Court rules in favor of embattled PECO

THE Mandaluyong City Regional Trial Court Branch 209 upheld the petition of the embattled Panay Electric Company (PECO), declaring certain provisions of an upstart power firm franchise as “void and unconstitutional for infringing on PECO’s rights to due process and equal protection of the law,” even lashing out at the Enrique Razon-led outfit MORE Power’s attempt to question the “Court’s jurisdiction over it smacks of bad faith, desperation and deceitfulness.”
