THE businessmen who reportedly seized a condominium building in Makati clarified yesterday they did not intrude into the property as claimed by their detractors and said what transpired was the other way around.
In a copy of an incident report for October 16 furnished by Melissa Chua of Quadrillion Property, it stated that it was Oliver Bonus, a certain Seokwan Hahn and about 50 goons who invaded the Infinity Towers and pushed out security men and employees of the building.
According to the report, Bonus and his company barricaded the building to prevent anyone from entering it.
“Mr Joaquin Rodriguez Sr. was the first on the scene and was able to enter with police support,” the report said.
“Mrs. Elsie Chua of Quadrillion arrived and was refused entry. She was able to jump over the barricade but was hurt by some of the goons,” the report added.
Further, the report said Mr. Joaquin Rodriguez Jr. arrived last on the scene and was not allowed access.
“It should be noted that neither of them had bodyguards, goons and security personnel with them,” the report said.
Chua’s group said the pronouncements made by Bonus’ party in a story of the Daily Tribune last Nov. 12 were not true.
In the story, Bonus said it was the Rodriguezes and Chua accompanied by goons who forcibly entered the building and threatened the former and his group.
In her letter, Chua admitted there is an intra-company dispute involving her group and that of Bonus.
“There is an ongoing intra-company dispute involving Beccomax Property and Development Corp. headed by Mr. Joaquin Rodriguez Sr., and Greenstone Serviced Residences Makati Inc. represented by Oliver Bonus and Seokwhan Hahn, with regard to the management of Stamford Court Salcedo Makati, formerly Somerset Salcedo.Quadrillion Property Management, Inc. headed by Mrs. Melesa Chua, has been commissioned by Beccomax Group to ensure the rightful turnover of the property and safeguard the security of its residents,” Chua said.
