Week 23: December 5 – 11, 2016
On 7 December 2016, BBM received a copy of the PET Resolution which granted BBM’s request for PET to direct the COMELEC to furnish him and other interested parties with copies of the Minutes of the Proceedings and/or Transcript of Stenographic Notes taken during the closure / stripping activities conducted in Sta. Rosa Laguna, and the results of the decryption of the SD cards of contingency VCMs which were found to contain data during the said closure / stripping activities.
As of this date, there remain only two (2) major pending motions that require resolution by the PET:
1) the 9 September 2016 Motion to strike out and/or expunge Robredo’s Answer with Counter-Protest for being filed out of time; and
2) the 20 September 2016 Manifestation with Motion to Admit Attached Verification.
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]
