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.
