More charged in scam
MANILA, Philippines—A Cagayan de Oro City court on Friday issued warrants of arrest for the wife, father and other relatives of alleged investment scam leader Jachob “Coco” Rasuman following the filing of two new syndicated estafa complaints by the Department of Justice (DOJ) with the court.
The warrants, copies of which were forwarded to the DOJ in Manila by Cagayan de Oro Regional Trial Court Branch 23 presided over by Judge Vincent Rosales, pertained to separate complaints filed by two businessmen who claimed they lost almost P20 million to Rasuman’s investment scam.
The first arrest warrant covers Rasuman’s wife Princess Tomawis Rasuman, brother Basher Rasuman Jr., father Basher Rasuman Sr., mother Ema Rasuman and father-in-law Sultan Yahya Jerry Tomawis.
The second covers the same suspects except for Ema Rasuman but includes Rasuman’s two brothers, Maning Rasuman, vice mayor of Tamparan town in Lanao del Sur, and Jerome Rasuman.
