Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso ordered the closure of Isetann Recto Mall on Wednesday after it was found to be operating this year without a business permit.

According to the Manila Public Information Office, it was ordered closed after it was found violating the city ordinances and misrepresenting applications for permits.

Isetann Cinema Complex includes a department store, supermarket, four cinemas, parking lot, multiple leased out stalls and spaces.  It is operated by Tri-Union Properties Inc. which was found lacking the necessary business permit.

The Recto mall was closed due to “misrepresentation of actual business area” and “questionable number of employees,” according to a memorandum from the city’s Bureau of Permits.

Isetann’s 4 movie theaters are managed by Cineworld Cinerama Inc, which holds a permit for only one cinema, it said.

Property management functions and services for Isetann Cinerama Complex are performed by Trans-Orient Management Services Inc that “does not have a valid and existing business permit,” it said.
