DOJ probes another investment ‘scam’ in Mindanao—De LimaBy Tetch Torres
MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Justice said it is investigating another group allegedly involved in investment scam in Mindanao.
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said Friday they are looking at the possible link between Coco Rasuman Group and Aman Futures Philippines, the group implicated in the P12-billion pyramiding scam.
“Yung Aman yung nakitang nag-operate sa Pagadian (City) and nearby provinces. Meron din kaming nakitang group, Rasuman, sa Lanao,” De Lima said in a news conference.
De Lima said Rasuman is the son of a former ranking official of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
She added that Rasuman had been arrested by a soldier because of his alleged involvement in the scam.
De Lima, however, said that the soldier, who might have been one of the victims of the Aman group, had no authority to make the arrest.
