Transfer to another person once property is acquired through expropriation

In the case of Asia Emerging Dragon Corporation vs DOTC, can it be transferred to another person once it
is acquired through expropriation? Can the government transfer it to another private individual or sell it? This
presupposes that there was no specific condition before the taking. It is in simple fee. SO the difference here is the
condition is not followed or disappears then the owner will have the right to recover. But can it be transferred? The SC
said the state through expropriation proceedings may take private property even if admitted it will transfer this
property again to another private party as long as there is public purpose to the taking. So what matters is the
purpose at the time of taking whether it was for a public purpose or public use.
