Estafa case vs Aman execs submitted for resolutionBy Tetch Torres
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.
