Zambales mining firm bombed

IBA, Zambales -- Two unidentified armed men bombed a mining outfit in Sta. Cruz town, a belated police report said yesterday.

Initial investigation conducted by policemen under Senior Supt. Rolando Felix, Zambales police director, said the Bueno-Coady International Trading Corp. based in Barangays Guisguis and Guinabon, Sta. Cruz sustained five successive bomb explosions. Bonnet wearing suspects reportedly threw the bombs at various sites of the firm.

“They were riding in tandem aboard a motorcycle with no plate numbers while throwing their wares like garbage,” Felix said.

“Maybe the suspects only meant to harass the owners for something else we don’t know,” he added.

This is the first incident of bombing directed against mining owners in the area.

Police probers said two blasts occurred at 4:55 a.m. on June 25 near the guard post center 4 of BCITC in Sitio Bolas, Barangay Guisguis manned by Tiger Watch Security Agency. Five minutes later. Two more powerful hit the guard post of JFBI Security Agency at Barangay Guinabon, Sta. Cruz satellite office of the firm. Another bomb exploded about and hour later again at the BCITC compound in Guinabon.

A SOCO team is now combing for evidence to identify the kind of explosives used.

Baby Bueno Coady, owner of the firm, said she smelled “competition with a huge and influential business tycoon” as the cause of the bombing.

In a phone interview she said she’s willing to identify the suspects when the proper time comes.

“Mabuti walang tinamaan. The bombs jarred our whole yard,” she said.

Meanwhile, a staff member of Central Luzon police director Chief Supt. Errol Pan confirmed that a summit among all mining establishment owners in Zambales is slated to be held in Camp Olivas next week to thresh out rising disputes and other operational problems in the area.
