‘Battle royale’ was never fought

I write in reaction to an item in Bizz Buzz “titled Ongpin-Ashmore battle royale” (Inquirer, 7/15/13).

By

Only A few days before the elections, the Quezon City government exempted squatters in the National Government Center near the Batasang Pambansa from paying real estate taxes on their homes and stores.

Gotesco has new victim: Evercrest Golf Club

By

Remember Gotesco Investments (Gotesco), the company that was able to have a 22,585.80-square-meter Caloocan City-owned lot worth more than P182 million titled to its name without paying Caloocan a single centavo and there built the first Ever-Gotesco shopping mall, which was gutted by fire recently; the same company that grabbed the Gotesco Tower in Manila from its new owners (As I See It, 11/9/12), the same company that took over the property of Joey de Jesus in Marikina City on the same day that it grabbed Gotesco Tower? It has struck again, this time at the Evercrest Golf Club and Resort in Nasugbu, Batangas.

Important

By

One, frankly, I couldn’t understand why no one asked if only Renato Corona’s unit in Bellagio was damaged by the typhoon. Serge Osmeña asked about the severity of the damage, Jinggoy Estrada asked about the severity of the typhoon, and the prosecutors and some senator-judges asked if it was normal for Megaworld to sell damaged units.

SC should revisit judicial fees

By

This is a true-to-life story. Two brothers inherited a parcel of raw real estate in Laguna then worth P30 million and became co-owners thereof with the title registered in their names since 1988. Relying on the government-backed security and reliability of their Torrens title, they never imagined their property would be gone without their knowing [...]
