City maintains its ownership of Asin properties in Abra
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

The city government maintains that the area in Nangalisan, Tuba, Benguet where the Asin hot springs, pools, and hydro plants are located is a property of the City of Baguio.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the municipality of Tuba knows very well that the Asin hot springs is a property of the City of Baguio, in reaction to the certification released by the Office of the Municipal Assessor of Tuba, Benguet saying that Baguio has no registered property at Nangalisan based on its records as of Nov. 14, 2016, when the certification was issued.

The document, which was originally posted in the social media on June 4, has been shared in the Facebook group page of the Baguio Correspondents and Broadcasters Club by Roger Sinot on June 6.

Sinot used to lease and operate the Asin pools from the city government but incurred accumulated unpaid rentals. He lost in the case filed by the city government.

Domogan said as far he was concerned, the Asin properties have been duly registered in the name of the city, but if the information was true, the General Services Office and the City Legal Office will have the properties registered.

He said what might have not been registered was the area in the property that has been added because of accretion.

“If such is not declared in the records of Tuba, we will look into it and have it declared. However, that will not change the truth that the area is owned by the city government, the same with the Asin hydros. It is in the city’s charter,” the mayor said on Wednesday.

He said that the city bought the property in 1935 from the Ramirez family and had the swimming pools developed. It has an existing fence that was reinforced through the years, but the same has been destroyed.

“The court has already decided and they lost. The same has been implemented but they continue to defy it,” he said.

He said CLO will file contempt and malicious mischief cases against Sinot or whoever destroyed the fence and those who continue to defy the court decisions.
