Malacañang: Boracay closure won’t be this summer

by UNTV   |   Posted on Friday, March 23rd, 2018


BORACAY ISLAND, one of the most visited destinations in the Philippines.

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has not issued his official decision on the recommendations of government agencies to temporary close Boracay Island.

Consequently, Malacañang ensured that this summer break, tourists can still visit the island beach resort.

“I don’t think any closure will happen during the peak season of Boracay. We’re looking at — possibly if the president finally accepts the recommendation — lean season,” said Presidential Spokesperson Roque.

The president said he is willing to support whatever the decision of Interior Secretary Eduardo Año will be on the issue.

Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Department of Tourism (DOT) have been recommending a maximum of one year closure of Boracay Island to rehabilitate it.

“Boracay, he thinks will take a little bit longer. And I answered him,  I said, ‘General, I placed you there. Whatever is your decision, I will support you. It’s up to you. You just make the recommendation. And if I find everything that is alright and in consonance, go ahead.’ He said, ‘It will take about something like six months.’ So do it, it’s their actions which destroy Boracay, not us,” said Duterte.

Malacañang is not sure if the Boracay closure will affect the recently approved contract to build new casino resorts on the island.

But according to Roque, the developers must follow the government’s requirements in the construction of the infrastructures such as adequate water and sewer system.

“Warning to the developer, they should know that all their development plans hinges on what the president will decide upon on the issue of Boracay. But right now there is a moratorium on new improvements, so they can’t build even if they want to today because of the moratorium,” said Roque.— Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

PH to withdraw participation in all US-led expeditions

by UNTV   |   Posted on Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

In his remark during the 39th commencement exercises for Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA), President Rodrigo Duterte said that the country will no longer participate in all US-led wars.

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered a halt on the country’s participation in all expeditions led by the United States (US).

According to the President, the country has nothing to benefit from those missions.

The Chief Executive cited as an example the Philippines’ participation in the United States’ efforts to free Kuwait from the control of Iraq during the Gulf war in 1991.

The Philippines sent Filipino troops to help in the war that freed Kuwait, but the President lamented, the now independent Arab nation allows the abuse of Filipino workers there.

“I am addressing America right now, whatever expeditions that you will conduct, any wars that you will fight in any countries, count us out. We benefit nothing all these years of sacrifice except brutality,” said Duterte.

The President also noted that the Philippines can stand on its own; further arguing that what is important is for the country to maintain its dignity.

He added that invasions such as during the Spanish and American colonial era should not happen again.

“Tama na po yun (That’s enough). You have had your fill. Do not ask for more,” said the President.

At the end of his speech during the 39th commencement exercises for Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA), the President said the Philippines will no longer participate in any war by the US under his term.

“Unless we are threatened directly, there will be no more joint expeditions at least sa panahon ko (during my term),” he said.  — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — A total of 106 cadets graduated from the Philippine National Police (PNP) Academy on Wednesday with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Public Safety.

Seventy-six of them prefer to join the Philippine National Police; 13 are joining the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) while 17 are joining the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP).

Twenty-four-year-old cadet Fritz John Napalinga Vallador from Negros Occidental was hailed as class valedictorian.

“We shall not only be indebted forever to the Filipino people but we will always be committed to serve the people at all times,” said Vallador.

Aside from the Presidential Kampilan Award and other awards, he received a house and lot located in Bacolod.

The PNP also assigned service pistols to the top 10 graduates of the PNPA.

For Fritz’ guardian, Nelia Deocares, no words can describe how thankful she is to see him accomplish his plebehood in the academy.

Nelia raised Fritz and treated him as her own in support of Fritz’s mother who works as an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Spain.

“Salamat. You make us proud of you at nandiyan ka na,” said Deocares.

(Thank you. You make us proud that you have finally made it.)

Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte gave his advice to the newly added batch of uniformed personnel to the government’s police force.

“Just perform your duty. For as long as you are in the performance of duty, do not be afraid. Just do it. If you have to kill, I will take care of you,” said the president.

The chief executive also expressed his wish to see cadets coming from the Moros and other indigenous groups in the country to join the PNPA and the Philippine Military Academy (PMA). — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
