MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Justice (DOJ) already submitted for resolution the syndicated estafa case filed against officials of Aman Futures involved in the P12-billion Ponzi scheme.

During Thursday’s preliminary investigation, couple Fernando and Nimfa Luna also appeared before the DOJ investigating panel and subscribed to their counter affidavits. They are both Aman Board members and co-respondents of Aman head Manuel Amalilio.

Aside from the two, another co-respondent Aracelli Julian also filed her counter-affidavit.

The Luna couple expressed their intention to become state witness.

Julian, meanwhile, said she was asked by the couple to help in the operations of Aman as a runner for office supplies and distribution of application forms. She said it was an advantage because she does not need to queue to invest.

On September, she said Luna informed her that Aman will close shop for failure to renew business license.

Aman victimized about 15,000 people from the Visayas and Mindanao. Its owner Amalilio already fled to Malaysia.

    I don’t know what’s going to happen to the syndicated estafa case against the officials of Aman Futures when the presumed head, Manuel Amalilio, possibly fled the country and nowhere to be found, and therefore CANNOT BE ARRAIGNED in a criminal court.

    As usual, this case will be weak since the arraigned board members will just point to their head/mastermind in the biggest estafa case allegedly involving P12 Bn from the 15,000 investors in the ponzi scheme.

    It’s even possible that the name manuel amelilio is not genuine and the Interpol would have a hard time apprehending him especially when the escaped culprit could have undergone facial surgery.

    the operation of amman future was not a secrete. it happened i visited in pag. city in barangay kawit last august.during the time of operation nobody wanted to stop the amman. tanong lang where were our authorities, nbi,sec, department of justice,amlac.were they waiting for complaint? maghintay ng complainant bago umaksyon. DOJ WAS VERY BUSY FOR PERSECUTING OF ARROYO SUBRANG POLITIKA.

    Put a case against the leader and contact the Interpol to have him in the most wanted list together with his wife and children.
