MANILA, Philippines — The Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) has confirmed that P550,000 was deposited to the account of Joel Escorial, the alleged gunman in the Percy Lapid slay case, Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said Saturday.

“Dumating ang report ng AMLC, at nilabas din nila yung sinabi ng gunman, ni Escorial (and it stated what the gunman said) very accurate. Andun talaga yung P550,000 na deposit (It included the P550,000 deposit) within a certain amount of days na kanyang sinabi,” Remulla said in a radio  dzBB interview.  


Remulla said the total amount was deposited within a two-week period.


Lapid was ambushed in front of a subdivision in Las Piñas last month.

His death sparked widespread condemnation and a high-profile investigation.

Escorial surrendered and was presented to the media on October 18, but the alleged middleman, Cristito Villamor Palaña was found dead inside the national penitentiary hours after Escorial’s surrender.
