Exclusive: Makati, Taguig row over Global City, other areas far from over



THE dispute between the Makati City and Taguig City is far from after the Court of Appeals (CA) decided to hear the petition filed by the former seeking the nullification of the order issued by the Regional Trial Court (RTC) in Pasig City which affirmed the jurisdiction of the latter over the 200-hectare Bonifacio Global City complex and several other barangays in Makati.

In a three-page resolution written by Associate Justice Hakim Abdulwahid, the CA’s Seventh Division junked Taguig of the motion the dismissal of the petition government.

Makati City, in its petition, sought the annulment of judgment issued by Judge Leili Cruz of the RTC in Pasig, that affirmed Judge Briccio Ygana’s order issued last year which held that aside from the Bonifacio Global City complex, Taguig City also has jurisdiction over the so-called Inner Fort comprising of Barangays Pembo, Comembo, Cembo, South Cembo, West Rembo, East Rembo and Pitogo.
