The Presidential Commission on Good Government, citing a drain on the treasury, said that the Daily Express, regarded as a mouthpiece of ousted President Ferdinand E. Marcos during the martial-law years of the 1970s, will be closed Jan. 31.

In a letter addressed to "my countrymen" and delivered to The Times, Col. Gregorio (Gringo) Honasan also said he decided to escape Saturday from a prison ship in Manila Bay rather than face court-martial because "the Aquino government has convicted me without trial."
