By InterAksyon.com & PNA
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - A leader of an investment firm allegedly involved in the pyramiding scam in Mindanao and Visayas who was arrested in Marawi City, Lanao Del Sur on Tuesday, is now detained at the NBI-10 office here.
Yesterday, NBI spokesmen said the suspect, Jachob “Coco” Rasuman, son of former Department of Public Works and Highways undersecretary Bashir D. Rasuman, will be brought to Manila immediately today for security reasons. It was feared that violence may erupt since several victims of the recent pyramiding scam have been trooping to the NBI premises yesterday. Rashuman who was accused of masterminding an alleged multimillion-peso pyramiding scam was arrested around 2:15 p.m. at his residence in Barangay Panggao Saduc, Marawi City by joint elements of the National Bureau of Investigation-Region 10, the Philippine National Police, and the Philippine Army’s 103rd Brigade. Prior to his arrest, Rasuman was under the cus-
tody of the Provincial Crisis Technical Working Committee at his residence for about three months. The warrant of arrest against Rasuman was issued by the Regional Trial Court of Cagayan de Oro City after he was charged with syndicated estafa by a certain Abu-Amar Sambitory and 24 other complainants. The accused allegedly promised but failed to pay the complainants a total of P274 million in interest for their two-month investment in Rasuman’s business. The complainants also charged Jachob’s father Bashir, as well as her mother, brothers, sisters, and wife. The respondents are the alleged officers of Nad Auto Option, Jachob is said to be the company’s president and chief executive officer. They are: Jeremiah Amer Rasuman - executive officer; SCAM | page 10

Coordinator, MAKABAYAN Coalition. MAKABAYAN announced that the convention will kickoff with a Motorcade from 9 am to 11 am. Choke points have been set up in three points namely; Tibungco, Ulas and Buhangin. After the motorcade, the convention proper will proceed to the Gym of the University of the South Eastern Philippines (USEPObrero Campus). Challenging mainstream politics with its mantra, “Pagbabago para sa Pilipino. Pilipino para sa Pagbabago,” the Makabayan Coalition has now expanded to nine party list groups namely; Bayan Muna, Anakpawis, Gabriela Women’s Party, Kabataan, Katribu (for indigenous people’s rights), Act Teachers, Migrante, and PISTON which represents the PUJ drivers and operators. Still pending in the Supreme Court for approval are the application of COURAGE, representing government employees and KALIKASAN Partylist which aims to represent the poorest sectors as predominantly victimized by environmental deterioration and tragedies. Bayan Muna representative Teddy Casino, who is himself a Davaoeno, and has earlier announced his senatorial bid along with other national party list representatives will attend the convention. Locally, Atty. Leah Librado who is also a member of the HUGPONG coalition will run for her second term as city councilor. Davaoeno Atty. Carlos Isagani Zarate will be BAYAN MUNA’s second nominee while Edil Gonzaga is PISTON’s second nominee. During the media briefing, MAKABAYAN announced its platforms as the criteria for their basis of endorsing local and national politicians. During the MAKABAYAN national convention in Manila earlier this quarter, MAKABAYAN endorsed Senators Chiz Escudero, Loren Legarda, Cynthia Villar, Coco Pimentel, Grace Poe-Llamanzares.

