Mr. IWAMOTO
Dear Iwamoto Sacho,
I took the liberty in writing to you directly to clarify matters regarding the
insinuations that Ms. Carolina T. Otsuru and I have not been transparent in dealing
with Arix Japan and have made misrepresentations regarding the present status of
Arix World Manpower Corporation and the pending case of Joneben Ecat which is
still under further proceedings before the POEA Adjudication Office.
From what I gathered from the meetings you and your group had with Ms.
Carolina r. Otsuru last year, Arix Japan wanted to transfer the management of Arix
World Manpower Corporation to another group led by Ms. Elvira Tamayo. On
October 2014, Ms. Elvira Tamayo, Ms. Carolina T. Otsuru, Ms. Rose Hosomi, Mr.
Minoru Hosomi and I met at Marriot Hotel to discuss the mechanics of the transfer
of management of Arix World Manpower Corporation wherein we agreed to
complete the transfer by January 2015. In the afore-said meeting, Ms. Carolina T.
Otsuru informed Ms. Elvira Tamayo of the status of Arix World Manpower
Corporation and its pending case before the POEA.
On November, 2015, I, Ms. Rose Hosomi, Mr. Minoru Hosomi, Atty.
Corpuz and Mr. Christopher Tamayo met at Pan Pacific Hotel to discuss the details
of the transfer of management of Arix World Manpower Corporation. After the said
meeting, I even sent through e-mail the forms to be used for the transfer and
assignment of shares of stocks of Arix World Manpower Corporation to persons to
be named by Arix Japan.
The target date of January 2015 was not met and in the middle of February
2015, Ms. Carolina t. Otsuru wrote you a letter as to how to fairly and equitably
resolve the issue on the transfer of transfer and assignment of shares of stocks of
Arix World Manpower Corporation to persons to be named by Arix Japan. Ms.
Carolina T. Otsuru received your response telling her that the 2M consideration for
the transfer of management of Arix World Manpower Corporation and transfer and
assignment of shares of stocks of Arix World Manpower Corporation to persons to
be named by Arix Japan will be given by the end of February, 2015. Believing your
commitment stated in your letter, I immediately prepared all the documents for the
transfer of management of Arix World Manpower Corporation and transfer and

assignment of shares of stocks of Arix World Manpower Corporation and made


Ms. Carolina T. Otsuru sign the corresponding documents for the initial transfer.
But March 2015 passed and middle of April 2015 passed but the promised 2M
consideration did not arrived. Finally, on the last week of April, 2015, more
particularly on April 29, 2015, the deal pushed through.
Last Monday, May 4, 2015, Ms. Carolina T. Otsuru received a call from the
accountant, Ms. Tess and Atty. Fung (Former Director of the POEA) hired by you
and Ms. Elvira Tamayo insinuating that we did not inform Ms. Elvira Tamayo and
Arix Japan about the pending case before the POEA. We beg to disagree and
strongly deny the malicious insinuations because we are always transparent, fair,
honest and in good faith on our business dealings with everyone. Mr. Minoru
Hosomi has been part of the staff of Arix World Manpower Corporation as
overseer of Arix Japan since 2009 and was well aware of the cancellation of the
license to operate on December 2011 and the subsequent re-instatement of its
license to operate on June 2012 and the remand of the case for further proceedings
to POEA. Ms. Rose Hosomi became a part of the staff of Arix World Manpower
Corporation on 2013 and is involved in the application for the renewal of license to
operate of Arix World Manpower Corporation and its subsequent approval as
representative of Arix Japan.
Setting aside the afore-mentioned circumstances, as a matter of sound and
ideal business practice, due diligence should be observed everytime you transact
business with anyone. Ms. Elvira Tamayo and company has been in the recruitment
business for over a decade and are well aware of the problems that plague the
recruitment industry. Had they not verify, check and validate the records of Arix
World Manpower Corporation from October 2014 to April 2015 to come with the
opinion that we did not disclose that Arix World Manpower Corporation has a
pending case before the POEA. The Memorandum of Agreement was prepared by
the group of Ms. Elvira Tamayo and I edited the same before it was signed and the
deal was concluded at the office of Atty. Fung last April 29, 2015.
We are right now in the process of securing a copy of the Order of the
Department of Labor and Employment dated May 25, 2012 setting aside the POEA
Order dated December 12, 2011 cancelling the license to operate and remanding
the case to the POEA for the conduct of further proceedings and furnish you a copy
of the Order at the soonest possible time. After receiving the copy of the Order of
the Department of Labor and Employment dated May 25, 2012 setting aside the
POEA Order dated December 12, 2011, we shall again write to you on the status of
POEA Case No. RV 07-08-1283 entitled Joneben Ecat vs. Arix World
Manpower Corporation.
