MANILA, Philippines?The wife of a former military comptroller has been summoned by a Senate panel to explain the properties she allegedly bought in the United States.

Senator Jose ?Jinggoy? Estrada moved to invite the wife of ex-military comptroller Jacinto Ligot, Erlinda, after the former military officer refused answer questions about his wife during Monday's probe of the Senate blue ribbon committee into the alleged corruption in the military.

?Pag hindi ka sumagot sa akin, mapipilitan akong ipatawag ang misis nyo (If you won?t answer, I will be forced to call in your wife),? Estrada told Ligot.

But Ligot kept mum, prompting the senator to ask the committee to invite Mrs. Ligot in its next hearing.

Before this, Estrada read before the committee documents showing the details of Mrs. Ligot's travel as well as her travels with the wife of former Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff Angelo Reyes, Teresita.

Based on the documents, Estrada said Mrs. Ligot travelled to the United States 42 times from 1993 to 2004 while Mrs. Reyes travelled 48 times during the same period.

Estrada said the two left the country together 13 times but arrived together 11 times.

Aside from her travels, Estrada said, Mrs. Ligot also owned two properties in the United States: one located at the Buena Park, while the other in Anaheim.

Estrada said Mrs. Ligot supposedly bought the property in Buena Park for $183, 000 while the house in Anaheim cost $504, 000.

The former military comptroller also kept mum on these properties.
