The petitions, which were filed at 9.15am, are expected to be served to the respective parties earliest by late Monday or Tuesday (June 19).

Loretto said these eight petitions were filed based on their confidence in the cases.

"We won't be filing if we did not have enough evidence to back these up, but we will leave the rest to the lawyers to handle," he said.

Eight teams of lawyers, one for each case file has been appointed.
