SC sends BCGC
case back to RTC’
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The Supreme Court First Division denied with finality the motion for reconsideration filed by former mayor and now Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia of its resolution dated April 21, 2014 which denied the petition for review on certiorari, in the case involving the Bacolod City Government Center project.
This means that the case will now be sent back to the Regional Trial Court for resolution.
The case filed by Miguel Carriedo, Jesus Lazaro, Ben Solilapsi, Allan Calilan and Abraham Tingson, against Leonardia et al., challenged the legality of the contract for the construction and site development of the BCGC.

Degamo said he was merely reacting to the statements of Marañon, reported in print and broadcast media in Bacolod, particularly one that says, “in the end, it will be the President, not Degamo who will decide whether the island region should be created or not”.
