In 1993, Kit Alqueza, son of a Gen. Alqueza, was initially charged with being the mastermind of the slaying of Allan Gomez. Invited to a one-on-one dialogue with then Vice President and Presidential Anti-Crime Commission (PACC) Chief Joseph Estrada, Alqueza was led to a room full of media personnel and accused before national television of the crime without the benefit of a legal counsel and the chance to defend himself. Even as PACC witnesses stated categorically that their allegations were false, Estrada and CISC's Chief Supt. Angel Quizon held on to their story. Significantly, it was suggested by observers and opinion writers that the contrivance was aimed to divert the focus from Calauan Mayor Antonio Sanchez who had been identified by witnesses as the principal suspect in the UPLB case.
But despite the elimination of PACC's two witnesses Corcolon and Lavadia (who claimed they were tortured to extract false testimony against Alqueza); a vehement denial by a third witness, Rose Molina, of PACC's love triangle theory; and a statement by one Centeno, the driver of Sanchez, who pointed at Sanchez as the first to rape Sarmenta, Estrada and Lacson insisted that 19-year-old Alqueza masterminded the murder by paying Lavadia the puny sum of ₱21,000 to carry out the murder.
Antique and Bohol share the same clean rivers: Bugang River and Loboc River, respectively. They are home to many endemic species and source of clean water. At a larger scale, the Amazon River— the longest in the world plays the same role. As I write this, forest fires ravage the Amazon rainforest and the costs seem insurmountable. The river and the rainforest are partners for life. There are many NGOs where you can make a donation in order to support their activites. Our help no matter how small can go a long way. x

The Ruins by @stephengreenprice - I'm approaching my sixth month in the city of Bacolod but haven't yet featured it on my page. So here we are, I present to you The Ruins, which is a ruined mansion built in 1911 and burned down during WWII. I haven't actually seen an aerial view of this building before, which makes sense as drones are banned at this spot. It definitely wasn't easy getting permission to fly here but huge thanks to the management at The Ruins for allowing me to share such a beautiful structure with the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
