MANILA, Philippines — Like suspended Bamban Mayor Alice Guo, her sister Shiela also used a different identity when she applied for a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) clearance, an official told a Senate hearing on Wednesday.

An ongoing investigation by  the Senate committee on women into illegal Philippine offshore gaming operators (Pogos) revealed that the suspended mayor has three siblings namely Shiela, Seimen, and Wesley.


Except  for Seimen, all siblings applied for an NBI clearance in 2021,  according to  Atty. Angelito Magno, the agency’s  assistant director for information, communication and technology service.

“Sabay-sabay po silang nag apply (They all applied at the same time),”  Magno said, referring to  Alice, Shiela,  and Wesley.

Another revelation, however, is  that there is another Shiela Guo  in the  NBI records.

“At  meron rin po tayong nahanap  na isa pa pong NBI clearance sa aming files na nagngangalan din pong Shiela  Guo (Leal),” Magno continued.

(We also found another NBI clearance in our files under the name Shiela Guo [Leal])

“Subalit sa ating pagkukumpara ay lumalabas  po  na iba rin ang larawan nito kaysa dun po sa Shiela Guo sa sinasabing  kapatid …” he  added.


(However, when  we compared it,  it appears that the photo  is different from  Shiela Guo, who is supposedly her sibling)

NBI  reported earlier that there was an Alice Guo who obtained a clearance in  2005.

Magno said they were still locating  Shiela, who  had an address on Kalantiaw Street Project 8 in Quezon City.

Citing the similarities in the conflicting NBI records of sisters  Alice and  Shiela, Senator Risa Hontiveros then raised  the possibility  that their brother, Wesley, might  also be using another identity.

But Magno said they were still  checking their data base.

“So far  po kasi yung Shiela pa lang yung nakuha namin. Yung Wesley hinahanap pa lang namin,” he said.

(So far, we have only obtained Shiela’s. We are still looking for Wesley’s.)

The NBI official  later agreed with some lawmakers’ observations that there is already a  “systematic scheme” of identity theft  in the country.

Alice Guo has been at the  center of the probe  for  her  supposed ties to  Pogo firms  in her town in Bamban, Tarlac.
