Reacting to the recent denial of the Supreme Court of his latest motion to for oral argument on his pending case with the SC, detained real estate developer Delfin Lee said that his counsel will immediately file a motion for consideration “so that the consolidated cases will be decided on the merits.”
In a statement issued through his counsel Lawyer Willy Rivera, the embattled property developerearlier filed an urgent motion for oral argument with the SC in all the “consolidated appeals” filed before it by the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) which consist of at least nine petitions for review.
The SC rejected him and his lawyer’s plea for oral arguments in a resolution issued recently.
“We only would like to show the magistrates of the Supreme Court and Filipino people as well,that contrary to HDMF’s claims, we have not defrauded the government and the PAG-IBIG Fund a single centavo.”
Lee lamented that notwithstanding his 100% winning streak before various courts of law, he is now languishing in jail.
“It’s about time that our Supreme Court steps in into this issue to bring back respect for law and order by our police and government officials, for the orderly administration of justice.” Lee added.
The embattled housing developer insists that the Php6.6 Billion being flaunted by HDMF in the media is not a loan of Globe Asiatique from HDMF.
Lee earlier filed an urgent motion for oral argument with the SC for the 5 cases appealed by HDMF and DoJ.
Reacting further to the denial of the Supreme Court of his latest motion to SC, Lee cited that Pag Ibig Fund together with the Department of Justice “lost all the cases” against him and his company, Globe Asiatique Realty Holding Corp.
“In all the nine appeals filed by HDMF and DOJ now pending before the SC, at least 27 justices of the Court of Appeals and 2 Regional Trial Court judges sided with us rendering judgments ranging from—a declaration that HDMF breached its contracts with Globe Asiatique that resulted to all these fiasco.
“From a quashal of the Information for syndicated estafa, recall and lifting of the warrants of arrest against me and my co-accused Christina Sagun and Atty. Alex Alvarez, and the dismissal of the syndicated estafa case against all of us for lack of probable cause for the crime of syndicated estafa”, we still remain languishing in jail
Lee lamented that notwithstanding his 100% winning streak before various courts of law, he is now languishing in jail. “Its about time that our Supreme Court steps in into this issue to bring back respect for law and order by our police and government officials, for the orderly administration of justice.” Lee added.
“The Php6.6 Billion being flaunted by HDMF in the media is not a loan of Globe Asiatique from HDMF”, Lee insisted.
Lee emphasized that even in the recent Senate hearing conducted by the Committee on Urban Planning Lawyer Darlene Berberabe, President of HDMF-Pag Ibig Fund admits that the Php6.6 Billion is an end-users loan which means that it is the totality of the obligations of the PAG-IBIG members who bought the houses and lots at the Xevera projects of Globe Asiatique.
“This is precisely the reason why up to now, HDMF has not even sent us any demand letter for the alleged Php6.6 Billion claim. There is no pending case filed by HDMF against Globe Asiatique to claim this Php6.6 Billion.
As a matter of fact, the counterclaim of HDMF in Civil Case No. 10-1120 which we filed against it for breach of contract is only Php12 Million which accounts for attorney’s fees and cost of litigation,” Lee emphasized.
