Claim: BENECO camps agree to resolve differences
This article, published by the Manila Bulletin, claims that with the intervention of the “Sangguniang Panlungsod of Benguet” the two camps in the BENECO leadership standoff have agreed to settle their differences.
This is false.
The actual agreement reached was an agreement to settle BENECO’s unpaid dues to TeaM Energy, the power supplier that BENECO acquires power from. Also, it was the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Baguio that mediated.
There is yet to be a resolution regarding the leadership matter of BENECO’s General Manager seat.
Neither did the Baguio council initiate interventions as said in the article – BENECO’s GM Licoben and BOD reached out to the Baguio City Council for an intervention.
To date, there is no resolution to the leadership standoff.
Also, a government writer complained in a now-deleted post that the writer actually copied his press release and then changed the lead to make it appear that the two warring camps buried the hatchet.
