Ma in trouble for taking naked pictures of daughters

KATHY, 22, took a video of her naked children taking a bath upon the prodding of a foreigner she just met online. She saw no harm in that despite earlier being told by the foreigner that he was “horny.”

That is one version of the story Kathy, now in jail, is spinning but the police says otherwise. They accused Kathy of selling pictures of her naked daughters to foreign pedophiles, using a smart phone she bought with money earned from the trade.

This is not the first time she did it. The suspect has been selling online photographs of nude subjects to her clients. In fact, based on documents from money transfer companies, she had numerous transactions with foreigners. Senior Insp. Rose Santolorin of the Women’s and Children Protection Center in the Visayas.

LTO asks clients, don’t use fixers

LTO 7 officer in charge Alita Pulga is urging the clients of her office not to engage the services of fixers, who proliferate outside their offices. Pulga said they have coordinated with the police to arrest fixers in their compound but admitted some of their employees are in cahoots with the fixers for the processing driver’s licenses and vehicle registration.

We received complaints in our office and we already acted on them. LTO 7 officer in charge Alita Pulga.

Pesquera accuses Osmena of lying

Cebu City councilor Joy Pesquera said Mayor Tomas Osmena is lying when he said the city is bankrupt, a justification the new mayor is using to fire hundreds of job-order employees. In 2015, Pesquera said the City’s net income was at P1.5 billion and only at P997 million in 2009, the last year of Tomas’ previous term. Mike Rama took over in 2010 and lost in the 2016 elections.

When he said the City does not have funds or the City is having deficit or the City is bankrupt, that is a blatant lie…As the saying goes, figures do not lie, only liars cannot figure. Cebu City councilor Joy Pesquera.
