Cabaero: Christmas decor

Cebu Headlines - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 22:46

A VISITOR to Cebu asked me last week why she did not see Christmas lights and decorations on the city’s streets.

Breaking News - Sat, 11/22/2014 - 20:55
A lawyers' group has asked the Office of the Ombudsman to suspend a Quezon City assistant prosecutor who recently posted bail in connection with a bribery complaint.   The National Union of Peoples' Lawyers (NUPL) said Raul Desembrana had resumed work after his arrest and brief detention by the National Bureau of Investigation, which caught him taking an P80,000 bribe from an NUPL lawyer in a sting operation on Nov. 14.   In a statement on Saturday, the NUPL noted that Desembrana simply went back to work on Nov. 17, like it was "business as usual."   "It is incongruous and anomalous that a public prosecutor, who wields so much power.... and who is cau...
