BUKIDNON NEWS | BUKIDNON | BUKIDNON ONLINE – As previously reported here on, the Province of Bukidnon has a new police director in the person of Senior Supt. Rustom Duran. Duran, a native of Malaybalay City, the capital of Bukidnon, used to be assigned at the Regional Police Community Relations Division. Senior Supt. Rustom Duran was also a former provincial police chief of Camiguin Island.

Now the big question is…can the new Bukidnon police director do his job in the next 6 months? Will he survive for the next 6 months? Or will things just get worse here in the Province of Bukidnon? can’t help but ask this when we found out that the new Provincial Police Director was reportedly given 6 months to prove his worth.

Bukidnon Vice Governor Jose Ma. Zubiri, Jr. reportedly asked Duran to do his best in 6 months’ time and that he had 6 months to catch the “big fish.”

Duran was told to conduct operations against operators of video karera and that he must also look into the alleged illegal activities of a certain gambling lord called “Bayan.” This Bayan fellow allegedly operates illegal gambling activities in Valencia, Malaybalay and other areas in Bukidnon.

So what we’re curious now is…can Duran succeed in proving his worth in 6 months’ time?

  • I think I would be more worried about whether he could protect businessmen from extortion. Those priorities are not harming anyone other then those that choose to put themselves in that position.

    Protecting business from illegal extortion could promote more business and more jobs. The people of Bukidnon deserve better and they deserve a chance.

    I have considered doing business in Bukidnon myself and when reading that the past or present police chief told business people that there was nothing they could do to help them in regards to extortion; My thoughts are how is that possible. Arrest the people who are extorting or threatening business. Business people create jobs and support a community.

    Really they should have their priorities straight. Create a healthy environment for people give them jobs so they won’t have to be reduced to accepting work in unhealthy environments. Give the people of Bukidnon a chance. Give business the support it needs, not answers like there is nothing we can do for you, take care of yourself. Do businesses pay taxes that pay the wages of the police forces. They sure do and what do they get in return.
