Bad news, bad news, bad news...

The following are excerpts of the news I gathered up for a couple of days. All of which are bad news. Is it just me or is the media always reporting bad news? They just love death, murder, scandals, and everything to make your day go bad..It is very hard to find good news today here in the Philippines. The media is making money out of some other people's dilemma.

DOJ  MAY APPEAL  MAKATI  COURT  RULING  ON  HONASAN  BAIL

MANILA, APRIL 24, 2007 (STAR) The Department of Justice (DOJ) may
appeal the ruling of the Makati Regional Trial Court to allow senatorial
candidate Gregorio Honasan to post bail.

"We’re studying that … we might be accused by some people of
harassing him again," Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez said yesterday.

Gonzalez, however, expressed doubts that such an appeal would prosper.

"I would think that a motion for reconsideration (of the bail grant)
will not be successful," he said.

Gonzalez said the ruling of the Supreme Court to free Bayan Muna
party-list Rep. Satur Ocampo has sent the wrong signal to the lower
courts.

"The SC decision to release him (Ocampo) set the trend. That is a bad
trend. We cannot place in jail people who challenge the authority of
the state," Gonzalez said.

"That is what I am afraid of. That Trillanes and Beltran will be
allowed bail and all the efforts that we have done to safeguard the government
against destabilizers will have gone for naught," Gonzalez said,
referring to former Navy Lt. Senior Grade Antonio Trillanes IV and Anakpawis Rep.
Crispin Beltran, who were both accused of conspiring to overthrow the
government.

"Maybe they’ll order bail for everybody. I don’t care if the
Supreme Court listens to this," he lamented.

In fact, some quarters are already seeking the temporary release of
both Trillanes and Beltran.

AFP TO CONSIDER MNLF'S MALIK A TERRORIST

MANILA, APRIL 24, 2007 (STAR) By Jaime Laude - Moro National Liberation
Front
(MNLF) commander Habier Malik and his men, who have been fighting
government troops in Sulu, would be treated as terrorists if they are
captured in the company of Abu Sayyaf members, an anti-terrorism
official said yesterday.

The official, who asked not to be named, said the military is still
validating reports that Malik and his men have joined the Abu Sayyaf.

"Once we establish that Malik has joined forces with the group of
Albader Parad and Dr. Abu, they would become MNLF renegades and they would be
classified as terrorists," the official said.

The official said the military has "remained soft" on Malik and his
band in deference to the peace treaty with the MNLF.

"If they (Malik and his band) are with the Abu Sayyaf, then they have
forfeited their membership in the MNLF, and this would allow us to go
all out and deal with these terrorists harshly," the official said.

Quoting intelligence reports, Armed Forces chief Gen. Hermogenes
Esperon Jr. said Malik has been giving sanctuary to foreign Jemaah Islamiyah
terrorists Dulmatin —who goes by one name —and Umar Patek, who are
wanted for the 2002 bombings in Bali, Indonesia.

Will the AFP just destroy these guys?? This guy's are terrorist, they don't have a heart anymore. The MNLF should have disbanded along time ago. They have been given many chances to change, to accept peace..but what did they do? They just re-armed themselves and started making trouble again. Jeez..
