contracts with Ayala

The Regional Trial Court of Bacolod denied a second Temporary Restraining Order sought by the SM Prime Holdings Inc., and the Negros Occidental Sangguniang Panlalawigan yesterday unanimously approved the deed of conditional sale and lease contract for AyalaLand’s takeover of 7.7 hectares of provincial government-owned prime property in Bacolod City.

SMPHI in an amended petition filed Tuesday before RTC Branch 50 asked that a TRO be issued against Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr., and the members of the Committee on Awards and Disposal of Real Properties and SP to prevent them from carrying out the sale of the property.

But Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Estefanio Libutan Jr. on Tuesday denied the TRO saying he saw no compelling reason to depart from his July 14 denial of the first TRO sought by SMPHI, provincial government lawyer MaryAnn Manayon-Lamis said.moremoremore
