Accused in Aman Futures scam wants to testify vs Amalilio
MANILA, Philippines – One of the accused in the Aman Futures pyramiding scheme wants to become the State witness against the firm’s founder Manuel Amalilio.
Donna Coyme said Thursday she has already submitted her application to the Witness Protection Program last December.
At the same time, she denied she was involved in the operations of Aman Futures as she reiterated that she is not an official of the company.
“Tutor lang ako ng anak nina Fernando Luna kaya araw-araw ko sila nakikita (I’m just the tutor of the child of Fernando Luna that’s why I see them everyday),” she told reporters.
She said she had knowledge of Aman’s operations but said she will only discuss it in court.
Coyme, together with Amalilio, Fernando R. Luna, Nimfa C. Luna, Lelian Lim Gan, Eduard L. Lim, Wilanie L. Fuentes, Naezelle M. Rodriguez, and Lurix Lopez Dhurwen Duron Wenceslao (also known as Dharwin D. Wenceslao and Dhurwin D. Wenceslao) are facing cases of syndicated estafa.
The Pagadian City court has already issued a warrant for their arrest. Only Amalilio remains at large.
