Gaspar would be the fourth judge tohandle the case following Judge Yvette Go of RTC, Branch 37; Judge Gelveson aspairing judge when Go went on leave; and Amular. RTC, Branch 35’s Judge Daniel AntonioGerardo Amular decided to inhibit from the case. In seeking the expropriation of PECO’sassets, MORE Power cited Section 10 of RA 11212 and Rule 67 Section 2 of theRevised Rules of Court authorizing it to take possession of, exercise controlover, and manage and operate all of the power distribution assets in IloiloCity. MORE Power filed the expropriationcase against PECO in March 2019 a month after President Rodrigo Duterte singedMORE Power’s franchise law (Republic Act 11212) as new power distributor inIloilo City. The city’s new power distributor alsopetitioned the court to determine the reasonable value of PECO’s powerdistribution system assets for just compensation, then order the transfer ofthe ownership of these upon payment of a just compensation. Judge Gelvezon approved the re-raffle. “Notwithstanding that the PresidingJudge performs his duties in accordance with the conscientious dictate of hisconscience and the applicable provisions of law, it has come to a point thatwhatever judgment the Presiding Judge would render in the case would not beaccepted by either the plaintiff or the defendant or maybe tainted with bias,”according to Amular. PECO, on the other hand, questionedthe constitutionality of RA 11212, specifically the sections on expropriation. The expropriation of PECO’s assets inits favor, according to MORE Power, would allow it to “immediately address andcorrect poor services, overcharging, frequent brownouts, expensive rates, oldand unsafe facilities and practices, and other service deficiencies that thiscity’s power users and consumers had long suffered.” “Since the court is the leastunderstood as an institution in the discharge of its function, the lack ofunderstanding of the rules and procedures in connection thereto would affectthe integrity of our courts to uphold the rule of law,” lamented Amular. By MORE Power’s own estimate, however,PECO’s power distribution system is valued at P481,842,450 – way below PECO’sprevious claim that its assets are worth at least P2 billion. In an order dated Jan. 15, Amularstated he opted to have the case re-raffled after consulting Executive JudgeVictor Gelvezon. The case was re-raffled to the sala ofRTC, Branch 33 of Judge Ma. Theresa Gaspar on Monday. PECO’s power distribution franchiseexpired on Jan. 19, 2019./PN MORE Power asked RTC, Branch 37 toissue a writ of possession authorizing it to take immediate control, operation,use, and disposition of PECO’s power distribution system assets. ILOILO City – A new Regional TrialCourt (RTC) branch and a new judge will be handling the expropriation casefiled by MORE Electric and Power Corp. (MORE Power) against Panay Electric Co.(PECO).
