Guingona receives Luy’s Digital files from NBI


After receiving a  sealed CD   from National Bureau of Investigation Director Virgilio MendezSen, Sen. Teofisto Guingona III said on Wednesday that Benhur Luy’s digital files could reach  to 31,700-plus pages and occupy a whole room,

The senator considers the files to be the  official ones if ever there are differences from Luy’s files which was published by Inquirer.

“This is the official copy. I don’t think there’s a need to compare,” Guingona, chair of the Senate blue ribbon committee, said when asked about Sen. Jinggoy Estrada’s move to subpoena Luy’s files in Inquirer’s possession.

However, Guingona said this could be done.

Mendez said he could not vouch if the information in the  disk which the Inquirer based its reports came from the  same digital record the NBI gave to the Office of the Ombudsman.

“But the hard copy that was produced out of the hard drive was submitted to the Office of the Ombudsman in compliance with the subpoena given to us since February,” he said.

Mendez added that it was Guingona’s decision  to reveal  the contents of the files. The agency director only complied with the subpoena issued by Guingona’s panel to  submit a copy of the Luy disk.The schedule of the deadline for submitting  of the files was Wednesday.

Guingona made the confirmation. “All I know is that if printed, it will fill a whole room,” he said.

Guingona explained that  the committee would review the files, at the same time,  Napoles’ affidavits, before coming to a decision  when to schedule the hearing on the scam.
