The Department of Education (DepEd) will replace printed self-learning modules (SLMs) damaged by the recent typhoons, an education official said Monday.

“The list is being validated by our Disaster Risk Reduction Management Services Team and Bureau of Learning Resources teams. Let’s wait for the validation process first,” DepEd Undersecretary for Finance Annalyn Sevilla said in a text message to reporters.

While she did not disclose an estimated amount yet, Sevilla said the DepEd Central office’s finance unit will release additional funds for the replacement or reproduction of damaged SLMs.

“We are also considering digital copies but only for areas/regions/divisions/schools certified by the Regional Directors to be needing such and in compliance with the contextualized Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan of the schools,” she added.

Earlier, Education Secretary Leonor Briones drew flak when she said that learners can iron or dry under the sun their soaked learning modules following the onslaught of Super Typhoon Rolly. (PNA)

For buses’ benefit: 300K liters of fuel smuggled weekly from Bataan to NCR

By Nancy Carvajal

At least 300,000 liters of fuel is smuggled weekly from a shipyard in Mariveles, Bataan to garages of various bus companies in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, persons involved in transporting the product told the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

NBI Special Unit Action agent Melvin Escurel said individuals they have talked to claimed to be clueless about the smuggling of fuel.

“A witness said they just received instructions from ‘Jerome’ and ‘Eric’ to proceed to the Seafront Shipyard and wait for the barge that would fill up their tanker,’’ Escurel said.

Using a long hose, diesel is loaded into the tankers inside the shipyard from a barge anchored about 500 meters away from the dock.

The tankers are filled with fuel at least three times a week. They travel to the shipyard from a garage in Pasay City.

Escurel said four to five tankers deliver the fuel to the garages of various bus lines. One tanker, meanwhile, heads to Fairview, Quezon City to fill up a supposedly abandoned tanker.

Based on witnesses’ testimonies, Escurel said the fuel smuggling scheme involving the Bataan shipyard appears to be well organized.
