Sugar industry leaders yesterday said they are happy with the results of the Senate hearing Tuesday on the call to curb the importation of High Fructose Corn Syrup, but have not called off the boycott on Coca-Cola products yet.
Sugar Alliance of the Philippines spokesman Emilio Yulo III yesterday said they are thankful for the efforts of Senators Cynthia Villar and Juan Miguel Zubiri to help the sugar industry.
“But in the absence of any clear and definite agreement on the proposal to purchase locally grown GMO-free sugar, the boycott on Coke continues and we expect more LGUs, business establishments and NGOs to join the call,” Yulo said.

The Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental yesterday debunked reports that members of the terror group, Abu Sayyaf, have reached the shores of Dauin, a town located south of Dumaguete City, that is brimming with tourists.
This developed as the 79th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army based in the province has released the names and description of Abu Sayyaf members in Inabanga, Bohol, who are still “on the run” so that the public will be alerted.
