BCDA-CJHDevCo Economic Squabble Anew

Do Casanova's whims and caprices lead him to his waterloo? Who knows?

By the way, who is Arnel Paciano Casanova? For everyboddy to know, Arnel Paciano D Casanova is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). He is a champion in anti-corruption by winning against Philippine armed forces generals to recover illegally-acquired government property worth $200 million according to his areas of expertise written in his biography.

Casanova's Involvement in the CJHDevCo's Mess

Let's consider what is his involvement as alleged by his accusers. He has played major part in the management squabble with CJHDevCo over the mess of nonpayment of rentals by CJHDevCo which has been decided by the arbitration tribunal in favor of his detractor, CJHDevCo. And he is advice to abide with the decision.

But, Casanova has manifested a resistance by not honoring the existing contracts made by the actual locators, lessees and tenants of Camp John Hay which had subcontracted with the CJHDevCo. Instead he insists that they want them to vacate the camp and he wants CJHDEVCO to shoulder the eviction expenses for those locators, lessees and tenants.

He claims that those third parties don't have the rights over the properties and possessions in the camp. In fact, BCDA insists that they have the right to sue them for they're illegal.

On the other hand, those third parties have deemed that Casanova is showing himself of being a graft and corrupt BCDA executive. He is no good example for them

In defense of their existing subcontractors, the CJHDEVCO official made clear for them that their possessions would be protected and they would be given legal services to protect their rights.

And lastly, Casanova would be legally complied to pay back CJHDevCo the hefty sum of PHP1,421,096,052.00 for the rentals made by the latter as confirmed by Baguio City Regional Trial Court as per award by the PDRCI. And this award is "clear and needs no further interpretation by the court".

Casanova's Defense

How do Casanova refute all these things? He is definite that those locators, lessees and tenants are illegal and they should be sued to court. But the Baguio court confirmed the award decided by PDRCI in favor of CJHDevCo.

Will this economic battle between BCDA and CJHDevCo still remain unsettle anew?

The residents of Baguio City are at a loss in this situation. Their economic growth would possibly be affected. Baguio City's coffers would probably be drained of some revenue which would come from those tenants,subleesees, locators of the camp.

Who can solve this?
