DoJ dismisses Okada LED case


The Department of Justice (DoJ) has affirmed the resolution of the city prosecutor of Parañaque which dismissed the complaint of Tiger Resort, Leisure and Entertainment Inc. against Kazuo Okada, Kengo Takeda, Tetsuya Yokota and Aruze Philippines Manufacturing for lack of probable cause.

In a 10-page resolution signed by Assistant State Prosecutor Alejandro Daguiso, the DoJ denied the motion to vacate filed by the entertainment firm alleging a breach of supply agreement worth P210 million.

The case stemmed from the light emitting diode (LED) project entered into by Tiger Resort, Leisure and Entertainment, Inc. with the respondents aimed at lighting up the façade of Okada Manila.

The Aruze LED installation did not satisfy the complainant, thus the case.

“While this case appears to be a business decision gone wrong due to the lack of any due diligence on the part of complainant, the latter is not precluded from going to court on the basis of civil liability for possible damages arising from the supply agreement and its implementation, as well as from issues related to the installation process and the subsequent maintenance of the LED strips,” read the DoJ resolution.
