During Assessor's Meeting September 13th, 2013 Assessor states on Video Majority of Property is Rodulfo Figuron's

Myrna Figuron was warned ahead of time that Welia Alipayo might try to take Rodulfo's land with the help of Nestor Reyes so the Figurons made sure to video tape the meeting held by the tax assessors from both Surigao City and General Luna.

Surigao City Tax Assessor Confirms Welia Alipayo Should Only Receive 1041 sqm

In Welia's own sworn testimony of her Complaint she states she accepted a compromise settlement. However, as defined by the surveyors and tax assessors present that day, the compromise was for a total of 1041 square meters to be transferred to Welia Alipayo, the rest of lot 2943-A still belonged to Rodulfo Figuron.

Welia Alipayo conveniently excludes the single most important fact of the settlement: the size of property she was going to receive was only 1041 square meters not the entire lot 2943-A.

In the video below Surigao City Tax Assessor Walter Andit explains that Welia Alipayo should receive 1041 square meters. At the very beginning of the video you can hear General Luna Tax Assessor Nestor Reyes say "1000", meaning only 1000 square meters.

 

Tax Assessor States Welia Alipayo Agrees To 1041 Square Meters

Near the end of the first meeting Surigao City Tax Assessor Walter Andit says that about 80% of the parties have agreed including Welia Alipayo, Rodulfo Figuron and Tia Dolores. Rodulfo needs to go home, discuss things with his children and if they agree, in the morning the papers will be signed and they will "immediately put a huge fence in between" and will be processed by the assessor.

 

Tax Assessor: If Rodulfo Agrees He Will Automatically Receive Tax Declaration And Title, But If He Does Not Sign There Will Be "Very Big Problems"

Many times during and after the meeting the tax assessors kept telling the children of Rodulfo Figuron that if he did not sign there would be "Grave dako problemas" or "very big problems".

It was repeated over and over: "If you sign, automatic tax dec and title, if you do not sign, sus! grave dako problema! Grave dako problema!"

Translated to English: "Then Tay automatic your tax dec, title, agreements will all be changed in accordance to this actual new area. This will be a big event tomorrow. However, if there is no agreement tomorrow, frankly speaking your problems will be bigger because we will go home. We have everyone here, the assessors and they (Welia) are also having their adverse claim, so it will be a very huge problem, scared us all."