FINANCIAL regulators wereurged to fully ascertain the possible impact of the P12-billion Aman Futures Group pyramiding scam in Mindanao on small financial institutions in that part of the country.
“We are not overly concerned about any potential effects the scam might have on formal financial institutions. Just the same, we are counting on regulators to be extra watchful,” said Rep.
Arnel Ty, a member of the House committee on banks and financial intermediaries. The National Bureau of Investigation’s Anti-Fraud Division has yet to establish whether those who pulled off the scam that blew up
earlier this month channeled some of the funds to formal financial institutions. However, based on initial evidence, investors drawn to the rip-off were issued post-dated bank checks to cover their supposed lucrative interest earnings and returns of principal. However, the checks started bouncing when the scam collapsed. “We sympathize with the victims of the scam. No effort should be spared in bringing to justice those responsible for defrauding and destroying the lives of thousands of small investors,” said Ty, congressional representative of sales professionals grouped under the LPG Marketers’ Association (LPG-MA). Ty also supported Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas’s investigation of allegations that a number of local governments may have irregularly invested
Dennis Uy products and lubricants, operation of oil depots and storage facilities, shipping/ logistics and allied services.
Regulators urged to check impact of scam on small financial institutions some public funds in Aman Futures. This developed as the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) shuttered a five-unit rural bank in Mindanao, adding to the woes of small savers there. Northern Mindanao’s Siam Bank (A Rural Bank) Inc., which last reported having 5,376 savers with P140.48 million in total deposits, was closed down by the BSP on Nov. 22. Siam maintained a head office in Cagayan de Oro City and four branches -- one each in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte; Valencia City, Bukidnon; and in the municipalities of Lugait and Villanueva, both in Misamis Oriental. The BSP also padlocked the Pasuquin, Ilocos Nortebased Ilocandia Community Bank Inc. the same day. The three-unit lender last reported having 1,533 savers
with an aggregate of P39.44million in deposits. The two lenders brought to 19 the number of banks put under receivership this year due to severe liquidity issues and their inability to service withdrawals. Congress was challenged to create a new financial consumer watchdog to help safeguard the public against future investment scams. “We may have to put in place an entity patterned after the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which the US established in 2010, in the aftermath of the US financial crisis, which also saw some of America’s biggest investment scams blowing up,” Ty said. The US Congress established the bureau not only to fight home mortgage-related abuses that brought down the US housing market, but also to discourage scams.

Stem cell treatment at Villa Medica A special report-day 2
DAY TWO, FRESH CELL INJECTIONS -- We woke up early, as breakfast was ready by 7 a.m., although it was still dark outside. A lady nurse came in and took Beth’s temperature. The previous night, before sleeping, Beth was given by the lady nurse an anti-histamine anti-allergy pill, which was to forestall any allergy reaction to the fresh cell injections, scheduled about 11 a.m. Friday, on Day 2. When she woke up, Beth was complaining of her usual neck pains and upper shoulder spasms that had been normal occurrences over some time. This daily pain she would merely nurse by hot compress and avoiding analgesics and concerned that painkillers would worsen her kidney conditions. This was almost a daily recurrence back home in Davao for some time now. Adjusting to a 7-hour time difference was still problematic. It meant going to bed here at Edenkoben at 8 pm when our body clock told us it’s 3 a.m. in the morning back home. So when we woke up at 7 a.m., in Edenkoben, it was already 2 pm in the afternoon Philippine time. We had breakfast at the dining hall at the ground floor. Beth was clearly anxious and a bit nervous I could tell. The German couple was still seated at the next table to ours. Then we returned to our rooms to prepare for the stem cell injections. At that same moment, I was estimating that the 18- week pregnant “ Black Mountain” sheep must be undergoing the procedures too somewhere downstairs. As earlier told by Sammy, the VM rep who met us at the Frankfurt airport, the specially chosen pregnant sheep would be slaughtered about that time. I was informed that the German government monitored and closely supervised the procedures according to standards that the German government strictly required on stem cell treatment (something our Philippine government
Doing the Damage THINK a Minute… This is a true story about a young Jewish boy named Karl who grew up in Germany. Karl’s father was very religious and made sure his family went to the Jewish synagogue and studied the Torah or Jewish bible every day. When Karl was a teenager his family moved to another German town where all the important people were Christians not Jews. Suddenly, Karl’s father changed religions—not because he learned the truth that Jesus Christ is the only true God, but because he wanted to be popular and liked by the important people in the community. Karl’s family was so surprised and confused. Young Karl especially became deeply disappointed and angry at his father for being such a

You see, that young teenage boy who was deeply disappointed and embittered by his hypocrite father was Karl Marx—the father of atheistic socialism. It was Karl Marx who wrote the Communist Manifesto. So now for almost a hundred years, over a billion people have suffered under the hopeless rule of atheistic

