DOJ denies
Monico appeal

Department of Justice Secretary Leila De Lima has junked the Feb. 17, 2012 request for reconsiderationof Monico Puentevella of the Jan. 27, 2012 DOJ decision dismissing the appeal filed by Rolling Hills Memorial Park Inc. against the City Government of Bacolod.

The appeal was in relation to City Ordinance No. 565, series of 2011, or “An Ordinance Approving the Revised Local Revenue Code of Bacolod City.”

De Lima anchored her denial of Puentevella’s appeal on his failure to still submit the required documents and pay the U.P Legal Research fee amounting to P25, and also because the case was already filed by RHMPI against the City Government in the Regional Trial Court.moremoremore
