MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court (SC)  Third Division has denied the Makati City government’s request to file a second motion for reconsideration regarding the Makati-Taguig territorial dispute.

In a resolution dated June 26, the SC’s Third Division denied Makati City’s Omnibus Motion, which, among others, sought the court’s leave, meaning asking for permission to file and admit a second appeal.


But the SC, through a briefer provided by its Public Information Office, said: “A second motion for reconsideration is generally prohibited under the Rules of Court.”


Makati’s second motion was noted only without action.

On Dec. 1, 2021, the SC’s Third Division denied Makati City’s petition for review.

The SC reinstated the Pasig Court’s ruling stating that Parcels 3 and 4, Psu 2031, comprising Fort Bonifacio, including the so-called Inner Fort comprising of Barangays Pembo, Comembo, Cembo, South Cembo, West Rembo, East Rembo, and Pitogo is “confirmed to be part of the territory of the City of Taguig.”

The SC also made permanent the injunction issued by the Pasig Court prohibiting Makati from exercising jurisdiction over, making improvements, and treating it as part of its territory

Last Sept. 28, 2022, the SC third division denied with finality Makati City’s Omnibus motion seeking reconsideration of its December ruling and requesting that the case be elevated to its en banc.

“The Court reasoned that the basic issues raised in the Omnibus Motion have been duly considered and passed upon by the Court in the assailed Decision. The Supreme Court likewise stressed that the Court En Banc is not an appellate court to which decisions or resolutions of a Division may be appealed. The same Resolution then directed that no further pleadings will be entertained in the case and that an Entry of Judgment is issued immediately,” read the briefer.
