MANILA - The brother of Gabby Concepcion who filed a complaint against him for falsification of public documents said Friday he is doing it for their mother and other siblings.

Miguel Concepcion, the fifth of six Concepcion siblings, said he has been trying to reach out to Gabby since November last year but his older brother has yet to respond.

"Kung nakipag-usap lang siya sakin sa umpisa, then we wouldn't even be here. But that’s how it is, I’m just trying to put everything back together. I’m doing this for my mom and my other siblings," Miguel told radio DZMM.

Miguel's counsel explained that a portion of the property of the siblings' mother Maria Lourdes Concepcion Arellano was transferred to Gabby and two other siblings while she was in the United States.

"How could the mother execute a deed of absolute sale if she was not around? Under our notarial law kasi, the one who executed the document should appear personally before the notary public," the lawyer said.

"If you look at the document itself there are a lot of things that would raise questions. In fact the document as we discovered it did not contain signatures of witnesses. It's just the mother, even the supposed buyers’ signatures are not present."

Miguel said their mother was "very hesitant" and "very sad" about the lawsuit.

"I’m doing this for her and for my siblings because she’s still alive, she’s 79 years old and she has to enjoy what she has, what she inherited from her parents," he said.

"I have very little to say about how we can proceed pero ang gusto ko lang talaga is maibalik lang, maayos lang. Baka kasi nakakalimutan niya, we’re a big family, we’re a family of six and hindi lang siya yung anak ng mga magulang ko. Baka nakalimutan lang niya he has to share whatever is ours."
