THE new lawyers who will handle the usurpation case against Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia on behalf of the late vice governor Gregorio Sanchez Jr. said they would welcome the assistance of lawyer Oliveros Kintanar.

Lawyers Joseph Randi Torregosa, Waldemar Gravador, Myrna Limbaga and Reynato Galeon were recently retained by Sanchez’s daughter.

Torregosa, who will be the lead counsel, said Kintanar could be their “source of information.”

Kintanar was the lead counsel in the case until June 9 when Sanchez’s daughter, Grecylda “Gigi” Sanchez- Zaballero terminated his services, citing “differences in principle.”

Kintanar told Cebu Daily News that he welcomed the idea of being tapped for the case.

In a separate interview, Gigi said she has “full confidence” in her legal team and can relate with them since “they are in my generation.”
