1 Illegal Harvest from Land on Fri Jun 24, 2011 1:57 am


Arresto Menor
My eldest auntie and her husband paid for pieces of agricultural land that were formerly owned by my dead grandfather but was foreclosed by a bank as my youngest uncle, who was administrator, was not able to pay for the loans of which these properties were collateral.

My eldest auntie verbally offered to return the land to the family if she was fully reimbursed for the amount she paid. After 6 years of operations handled by her niece, she only got a small portion of the amount. Then she died. Her husband is going to have the land leased to one of the relatives.

However, before the land was leased, the former administrator (who defaulted in the loans) harvested all the crops of the land and kept the money using it for various expenses of the estate. There is some money that is due to be released on Monday.

My auntie's husband wrote the planter's association to stop the release of the money. But they released the money for the last 3 weeks harvest to the former administrator saying that his authorization as administrator for the communal estate was never revoked as evidenced by an authorization that he got from the court. They also said that since they do not know where the proceeds came from, whether it is from the communal land or from the purchased land, they will release it to the one who has the authorization as administrator of the communal estate. However, the harvest was done on the purchased land so I believe it rightfully belongs to my auntie's husband, her heir.

I would like to ask the following:

1. How can my auntie's husband stop the association from releasing the money to the former administrator?

2. How can he get back from the former administrator the money that was already released ?
