CDC ‘will not tolerate illegal activities’
1. Colorful and Leap Group Company (CLGP), the alleged subject business establishment of the search warrant issued by Judge Hermenegildo Dumlao of the Regional Trial Court Branch 81 in Malolos City, Bulacan, for violation of RA 10364, is not a registered business enterprise of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC).
2. The enforcement of the search warrant against CLGP, led by the PNP Anti Cybercrime Group, was made in the 2.5 hectares sub-leased premises of Sun Valley Clark Hub Corporation (SVCHC), a sub-lessee of Donggwang Clark Corporation II (Donggwang), a CDC registered business enterprise of a 300-hectare mixed use development.
3. The sublease agreement between Donggwang and SVCHC was approved by CDC on 16 January 2019.
4. Accordingly, SVCHC has an approved business activity of “renting out office and business spaces as well as providing residential spaces to residents in the Clark area which includes improving and/or managing the properties and spaces by providing administrative, maintenance and security services to the tenants”, as reflected in its CDC Certificate of Registration and Tax Exemption issued last 21 December 2021.
5. CDC shall await for the official report of the PNP Anti Cybercrime Group and the Bureau of Immigration which shall bring to light additional information such as the names of the rescued victims of the alleged human trafficking and the perpetrators.
6. Meanwhile, CDC shall generate from its Electronic Visa Implementation System for Aliens (e-VISA) database, the list of foreign nationals issued with special visas in favor of SVCHC to aid the PNP Anti Cybercrime Group and the Bureau of Immigration in their respective investigation and eventual prosecution.
7. CDC shall in no way tolerate any illegal activities inside the Clark Freeport Zone and ensures the public that all registered business enterprises in the Zone are compliant with existing laws and regulations.
