I've read here that there is a prescription for falsification and use of public documents (10 years, I think). My question is, can their youngest sister still file falsification charges against him? Can she file a case of falsification against my uncle when it was my grandfather's signature he forged? My grandfather is long dead, by the way; he died the same year, but before the falsification incident. Also, what can we do to make her stop?
To my knowledge, there are no barangay and fiscal complaints filed at that time, nor are there any police blotters when it happened. She's only started using the case against my uncle five years later, when the estate tax payables were piling up.
My mother, the eldest sibling he borrowed money from to pay off the loan, doesn't want to press any charges against him, but she's already suffering from the stress and tension between her two younger siblings. He always borrows money from my mother for these things, and it's already causing her blood pressure problems. We want to avoid aggravating her medical condition.
Thank you in advance.
