xxx.

30. Q Why do you say that the said three (3) deeds of sale (c. 1974, 1977, and 1979) were void and
simulated?

A - The reasons are as follows based on our family records:

a. The alleged signature of Luz Vda De Xxx on the alleged Deed of Absolute Sale, dated XXX, 1974
was not the true signature of Luz Xxx Vda De Xxx.

Thus, the alleged signature of Luz Xxx Vda De Xxx was a forgery.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack of
consent.

b. Moreover, the alleged consideration of Pxxx for the sale of the 1/3 share of Luz Xxx Vda De Xxx
on the parcel of land under TCT No. xxx was not paid by Gregoria Xxx Xxx.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is rendered NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack
of consideration.

c. The alleged signature of Jose Manuel Xxx on the alleged Deed of Absolute Sale, dated xxx,
1979 IS NOT the signature of Jose Manuel Xxx.

Thus, the said alleged signature of Jose Manuel Xxx was a forgery.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack of
consent.

d. Further, the alleged consideration of Pxxx for the sale of the 1/3 share of JoseManuel Xxx in the
land covered by TCT No. xxx was not paid by Gregoria Xxx Xxx.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is rendered NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack
of consideration.

e. The signature of Josefina Xxx on the Deed of Absolute Sale, dated xxx, 1977 WAS NOT
VOLUNTARILY AFFIXED by her as she was INFLUENCED (and was not in a position to decline)
to sign the same by her aunt Gregoria Xxx.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack of
consent.

f. Moreover, the alleged consideration of Pxxx for the sale of the 1/3 share of Josefina Xxx on the
parcel of land under TCT No. xxx was not paid by Gregoria Xxx Xxx.

The said Deed of Absolute Sale is rendered NULL and VOID ab initio and INEFFECTIVE for lack
of consideration.

31. Q What happened next?

A Based on the aforecited three (3) Deeds of Absolute Sale,


TCT No. xxx was issued in the name of Gregoria Xxx
Xxx by the Registry of Deeds of the Province of Rizal on
December 9, 1980.

Subsequently, the TCT No. M-xxx was issued on xxx, 1981 by the Registry of Deeds of the
Province of Rizal in the name of the defendant Leonora Xxx, a niece of Gregoria Xxx Xxx, based
on a deed of sale executed by Gregoria Xxx Xxx in favor of the defendant Xxx on xxx, 1979.
It was annotated at the back of TCT No. xxx on xxx, 1981 as Entry No. xxx.

32. Q - Why are you running after the defendant Xxx for
the subject property?

A We, the plaintiffs, are running after the defendant Xxx in


this case because the legal defects in the title of Gregoria
Xxx Xxx under TCT No. xxx were transferred
to the defendant Xxx as the transferee of Gregoria
Xxx Xxx.

We believe that the parcel of land covered


by TCT No. xxx still belongs to Luz Xxx Vda De

46. Q Anything else?

I hereby introduce the following additional exhibits to prove the forgery, lack of consideration,
and lack of consent of Luz Xxx Vda. De Xxx, Jose Manuel Xxx, and Josefina O. Xxx regarding the
void and simulated 1974, 1977 and 1979 deeds of sale that they executed in favor of Gregoria Xxx,
to wit:

a) Exh. YY Kasulatan Ng Sanglaan Ng Labing Dalawang (12) Puno Ng Mangga, dated xxx
1964, executed by Luz Xxx.
It shows the true signature of Luz Xxx.

b) Exh. ZZ Kasulatan Ng Sanglaan, dated xxx 1960, executed by Luz Xxx.

It shows the true signature of Luz Xxx.

c) Exh. AAA Signature of Jose Manuel Xxx on his Catholic Cursillo prayer guide called Gabay
Ng Manglalakbay, c. 1980s.

d) As to the signature of Josefina O. Xxx in the questioned 1977 deed of sale, the same was true, but
she signed it under the influence of Gregoria Xxx and without any consideration.

At that time, she had just recovered from a 6-month coma at the intensive care unit of the old xxx
Hospital, xxx City, after a serious head injury caused by a vehicular accident.

47. Q- Anything else?

A - Yes.

I hereby adopt into this judicial affidavit, by incorporation and reference, all the allegations and
arguments contained in our Complaint and all the supporting documents annexed thereto, the
same to form part and parcel hereof.

48. Q - Anything else?

A Yes.

I hereby manifest that during the main trial of the merits of this case, we, the plaintiffs, intend to
file amotion for questioned document and handwriting examination by the National Bureau of
Investigation (NBI) of all questioned documents and signatures involved in this case, as discussed
above.

I further manifest that, during the trial on the merits of this case, we intend to present
additional corroborating witnesses to prove our claims and prayers in the Complaint.

49. Q Why did it take you and your co-plaintiffs more than 30 years before you filed a case in court
against the defendant Xxx to assert your rights in the subject property?

A We did not have the financial resources and the clout to launch a legal fight
against the rich and influential Xxx Family to recover the subject property.

When we sold our rights and interest in the subject property to Xxx Resort, Inc.
three (3) years ago that was the only time we acquired the necessary resources and
courage to commence this action with the support.

Furthermore, the said delay should not be taken against us.

We believe that a void and simulated contract, as in this case, is invalid ab initio and
that the action to nullify it is imprescriptible under the Civil Code and existing
jurisprudence, hence, as far as we are concerned, the defense of laches is
inapplicable.

Nothing Follows.
