PNB vs Pabalan; G.R. No. L-33112; 15 Jun 1978; 83 SCRA 595

Petitioner PNB filed for certiorari and prohibition against respondent judge who issued a writ of execution and a notice of garnishment of the funds of respondent Philippine Virginia Tobacco Administration.

Whether or not petitioner can invoke the doctrine of State immunity from suits and the funds may not be garnished.

NO. It is well-settled that when the government enters into commercial business, it abandons its sovereign capacity and is treated like any other corporation.
