U.S. CONGRESS HALTS CONSTRUCTION OF NEW PHILIPPINE EMBASSY AND CENTER IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adocho Chronicles) – The Congress of the United States has filed a complaint against the construction of a new Philippine Embassy and Center in Washington, D.C.

The new construction involves a 46-storey building that will house the Philippine Embassy as well as government and private suites owned or managed by Filipino individuals and organizations.

It resembles the Torre de Manila condominium project which has been the subject of controversy and lawsuits in the Philippines because it was “photobombing” the Dr. Jose Rizal (Philippines’ national hero) monument in Luneta Park.

John Boehner, in one of his last initiatives before he steps down as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, said that the new construction  obliterates not only the skyline of Washington, D.C, but the solemn and historical significance of the Capitol Building. “We must stop the construction,” Boehner said.
