option vs SMPHI
By: Dolly Yasa
BACOLOD City – Negros Occidental governor Alfredo Marañon yesterday said that the provincial government has not received yet an official copy of the Temporary Restraining Order issued by the Court of Appeals on the Capitol’s 7.7-hectare prime property it awarded to Ayala Land Inc.
The TRO was sought by SM Prime Holdings Inc. (SMPHI).
Marañon hinted that “a legal action against SMPHI is an option” for going to court after its failure to win the right to develop the property on lease and purchase mode.
When the provincial government receives the official copy of the TRO, he said he will direct the provincial lawyers to file a motion for reconsideration.
“That is the usual procedure,” he pointed point.
He claimed that in the absence of an official copy, the provincial government will continue with what they have to do as far as the Ayala Land deal is concerned, confirming further that the documents were already sent to COA Manila for approval. He clarified that the matter of COA review is procedural.
