2 more pyramid scam suspects placed on watch listBy Tetch Torres
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.
