Sian was reported to have manhandled Ronnie Licanao at the city hall, Tuesday morning.

Bascon said he has called the attention of both Sian and Licanao.

Bascon told the Negros Daily Bulletin that Licanao decided not to press charges against Sian and did not have the incident reported to the police.

"They settled the case between them amicably," Bascon said.

He added that Sian has apologized for his actions to the city chief executive and also asked for forgiveness from Licanao.

"We are all Himamaylanons so settle it among yourselves," Bascon said.

Reports said that Sian bumped into Licanao at the city hall Tuesday morning and punched the latter without any provocation.

It was learned that Licanao has reportedly asked for money from Sian last January for him to process the permits for Sian’s building but has not done so.

"There is no truth that we amicably settled the case against Himamaylan city councilor Harry Sian."

This was the strongly-worded statement of Jessie Boy Gellecanao, and the elder brother of Ronie, a former city councilor of the city.

City Mayor Agustin Ernesto "Tinto" Bascon reportedly arranged the settlement. But Jessie Boy denied the mayor’s claim.

They only reported to blotter the incident yesterday (Friday, September 19) when Ronie had already taken enough rest.

Himamaylan City PNP Chief Supt Antonieto Cañete was temporarily relieved from his post, while PO2 Aireen Taco, Head of Himamaylan City Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) had asked to be relieved from her post early this week.

The relief of two police officers has something to do with the rape case filed against a 70- year-old City Councilor, Harry Sian by a 17-year-old house help, according to SSupt Milko Lirazan, Provincial Director.

Cañete is now temporarily assigned at the PNP Service Headquarters in Camp Crame.

His deputy, Police Inspector Norman Bravo is taking his place.

Taco, on the other hand, asked to be assigned at NOPPO- WCPD starting Thursday for her security and to avoid pressure.

But Lirazan clarified that Taco is still assigned to represent the case during the arraignment.

Conflicts between Cañete and Taco arose when the latter filed the case without the presence of the former. Cañete was in Iloilo City when Taco filed the case.

Taco said there is no need to wait for Cañete to file the case because it was their duty and responsibility.

She filed the rape case in relation to Republic Act 7610 (The Special Protection for a Child against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act).

But Cañete would like to see the affidavit first. He also claimed that he was not furnished with copies and the sex video taken by the victim.

A car reportedly belonging to Himamaylan City councilor Harry Sian was seen in the vicinity of the victim’s temporary shelter in Manapla town Monday evening.

Vice Mayor Greg Gasataya and the organization for outreach program at the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos called "UCDO" spearheaded by their Supervisor Ms. Mely Flores extending their support to more than 100 families affected by fire last September 2, 2014 at Purok Katilingban, Brgy.39, Bacolod City.*

The 17-year-old rape victim is now under her uncle’s protection along with other members of the family who consider the alleged act of following the victim as a threat against her.

Sian is accused of sexual abuse by the victim since she was 14 years old at the Sian household in Himamaylan City.

Her uncle disclosed, they have spotted the car of Sian with persons trying to talk to the victim.

One of them even introduced himself as member of the media.

But they were not able to see the victim or hold an interview because it was already dark.

The victim’s family is now assisted by Manapla municipal government through Mayor Lourdes Escalante.

They called up Manapla Police under Senior Inspector Edencio Gregorio who immediately responded but the car had already gone.

Asked if the person in the car would like to negotiate with them to drop the case, the uncle said his niece would not consider such proposal. She is bent on pursuing the criminal case.

Sian is accused of violating Republic Act 7610 (The Special Protection for a Child against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act) by sexually abusing a minor housemaid allegedly on several occasions over the past two years.

The case was filed Monday.
