Isko orders closure of Isetann Recto
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.
