Negros Occidental Branch 50 Regional Trial Court Judge Estefanio Libutan Jr. denied the petition of SMPHI for it to be declared the winning bidder of the 7.7-hectare property of the Negros Occidental provincial government in Bacolod, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. announced Monday.

SMPHI did not issue a statement yesterday on the RTC decision, and it is not known if it will file a motion for reconsideration.moremoremore
