MANILA, Philippines — Clark International Airport (CRK) will soon inaugurate its new ‘state-of-the-art’ Terminal 2.

The new facility, which is set to open for domestic operations in July this year, is expected to hold up to 12.2 million passengers. This is triple the number of the terminal’s average capacity prior to the pandemic which is only 4.2 million a year.

Following its opening for domestic operations, the terminal will open its international services in September.

On Tuesday (June 8), Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade led the inspection of the new Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) at CRK in Pampanga.

He was joined by DOTr Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John Batan who discussed the terminal’s map route alignment for the North-South Commuter Railway Extension (NSCREx) project that will connect to the CRK underground station.

Tugade believes the terminal will help boost the country’s economy specifically in the tourism sector as it creates more jobs and other opportunities for Filipinos.

Moreover, Tugade said, the construction project itself generated over 1,600 jobs amid the pandemic. Job opportunities are expected to increase once the new terminal goes fully operational.

MANILA, Philippines — San Luis, Pampanga will raffle off cows to encourage more residents to get vaccinated.

San Luis Mayor Jayson Sagum lamented the huge percentage of residents who are hesitant about the COVID-19 vaccine due to reported cases of adverse effects.

This has prompted the local government to launch a raffle draw where only vaccinated residents will be qualified to join. Sagum said they will raffle off live cows for residents who already received the first dose.

The San Luis mayor said they welcome donations of live cows to encourage residents to get vaccinated. He also hopes that the vaccine supply will also increase in the coming months to accommodate more residents. AAC (with reports from Leslie Huidem)

Marje Pelayo   •   January 18, 2021

PAMPANGA, Philippines — A notorious gun-for-hire and his driver were killed in a shootout with authorities early morning Monday (January 18) in Pampanga.

Harry Mandahay, leader of the Mandahay gun-for-hire group, and Jeffrey Langilao, Mandahay’s driver and member of the same criminal group, met their demise in an encounter with members of the Highway Patrol Group and Bacolor Municipal Police Station.

The incident occurred around 2:99 a.m. Monday after the suspects’ car was cornered by mobile crews of the HPG’s Special Operations Division (SOD) and Bacolor Municipal Police Station along River Control Road in Brgy. Cabetican, Bacolor, Pampanga. 

“Refusing to surrender, Mandahay and Diamada got off their vehicle and opened fire at the operatives while attempting to escape, forcing our officers to shoot back and kill both suspects in the process,” explained HPG Director Police Brigadier General Alexander Tagum.

Recovered pieces of evidence from the crime scene include the suspect’s vehicle, a brown Toyota Corolla Altis registered to a different owner and listed as a Hold Order motor vehicle, a .45 caliber pistol, two .38 caliber revolvers, ammunition and spent shells, four plastic sachets containing suspected shabu, several IDs, and some mobile devices.

Tagum commended the efforts of the SOD personnel in coordination with the NCRPO, Bacolor MPS, Pampanga Intelligence Branch, and Pampanga 1st Provincial Mobile Force Company for the success of the operation.
