MANILA, Philippines -- The Department of Justice (DoJ) has summoned the daughter of Court Appeals Justice Jose Sabio and the woman allegedly asked by a businessman to help convince Sabio to accept a bribe offer to appear before its investigation into a bribery row at the appellate court.

"Your failure to appear will be dealt with in accordance with law," the DoJ panel chaired by Undersecretary Ernesto Pineda, warned Evelyn Clavano and lawyer Sylvia Jo Guiltiano Sabio.

Both are required to appear before the panel on the morning of September 19.

The DoJ is already investigating Sabio?s allegation that businessman Francis de Borja, acting as an ?emissary? of the Manila Electric Co., offered him a bribe to decide for the power utility in a case against the Government Service Insurance System.

An earlier investigation into the scandal by a panel of retired justices created by the Supreme Court led to the dismissal of appeals court Justice Vicente Roxas and Sabio?s suspension for two months.

The DOJ panel is already investigating the allegations of bribery of Justice Sabio against businessman Francis De Borja.

Sabio has affirmed his affidavit against De Borja as well as his response to the the businessman?s affidavit and the transcripts of the investigation of the Supreme Court panel.