Section 6 of the Philippine Constitution declares that the ‘separation of Church and State shall be inviolable. ‘Inviolable means ‘unbreakable’ or ‘sacred’ and that this constitutional provision should at all times be observed. When we talk of separation of the church and state, it brings to our minds that the church and the state have their own separate and indepen- Cris Diaz dent spheres. In addition, the church as well as the state moved within the limit of their spheres without encroaching into the other. However, are the church and state observing this constitutional provision? There are ‘gray areas’ so to speak stem | page 10 since the constitutional provision of the separation of church and state is general in context. These gray areas are ‘critical principles’ where both the state and the church (although separate and moved within their spheres) still share the same vision and www.mindanaodailybalita.com understanding of the value of life and dignity of a person.

socialism which was started by that hurt and bitter young man, Karl Marx. That’s the terrible damage and influence which resulted from Karl’s hypocrite father. Our children are watching the way you and I live every day! Our character and attitudes speak much louder than our words. Our kids aren’t stupid. They see the act we put on to look religious and good in front of other people. Then they see how we really are at home. They see when
we’re not honest. They see when we’re two-faced and gossip about others. They see us when we lose our temper and self-control. They see when we won’t forgive someone who hurt and wronged us. Our kids know whether or not we’re real Christians who live Jesus’ way every day. But if we are hypocrites, it not only means we ourselves are in danger, it also does great damage to our children’s relationship with God and the kind of people they become as adults. So won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you? Then ask Him to take charge of your heart so He can start helping you change. That’s the only way your kids can learn from you how to follow and become like Christ in their character and lifestyle. Just think a minute…
this constitutional provision. Generally, the Philippine Constitution was tailored in the context of religious influence and perception. It is clearly manifested in the Declaration of State Principles and Policies, Section 12, which partly says ‘The state recognizes the sanctity of family life and shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social institution. It shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception.’ Thus, the passage of the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill should not threaten the Church. After all, the spirit of the bill is not to snap the life of an unborn child. The bill was legislated as a method of counseling a family in rearing children and family. In other words RH Bill provides an appropriate ‘knowledge tools’ for parents to discern on the propriety of having children. While we are talking about the bill to address the continued growth of the existing 98 million people in the country, the bill does not teach couples to abort an unborn child otherwise; it would run contrary to the state’s constitutional provisions. The Church should not tag the RH Bill as a ‘state sponsored abortion’ because doing so would confuse the issue. Instead of positively reflecting on the issue, the Church mixes it up by directly interfering in the affairs of the state. React: email@example.com

Butuan police bracing for ‘ber’ months By Arjay S. Felicilda of the Mindanao Star Balita
Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar S. Moreno (2nd from right) led the unveiling of the Fifth State of the Philippine Population Report 5 (SPPR) on Thursday. The ceremonial launching was witnessed by (L-R) Rosalinda D. Marcelino (Popcom Deputy Executive Director), Tomas M. Osias (Popcom Executive Director) and Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma of Cagayan de Oro. The new SPPR series explores topics on population, health and environment interrelationships and the experience of the country in integrating the three variables in policies, programs and projects.

