As we were conducting investigations and interrogation into OCT/Protocol 01-4 dated 1764 we discovered that if you step inside a genuine real estate agency in the Philippines and look around you’ll see a wall poster something like the one here. It is issued by the Housing and Urban Development Co-Ordinating Council, HUDCC, warning of dodgy dealers running squatting syndicates.
Squatting syndicates make money by drawing up fake documents then use them to sell land they don’t own to poorer people. It is a money-making scam that victimises both the real land-owner and the unwary purchaser.
Often the supposed original documents were written before World War 2 and are now claimed to be missing or so damaged as to be unreadable and therefore not available for validation by a document examiner or be presented in court.
Some of the names and documents cited in this poster are familiar to those who follow the Tallano gold story.
Indeed, OCT 01-4 is the very first document on the list, just below it is the name of Prince Julian Tallano Group and other connected names.
Here is a closer view of the relevant part of the poster:
In 2002 the Supreme Court of the Philippines nullified a number of bogus land titles including those from theTallano and Acop groups.
Indeed, as recently as June 2017, a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) probe requested by the DAR regarding a case in the Compostella Valley involving the Tallano group found it had no rightful claim. “Based on the investigation conducted by the NBI, the land titles of Tallanos’ group are fakes as verified by the Register of Deeds. We also found out that their leader, Tallano, is included in the list of professional squatters and a member of a squatting syndicate,” said local DAR Sheriff Adelaido Caminade. Read more here
Does this prove that OCT 01-4 is fraudulent? Not necessarily. Only a study by a historian familiar with the period together with a thorough forensic examination of the original and textual analysis can do that. What we do know about the original ‘1764’ document is that it was barely readable which brings into question the accuracy of the translated text. Since that is the text presented by the proponents, that is what we have left to examine. It is a 01-4curious oversight by the Tallanos and, indeed, the courts, that this has not been done.
Before we continue the interrogation of OCT, however, There are certain consistent themes that appear in the Tallano claim:
A King of Liusong/King Luisong
The term Hacienda Filipina
A Kingdom and tribe called Maharlika which comprised the whole of Luzon.
Let’s look at those next.
