BAGUIO CITY: A local court has stopped members of the Benguet Electric Cooperative (Beneco) Board of Directors (BoD) from favorably acting on the controversial National Electrification Administration Board of Administrators (NEA-BoA) Resolution 2021-047 that endorsed the applicant who garnered the highest score in the final interview to the position of general manager until further orders.

A 72-hour temporary restraining order issued by Executive Judge Maria Ligaya Itliong-Rivera of the city’s Regional Trial Court (RTC), stated, “Upon consideration of the allegations contained in the present motion together with the allegations in the verified complaint in support of the prayer for the issuance of a temporary restraining order and it appearing before the matter could be heard on notice, the plaintiff would suffer grave and irreparable injury, the country hereby ordered defendants Beneco BoD, their employees, agents and other persons acting in their behalf, to cease and desist, for a period of 72 hours only from date hereof, from favorably acting on the NEA-BoA Resolution 2021-47.”