CAGAYAN de Oro City – “As we enter the months of September to December, we are wary of the crime wave that goes along with it,” said Police Sr. Supt. Nerio T. Bermudo, director of the Butuan City Police Office (BCPO). “Our experience would remind us that crimes against properties, such as theft and robbery, are more likely to happen during this season,” he related, adding that “it is during this time of the year that the demands for police services and public expectations is equally high.” The BCPO has successfully secured the city during the All Souls Day and All Saints Day celebrations, but just a day after, the city was
shaken by the robbery-holdup incident at Lucibenino Jewelry and Pawnshop, Inc. where armed men carted away some P3.5 million worth of jewelry. “Luckily, due to the vigilance and active participation of our force multipliers, coupled with the swift response of our police personnel, one of the four suspects was immediately arrested and another was apprehended few days later,” PSSupt. Bermudo recounted. With the Christmas season fast approaching, he expects more crimes to happen in Butuan City. He then enjoined every member of the BCPO to help deny the underworld
people every opportunity to carry out their criminal acts to the four corners of the city. “I know that a crime-free city does not exist, but unifying our efforts and working together to minimize, if not to eliminate the occurrence of crime, will make us move closer to that goal,” he further said. Leading the law enforcement sector in a city, like Butuan, is not an easy task, he admitted, “but with the troop augmentation from the Police Regional Office (PRO-13), headed by Police Chief Supt. Carmelo Valmoria, and the popular support from the force multipliers, I know we can make Butuan a safe and peaceful city to live in.”
Knights of Rizal honors Dr. IKeda
The Order of the Knights of Rizal recently conferred the “Golden Heart Award” to Dr Daisaku Ikeda, founding President of Soka Gakkai International, a non-profit organization globally working for the promotion of peace and human values. Dr. Ikeda is also founder of several Soka schools in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia and universities in Japan and America, as well as the Toda Institute for Global Peace and Policy Research and the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century among others. A prolific writer, Ikeda has published over a hundred works, including philosophical treatises, poetry, children’s stories and photographic collections. Central to his thinking is the idea that a self-directed transformation within the life of each individual, rather than societal or structural reforms alone, holds the key to lasting peace and human happiness. Dr. Ikeda’s endeavors to promote peace, cultural understanding, and humanistic education also earned him the UN Peace Award among many other peace awards all over the world.
In the Philippines, Dr. Ikeda has also been conferred the Juan Luna Award, the Rizal International Peace Award, the Anak TV Broadcasters’ Award, and over a dozen honorary doctorates and professorships from various universities. Dr. Ikeda’s children’s stories will air in December in animation form over ABSCBN under the series title Animazing Tales. The same series now enjoy three runs daily on the Hero Cable Channel. The Order of the Knights of Rizal, a civic, patriotic, non-sectarian, nonpartisan and non-racial organization founded to venerate the memory of Dr. Jose Rizal, created the Golden Heart Award to recognize individuals, regardless of nationality, whose advocacies touch the lives of millions of people parallel to the moral foundation that the organization upholds. The award was presented by KGCR Sir Rogelio Quiambao, Chairman of the Council of Elders, and KGCR Sir Reghis Romero, Knights of Rizal Supreme Commander at a conferral ceremony attended by SGI vice president Masatoshi Konno who received the honor in behalf of Dr. Ikeda.

of the overall operation of the River Center and the operation and maintenance of monitoring facilities, including the yearly calibration of the installed equipment. Rece ntly, scientists and advisors from 20 specialized United Nations bodies also met to decide how a people-centred early-warning system can be implemented worldwide. The UN-led initiative was aimed to help reduce the impact of natural disasters through effective early warning systems. The first Advisory Group Meeting of the International Early Warning Programme (IEWP) will provide the international community with an opportunity to start shaping how the IEWP should operate in the coming years. The advice provided will determine IEWP’s longterm character. In particular, the participants assessed the recommendations of the Global Survey of Early Warning Systems to build a more comprehensive alert platform that includes all types of natural hazards. Over the past two years alone more than 1,000 disasters events have occurred around the planet on every continent. This represents more than one major disaster incident per day. These extreme loss events have affected the livelihoods and wealth of some 200 million citizens. Insurance companies indicate that an estimated damage of approximately USD 300 billion had thus to be accounted for across the global economy during this same period. “Disasters triggered by natural hazards will happen again, often unpredictably, always erratically,” said Salvano Briceño, the top UN-official on Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR). “While the hazards cannot be prevented, their impact can be decreased if vulnerable communities have been enabled to develop sufficient resilience to cope with them. The International Early Warning Programme is a critical instrument in establishing a strong framework for such global early warning systems,” he explained. To facilitate implementation of the proposed programme and to strengthen cross-sector partnerships, the Bonn-based UN/ISDR Platform for the Promotion of Early Warning is assisting actors in both the public and private sectors to sustain a dialogue on early warning.

