Mayor sues Brit for fencing off airstrip
Santa Fe Mayor Jose Esgana yesterday filed a complaint against the British national who was arrested for allegedly building a fence around the airport of the municipality.
Christopher Paul Alexander, 44, is facing charges for usurpation of real rights in property, direct assault to person in authority, and malicious mischief before the Cebu Provincial Prosecutors’ Office.
Mayor Esgana reported to the police Alexander’s fencing of the airport when he was barred by the foreigner entry to the public property.
SPO4 Carlos Condino and PO3 Marino Cajes responded to the request of Esgana where they saw the ongoing fence construction personally managed by Alexander.
The Briton hired four laborers for the fencing and even put an “AIR BANTAYAN” mark on their project.
The foreign national was later brought to the station after failing to provide any documents to prove his ownership of the property.
Alexander according to the police even told the mayor “You are trespassing on my property” in front of the police and the municipal employees.
