Biz sector backs 'no to martial law' in Negros

THE church has found an ally in the business sector for its appeal not to declare martial law in Negros, particularly in the oriental side, amid series of killings in the province.

Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), said the possible declaration of martial law, like that of the impending workers' strike against the Yanson Group of Bus Company, will have a massive adverse effect on Negros Island economy.

Carbon said both will restrict the movement of goods and people. Worse, the planned investments for Negros will be put on hold
