MANILA, Philippines—Justice Secretary Leila De Lima already approved the travel order for the team of prosecutors and state counsels tasked to negotiate with the Malaysian government for the extradition of Aman Futures founder Manuel Amalilio.

“The team will leave mid-March since the Malaysian Attorney-General is not available until then to receive them (the team),” De Lima told reporters Monday.

Included in the travel order is Prosecutor General Claro Arellano, Justice Undersecretary Jose Vicente Salazar and other prosecutors and legal counsels.

Early this month, a team from the justice department left for Malaysia to meet with Federation Malaysia Attorney General Tan Sri Gani Patail to discuss Amalilio’s extradition.

Amalilio was convicted by a Malaysian court and was sentenced to two-year imprisonment for securing a fake Philippine passport.

    This SOB de lima should spell out what are the terms to be negotiated because insofar as the general public is concerned it is a legal question as  Amalilio is a fugitive of the law here and there is some kind of a legal agreement between the countries on how to deal with criminal activities to satisfy the end of justice. Unless this negotiation will also delve on the responsibility of the Regime of the inutile and autistic president in malacannang concerning the problem of the incursion in Sabah of the heirs of the Sultan of Sulu as a quid pro quo in extraditing amalilio.

      Just because it’s not in the news, does not mean it’s not happening. A nobody like you should stop pretending to know more about legal processes than the Justice Secretary.

        Philippine court rejects US extradition request
         August 25th, 2011
        MANILA, Philippines—The Court of Appeals has rejected a US request to extradite a Filipino-American businessman charged with conspiring to kill his wife to collect $300,000 in insurance money in California.
        The appellate court said the United States “failed to sufficiently establish, such strong and convincing evidence” for the Philippines to extradite Abelardo Tasa.

    If only De Lima and the whole DOJ acted immediately after getting tipped that there was this scam existing, then there wouldn’t be this problem to solve. Now the PH has to spend more tax payers’ money just because of the inefficiency of the government.
