In his letter to the editor of this newspaper, Mr. Jojo Laquian, well-known Sports Consultant of Blacktown City Council complained about Mrs. Emma de Vera, owner of Travel Access which is based in Flushcombe Road in Blacktown. Laquian alleged that de Vera made a booking at Star City for ABS-CBN entertainers who never showed up. The booking was made under the hotel’s guaranteed reservation system.
It turned out that Emma de Vera made another booking at Hotel Sofitel. She claimed that the reservation at Star City was cancelled but hotel records indicate that no such cancellation was made. A demand letter for payment was sent to de Vera. As of press time, no response from de Vera has been received by Mr. Laquian or the hotel.
