SSS officials violated Anti-Red Tape Act

On June 30, 2009, the Court of Appeals decided in CA-GR No. 104470 that SSS member Rodolfo M. Cunanan is entitled to the EC Permanent Total Disability benefit under Presidential Decree No. 626, as amended. Article 173 of PD 626 provides: “xxx The payment of compensation under this title shall not bar the recovery of benefits as provided for in Republic Act No. Eleven Hundred Sixty-One (RA 1161 as amended), SS law, RA 8282… and other laws whose benefits are administered by the System (SSS) or by other agencies of the government (as amended by PD 1921).”

Court ruling nothing to crow about

Very much in the news nowadays is the poor and pathetic state of our country’s judicial system. Inquirer’s editorial “Justice as tragedy” (Opinion, 11/24/14) merely highlighted once again what has been decried for a very long time now: “Justice delayed is justice denied.” The Ozone inferno case which resulted in the conviction of most of the accused is nothing for the judiciary (particularly, the Sandiganbayan) to crow about.

Supreme Court did not stop construction of coal plant

This refers to the editorial “Risky powers” (9/23/14), specifically the first paragraph that reads: “Since 2012, the government had been warned that a shortage of electricity was very likely by 2015. That was after the Supreme Court stopped private investors from putting up a 600-megawatt coal-fired power plant inside the Subic free port. President Aquino ignored the warning, but now he wants emergency powers to tackle a power crisis predicted inevitable in the summer of next year.”

It is supposed to help prevent Vitamin A deficiency, a leading cause of blindness. Experiments have been ongoing, with the aim of introducing GM rice to the public in a couple of years.
