It was erroneous.
This was how the city government of Taguig described the Court of Appeals (CA) decision, which ruled that Fort Bonifacio actually belongs to Makati City.
The Office of Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano continues to insist that the 729-hectare property is under the jurisdiction of Taguig City.
“The CA decision, with due respect, is erroneous,” Cayetano said.
Meanwhile, Taguig City administrator and lawyer Joel Montales vowed to appeal the CA ruling.
“We will fight to make sure that the disputed land remains with Taguig. We are confident that we will ultimately win this fight,” Montales said.
The Taguig City officials issued the statement after Makati City government score in a two-decade battle for the jurisdiction over Fort Bonifacio.
In a July 15 ruling released on Monday, CA said Fort Bonifacio belongs to Makati because “some of Taguig's evidence is inadmissible.”
According to the ruling, Presidential Proclamation Nos. 2475 and 518 that were issued during the Marcos and Cory Aquino administrations did not ‘alter’ boundaries in Metro Manila.
The high court explained it only confirmed that Fort Bonifacio area is under the jurisdiction of Makati."
