OSG SEEKS DOCUMENTS TO ASCERTAIN GROUNDS FOR NULLFICATION OF TORRES CLAIMS

Written by Sandra Joyce Borgueta   

The Office of the Solicitor General has sent a letter to the Quezon City Assessor’s Office dated September 12, 2011, requesting for additional documents such as tax declarations to include these in the assessment of the veracity of the claims made by Mr. Wilfredo Torres to the parcels of land situated in Quezon City that covers 32,347 sq.ms. and 15,291 sq.ms., respectively.  A similar letter was forwarded to the Registrar of Deeds Atty. Ernesto Quilala requesting for copies of Transfer Certificate of Titles (TCTs) and survey plans of the properties that were covered by the titles owned by Torres.

This comes a few days after the OSG, in behalf of the Land Registration Authority (LRA) filed an amended complaint last September 08, 2011 against Manuel Alino, Wilfredo S. Torres and the Register of Deeds that sought the cancellation of the titles allegedly owned by respondent Wilfredo S. Torres.

Torres recently attempted to seize control of the 24–hectare property in Quezon City and threatened the residents of the area. The titles owned by Torres were supposedly issued by the Register of Deeds of Quezon City in the name of one Manuel Aliño.

In the said complaint, it was revealed that upon close examination, the LRA found that there were inconsistencies in the technical descriptions of the titles as well as indications of forgery.
