BCDA dismisses raps

STATE-RUN Bases Conversion and Development Authority dismissed the perjury complaint filed against BCDA president Arnel Paciano Casanova by Camp John Hay Development Corp., saying it is a form of “harassment” and will not stop the agency from protecting the interest of the government.

“Obviously, this perjury complaint against BCDA president and [chief executive] Arnel Casanova is intended to derail BCDA’s efforts in holding CJHDevco accountable for its acts and omissions,” BCDA legal counsel Demetrio Custodio Jr. said in a statement over the weekend.

“The filing of this harassment suit, however, will not deter BCDA from performing its duty to uphold and protect the rights and interests of the government and the Filipino people,” BCDA corporate secretary Peter Paul Flores said.

Manuel Ubarra Jr., CJHDevco vice president for litigation, alleged that Casanova wrongly accused CJHDevco officials of using false pretenses to deceive and induce the agency to enter into a ‘dacion en pago’ agreement on May 27, 2011 to settle its outstanding obligation with BCDA.

But Custodio said “BCDA exercised due diligence and did not deliberately and willfully omit facts when it filed the estafa complaint against Robert John Sobrepeña and other responsible officers of CJHDevco.”
