New security measures for Ayala Alabang Village proposed in relation to recent drug raids

The recent drug raids and apprehension of suspects inside Ayala Alabang is now a hot topic of discussion with regards to local community security and the war against illegal substances. In relation to this, new security measures have been proposed for Ayala Alabang Village and the issue has caught the attention of Muntinlupa City Mayor Ruffy Biazon, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.  

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

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon said new security measures were proposed for the exclusive Ayala Alabang Village after the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) seized 20 kilos of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) worth P136 million during a raid on a house used as a drug laboratory.

The PDEA-led raid on Nov. 18 targeted a house on Mabolo Street in Ayala Alabang Village, home to the rich and famous.

PDEA identified the suspects as Aurelien Cythere, 41, a resident at the target address, and Mark Anthony Sarayot, 42, businessman, a resident of Barangay Ugong, Pasig.

Biazon said he convened a dialogue with officials of Barangay Ayala Alabang and Ayala Alabang Village Association (AAVA) to discuss what measures to take to prevent any house in the posh village from being used for illegal drugs and other crimes.

In 2018, the PDEA and other government agencies declared Barangay Ayala Alabang, which covers the Ayala Alabang Village, as a drug-cleared, the first barangay in Muntinlupa to receive the declaration.

However, subsequent police operations in recent years yielded illegal drugs in the village.

Biazon said security is tight in Ayala Alabang Village and its residents value privacy. However, he said, the privacy aspect is being used by people to commit illegal acts and hide from authorities.

He said the barangay, village association and himself proposed several measures to prevent illegal drugs in the village.

One of these is requiring tenants, who rent houses in Ayala Alabang, to register so they can be identified.

Another is to have an agreement between Barangay Ayala Alabang, AAVA and law enforcement agencies to exchange intelligence information, which is the key to catching the culprits, said Biazon.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Do you suspect that a household within your local community has been secretly turned into a laboratory for illegal drugs? What kind of new security measures do you think the authorities will come up with?

Muntinlupa Mayor Biazon calls for end to violence against women and children

In the progressive City of Muntinlupa, Mayor Ruffy Biazon recently emphasized the end to violence against women and children which was part of a new campaign related to the subject matter, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. The said campaign is ongoing and will last until December 12, 2022.

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

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon called for a concerted effort to end violence against women and children (VAWC).

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) have issued guidelines in observance of the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women slated from Nov. 25 to Dec. 12.

Citing 2017 data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Biazon said one in four women aged 15 to 49 suffered physical, emotional, or sexual violence from their husbands or partners.

“Kaisa ang Pamahalaang Lungsod sa kampanya para wakasan ang karahasan sa mga kababaihan at kabataan (Violence Against Women and Children o VAWC) (The city government is one in the campaign to end violence against women and children),” he said.

In Muntinlupa, he said, there is the SAGIP ng Muntinlupa center that helps women and children who have experienced abuse.

There are also VAWC help desks in barangays to assist victims in the community. The city government has the Muntinlupa Gender And Development Office which implements programs to stop VAWC, said Biazon.

Data from SAGIP ng Muntinlupa showed that from January to October this year, it assisted 440 women and children who became victims of violence in Muntinlupa.

Of the 440 VAWC cases in the city, 314 or 71.4 percent were children while 126 or 28.6 percent were women.

Out of the 314 cases of violence against children, 71 were sexual abuse, including rape and incest. Among the 126 cases of violence against women, 38 or 30 percent were battery.

In 2021, SAGIP ng Muntinlupa recorded 416 cases of violence against women and children.

Biazon said the city government established the Local Committee on Anti-Trafficking and VAWC (LCAT-VAWC) to coordinate and implement Republic Act 9208 (Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003) and Republic Act 9262 (Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act of 2004).

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Do you consider violence towards women and children a serious problem in the city?

Muntinlupa City declared the Most Resilient Highly Urbanized City of the Nation (2022 CMCI)

The City of Muntinlupa achieved another tremendous honor that local residents can be delighted with as it was declared Number One among all Highly Urbanized Cities of the Nation on the category of Resiliency as based on the results of the 2022 Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI), according to a Manila Bulletin news report. Muntinlupa also made it in other categories among highly urbanized cities.

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

Muntinlupa was recognized as No. 1 in resiliency and No. 5 overall most competitive among all highly urbanized cities in the country under the 2022 Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI).

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) awarded outstanding local government units (LGUs) during the 10th Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Summit held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on Oct. 20.

According to the CMCI website, “local competitiveness is how a city or municipality knows its resources and how it uses these to improve its standard of living.”

LGUs are ranked based on CMCI’s five pillars: economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure, resilience and innovation.

This is the third straight year that Muntinlupa topped the resiliency pillar among highly urbanized cities in the country.

Resiliency is the capacity of a locality to facilitate businesses and industries to create jobs, raise productivity, and increase the incomes of citizens over time despite of the shocks and stresses it encounters,” according to the CMCI.

