    QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Isa pang dating kasambahay na umano’y nakaranas rin ng pangmamaltrato ng pamilya Marzan ang lumutang ngayong araw.

    Ayon kay Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Acosta, isang babae ang itinago nila sa pangalang Evalyn na pinagmalupitan din umano ng mag-asawang Marzan.

    Sinundo pa umano nila si Evalyn sa opisina ng South Luzon Expressway pasado alas-singko ng madaling araw.

    Napaiyak pa umano si Evalyn nang makita nito sina Acosta at Baran dahil naalala niya ang ginawang pagma-maltrato sa kanya ni ginang Marzan.

    “Ikinuwento niya lahat sinasaktan siya di umano, sinasabunutan, tapos kinukurot, sinasampal, may pananakit na ginagawa sa kanya at masakit ang inabot niya,” pahayag ni Acosta.

    Kwento pa ni Atty. Acosta batay sa salaysay sa kaniya ni Evalyn, katorse anyos lamang si Evalyn nang namasukan bilang yaya sa pamilya Marzan noong 1999.

    Sa Murang gulang, nakaranas umano siya ng pananampal at pangungurot mula kay Annaliza Marzan.

    At tuwing magkakamali di umano ay pinapainom siya ng isang galong tubig.

    Dahil dito, limang buwan lamang ang kaniyang inilagi sa pamilya Marzan. Pinayagan lamang umano siyang makaaalis nang magbayad siya kay Annaliza ng isanlibong piso.

    “Di siya nakakalabas, wala siyang off kaya nakiusap siya na paalisin na siya ngunit di siya pinayagan so kinailangang magbayad pa siya ng isang libo para lamang siya paalisin,” pahayag pa ni Acosta.

    Ikinatuwa naman ni Bonita Baran ang paglitaw ni Evalyn na bagama’t hirap mag-salita ay nagpapasalamat ito sa kaniya. (Joshua Antonio/Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

    PAO presents new witness in Carl Arnaiz’s slay case

    MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Justice has started the preliminary investigation on the death of Carl Arnaiz and Reynaldo de Guzman alias Kulot.

    PO1 Jeffrey Perez and PO1 Ricky Arquilita, who allegedly killed Arnaiz attended the hearing as well as taxi driver Tomas Bagcal, whom the teenager has purportedly robbed.

    They are facing complaints for double murder, torture and planting of evidence.

    The Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) presented Joel Cruz as a new witness. He is embalmer who attended to the body of Arnaiz.

    His testimony will support the statement of another witness that the victim was killed at 1:30 in the morning of August 18.

    “His testimony jibes with our forensic analysis on the probable time of death of Carl,” PAO’s Chief Atty. Persida Acosta said.

    Meanwhile, Bagcal’s hope in becoming a witness in the case remains vague.

    Acosta said it is hard to believe Bagcal’s narration that Arnaiz robbed him and was killed after a shootout with the responding policemen.

    “Until he maintains that Carl is a robber we cannot take him as state witness,” Acosta said.

    The preliminary investigation will resume on October 19 and the respondents are expected to submit their counter affidavit.

    The Department of Justice panel warns this is the last chance to the policemen and to Bagcal to answer the allegations. – Roderic Mendoza | UNTV News & Rescue

    Manila, Philippines – The Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) has insisted that there is more than sufficient evidence against four Caloocan policemen who were charged with murder and torture over the death of 17-year old Kian Lloyd delos Santos.

    In their reply to the counter affidavit of the policemen, the PAO said, no less than the PNP-Internal Affairs Service (IAS)found the respondents liable.

    In its pre-charge investigation report, the IAS stated that Kian’s arrest was irregular and its purpose suspicious because he was not brought to the police vehicle but was instead dragged to the opposite direction towards Tullahan River where he was killed.

    It was also clear that the policemen intentionally conspired to kill the victim because their actions were coordinated and the victim was shot in the head.

    The DOJ will continue the preliminary investigation on Tuesday next week. – UNTV News & Rescue

    DPWH names 5 major infra projects seen to solve PHL traffic problems

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, September 18th, 2017


    MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is the second government agency with the highest proposed budget for 2018, which amounts to 643 billion pesos.

    The said budget will cover the implementation of its lined up infrastructure projects.

    Senate Committee on Public Services chairperson Senator Grace Poe asked the DPWH for its recommendation on the projects that should be under the emergency powers bill that is expected to resolve the country’s traffic problems, particularly in Metro Manila.

    DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said the agency sees the five major projects, namely: the Skyway extension, SLEX-NLEX connector road, the 12 bridges along the Pasig River, the Laguna Lake Highway and the Harbor Lake, will be the answer to the long-time traffic problem.

    “The projection is that the combined vehicular traffic that would be absorbed by these two projects is about 100,000 a day. So just on these projects alone there will significant impact on traffic in Metro Manila,” said Villar.

    Senator Poe, on the other hand, said that although the immediate implementation of these projects is imperative, high-quality assurance should be an utmost guarantee.

    “’Yun ang papayagan natin sa alternative sources of bidding na papayagan natin (That is what we will allow in the alternative sources of bidding that we will approve). Not necessarily the lowest bidder but the best,” said Poe.

    The DPWH targets to complete most of these projects by the middle of President Rodrigo Duterte’s term. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
