Boracay businesswoman denies fraud allegation

A businesswoman, who claims to own real estate properties in the island resort of Boracay in Aklan, has recently came out with a statement on Tuesday clearing her involvement in an alleged fraud involving four foreign expatriates and a Filipino lawyer.

In a statement provided to the Manila Bulletin on November 23, 2010, Dolora “Dolly” Khanna, through her legal counsels, denied accusations thrown against her by Canadians Peter Eckart and Peter Tayler, American couple Spencer and Evelyn Anderson, and Filipino lawyer Lucas Licerio, linking her to an alleged fraudulent transaction involving real estate properties at the Boracay Luxury Homes.

“Mrs. Khanna owns thousands of square meters of Lot 593 by virtue of a series of Deeds and Absolute Sale executed between Atty. Licerio, in his capacity as her and attorney-in-fact of the other remaining heirs, as seller and Mrs. Khanna as buyer,” said the statement provided by Khanna’s legal counsel.

“As owner thereof, Mrs. Khanna has the right to dispose them.”

In a previous story, it was reported that an estafa case was filed by the foreign expatriates and Licerio, alleging Khanna to have sold the properties to the foreigners after claiming ownership of the lots, which were allegedly owned by Licerio.

“After buying the Boracay properties from Atty. Licerio in 2007, Mrs. Khanna, developed the properties, designed and constructed homes and other improvements therein, and marketed them at her sole expense,” Khanna’s cam said.

“The project was referred to as the ‘Cliff Project,’ where the Anderson spouses, Spencer and Evelyn, having fully paid for their homes, was issued a Deed of Absolute Sale. Since then, possession of their homes has been entirely turned over to them.”

The said statement also shed light on the allegations against Khanna concerning her status as a businesswoman in the Philippines and in the United States.

“Mrs. Khanna is a reputable business woman with multiple successful businesses in the United States. She recently returned to the country… and decided to acquire dual citizenship and invest in Boracay as a sign of her confidence to the Philippines,” the statement clarified.


  1. I'm ecstatic to see that my mother's innocence has been brought to light. The people who had posted false accusations against my mother will all suffer the consequences that they all deserve. My mother is a very powerful women in the Philippines and ALL these people going against her suffer from a bad case of jealousy. It's funny how you all tried to claim my mother's hard work as your own opening a real-estate office in Balabog. As her daughter i can inform you that my mother was a informant for the United states FBI. She was never imprisoned as these people are claiming. My mother has always worked hard for everything she has been blessed with. She has the biggest heart helping all those in need with open arms. Justice will be served once all of this is settled and these liars are all deported. And just a note for Gigi Piit my mother helped you in so many ways, as a friend and business partner and you turned around back stabbed her. You brought so much negativity into my mothers life and im so glad you are no longer apart of her life. Does it feel good to be broke?? Can't barrow money from anyone anymore can you?!! She will see all of you in court.

  2. HE who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. For I hear the slander of many, there is terror on their side. They conspire against me and plot to take my life..Let the wicked be put to shame, and lie silent in the grave. Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous. Strike them with terror, O Lord, let the nations know they are evil. Let death take my enemies by surprise; Let them go down alive to the grave, for evil finds lodging among them. Charge them with crime upon crime; Do not let them share in your salvation. May they be blotted out of the book of life and not be listed with the righteous. -Psalm 69; 27-28
