    Congress tries ‘reality TV’
    By Romie A. Evangelista

    The House of Representatives has embarked on a new reality show, dubbed Congress TV or “Bahay ni Nogie” that will broadcast live on cable television and on the Internet all the committee and plenary sessions.

    “It will have no scripts. No makeups. No special effects. Just raw and live broadcast of what is going on in the House of Representatives,” Speaker Prospero Nograles said.

    This is part of Nograles’ commitment to turn the Chamber into a true “House of the People” by being more transparent in conducting its affairs. It is also meant to encourage members to actively participate in committee and plenary deliberations.

    “Apart from keeping the public abreast of what is going on in the Chamber, this would also dissuade lawmakers from malingering,” Nograles said.

    “This has been one of my priority projects and I’m glad that it’s now online. We are now steadily putting together the transparency reforms that we have been yearning for in the House of Representatives,” he said.

    What’s even better, Nograles said, is that not a single government fund was spent for the live television and Webcast project as it was made in partnership with Destiny Cable Inc., one of the country’s cable television networks, through its Global News Network.

    The House sessions will be aired live on Destiny’s GNN Channel 3l.

    Simultaneous with the television broadcast is a Webcast that can be accessed through mms://202.128.41.99/gnn so that even non-Destiny cable subscribers can still access the House proceedings via Internet.

    The ABS-CBN’s News Channel (ANC) is featuring a similar reality show called “Bahay ni Kuya” wherein select men and women were housed together and filmed 24 hours a day. The show’s personalities are booted out if they receive the lowest number of votes generated from text messages sent in by viewers.

    “In the event that you are not connected to destiny or you are outside its coverage or even outside the Philippines, you can still access it through the Internet. Once connected, just open you media player and access it through its webcast address,” Nograles said. “It’s way slower than tv but with a good internet connection, the public can still see the House in action.”

    The Speaker said that since there will be no scripts and all footages are practically raw and unedited, the public should not expect well-rehearsed debates and well-made up congressmen and congresswomen.

    “Tempers may go up during debates just like in any debate and oily skins might show up. But that’s reality television,” Nograles said.

    House observers said the live TV and webcast telecast is expected to encourage full attendance in the House session hall; encourage debates from among publicity-hungry lawmakers. Lawmakers who belong to the “silent committee” so-called because they are silent most of the time, will be exposed to the public.

    Nograles said also nearing its completion is the House’s “pork barrel” website which would detail how each member of the House of Representatives allocates his/her Countrywide Development Fund entitlement.

    “This is our commitment to our people. We are steadily putting these transparency reforms in place,” he said.


    Remarks:

    » Special Report re - Rape with Homicide in Cabucgayan
    Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

    BiliranIsland.com
    On or about 2:30 A. M. of May 9, 2008 an incident of rape with homicide transpired at Brgy. Balaquid, Cabucgayan, Biliran wherein the victim was one Mrs. Ruth Lanante Y. Legaspino, 30 years old, a native of Cebu and maried to Mr. Arturo Lanante of Brgy. Balaquid, Cabucgayan, Biliran. Victim and her two minor children were only the occupants of their house when the incident happened because the husband is presently working abroad for more than three months before he left his family.
    Initial investigation conducted disclosed that there were two (2) suspects responsible of the said incident. One was immediately identified by Mr. Emillo Lenante a close neighbor of the victim who responded when he (Emilio) heard the loud voice of the victim shouting for help as Roberto Illar alias “Berto” a native of Brgy. Pinamopoan, Capoocan, Leyte, single who temporarily stayed at his step-father’s house at Brgy. Balaquid, Cabucgayan, Biliran.
    According to the witness, Mr. Emilio Lenante, he was only five meters away more or less when he saw the suspect Roberto hurriedly jumped outside from the house of the victim passing the window. Infact, he even chased the suspect but the suspect run too fast.
    Victim sustained stabbed wounds on the different parts of her body and she was rushed to Naval Procincial Hospital for treatment but expired few minutes later.
    Responding Policeman, PO3 Noel D. Mesa, PO2 Sebastian S. Dagalca Jr. and PO2 Darwin A. Villena Recovered one (1) knife about seven (7) inches long with blood stained believed to be the weapon used by the suspects.
    Suspect, Roberto who evade arrest was kept on hiding in the mountainous area of area Brgy. Balaquid while series of manhunt operations were also initiated by the Biliran Police Provincial Office against the suspect with the active support of the Brgy. Tanods of Balaquid. However, on the evening of May 15, 2008, at about 9:30 o’clock more or less suspect Roberto Illar was found dead by Brgy. Tanods hanging using an electric wire tied on his neck inside the unoccupied house of the suspect’s step-father which is quite distance away from the Brgy. proper of Brgy. Balaquidm Cabucgayan, Biliran.
    Other suspect was identified later as Roger De La Cruz, married also of Brgy. Balaquid, Cabucgayan, Biliran who is now under arrest after the suspect’s father Mr. Constantino De La Cruz revealed to the Police that his son Reger confessed to him (Constantino) that he was the companion of Roberto Illar who raped and stabbed Ruth Lenante on the early morning of May 9, 2008. Because they (Suspects) were drunk on that time.
    This instant case is considered solved with corresponding formal charge against the suspect (s) now being filed before the Prosecutor’s Office of Naval, Biliran, Under I.S. Nr. 2008-97.
