MANILA, Philippines — The Taguig City government criticized Makati City Mayor Abby Binay for claiming that the jurisdiction dispute over the Bonifacio Global City commercial district and seven barangays is not yet over.

“Our legal dispute with Makati has come to an end. However bitter the result may be to the losing party, the final decision must be accepted with good grace,” the Taguig government said on Saturday.


The Supreme Court ruled in 2021 that the Third Division issued a permanent injunction on the Makati government from exercising jurisdiction over the Inner Fort composed of the seven “Embo” (Enlisted Men’s Barangays) barangays — Pembo, Comembo, Cembo, South Cembo, West Rembo, East Rembo, and Pitogo — as well as the military reservation Fort Bonifacio, where the 240-hectare Bonifacio Global Center is located.


The court ruled that based on historical, documentary, and testimonial evidence, the contested areas fall within the territorial jurisdiction of Taguig.

Makati filed a motion for reconsideration and asked the case to be heard by the en banc, but the high court denied this.
