MANILA, Philippines—Justice Secretary Leila De Lima reiterated Wednesday that Aman Futures Group founder Manuel Amalilio is a Filipino and not a Malaysian, Radyo Inquirer 990AM reported.

Amalilio has a legitimate Philippine passport and birth certificate from the National Statistics Office, De Lima said.

She dismissed rumors that Amalilio is a Malaysian, saying this would not affect pending cases filed against the leader of the P12-billion investment scam.

But De Lima refused to comment on reports that Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman is a relative of Amalilio and was the one who blocked the deportation of Amalilio from Malaysia.

Philippine Ambassador to Malaysia Eduardo Malaya has said that a Malaysian court ordered the imprisonment of Amalilio for two years for carrying a fake Philippine passport.  John Daryl Dimalanta
