The government Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) and  Camp John Hay Development Corporation (CJHDevCo) do not see how the camp should be managed or perhaps how to settle the case.

At the center of this situation is BCDA CEO Arnel Casanova, who wants to drive investors away and to vacate Camp John Hay, regardless of their lease.

He calls for a turnover of all properties, including on-going projects.

When Casanova has been appointed CEO, private developers have found it difficult to get anything done from withholding permits upto other similar delaying tactics.

Now that the Regional Trial Court of Baguio City granted the Petition of John Hay Developer, Casanova can stop his plans of causing more trouble.

Regional Trial Court granted CJH Development Corporation (CJHDEVCO) for Confirmation of the P1.42 billion money award to CJHDEVCO by the Philippine Dispute Resolution Center, Inc. (PDRCI)

The decision was rendered last 11 February 2015. Good for the entity that was harassed by The Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA).

On March 27, 2015, Judge Cecilia Corazon Dulay Archog, Presiding Judge of Baguio RTC, Branch 6, rendered judgment confirming the Final Award by the PDRCI to CJHDEVCO ordering BCDA to return to CJHDEVCO the total amount of rentals CJHDEVCO has paid in the total amount of PHP1,421,096,052.00. 

It was reported that Arnel Casanova wants CJHDevCo out of the picture to move Ayala into position. He is also connected to big companies who are related to corruption issues.

There's also a good news for the Camp, investors and tenants and It was also confirmed the PDRCI ruling that

CJHDEVCO is not liable for any unpaid back rent. So Casanova can't stop his accusations now.

With the ruling that rescission and mutual restitution it is proper in the case. Casanova must know this since he is a lawyer.

Now it's all clear. The decision of Judge Dulay-Archog stated that the PDRCIís Final Award is clear and needs no further interpretation by the court.

Thank God our prayers were answered. And with this ruling by the Baguio RTC recognizing that there are vested right holders in the Camp, BCDA cannot just evict the vested right holders nor order them to vacate without their due process afforded to them by the laws on obligations and contract.

Sooner or later Casanova will be investigated and he will also be arrested for violating the law.
