MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Justice (DoJ) issued another lookout order for two more officials of Aman Futures Group Philippines Inc., which allegedly amassed an estimated P12 billion in a Ponzi scheme that victimized thousands of Filipinos.

In a Very Urgent Memorandum dated November 20, De Lima instructed the Bureau of Immigration to include on its watch list Atty. Isagani Subol Laluna and Wilante Labrador.

De Lima said any indication that the two were attempting to leave the country should be reported to her, the National Bureau of Investigation and the DoJ’s National Prosecution Service.

“Immigration officers are directed to ensure that they will report all possible ‘hits’ immediately, and sufficiently in advance of the time of boarding or departure of the suspected subjects,” she said in a statement released Wednesday.

Aman Futures has been involved in what is considered to be the county’s biggest Ponzi scheme that victimized over 15,000 people from Visayas and Mindanao, squeezing about P12 billion from them.

Last November 15, the Bureau of Immigration issued a lookout order against Aman officers, including Manuel Amalilio, founder of the Aman Futures Group; Fernando “Nonoy” Luna, Lelian Lim Gan, Eduard L. Lim, William L. Fuentes, Naezelle M. Rodriguez, Lurix Lopez, Prescilla Ann F. Co, Nimfa Luna, Rico Medina, Dhurwin Wenceslao, Reggie Luna, Araceli Pasco, Marilou Caballero,

Shiela Luna Lasaca, Alfredo Aspira, P02 Ariel Real, Ernesto Luna, P03 Rey “Tata” Chang, Edward Amao, Maria Donna Coyme, Araceli Pasco Julian, Darwin Luna, Toto Caballero, Amay Caballero, Eric Lasaca, Judy Amarao, Edna Dalena, Dickens Dalena, Eva Dalena, Isojo K. Casil, Edna Caballero, Patrick V. Ceniza, Diosdado M. Mag-aso, Frederick M. Mag-aso, Leonita Duhaylungsod, Angelo Duhaylungsod, and Roger Tenajeros.

    If only these 15,000 hoodwinked victims of Amalilio’s Ponzi scam can still pool in their same investment to total PHP12 billion and buy the 25% of PNB’s total market capitalization, they could have then own the bank with  three representatives in the PNB’s Board of Directors.
