Page | 2
was issued last February 1, 2016 (a copy of which is attached hereto as Annex “C”
and made an integral part hereof) pursuant a Decision dated July 27, 2015, the
dispositive portion of which was quoted therein is hereby quoted hereunder,
thus:

“WHEREFORE, premises considered, Judgement is hereby rendered as


follows:

1. DECLARING plaintiff ROMEO U. DELGADO, JR. as the bonafide tenant


to the two (2) portions of the subject landholding with an area of 4.0

3. DIRECTING the respondents and all persons acting on their behalf to

4. ORDERING the DAR, thru the Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer


(MARO) of the locality concerned to facilitate the immediate
execution of the corresponding agricultural leasehold contract
involving the subject landholding pursuant to R.A. 3844, as amended
and its implementing guidelines.

SO ORDERED.”

8. That, in the above-mentioned Writ of Execution, Engr. Ritchell Jhon


V. Amoguis, DAR Provincial Sheriff in Tandag, Surigao del Sur, was directed by OIC
Regional Adjudicate Glenn L. Auza to implement the decision of the subject case
in coordination with the Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer (MARO) of Lingig,
Surigao del Sur, and, if necessary, to seek the assistance of the Philippine National
Police (PNP) to implement the said decision;

9. That, subsequent to the supposed implementation of the aforestated


July 27, 2015 DARAB Decision, it appeared that while herein tenant-respondent
ATTENDED TO THE 3.5 HECTARES as directed/awarded, he TOTALLY
DISREGARDED AND/OR EVEN ABANDONED THE 4.0 HECTARES PORTION;

10. That, as far as the 4.0 hectare portion of the Subject Property is
concerned, it turned out that herein respondent Romeo U. Delgado, Jr. was never
a tenant thereto;
Page | 3
a. in fact, in lieu of the same and for a limited period of time only, he
harvested the coconuts of another parcel of land, in total violation
of the above-quoted July 27, 2015 Decision of the DARAB;

a.1. needless to say, there is another tenant in that other


property in the person of ______________;

a.2. the fact alone that herein respondent did not know the exact
location of the land that was supposedly granted to him in
the subject DARAB Decision only bolsters the allegation that
he was never a tenant thereto;

b. respondent Romeo U. Delgado, Jr. was never able to enter,


possess, cultivate and enjoy the 4.0 hectare portion of the Subject
Property because there was likewise another tenant, in the
person of _____________, who possessed, cultivated and enjoyed
the same PRIOR TO the interest and knowledge of herein
respondent Romeo U. Delgado, Jr. in the said 4.0 hectare portion
of the Subject Property;

11. That, as far as the 3.5 hectare portion of the Subject Property is
concerned,

11.a. herein tenant-respondent has been caught, on at least two


occasions, to have harvested coconut thereon without paying
rental to herein landholders-complainants, to wit:

11.a.1. last October 19, 2017, tenant-respondent had a gross


income of P10,848.00 and a net income of P8,053.00,
as shown in the computations, a copy of which is
attached hereto as Annex “D” which is made an
integral part hereof;

11.a.2. last December 31, 2017, tenant-respondent had a gross


income of P116,530.00 and a net income of
P12,370.00, as shown in the computations, a copy of
which is attached hereto as Annex “E” which is made
an integral part hereof;

Page | 4
11.b. likewise, herein tenant-respondent failed and/or refused to
execute a written promise despite agreement before the
MARO as contained in the Minutes of Mediation Conference
last 25 May 2017;

11.b.1. a copy of the Minutes of Mediation Conference held


last May 25, 2017 is attached hereto as Annex “F” and
made an integral part hereof;

11.b.2. as already above (item 11.a.), herein tenant-


respondent already harvested coconuts without
executing the written promise, as previously agreed

12. That, because of the foregoing, herein landowners-complainants


cause the incidents to be recorded in the police blotter as evidenced by an Extract
from the Police Blotter Book, a copy of which is attached hereto as Annex “G”
and made an integral part hereof;

PRAYER
WHEREFORE, premises considered, after due notice and hearing, it is
respectfully prayed unto this Honorable Office –

a. ORDER the EJECTMENT of herein tenant-respondent from that portion


of the Subject Property with an area of 3.5 hectares;

b. DIRECT herein tenant-respondent to PAY the rental amount, as may be


determined by this Honorable Office, on the subject 3.5 hectare portion;

c. DECLARE that, henceforth, herein tenant-respondent is WITHOUT ANY


RIGHT TO POSSESS, CULTIVATE AND ENJOY that portion of the Subject
Property with an area of 4.0 hectares by reason of abandonment or,
alternatively, by reason of the fact that there is simply no factual basis
for the same;

Other relief which are just and equitable under the circumstances are
likewise prayed for by herein plaintiff.
