Five years after the April 2012 decision of the Supreme Court ordering the distribution of Hacienda Luisita lands to farmworker-beneficiaries, the lands are still controlled by the Cojuangco family, through its firm Tarlac Development Corporation (Tadeco), Central Azucarera de Tarlac with co-owner Martin Lorenzo and partner firm Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC). This is according to Anakpawis Party-list Representative Ariel “Ka Ayik” Casilao during the commemorative activity of the decision inside Hacienda Luisita.
