BACOLOD City – One of the four officials of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) arrested in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental recently has a pending arrest warrant for murder. “The warrant has yet to be served because her current arrest was due to different circumstances. This disproves the NPA’s claim that she is not an insurgent,” he added. The 38-year-old Cañesares, who was identified by the Philippine Army’s (PA) 15th Infantry Battalion as “Emmylo Cañares,” was arrested with three other suspected rebels in Barangay Magballo on July 10. The four suspects, who are detained at the Kabankalan City Police Station, have been tagged by the police as CPP-NPA terrorist (CNT) high-value individuals.Both Cañares and Morino have been charged for violation of Republic Act 10591, or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act and RA 9516, or the Illegal Possession of Explosives while Buga-ay for RA 10591 and Patajo for RA 9516. (With a report from PNA/PN) Major Cenon Pancito III, chief of the PA’s 3rd Infantry Division’s Public Affairs Office, said on Wednesday the CPP-NPA should get a good lawyer to represent the four considering that one of them is facing a murder case.last_img read more

Bale ‘risks offending team-mates’

first_imgIreland assistant manager Marco Tardelli believes Gareth Bale risks losing the respect of his team-mates if he does not play for Wales in Wednesday’s friendly. It is understood Bale is concerned about the prospect of risking an injury against Ireland, which could potentially scupper any impending deal. But Tardelli believes Bale needs to pull on a red shirt on Wednesday, or risk upsetting his Wales colleagues. When asked if he expected to be facing the winger, Tardelli replied: “I think he will play, he is a Welsh player and he is the best player in the team. “If he wants the respect of the other players he must play. He is a very good player, at the moment he is up there with Cristiano Ronaldo and players of that calibre, and we saw this with what he did for Tottenham last season.” Of the reported £105million fee Real are ready to splash out on Bale, Tardelli added: “Times change but maybe in my time Diego Maradona may have been (worth that much). “I don’t know if Bale is worth that much but if someone pays it that is his value.” But Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan is not so convinced that Coleman will be able to field his main attacking catalyst, and expects Bale to avoid any risks. He said: “I am not too sure he will play. He has got a big-money move lined up. No one knows if it is on or off but if I was Gareth I would maybe be a little wary of playing before any deal is made. “But it’s up to himself and his manager. I dare say he would like to get a deal done and then play for his country, but if it isn’t done, I don’t think we’ll see him.” The 24-year-old Tottenham winger’s future is firmly in the spotlight with Real Madrid keen to attempt a world record deal to take him to the Bernabeu. Despite not having played for Spurs in almost a month, and while he continues to nurse a foot injury, Bale has reported for duty with Chris Coleman’s side ahead of the Cardiff City Stadium clash. While nearly all of the pre-match focus has been on Bale, Ireland have important goals of their own to focus on. They are firmly in the hunt for World Cup qualification from Group C, and are part of a three-strong group, along with Sweden and Austria, level on points behind leaders Germany. Next month sees Giovanni Trapattoni’s team face the Swedes and Austrians in two games which could define their campaign. And Whelan knows it is vital to continue a good run of form which has seen them lose just once in 2013, to World and European champions Spain. He said: “It is massive for us, we have gone on a good run and we need to keep that confidence going as we have got two big games next month. “We put in a good performance against Spain, even though we lost, and everyone knows how friendlies can help build confidence, so we want a good result on Wednesday. “We have a few new players around the squad but they want to prove they can do a job on the big stage and we want to go into those games next month on a good performance and with the right result. “This is a derby game and we know it will be tough.” Press Associationlast_img read more
