Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Tuesday, said the management of Isetann Department Store and Supermarket should explain why it has no business permit for the shopping mall in Recto, Manila.

Moreno disclosed Isetann’s lack of business permit on the sideline of a forum at SM Aura in Taguig City.

The Manila government’s Bureau of Permits informed the mayor that Trans Orient Management Company, the operator of the mall, has no business permit for the year 2019.

Trans Orient, however, had a business permit last year.
