Mayor vows not to return any shares of city from CJHDevCo
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

Expect nothing.

Whatever the outcome of the pending case between the Bases Conversion and Development Authority and Camp John Hay Development Corporation before the Supreme Court, Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the city government should not be made to return the shares it initially received from the BCDA.

Domogan said the case between BCDA and the CJHDevCo has left Baguio at the losing end because it has yet to fully realize the lease rental shares it is supposed to receive from the operation of Camp John Hay.

Based on BCDA’s computation, Baguio is supposed to have over P800 million in lease rental shares. This figure as well is the subject of discussion at the city council of Baguio for the City Treasurer’s Office has been computing the city’s shares based on the original lease agreement, not the modified one, which the city government allegedly was not made privy.

Pending before the SC is the petition to review an earlier ruling of the Court of Appeals that said BCDA must pay CJHDevCo P1.4 billion because it reneged in its obligation to the developer. On the other hand, CJHDevCo was ordered to vacate CJH upon receipt of the payment.

In 2015, BCDA rescinded its contract with CJHDevCo on allegations that the developer failed to remit its shares to the government.

The matter reached the Philippine Dispute Resolution Center, which ordered BCDA to pay the developer and for CJHDevCo to leave CJH.

The Regional Trial Court Branch 6 upheld the PDRC resolution. Said resolution was elevated to the Court of Appeals, which essentially upheld majority of the lower court’s decision except the eviction of third party investors. This means that in case BCDA wins, it still could not take over the buildings, suites, and other structures built by investors that transacted with CJHDevCo.

Domogan said several investors have expressed interest in developing CJH, but pending the outcome of the case, the issue is on status quo.
