On 2 November 2016, BBM filed a Manifestation informing the PET that he will not be filing any Reply to the Comments and Oppositions filed by protestee Robredo as this will just delay the proceedings further. Instead, BBM asked the PET to immediately resolve these pending incidents on the basis of the pleadings previously submitted by the parties in support of their respective positions.
As of this date, we are waiting for the PET :
• to issue a Retrieval Order [per undertaking # 7 of 21] and
• to issue a Notice of Preliminary Conference [per undertaking # 8 of 21]
