Davao tops cities with most number of rape cases in Q2

admin   •   August 16, 2018   •   14161

Crime rate in the Philippines may have gone down by 20 percent in two years that President Rodrigo Duterte has been in office, but his hometown Davao City recorded the highest number of rape cases in the second quarter of 2018.

Based on the records of PNP Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM), Davao tops the list with 42 cases.

A close second is Quezon City with 41 cases followed by Manila with 32, Cagayan de Oro, 24 and Zamboanga with 21 cases.

PNP spokesperson PSSupt. Benigno Durana suggested that LGUs should look into possible causes for the high incidence of rape in their respective areas and to note where the crime occurred.

He added that the number of rape cases committed outside the home has actually gone down.

“You cannot police the dwellings… usually, rape cases are being committed by people who are actually known to the victim,” Durana said.

In such cases, police intervention is not the solution. What may help, he said, are gender sensitivity and family values that promote respect for women. —  Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

Pagbabawal sa non-essential face-to-face gathering sa Davao City, pinalawig hanggang Sept. 2022

Robie de Guzman   •   January 6, 2022

Pinalawig pa ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Davao City ang pagbabawal sa non-essential physical gatherings sa mga opisina ng gobyerno sa lungsod.

Sa bisa ng Executive Order No. 69 na nilagdaan ni Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, extended hanggang Setyembre ngayong taon ang pagbabawal sa mga non-essential face-to-face events sa lahat ng opisina ng gobyerno dahil na rin sa banta ng paglitaw ng Omicron at iba pang variant ng COVID-19.

Sakop ng kautusan ang mga barangay, local, national government offices, agencies at instrumentalities, gayundin ang Government-owned and -controlled corporations (GOCC).

Layunin ng kautusan na maiwasan ang hawaan at muling pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa lungsod.

Suspendido rin kahit ang mga maituturing na essential activities gaya ng face-to-face trainings at seminars, kung ito ay hindi naman emergency.

Ang pamamahagi ng food o non-food items na walang kaugnayan sa kalamidad at mga emergency na sitwasyon ay dapat ring ipamahagi via house-to-house sa pamamagitan ng contactless delivery.

Ang tangi lamang pinapayagang pagtitipon sa local government agencies ay ang pagsasagawa online ng mga sumusunod na aktibidad:

  • inauguration
  • anniversary
  • thanksgiving
  • ribbon-cutting
  • blessing
  • turnover
  • groundbreaking activity
  • launching program
  • salo-salo
  • birthday
  • press conferences
  • oath taking program
  • photo opportunity
  • retirement honors
  • welcome honors
  • testimonial programs
  • summer outing
  • team building

Sa kasalukuyan ay nasa 79 ang aktibong kaso ng COVID-19 sa Davao City.

Pero pinaghahandaan na ng lokal na pamahalaan ang posibilidad ng pagdami ng kaso sa susunod na mga linggo dahil sa kakatapos lamang na holiday season at posibleng pagpasok ng Omicron variant sa lungsod. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lucille Lloren)

Robie de Guzman   •   November 9, 2021

Davao City Vice Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte has withdrawn his reelection bid for the 2022 elections.

In a statement posted on Facebook on Tuesday, Duterte confirmed that he has withdrawn his candidacy and nominated Davao City Councilor Melchor Quitain Jr. as his substitute.

“I am deeply grateful to the Dabawenyos for the support they have given me all this time,” he said.

He did not say the reason behind his withdrawal from the vice mayoral race.

“I have no other details to share at the moment. Thank you,” he said.

Early media reports stated that Baste withdrew his candidacy as instructed by his sister, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Baste, one of President Rodrigo Duterte’s sons, filed his certificate of candidacy for reelection on Oct. 3, while Quitain initially declared his bid to run for a third term as city councilor.

Davao City lifts curfew hours, 24-hour liquor ban

Robie de Guzman   •   October 26, 2021

After almost a year, the government of Davao City lifted the curfew in all public places and the 24-hour ban on liquor amid declining cases of COVID-19 in the city.

In an executive order, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said the 24-hour ban on selling of alcoholic beverages has been eased and would take effect from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Duterte-Carpio, however, said that serving of liquor for consumption in bars, restaurants, sari-sari stores, palengke (wet market), videoke, and other business establishments, and drinking liquor in all public places are still prohibited.

The modified liquor ban will be effective from October 26, 2021 to January 1, 2022.

Aside from easing ban on the sale of liquors, the city government also lifted the 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew in public places, also starting on October 26 to allow more mobility for residents and visitors in the city.

Mass gatherings, however, will remain limited. The city government also reminded the public to continue adhering to health protocols and to observe proper ventilation when in a closed space.

Duterte-Carpio said the local government intends to gradually reopen the city amid decreasing infections and increasing vaccination rate.
