Malacanang maintains controversial house not Ochoa’s

MANILA, March 8 — Malacañang is fully satisfied with the explanation of Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. regarding the ownership of the so-called “glass mansion” in Quezon City as it expressed hope his statement would put an end to the controversy.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said the documents showing that Ochoa does not own the property speak for themselves.

“Based on the documents, it appears that his name is not registered. I understand his name is not part of the stockholders of record in the corporation. And, for now, those documents stand so there’s no reason for us to say otherwise,” Lacierda told a press briefing today.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said the documents showing that Ochoa does not own the property speak for itself.

Lacierda strongly believed the Executive Secretary had fully addressed the issue in his earlier statement.

“We leave it with the Executive Secretary to decide upon which course of action to take, but we have to mention the fact that he already made a statement before and that he also mentioned in that particular statement that this will be his last utterance on the matter,” Lacierda said. (PNA)
