MANILA (Mabuhay) – The lawyers of Senator Jinggoy Estrada requested that the Sandiganbayan 5th Division issue a subpoena to Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Chair Senator Teofisto “TG” Guingona III.
Estrada’s camp asked that Guingona or Blue Ribbon Oversight Office Management director general Rodolfo Quimbo personally appear before the anti-graft court on August 11, 12, 13, 18, 20, 25, 27 at 8:30 a.m.
The senator’s camp wants the Senate committee which investigated the pork barrel scam to bring the forensic examination report by the National Bureau of Investigation on the external hard drive of whistleblower Benhur Luy, copies of the digital files, and the print-outs of those digital files.
NBI special investigator Dario Sabilano continued his testimony at the 5th division today on Estrada’s bail hearing.
Sabilano was offered by the prosecution as an “expert witness” on the integrity of the computer files in Luy’s hard drive.
Sabilano said he handled more than 70 cases as a computer forensic examiner. These cases include the Mamasapano encounter video and the footage showing the killing of a Batangas journalist.
The defense, however, in its cross-examination of Sabilano, questioned his expertise. (MNS)
