President Rodrigo Duterte has promised to put up housing projects for soldiers and poor families in the Mile Long property
The disputed Mile Long property is owned by the Prieto family who also owns the Philippine Daily Inquirer, which President Rodrigo Duterte has criticized for its supposed negative coverage of his administration
Since President Rodrigo Duterte took over, he has been repeatedly admonishing in public Sunvar's owners, the Prieto and Rufino families. He had been singling out the Prietos, in particular, the owners of the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI). The newspaper has been the subject of Duterte's scathing criticism for supposedly running unfair negative reports about him and his administration.
Ramon Ang, the chief of the country's most diversified conglomerate San Miguel Corporation, is in talks with PDI owners to acquire a majority stake in the daily newspaper.
