LOCSIN BARES’ PLOT’ TO SELL PH PROPERTIES IN JAPAN
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. revealed a “plot” to sell four Philippine properties in Japan.
The DFA secretary twitted: “There is another plot to dispose of four of our Japan properties. This is a second Pearl Harbor perpetrated by Filipinos on our own patrimony,”
He did not identify who is behind the said plot.
According to a Supreme Court decision, the four are “properties and the capital goods and services procured from the Japanese government for national development projects are part of the indemnification to the Filipino people for their losses in life and property and their suffering during World War II.”
These are the 3,179-square meter Philippine property on 306 Roppongi St. 5-Chome Minato-ku in Tokyo; the 2,489.96-sq.m. Nampeidai property at 11-24 Nampeidai-machi, Shibuya-ku also in Tokyo; the 764.72 sq.m. commercial property at 63 Naniwa-cho in Kobe; and the residential property at 1-980-2 Obanoyama-cho, Shinohara, Nada-ku, Kobe.
Locsin rejected using the plight of veterans by those pushing the sale of Philippine properties and raise funds for them.
The Department of Foreign Affairs, according to Locsin, already sent Congress its opposition to the sale.
