Makati-Taguig dispute

Fort Bonifacio, Makati City. Does that sound better to you?

Did you know that Fort Bonifacio, among other barangays, is part of a bitter tug-of-war  between Makati and Taguig? In 1993, Taguig filed an action  for judicial confirmation of its territory and boundary limits against Makati, Teofisto P. Guingona in his capacity as Executive Secretary, Angel Alcala in his capacity as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and Abelardo Palad, Jr. in his capacity as Director of the Land Management Bureau.  The complaint was raffled to the Regional Trial Court (RTC) of Pasig, Branch 153, and was docketed as Civil Case No. 63896.

Nearly twenty years and at least two Supreme Court cases (G.R. No. 163175, 27 June 2008 and G.R. No. 168781 14 September 2007)  later, it appears that RTC-Pasig finally issued a decision. From the looks of things, it appears that it was in favor of Taguig. Now, Makati has asked the Court of Appeals to nullify said ruling, claiming, among others, that the decision was issued after Judge Briccio Ygana retired.




  2. FORT BONIFACIO, MAKATI CITY, OF COURSE! IT SOUNDS BETTER! - WE DON'T WANT TO BE IN TAGUIG COZ TAGUIG ISN'T AS GOOD AS MAKATI CITY! and MAKATI IS WAY BETTER THAN TAGUIG, we got benefits every year, Clean and Organized.... No Offense, you are imitating China, conquering lands they didn't own.... Don't continue this issue! TAGUIG is Bigger than Makati, and you can develop your own land not buying a land from another developed city!

  3. Mas magandang marinig ang FORT BONIFACIO, MAKATI CITY, dahil tama lang ito, ayon sa sinabi ng Court of Appeals noong August 15, 2013. Sa lumabas na desisyon ng Court of Appeals, kinilala na ang BONIFACIO GLOBAL CITY ay nasa jurisdiction ng MAKATI CITY. BENTENG taon na ang pag-aantay ng mga taga-MAKATI na maibalik ang mga barangay at karatig lugar na tunay na parte ng MAKATI, kasi mula pa nang mga 1970s doon na sila bumoboto. Bago pa naging BGC yan, pinaglaban na ng MAKATI na ng lupa at mga barangay ay sakop ng MAKATI. Kasama sa desisyon ng CA ang lahat ng argumento, dokumento at iba't ibang datos, at lumabas sa pagsusuri ng CA na MAKATI ang tunay na kinalalagyan ng BGC.

  4. The fact that the Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Makati, therefore, The Fort indeed belongs to Makati. Makati abides by the rule of court, then, Taguig should do too.
    History also claims that Fort Bonifacio is really under Makati when President Marcos made Proclamation No. 2475 and Pres Cory Aquino's Proclamation No. 518.
