AFFIDAVIT

I, RUBEN BORRES GREGORIO of legal age, Filipino, married and a


resident of 258 National Highway, Poblacion, Matalam, North Cotabato,
after having been duly sworn in accordance with law, hereby depose and
state that
1. I personally know the spouses LEBRON S. THOMPSON and APRIL
S. THOMPSON
2. I also personally knew Elpidio Tuscano, as well as his surviving
children, namely Teresita T. Sabido, Juliet D. Tuscano, Editha T.
Aliwa, Crispin T. Tuscano;
3. Sometime in 2006, I brokered the sale of a parcel of land (Lot No.
56-B-8 (LRC), Psd-118436), located at Matalam, Cotabato,
containing an area of 377 square meters, which was then
registered in the name of Elpidio Tuscano under Transfer
Certificate of Title No. T-34781
4. I offered the property to LEBRON S. THOMPSON who agreed to
buy it;
5. However, at that time, Elpidio Tuscano was already dead, but the
title was not yet transferred in the name of their children or heirs;
6. The heirs of Elpidio Tuscano then informed me that they had no
money to pay for the estate tax and other expenses in order to
transfer the title in their names;
7. The heirs of Elpidio Tuscano asked for my help in finding a way to
facilitate the transaction without them having to pay the estate
tax and other additional expenses for the transfer of the title;
8. I suggested to the heirs of Elpidio Tuscano that we instead
transfer the title directly to Elpidio Tuscano to LEBRON S.
THOMPSON that way they would no longer have to pay the estate
tax;
9. However, I also told the heirs of Elpidio Tuscano that we would
have to forge the signatures of their deceased parents and that all
of the heirs would have to agree to do it in order to avoid any
problems with one heir complaining in the future;
10. All of the heirs of Elpidio Tuscano agreed to do it in order to fast-
track the transaction and save money on taxes and other
additional expenses;
11. I thus thereafter forged the signature of Elpidio Tuscano on the
Deed of Absolute Sale which was notarized before Atty. Leonardo
S. Saniel on November 21, 2006;
12. I did not inform LEBRON S. THOMPSON of the forgery, and the
said persons had no knowledge of the same
13. I forged the signature of Elpidio Tuscano and LEONILA DUBRIA
only to help their children and heirs, without any intent of
defrauding any other persons and
14. I am executing this affidavit to support the counter-affidavit to
Jeff Samuel S. Babol and Jelly E. Babol in NPS Doc. No. XII-04-INV-
2015C-00063 for Falsification of Public Documents which is
pending before the Office of the City Prosecuter in Kidapawan
City;

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 27th day of


April 2015 in Kidapawan City, Philippines

RUBEN BORRES GREGORIO


Affiant

SUBSCRIBED AND SWORN to before me this 27th day of April 2015 in