It added, “This implies that the role of local governments is critical in ensuring a competitive environment to make businesses sustain their profits, create jobs, and increase the productivity of its people. In order for localities to be able to do this, it must be resilient in its infrastructure, governance, social and environmental systems.”

The resiliency pillar is based on annual disaster drill, budget for disaster risk reduction and management plan, disaster risk reduction plan, emergency infrastructure, employed population, early warning system, local risk assessments, land use plan, sanitary system and utilities.

In addition, Muntinlupa is No. 4 in infrastructure and 10 in innovation among highly urbanized cities in the country.

The above report ended stating that City Administrator Allan Cachuela and Local Economic and Investment Promotion Office head Gary Llama represented Mayor Ruffy Biazon at the ceremony.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this development? Are you happy with what the city achieved in terms of being competitive with the many other highly urbanized cities?

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon reported what his administration has accomplished in the first 100 days in office.

“It’s hard to believe that it has been 100 days since I took my oath of office and talked about my vision and aspirations for Muntinlupa,” he said in a speech on Oct. 14.

Since assuming office on July 1, Biazon said he has signed 37 executive orders.

Biazon came up with 7K Agenda (Kabuhayan, Kalusugan, Karunungan, Kapayapaan at Kaayusan, Kaunlaran, Kalikasan at Katarungan), the priority areas of his administration.

“Among the seven K, our priorities are Kabuhayan [Livelihood], Kalusugan [Health], and Karunungan [Education] that are important parts in bouncing back from the crisis brought about by the pandemic. Those three agendas are what we call the Pandemic Recovery Program,” he said.

Health

Biazon said under his administration, he stepped up the Covid-19 vaccination campaign in Muntinlupa.

As of Oct. 5, Muntinlupa 125.2 percent of the target population have been fully vaccinated and 49.35 percent of them have received at least one booster shot. In total, 1.24 million vaccines have been administered in the city, he said.

Under the PinasLakas vaccination campaign, the Muntinlupa City government has reached out to 20 private companies, eight private schools and 21 homeowners associations.

Biazon also focused on improving services and facilities at the city-run Ospital ng Muntinlupa. A waiting area was built for the companions of patients, who are currently not allowed to stay in rooms due to Covid-19 protocols. An urban garden was also built at the hospital for frontline healthcare workers. He said the new building at the hospital, constructed through the cooperation between him and Rep. Jaime Fresnedi, will soon be opened.

A “Super Health Center” will be established at the Barangay Putatan Main Health Center that will offer more services and longer operating hours.

Livelihood

Under Biazon’s administration, 172 micro-entrepreneurs have availed of P3.89 million zero percent interest loans through the Tulong Negosyo-Dagdag Puhunan Program.

Through online and Mega Job Fairs, the city government has offered 9,373 job vacancies and given referrals to 3,317 applicants.

A total of 1,468 disadvantaged workers were given temporary employment under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program.

In addition, the SMILE Munti or Support Muntinlupa Industries and Local Entrepreneurs was launched to help promote small and new businesses in the city.

Education

The national government ordered the return of face-to-face classes. Biazon said in Muntinlupa, the “Ready & Safe” face-to-face classes in public and private schools were implemented ensuring that schools were ready to accept students.

The city government currently has 82,442 scholars and educational assistance beneficiaries.

Recently, the College of Medicine of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa and Ospital ng Muntinlupa was opened to become the first medical school in the city. The mayor said a scholarship grant of P100,000 per year will be given to each qualified beneficiary of the College of Medicine.

As of Sept. 27, the security outposts have been put up at the City Alternate Route Entry and Exit (C.A.R.E.S.) guard house in Pleasant Village in Barangay Bayanan, and Soldier’s Hills and Caltex gas station along National Road in Barangay Putatan. Additional outposts will be installed in the coming days.

The decision to place security outposts was made after messages spread in August on social media about the alleged kidnapping incidents in Muntinlupa.

On Messenger, people forwarded the message, “Attention Everyone!!! Mag ingat po ang lahat sa pag uwi, maging aware sa paligid as much as possible mag pasundo sa kanino pag uuwe may mga cases na sa Muntinlupa Area. Soldiers: 3 cases of kidnapping, Katarungan: 2 cases of kidnapping, Bayanan Area : 2 cases of kidnapping.” (Attention Everyone!!! Please be aware when you go home, be aware of your surroundings as much as possible ask someone to fetch you, there are already cases in the Muntinlupa Area. Soldiers: 3 cases of kidnapping, Katarungan: 2 cases of kidnapping, Bayanan Area : 2 cases of kidnapping).”

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon immediately asked the Muntinlupa police to investigate the alleged kidnapping incidents, which turned out to be false.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this development? Do you think the installation of new security outposts was necessary? Were there any cases of kidnapping that took place in your local community?
