BAGUIO CITY – The Office of the Ombudsman set aside the complaint of Jadewell Parking Systems Corporation against Mayor Reinaldo A. Bautista for alleged inaction on its request to restore the demolished wooden structure at the Ganza parking lot in Burnham Park in deference to the court case Jadewell filed.
Lawyer Julita Manalac-Calderon, graft investigation and prosecution officer of the Public Assistance Bureau said the Office of the Ombudsman would consider Jadewell’s request “closed and terminated” because there are pending cases before the Supreme Court.
Jadewell filed a complaint when the mayor’s allegedly snubbed its January 16 and 20 letters for the mayor’s office to stop demolishing the wooden warehouse at Ganza. It also asked Bautista to restore the structures and allow the company’s return.
Bautista earlier ordered the city environment and parks management office to spruce up the Ganza parking lot last year.# nordis.net
