      BP-vest puzzle baffles council    

The case of the missing brand new bullet-proof vests (6-to 10 pieces) worth P300,000 and intended for the use by the city police continues to baffle elements of the city council as they concluded last Wednesday that the case is now a police matter.

After fruitless searches from the mayor’s office, general services office , city police , inventory rooms and barangay affairs offices to no avail, per report of their heads, the blue ribbon committee of the city council headed by Councilor Michael Bandal and his members agreed that it is now the police who should handle the matter after a report is filed in its police blotter, and initiated by the city council as the city policy making body.

The accusations of Matobato against Duterte has went viral like an epidemic in the internet and social media the world over.

That’s right. Nobody would (rather) know.




The case of the lost ten or six brand new bullet proof vests donated by a taxpayer in the United States for the anti-crime use by the Dumaguete police is now in the hands of you guessed it——the police itself.

The city council blue ribbon committee headed by Councilor Michael Bandal is joined by his colleagues in declaring that the days of witch hunting as to where the vests worth P300,000 are, should now be investigated as a police matter. Somebody should now file a report to the police blotter and let the police do its investigation, as the party in interest.
