City officials to seek
dismissal of 12 cases


There is no doubt about it, Bacolod City is the true and rightful owner of the lot on which the new Government Center stands.

With the title of the lot already turned over to the city, a motion to dismiss the 12 cases filed by retired policeman Victor Eduardo against Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia and several city officials will be filed before the Ombudsman this week, Vicente Petierre III, secretary to the mayor, said yesterday.

He also said this belies claims of detractors that the government center was built without a land title. moremoremore
