“We will wait for the Benhur Luy files. I understand it should be submitted by Wednesday, and then we will evaluate what we have, then we will consult the members, then we will make the necessary hearing,” he said.

Guingona described the two affidavits as “thick” but declined to comment on the contents since he has not yet fully read them.

“I presume since we have been waiting for this for so long, that this is it,” Guingona said.

On resuming Senate investigation into the scam, he said that he could not yet set a definite date because they are still waiting for more information and documents that have previously been issued subpoenas.
