Taguig, Makati tell court: Keep Pateros out of our Ft. Boni row



The city governments of Taguig and Makati insisted on their respective claims to Fort Bonifacio and urged a local court to reject a third claimant, the municipality of Pateros.

Both Taguig and Makati on Thursday filed motions seeking the dismissal of Pateros’ civil case, which was tackled in a hearing for the first time at Taguig City Regional Trial Court Branch 271.

Makati asked Judge Paz Esperanza Cortez to toss out the case or at least suspend the proceedings in view of an older pending dispute between Makati and Taguig over Fort Bonifacio.

Makati reiterated its contention that Fort Bonifacio, once part of a military reserve and now a booming commercial hub east of the city’s central business district, had been under its jurisdiction since the Spanish era and even after it was first transformed into a fort by the Americans in 1902.
