Bangued, Abra — Provincial Election Supervisor Marychelle Belmes is walking on deadly ground.

That is according to Senior Superintendent Albertlito Garcia, officer-in-charge of Abra Police Provincial Office (PPO), who has assigned a police officer to serve as her bodyguard after she received threats to her life.

Belmes personally went to Bangued Municipal Police Station on October 13 to blotter a call she received from a concerned citizen saying that she is in the list of those in the province who will be killed next.

She also said that her mother told her that unidentified persons riding a motorcycle had been circling their house.

She told police that she does not have any grudge with anybody and does not have an idea who may want to harm her, except if it has something to do with an on-going investigation related to the May, 2013 election involving an incident that happened in Barangay Caganayan, Tineg town where it was found that a certain Fatima Yawayaw was able to register twice and voted twice.

  2. The honorable legacy of Gabriela Silang is gone. Cowards are killing good people by order of bloodthirsty
    leaders who don’t deserved to be there. We seem to allow these things to happen because some good leaders n laymen alike don’t have the will to fight. Church leaders also failed because they could not effluence their followers to the right path. We claim to be christian but Abreans who are mostly not yet Christians during Gabriela time were better because they were willing to kill and to die to safeguard only their rights. Now evil minded leaders are killing because of money and power. Our only hope for change is to know the Word, learn His loving message, follow His commandments and implore His guidance.
    Many things is impossible to man but with God, nothing is impossible in this world.

  3. I thought this type of intimidation is the thing of the past. I was wrong. Abra is moving backward instead of forward because of these power hungry politicians who live by their own rules.

    We are half way through to the next elections in 2016. History has told us that at this time, political forces begins to move and start positioning themselves for the next election. thus all these political killings and intimidations are starting to come up.

  4. In the history of man, blood were shed in the fights to evil governance. The Blood of the martyrs allows Christianity and evangelism to spread in all corners of the world. Hence the light of truth shines through the dark ages. We are now savoring a partial peaceful world as exemplified by the cooperation of nations against aggressive intruders. The Social media marks as a threshold of global brotherhood as well. All of these are results of those blood offerings of numerous good individuals. Locally, if you are in the position to change the situation of Abra, bloods might be a requirement as well. But see to it that, you are in the fight for a better Abra or other wise your are just a mere casualty. To our public servants, let God be your Shepperd by living and practicing His word, and God will always be there to protect you. The scripture however said; Be meek as a lamb, but be wise as a serpent (Mathew 10:16).

  5. Pagayam Eric Shawn, you are barking at a wrong tree. While you used to feed words into one’s mouth, you don’t exactly knew my personal relationship to God, my experiences with the God I have known and served for more than half of my life (Not the “god” that you are mentioning often times). However, I won’t dignify your rants but would rather share my piece on the early electioneering not only in Abra but in the national government seat as well. Religious sectors should have a hand in the approval of candidates who would be running for a position. Sir Pedro Abrenio would agree with me if I say that our present election system is a sham. Conscientious people are in the churches. It would be of great help in the solutions of all these problems if this sector will be empowered, at least in screening of candidates.

  6. That is your opinion and would always be your way of thinking. Separation of Church and the state would be in the context of responsibility. These two entities never been separated in the truest sense, but have acted as the mind/conscience and the body respectively. The church dictates the moral laws, while the Government like a body that often times wonders in wrong direction needs to be guided. The Churches would speak up when the Government decides on matters that are immoral. And there are numerous laws that our present government wanted to pass that would eventually lead to people increasing secularization. The churches would not just take these things sitting down.

    • Sus u guide first alk your priest before guiding the government. As i daid u r intervening n influencing our political lraders not to pass law that is detrimental to ur church whete i belong but u had never prrsented a solution wherein the proposed law will tend to adress. Look u the priest while officiating mass cnt even made sermon about killings if there are politicians present worst they accept donation frm them.

