DOJ issues lookout order for Kapa, ALAMCCO execs
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued an Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order (ILBO) against eight incorporators and eight officers of KAPA Community Ministry International Inc. and three officers of Alabel-Maasim Credit Cooperative (ALAMCCO).
The ILBO covers Kapa incorporators Joel A. Apolinario, Nonita S. Urbano, Junnie G. Apolinario, Nelia V. Nino, Maria Pellea B. Sevilla, Jouelyn A. Del Castillo, Cristobal R. Barabad, and Joji A. Jusay. It also includes Kapa officers are Apolinario, Reyna L. Apolinario, Modie S. Dagala, Benigno D. Tipan Jr., Marnilyn M. Maturan, Ricky A. Taer, Joji A. Tusay and Margie A. Danao.
Meanwhile, the ALAMCCO officers covered by the ILBO are Jerson A. Cagang, chairman; Cynthia A. Gomeri, Corporate Secretary and Ailene D. Mancoa, Chief Finance Officer.
“Immigration officers are directed to monitor within all ports of exit and entry the movement of those covered and verify if a legal basis exists to prevent them from leaving Philippine jurisdiction,” Justice Undersecretary Markk Perete told reporters.
Last Monday, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) raided the Kapa and ALAMCCO offices following the order of President Rodrigo Duterte to initiate a crackdown against operators of various pyramiding schemes.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) flagged down Kapa and ALAMCCO for soliciting investments with an offer of a monthly payout.
A search warrant was issued by the Manila court which became the basis of the raid.
An ILBO is different from a court-issued hold departure order (HDO) since the former only directs the Bureau of Immigration to be on the lookout for the subject and to verify the status of a case against the subject person and not to restrict an individual from leaving the country.
But a person that is the subject an ILBO must seek an Allow Departure Order (ADO) from the DOJ chief itself to be allowed to leave. (Editor: Eden Estopace)
