PAO holds jail visitation and decongestion program

KAHANGA-HANGA ang kasipagan at tunay na public servant  si Atty. PERSIDA V. RUEDA-ACOSTA, Chief Public Attorney dahil lagi siyang handang tumulong sa kapwa-Pilipino at ipaglaban ang hustiya para sa kanila. Noong June 21 ay muling pinangunahan na butihing PAO chief ang ika-apat na anibersaryo ng paglubog ng M/V Princess of the Stars, isang pampasaherong barko na pag-aari ng Sulpicio Lines, na lumubog sa Sibuyan island sa Romblon noong kasagsagan ng bagyong Frank. Muling nagsama-sama ang mga kamag-anak ng mga biktima ng paglubog ng naturang barko at nanalangin sa misang pinangunahan ni Fr. Robert Reyes. Nanawagan ang running priest na patuloy na suportahan ang kaso laban sa Sulpicio Lines upang panagutin ito sa pagkamatay ng may 850 pasahero.

Umabot na sa halos 200 civil cases ang isinampa ng PAO laban sa Sulpicio Lines at patuloy ang suporta nito sa mga kamag-anak ng mga

PMPC’s grand vacation at Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte Hannah’s Beach Resort & Convention Center is definitely one of the most exciting vacation destinations in Northern Luzon and in the Philippines . Kaya naman well-visited at fully booked ito last summer at patuloy na dinarayo ng ating mga kababayan kahit tapos na ang bakasyon. Hindi nagpahuli ang Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) na maranasan ang luxury vacation sa paradise beach resort na ito para sa taunang outing at team-building. Situated right in front of the famous Blue Lagoon ( Maira-ira Beach ) at Brgy. Balaoi, Malingay, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte , Philippines , Hannah’s offers both exclusivity and luxury in an overwhelming friendly environment. The Blue Lagoon, with its captivating crystal clear waters and white sand beach, is comparable to Boracay which it was once – pristine and untouched.

Traveling in style… for free!

I have always been a travel bug – traveling for every opportunity that I can for three decades now. Good thing I have a supportive husband and four kids who understand my job – and who are happy with the fulfillment that I get from my travels. One moment, I was up north in Quezon province enjoying the sights and sounds of rural life and the festivities of Pahiyas, Agawan, and Arana’t Baluarte – all in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers as thanksgiving ceremonies for the good harvest.
