French church attacker tests positive for Covid-19

The Tunisian assailant who killed three people at a church in France has tested positive for Covid-19, which could further delay his questioning, a source close to the inquiry said Tuesday. A woman lights a candle outside Notre-Dame de l’Assomption Basilica in Nice on October 31, 2020, to pay tribute to the victims two days after a knife attacker killed three people, cutting the throat of two, inside the church of the French Riviera city, and police arrest a young Tunisian migrant from Sfax who arrived in Europe only last month, according to French prosecutors. (Photo by Valery HACHE / AFP) Brahim Issaoui, 21, remains hospitalized after being shot several times by police after the knife rampage at Nice’s  Notre-Dame basilica on Thursday. “He hasn’t yet been questioned, his prognosis remains uncertain,” another inquiry source told AFP late Monday. Issaoui, who was known to Tunisian police for violence and drug offences, arrived in France only last month, having first crossed the Mediterranean to the Italian island of Lampedusa. Italian media reports say he was initially placed in quarantine with nearly 400 other migrants aboard a ferry boat, before being allowed to disembark  at Bari on October 9. Investigators have since determined he arrived in Nice on October 27, just two days before the church attack. One woman had her throat cut and a church employee was also fatally stabbed inside the church, while another woman managed to flee but later died of her wounds. Police say Issaoui yelled “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) as they apprehended him, leading officials to say it was the latest in a string of jihadist attacks on French soil in recent years. Six people have been detained for questioning over suspected links with Issaoui, but only one remained in custody Tuesday, a 29-year-old Tunisian who was aboard the boat that brought Issaoui to Lampedusa, sources said......»»

DILG lauds Pangasinan prov’l govt for its efforts in slowing down COVID-19 spread

PANGASINAN — The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has commended the provincial government headed by Gov. Amado Espino III and the people of Pangasinan for their collective effort in slowing down the spread of COVID-19. Governor Amado I. Espino III (Photo from the official website of the Province of Pangasinan/ MANILA BULLETIN/ FILE) “Binabati natin si Governor dahil maganda ang pagha-handle nila sa COVID situation. In fact, bumaba na yung kanilang active cases. Magandang development na ito sa pangunguna ng ating Governor at sa pagtutulungan ng ating mga kababayan sa Pangasinan,” (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año said. The DILG Secretary, together with Gov. Espino and Board Member Jerome Vic Espino were guests at the October 27 episode of Laging Handa Network Briefing hosted by Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar. Año said that despite being a huge province and the gateway to Northern Luzon, Pangasinan is faring well in slowing down the spread of COVID-19. “Sana ay tuluyan na ring mawala ang COVID dyan,” the DILG Secretary said. Espino thanked his constituents for cooperating with the provincial government in the enforcement of strict health protocols. “Nagpapasalamat tayo sa ating mga kababayan na nakikinig at sumusunod sa alituntunin at sa mga LGUs na nakikiisa sa mga programa. Sa guidance po ng national Inter-Agency Task Force, maganda ang pagkakaisa at komunikasyon po namin dito kaya patuloy na bumababa ang mga kaso ng COVID-19,” he said. The province has a total of 1,611 COVID-19 cases, 351 of which are active, 60 deaths, and 1,200 recoveries.  Espino thanked national government agencies and President Duterte for their support to the Province of Pangasinan in curbing the spread of COVID-19. .....»»

DFP employees turn the table, file graft raps vs Belgica

Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica has been slapped with a complaint for graft and several administrative charges before the Office of the Ombudsman by nine employees of Duty Free Philippines (DFP). Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica Alexander Sablan, Ernesto Mangalindan, Romeo Silva Jr., Eric Oracion, Rizalino Santos, Nilo Duarte, Joaquin Vibal, Francis Daco, and Carlito Ardales want Belgica to be held liable for violations of  Section 3(b), (e), (f), and (k) of R.A. 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, Grave Misconduct, Conduct Prejudicial to the Service, and Gross Inexcusable Negligence. The DFP employees said they were “very frustrated and disappointed” in Belgica for taking on their case of “smuggling” against DFPC Chief Operating Officer (COO) Vicente Pelagio Angala. They said in the complaint that they sought Belgica’s help after listening to his program with DZRH called “Ireklamo Mo Kay Greco.” They then went to his house in San Miguel Avenue near Malacañang and sought help regarding allegations of anomalies and corruption within DFP. He listened to their concerns and introduced his father, Gregor Belgica, and his lawyer sibling, Atty. Jeremia Belgica. The Belgica clan assured the DFP employees that they have their support, and they said they were lucky because they do not have to pay for any legal fees. However, when they filed the plunder complaint before the Ombudsman on March 16, 2017, with the help of the firm of Belgica’s brother – Belgica Aranas ALim Dela Cruz and Association – they had to pay P1,000 per page or a total of P130,000. Things went downhill when Belgica contacted Angala and set up a meeting with them. During the meeting, they were made to sign a “waiver” which they did not get to read and they were also kept in the dark. In the end, Belgica made recommendations to President Duterte against officials of DFP. However, they said the recommendations did not really include the names of those involved, but just mentioned that charges be filed against “public officials.” The money which they used to pay the Ombudsman was also returned. “Ginamit niya ang aming kaso para magkaroon ng koneksyon sa mga malalaking negosyante sa Duty Free upang gamitin niya sa kanyang pansariling interest. (He used our case to connect with big business owners in Duty Free so that he could use it for his own personal gain),” the complaint read. Contacted by the Manila Bulletin for his side, Belgica said he is ready to defend himself and provide answers “anywhere and anytime.” He added that the complaint that he asked for money is a “fabricated story,” and he said that he had been very generous to the DFP employees. The fact that the group has besmirched his reputation, Belgica said he is going to file counter-charges and “pray hard that they all go to jail.” Belgica likewise made some accusations of his own: “This group is being sponsored by the same people who also filed a case against me on the entrapment operations and anti-corruption initiatives that we have been doing. This group has been trying to rally more people to fabricate cases and allegations in order to undermine the anti-corruption initiatives of the administration.”.....»»
