MANILA, Philippines – Tatlong foreign national na hinihinalang drug dealer ang hinuli ng National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) dahil sa umano’y pagdadala ng ipinagbabawal na gamot sa Maynila.

Mahigit sa dalawampung pakete ng umano’y shabu ang na-recover ng NBI sa bagahe ng dalawang Indonesian at isang Ghanaian na naka-check-in sa isang hotel sa Mabini St. corner Pedro Gil, Malate, Manila.

Ayon sa empleyado ng naturang hotel, apat na araw nang nakacheck-in ang dalawa sa mga suspek habang kagabi lamang dumating ang Ghanaian na siyang may dala ng na-recover na bagahe.

NBI nabs 5 individuals in investment scam

Aileen Cerrudo   •   July 23, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has arrested five individuals reportedly involved in investment scams.

The five individuals were arrested during an entrapment operation in Quezon City.

Authorities identified them as Bernie Limpiada and Marvin Ojeda, firm manager Rogelio Fambuena Jr., Glory Ann Pillora, and Sison Inocencio who were alleged owners of Agri-Wealth Farm Ventures, Inc. (Agri-Wealth).

NBI Spokesperson Ferdinand Lavin said the investment scam would offer a 160% return of investment within the period of 100 days with a daily profit ranging from 1.6% to 2.5% of the invested amount.

“This is a scam and we are warning the public. Do not engage, (do) not believe in this kind of scam. The name of the corporation is Agri-Wealth Farm Ventures, Inc,” he said.

NBI Anti-fraud Division Chief Palmer Mallari said an informant, the Securities and Exchange Commissions (SEC), and the Anti-Red Tape Authority reported that the Agri-Wealth Farm Ventures, Inc. is not registered.

It also does not have a secondary permit as a lending company, broker or dealer, and securities for taking investment funds from the public.

“When investors are being invited to attend the investors’ conferences, the investors are made to believe that this is a real, legitimate corporation. Why? There are tarpaulins, there are brochures being distributed, there are offices being presented and officers of the corporation,” he said.

Further investigation stated that the company only began its operations last month and that the victims of the investment scam reached around 50 or close to 100 individuals.

The five individuals have been charged with violations of Sections 8 and 26 of Republic Act No. 8799, the Securities Regulation Code. AAC (with reports from Dante Amento)

Mega COVID-19 field hospital sa Maynila, binuksan na

Robie de Guzman   •   June 25, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Handa nang tumanggap ng mga pasyenteng may COVID-19 ang bagong tayong Mega COVID-19 field hospital sa lungsod ng Maynila.

Nagsimula na ang operasyon nito noong Huwebes, Hunyo 24, kaya inaasahang mas luluwag pa ang mga ospital para sa COVID-19 patients na may mild at non-severe symptoms sa Maynila.

Kaya nitong mag-accommodate ng mahigit sa 300 pasyente. Mayroon itong embedded oxygen system, dormitoryo para sa mga health workers, administration at communication office.

Hiwalay ang comfort rooms ng mga pasyente sa healthcare workers, may automatic power system, may sariling generator, maayos ang waste water management at may intercom din para sa bawat pasyente.

Ayon sa lokal na pamahalaan ng Maynila, nasa 200 medical frontliners ang itatalaga sa field hospital.

Bukas ito hindi lamang para sa mga taga-Maynila kundi maging sa mga residente ng ibang lungsod at iba pang probinsya sa Luzon.

Ayon pa kay Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, walang dapat ipag-alala ang mga pasyenteng dadalhin sa naturang COVID-19 field hospital dahil wala silang anumang babayaran sa kanilang pagpapagamot dito.

Ibinalita rin ni Domagoso na bumaba na sa walong porsiyento ang occupancy rate sa mga ospital sa lungsod dahil sa unti-unting pagbaba ng COVID-19 cases sa NCR Plus.

“Ang pangarap natin maging COVID-19-free yung hospital para bumalik na yung tao na magpa-check up kase hindi naman number one sa death toll ang COVID eh, number 4 pa rin siya,” ani Domagoso.

“Paano magpapa-check up yung mga tao may COVID sa ospital eh. So if they will hear na some of our hospitals are covid-free because hinigop namin sila, dito na naka-concentrate na lang ang covid, gagaan ang takbo ng mga ospital,” dagdag pa niya.

Naitayo ang COVID-19 field hospital sa loob lamang ng 52 araw at aabot sa P154 milyon ang pondong inilaan para sa konstruksyon nito. –RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Janice Ingente)

Manila hospital security guard shot dead by patient

Aileen Cerrudo   •   June 24, 2021

MANILA, Philippines—A security guard at Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center in Manila was shot dead by a patient on Monday (June 22).

Santa Cruz Police Station Commander P.Lt.Col. John Guiagui said the incident started when security guard Arturo Budlong Jr. accosted patient Mark Anthony Carlo Galivo for repeatedly attempting to escape from the hospital.

It escalated into an argument during which Galivo snatched Budlong’s gun and fatally shot him in the stomach.  Galivo locked himself inside the hospital’s morgue and engaged in a shootout with police.

“Iyong pasyente na naka-confine doon sa Jose Reyes Hospital at iyon nga, nangyari kasi sinasasaway niya itong huwag palaging lumalabas doon sa confinement niya,” he said.

(The patient was confined at Jose Reyes Hospital. What happened was the security guard was reminding the patient not to leave confinement.)

The patient eventually surrendered to authorities after sustaining gunshot wounds in the leg and stomach.

Barangay 428 chairman Teddy Isla said Galivo, who worked as a kagawad, is a kind man.  However, his co-workers noticed a change in his behavior during the past few days. Galivo was sent to the hospital after attempting to take his own life. AAC (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
