NegOr crafts anti-terror
threat contingency plan
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Joint Task Group Maritime Safety and Security of Negros Oriental has finalized its “Oplan Kontra-Dukot” anti-terror threat contingency plan, following reported potential terrorist and kidnap-for-ransom activities in the Visayas.

Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo sits as chairman of the task group while Lt. Junior Grade Donna Liza Ramacho, Coast Guard Dumaguete Station commander, was named the task group commander.

Ramacho said yesterday that “Oplan Kontra-Dukot” (or Oplan Anti-Kidnapping) defines the concepts and operational procedures for the Task Group to ensure maritime safety and security of seafarers, particularly foreign and local tourists, in view of potential terror threat posed by extremist groups such as kidnap-for-ransom and bombings.
