment for the building permit was increased to P200,000. The complainant was threatened that if he failed to pay the said amount his investment of P1.5 million will be forfeited,” it said.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this latest news development? Has anyone out there tried to convince you to pour a lot of their money into a project or venture that lacked credibility?

Maynilad officially launches “New Water” project

Even though a lot of its customers in Bacoor City, Imus City, Cavite City, Las Pinas City, Muntinlupa City, Noveleta, Cavite, Paranaque City, and Rosario, Cavite are suffering from water service disruptions which will keep continuing, water concessionaire Maynilad officially launched their so-called new water project with some guests (note: I published a pre-launch article and you can read about it right here).

The way Maynilad defines it, new water “involves the recycling of used water for potable application.” To see the complete announcement and see who were included in the group photo celebrating the New Water launch, click https://www.mayniladwater.com.ph/maynilad-officially-launches-new-water/

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from Maynilad’s official New Water project launch announcement. Some parts in boldface…

For its pilot implementation of the New Water project, Maynilad built a ₱450-million modular treatment plant that will collect the treated used water discharged by its Paranaque Water Reclamation Facility and convert it to drinkable water. This will yield 10 million liters of New Water per day, which will be fed into the distribution system for blending with the standard drinking water from Maynilad’s La Mesa Treatment Plants before being conveyed to Barangays San Isidro and San Dionisio in Parañaque City. The New Water that Maynilad produces has recently been given a Certificate of Potability by the Parañaque City Heath Office. The New Water project is Maynilad’s initiative to add to its alternative raw water source options so it can better augment supply during times of shortage.

The New Water project is indeed nice and a breakthrough for those who require potable water for consumption and other uses. Still, it can’t be helped that the launch happened at a time when a lot of paying customers of Maynilad went through water-less periods in recent times. Parañaque, the one city that benefits early from the New Water project, had lots of residents in six villages who endured several hours of water service interruption under Maynilad. In the nearby city of Muntinlupa, Maynilad customers there had no access to water for more than 24 hours and the water service problems will continue until the end of the month.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Maynilad customer who recently endured several hours of having no access to water in your local area, how do you rate Maynilad’s quality of service? Do you believe Maynilad’s New Water project will benefit you soon? Do you think the New Water project will somehow solve the water supply problem of Maynilad anytime soon? Do you perceive the New Water project launch to be special or was it badly timed as it happened when so many Maynilad customers are suffering from water supply problems?

Chinese national apprehended by Parañaque cops for kidnapping, robbery and extortion

The wave of crime involving Chinese nationals in Metro Manila just would not ease. Thanks to the efforts of the police force of Parañaque, however, a Chinese national was arrested for acts of kidnapping, robbery and extortion, according the a recent Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

A Chinese national who allegedly kidnapped his fellow citizen and demanded P1,050,000 for the victim’s release was arrested during a follow-up operation conducted by members of the Investigation and Detective and Management Unit (IDMU) of the Parañaque City Police on Friday, July 1.

Col. Maximo Sebastian, city police chief, identified the suspect as Liu Jinkai, 29.

Sebastian said the suspect was nabbed on Macapagal Avenue in Pasay City and is now detained at the Parañaque City Police custodial facility. He was charged with kidnapping and robbery-extortion.

The city police chief said that one Fe Melana, 25, appeared at IDMU and reported that she received a telephone call on Wednesday (June 28) from her live-in partner, victim Ji Ming, asking for her help as he was kidnapped at a casino.

Melena told police that Ji Ming informed her that the suspects were demanding P1,050,000 for his release.

She claimed that the suspects instructed her to meet them at Bonifacio Global City, but later told her to proceed to the casino and bring the ransom money.

The above report ended stating that the place of meeting was changed to a Dampa restaurant along Macapagal Avenue. The arrest eventually happened there.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are living in Parañaque City, what is your reaction to this report? Are you concerned that Chinese nationals spending time in your city could be doing serious criminal acts? Do you believe that something as serious as the incident in Barangay BF Homes could happen soon in your local community?

Drug suspect killed in Parañaque City, the other suspect on the loose

Recently in the City of Parañaque, a male drug suspect got killed during an encounter with law enforcers in Barangay Don Galo where a buy-bust operation was held, according to an article by the Philippine News Agency (PNA). In relation to this, the estimated value of illegal drugs is worth over P60 million.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the PNA article. Some parts in boldface…

An alleged drug dealer was killed in a buy-bust operation that yielded 9 kg. of suspected shabu with an estimated street value of PHP61 million, in Parañaque City on Tuesday night.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Officer in Charge, Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr., said the operation resulted in the death of Joe Marie Ordiales, alias “Roger”, one of the two suspects targeted by the operation that was conducted at about 9:30 p.m. in Barangay (Don Galo).

The other suspect, identified as Arturo Santos Jr., alias “Pugo”, eluded arrest.

“Actually, itong case na ito ay result ng follow-up operation. Kung maalala niyo yung operation doon sa may Mindanao Avenue sa Quezon City last March 2022 wherein in coordination with the QCPD (Quezon City Police District), our PNP Drug Enforcement Group (PDEG) was able to confiscate and apprehend more or less 57 kilos (Actually, this case is the result of a follow-up operation. If you remember the operation along Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City last March 2022 where, in coordination with the QCPD, our PDEG were able to confiscate more or less 57 kg.),” Danao said in an interview with reporters live-streamed on Facebook.

Meanwhile, PDEG Director, Brig. Gen. Randy Peralta, said they carried out the buy-bust operation after one of their men was able to negotiate for the purchase of a large quantity of shabu from the suspects.

“The suspects are well-known distributors of illegal drugs and connected to the MIK siblings and GIB group. Their modus is discreetly concealing illegal drugs on humidifiers, air fryers, and other appliances,” Peralta said.

The suspects traded shots with the PDEG operatives when the buy-bust was announced.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this latest news development? Do you believe Parañaque will remain a hot spot for illegal drugs no matter what the barangay and city government officials declare? Do you believe there is still a lot of work to do before Parañaque could truly become a drug-free city?
