The Philippine Sports Commission has received communication from Mr. EJ Obiena, sent through his lawyer via email, that Mr. Obiena “will no longer participate in the mediation proceedings.”
As mediation requires for the voluntary agreement of both parties for the process to proceed, we inform you that mediation is temporarily on hold.
Despite this development, we maintain our stand that mediation is still the best option to resolve this matter.
Mr. Obiena has submitted his liquidation reports. The PSC’s accounting office and the Commission on Audit shall proceed with their normal post-audit process of checking and verification on submitted liquidation documents.