      • The Separation Of Religion From Politics, resulting in the notion of “private religion”, is the outcome of the secularism associated with the 18th century European Enlightenment.Before that time, religion was always a matter for the whole community, and never just for the individual. In addition, religion and culture were always inextricably intertwined with each other in such a way that their separation was inconceivable. If politics is broadly defined as the principles or policies by which a community orders its life, then religion obviously cannot be artificially excised from politics. This is true especially for multi-religious societies like our country THE PHILLIPPINES….Christians generally maintain that religion and politics cannot be separated. This is because, according to the Christian faith, there can be no place for any distinction between secular and sacred. The God who created the world must surely be Lord even of the political realm.To maintain that there can be no separation between religion and politics is not to reject the concept of the secular state or to insist that the Church should not be separated from the state. The two issues are quite different and must not be confused with one another.Although the concept of the secular state is in itself in many ways problematic, it is nonetheless useful in identifying the duties of the state. The secular state is one in which the government is limited to the seculum or temporal realm. It is a state that is free from the control of any institutional religion and therefore independent of the latter. The idea of the secular state therefore denies the government the right to use religion for the accomplishment of political ends, and it denies religion the right to use the government for religious ends. In this way, the secular state is arguably better able to ensure what some scholars have called “benevolent neutrality”, where the interests of the members of all the different communities represented in society are taken seriously.As mentioned earlier, although this model raises a number of difficult and important issues and is far from perfect, for reasons I cannot discuss in this short article, Christians can broadly endorse it without fear of too much compromise. A paradox immediately presents itself: How are we to understand the relationship between the secular state and a religious society? Are the two concepts not contradictory? Here we must further sharpen our understanding of the secular state. A secular state is one that is concerned with the seculum or temporal affairs. However, a secular state is not a state that is committed to secularism. That is to say, the secular state does not deny the reality of the non-physical world and it is not hostile to religious belief and practice. The secular state therefore will not attempt to expunge religious discourse from the public square. It recognises the importance of religion in public life, even as it prohibits religion from using the government for religious ends.This is clearly evident in the fact that the latter has openly invited different faith communities to participate in debates on important societal issues.Christians believe that they can make significant contributions to public life, not least by participating in debates on social and political issues. As I have argued elsewhere, this is an aspect of the Christian’s responsibility in society. Christians and the Church, therefore, may serve a political purpose by playing a prophetic role in public life.Although some Christians have argued that the separation of Church and state and the acceptance of the concept of the secular state require the privatisation of religion, I maintain that this is not the case at all. In fact, the contrary is true: the separation of Church and state has made possible the genuinely prophetic role of religion because the Church, freed from institutional dependence, is no longer subservient to the state in a way that would mute its prophetic voice. The Church is therefore able to be itself – a free and authentic witness for God in society. The separation of Church and state and the concept of the secular state therefore make possible an authentic public religion. They make genuine interaction between Christians and political society a living reality.Christians contribute to the political life of society by advancing justice and promoting the common good. But in order to do so, Christians (and the Church) must sometimes question the established order and refuse to endorse or “sanctify” policies and traditions that are not in harmony with God’s will. These are all aspects of the prophetic role of Christians in society. Furthermore, prophetic religion must also reach out to the oppressed, the dispossessed, the disinherited and the discriminated. It must reject the temptation to show favour to any particular socio-economic class. It must be free from the fetters of any given culture and the prevailing norms and conventions of society.By speaking rationally, truthfully and compassionately to many shared concerns and issues, and by participating respectfully, calmly and patiently in public discourse, Christians can contribute – in small but sometimes surprisingly significant ways – to society. In this way, the Christian community can fulfil its public vocation in the world on behalf of freedom, peace, and justice for all.

      • The active participation of the churches in these seemingly hopeless situation of Abra is of paramount importance. Evil leaders dominates the entirety of Abra culture. They disregard God and human values. Some calls for a Gabriela revolution, others asked for a Duterte form of discipline. How about a Joan of Arc to lead men in our spiritual battle? Churches should be in unison to call for a “Prayer for Abra”. In this kind of crisis, we can only ask God for intervention. If Christians unites, the walls of darkness will fall at once.

    The constitution clearly tells the separation of state and religion. Churches may suggest but never have the right to dictate what the government should do.

  11. The House committee on Public Works and Highways will pursue its scrutiny on the 200-million Abra Provincial Hospital, one among the government infrastructures built by controversial Hilmarc’s Construction Corporation (HCC) being investigated for alleged overpricing and possible corruption.

    Supposedly completed in 2010, the 170-bed capacity hospital building which stands on a 5,498 square meter land in Calaba, Bangued, went only in operation three years after when the crib wall of the stonemasonry collapsed and structural defects reportedly became evident after a storm hit Abra in 2011.

    The Department of Health through it’s universial health insurance system implementing agency PhilHealth, has also ordered the downgrade of APH status earlier this year from Level 2 to Level 1.
