MANILA, Philippines – Malaysian authorities prevented Aman Futures Group head Manuel Amalilio from leaving Malaysia, National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Director Nonnatus Rojas told reporters Friday.

“For unknown reasons, pinigil sya ng Malaysian police. Lahat ng papers, lahat ng magpapatunay na sya ay Pilipino dala ng mga NBI officers natin,” Rojas said.

Rojas said Amalilio was turned over to the NBI.
