cases vs. gov’t


The Supreme Court First Division has denied for lack of merit the motion for reconsideration filed by retired policeman Victor Eduardo on the cases he had filed against Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia et al, involving the Bacolod City Government Center.

The high court decision upholds the earlier resolution of the Ombudsman and of the Supreme Court denying the same cases.

“This the final nail on the coffin of Eduardo’s dead cases,” Bacolod City Legal Officer Joselito Bayatan said yesterday, upon receipt of the SC decision promulgated on September 5, 2011.moremoremore
