Bonifacio Global City belongs to Makati

The Court of Appeals has declared that parts of Fort Bonifacio that includes the posh area of Bonifacio Global City are indeed part of Makati City.

The decision was released Tuesday, overturning the ruling made by the Pasig Regional Trial court in July 2011 that declared the disputed 729.15 hectares of land under Taguig jurisdiction.

"Contrary to the findings of the lower court as between pieces of evidence presented, Taguig was not able to prove this greater weight of evidence to merit a favorable decision," said the Court of Appeals in the 37-page decision.

Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, however, said the decision was wrong.

"The CA decision, with due respect, is erroneous," Cayetano said. "We will fight to make sure that the disputed land remains with Taguig," she added. "We are confident that we will ultimately win this fight."

It will be such a big loss to Taguig in terms of tax revenues if the BGC is taken away from the city's jurisdiction.
