The military’s campaign against communist rebels in Aurora has sown fear among residents and discredited the Catholic Church and priests there, the Prelature of Infanta in Aurora said in a pastoral statement read at the start of Christmas dawn Masses on Dec. 16.

In a statement sent by e-mail to the Inquirer on Wednesday, the prelature said soldiers have been inspecting buses traveling along the Dinalungan-Casiguran-Dilasag route in northern Aurora, ordering passengers to alight for inspections. The same is done among passengers in Maria Aurora town.

THE government said the missing road links leading to the eastern seaboard of the Strong Republic Nautical Highway are already being constructed, in time for the opening of the new trade route linking the islands of the country by next year.

Undersecretary Manuel Bonoan of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), said in an interview that construction of the previously identified port-to-road projects for the eastern route can be completed by the second half of next year.
