More News from Karen Boncocan
MANILA, Philippines – Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) executive director Vicente Aquino maintained on Tuesday that they did not inquire into the bank records of ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Aquino said the records were “electronically transmitted to us. We did not inquire into (his) records.”
“There was no examination,” he stressed, saying that banks automatically send transaction records to the AMLC.
“There is no need to authenticate, these are public records,” Aquino added, referring to a 17-page report that the AMLC had provided to Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales.
The report was used by the Ombudsman as basis in her testimony during the impeachment trial that Corona had at least $12 million and 82 dollar bank accounts.
