Jamby wants NBI to examine late aunt’s will

() - May 27, 2008 - 12:00am

Sen. Ma. Ana Consuelo “Jamby” Madrigal wants the National Bureau Investigation (NBI) to determine whether the signature of her late aunt Consuelo “Chito” Madrigal in her last will and testament was forged.

In a motion filed before the Makati Regional Trial Court, Madrigal said handwriting experts should be allowed to study all documents related to the petition for probate filed by the Madrigal matriarch’s supposed beneficiaries.

Madrigal said the NBI’s Questioned Documents Division (QDD) should be allowed to examine her aunt’s signature in her will and compare it to her other signatures  in other documents.

Madrigal, through her lawyer Ernesto Francisco Jr., also asked Judge Oscar Pimentel to allow the NBI handwriting experts to analyze her aunt’s signatures in various encashed personal checks.

The court should declare her aunt’s will void because of “numerous serious irregularities,” including allegedly falsified signatures, Madrigal said. – Michael Punongbayan
