Mercado gets TRO from Appellate Court vs Judge Gonzalez

MAASIN CITY – The battle at Subang Daku river continues with The Southern Leyte provincial government represented by Gov. Roger G. Mercado getting a TRO (temporary restraining order) from the Appellate Court against an RTC judge.

A copy obtained by the Inquirer, The TRO issued by Court of Appeals 20th Division restrained presiding Judge Rolando Gonzalez of RTC Branch 39 in Sogod, Southern Leyte from “implementation of the Writ of Prohibitory Injunction issued pursuant to the RTC’s Resolution of June 16 2014.”

The TRO also “restrained the conduct of further proceedings in Civil Case No. 632-C.”

The CA TRO further ordered Jusgw Gonzalez: "You, your officers, representatives, agents snd or any other person or agency assisting for and in your behalf, are hereby ordered to cease and desist from implementing or enforcing the Writ of Preliminary Prohibitory Injunction..."

The TRO was signed by its Division Clerk of Court May Faith L. Trumata-Rebotiaco on November 20, 2014. It will take effect within 60 days.

The case stemmed from Judge Gonzalez’ granting of Writ of Preliminary Prohibitory Injunction to sand and gravel industrial permittees Ernesto U. Dacay, Ma. Selena Salas both of Cebu city and brothers Cesar Servacio Jr. and Rodulfo Servacio on June 16, 2014.

The permittees asked RTC court in Sogod for Writ of Preliminary Prohibitory Injunction after Gov. Gov. Mercado issued a cease and desist order of sand and gravel extraction from the Subang Daku river, saying that the permittees have no permit from the provincial government.

In their case against the governor, the operators said they don’t need a from the governor saying the area they operated exceed 5 hectares and that only the MGB (Mines and Geo-science Bureau) regional office has the sole authority to grant permit if its above the 5 has.

They said they only need two permits from two LGU’s, from the barangays where they operated and the town where the operations is located.

However, Mercado contended that they have to apply for a permit from the provincial gov’t. citing a Supreme Court decided case in Lara vs. Cagayan provincial government.

But Gonzalez saw it otherwise and issued the Writ of Preliminary Prohibitory Injunction to the operators. Thus the appeal of the provincial gov’t. to the CA.

MAASIN CITY – Indonesian pugilist Elly Ray has promised to knock out Maasinhon Asian Boxing Federation (ABF) titlist Adonis Aguelo Singwangcha in fourth round.

Ray will challenge the ABF lightweight crown of Aguelo Singwangcha on November 11 at the Maasin gym at 6:00 p.m.

It would the first title defense of the Maasinhon who ABF lightweight last year in Talisay Cebu.

“I’m prepared much for this title. I promise you I will knock him out on the fourth round,” said Ray as interpreted by his lady manager Rose Corano during a brief press conference before weigh-in held at the bus terminal here on Monday.  

Rose, who manages two other Filipino boxers, said, “I believed my boxer even if he lives and trained in Bali and I believed he will knocked out the Filipino.”

Both have almost even records with Aguelo’s record of 24 fights 12 by ko’s and 10 losses and two draws against Ray’s 25-14-11. Aguelo said most of his losses were fight outside the country. “Those losses I got were from my fights abroad. Even if I win some of those fight, I lost because of hometown decision,” said Aguelo, who is from mountain village of Matin-ao in Maasin City. He is now based in Thailand. He started his boxing career in the city at the helms of Maasin City Sport Council.

Maasin City Mayor Malone Samaco, who brought many boxing bouts in the city including the championship bout of Pagara brothers, who are both from the city against Indonesians including this one said he will continue to bring big fights to the city.

“We want to continue to inspire our athletes here by bringing fights like this. We will hone-up our boxers in their amateur days and recommend them to big promoters thereafter. But they have to finish their schooling first.”

The mayor was forced to answer he will be running for vice-mayor next election when asked whether his expertise in training athletes be brought to the province when he should intend to move up to the province after he finished his term on 2016.

“I will not move up. I will remain in Maasin and run for vice-mayor. That’s my frank revelation.”

Meanwhile, Aguelo’s handler, Naris Singwangcha, who co-promote the championship, said “I love the Philippines and the Filipinos and I love Maasin.” He added that he loves boxing very much. “I don’t take anything from my boxers.”