Jachob’s mother is Ema, and his siblings are Jeremiah, who is Tamparan, Lanao del Sur vice mayor, Jamerie, Jerome, Jamila, Jalaima, and Bashir Jr. Jachob’s wife is Princess Tomawi, who is the sister of Amer Tomawis. Princess and Amer are the children of Sultan Yahya “Jerry” Tomawis, administrator of the Southern Philippine Development Authority. Incidents of kidnapping are reportedly on the rise in Lanao del Sur after the Rasumans’ alleged pyramiding opertions folded up last July and failed to pay their investors. Earlier, NBI Iligan District Office chief Alex Carbonay said that there were “already some reports na mayroon nang na-abduct [that there already those who were abducted].” “One of the targets there is the family of Rasuman,” said Carbonay. On August 13, Ouzhar “Paw” Rasuman, Jachob’s nephew, was kidnapped by unidentified men in Divisoria, Cagayan de Oro City. The abductors’ motive was to pressure Jachob to return the money that the former had invested in the get-rich-quick operations, according to Police Supt. Danildo Tumanda, the station commander of Police Station 1 in Divisoria. The 24-year-old Ouzhar was released by his abductors on August 24. Authorities said the kidnappers were also the relatives of the Rasumans. Also, one of Jachob’s subagents, who hides under the name “Abdul,” fears that investors would take revenge against him and his loved ones. “Sinasabi nila sa akin ng ganitong buwan ikaw na lang ang kukunin namin, kumbaga mawawala na ‘yong buhay natin, papatayin din kami [They tell me that by this month they will take me, they will kill us.],” Abdul earlier told Interaksyon 5. Abdul, who is now deep in debt, claimed that he, too, was defrauded by the Rasumans. Earlier, Sr. Supt. Romel Magsalos, Lanao Del Sur police commander, said Jachob “Coco” Rasuman of Rasuman group, an investment firm in Lanao del Sur, was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents and aided by his men. The suspect was taken into NBI custody. Magsalos did not elaborate on the details about the arrest except that Rasuman was arrested at his residence in Marawi City. Rasuman was among the personalities with arrest warrants for syndicated

It took only about 2 minutes and it was over. Then the injected area was covered with a big plaster. A nurse assistant kept asking: “ How do you feel? “ I would hear Beth say, “okay” every time it was no big deal. It was over before we realized it. She was allowed to turn around and lie on her back and told to stay in bed and not to get up. For the next 30 hours or so, she was supposed to stay in bed. She would be allowed to get up with the minimum movements only when taking her dinner which was served in the room and when going to the bathroom. The close observations followed. From time to time, the nurse would look at the injected area for telltale signs of allergy reactions or unusual appearances or body reactions. There were none. Then after a while Dr.Morato came back to inject, with one syringe, fresh stem cells at Beth’s neck portion due to her persistent complaint about neck and shoulder pains. “That would take care of those pains, hopefully,” Dr. Morato re- assuringly told Beth. The stem cells that were injected in the neck area, I gathered were taken from the neck cartilage of the unborn sheep fetus. That neck injection was a special treatment that was not included in the original package. Then the extended rest period begun. She would not be allowed to leave the room. Beth stayed in bed the rest of the day, allowed to get up only to go to the bathroom or take the meal that was delivered inside the room. Due to the Valium pill she took before the injections, she was resting well by the sound of her snore and breathing. This went on for the rest of the day until evening. She woke up middle of the night, asked what time it was and then slipped back to sleep. The temperature outside was chilly. At one time, she rose and sat on a lounging chair and read a few pages from the book of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile’ s MEMOIRS that she bought for me while still in Manila. Then she would fall asleep again. The waiting for the results of the treatment thus begun.

Arts in 1935. Edades patterned the Fine Arts curriculum after American courses and included Western and Oriental art history, foreign languages, and optional science subjects such as zoology and botany (aside from the standard subjects such as drawing, painting and composition).
“It was under the stewardship of Edades that UST became foremost in modern art, while the University of the Philippines remained the bastion of conservative art under Fernando Amorsolo,” the CBAP said. Artists from the “Thirteen Moderns” whose works are represented in the collection include Edades, Demetrio Diego, Carlos Francisco, Cesar Legaspi, Diosdado Lorenzo, Anita MagsaysayHo, Vicente Manansala, Galo B. Ocampo, Hernando R. Ocampo, and Ricarte Purugganan. The Cultural Center of the Philippines has honored this pioneering group by naming its art awards the “Thirteen Artists Award” — originally conceived to support experimental art in the Philippines. At present, the CBAP explained that it has become a triennial program that nurtures and promotes artistic excellence by recognizing progressive and innovative art.
