Carnapping in Bohol Philippines

A suspected bigtime carnapper entrapped by the city police inside the house of a city official is now facing charges at the City Prosecutor's Office.

Charges of carnapping and estafa were filed against suspect John Glen Cadampog, 32, a resident of J.A. Clarin Street , this city, by victims that included City Kag. Edgar Bompat.

Cadampog took at least eight vehicles from four victims. The suspect hired the vehicles for a fee but was actually hunting for unsuspecting buyers.

A total of P700,000 was owed by Cadampog to the vehicle owners including a Kia Rio and a multicab that were already sold to different buyers, police said.

The suspected carnapper was caught in an entrapment operation at the residence of Kag. Bompat along J.A. Clarin St. last Wednesday.

After he was brought to the City Police Station, several victims surfaced including Paterna Taray, Rodrigo Balaba and Nilo Palwa of Balilihan town.

According to Bompat, who owns a fleet of vans and cars for rent, the suspect rented his Mazda and Besta vans for 12 days with an unpaid bill of P39,000.

Taray's multicab was discovered sold in Cebu by the suspect who still owes her P70,000 while Palwa rented out to the suspect his Kia Rio at P1,800 per day since October last year.

It was later known that Palwa's car was sold to Bernardo Alcala, brother of Panglao Mayor Benedicto Alcala, and then afterward sold to Panglao Kag. Benjie Arcamo.

Cadampog also rented three vehicles of Balaba – a Toyota Altis, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Vios. Balaba filed a separate complaint for carnapping at the City Prosecutor's Office.

The suspect is presently detained at the City lock-up jail. - source: Bohol Chronicle

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.

Bohol Tourist Spots - Bohol Attractions

Heading east from Tagbilaran along the south coast takes you first to the coastal fishing town of BOOL , 5km away. Said to be the oldest settlement on the island, it's also the site of the  Blood Compact Site, marked by an attractive bronze sculpture on the seafront. This is the spot where local chieftain Rajah Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi concluded an early round of Philippine–Spanish hostili-ties in 1565 by signing a compact in blood. Every year for one week in July, Boholanos gather in Bool for the  Sandugo  (One Blood)  festival  which, apart from the usual beauty pageants and roast pigs, includes a passionate re-enactment of the blood ceremony.
About 2km east of Bool, BACLAYON  is the site of  Baclayon Church, the oldest stone church in the Philippines. Much of the existing facade was added by the Augustinian Recollects in the nineteenth century, but the rest dates back to 1595 and was declared a national historical landmark in 1995. The church's convent has been t…

It is called Sala'am Center.It was an opportune time for the Post to get the reaction of the Muslim leaders given the combustible issue of a peace agreement between the government and the Moro Islam Liberation Front (MILF) now catching fire from all segments of Philippine society.The government and the MILF on Tuesday were set to sign a memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain following 10 years of off-and-on negotiations. But the Supreme Court stopped the ceremony after local Mindanao officials protested the inclusion of their areas in an expanded Moro homeland without consultations.Critics said the broad economic and po…
