MANILA, Philippines — The widow of Negros Oriental governor Roel Degamo wants answers from the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) as to why the properties of Arnolfo Teves Jr., the alleged mastermind of her husband’s murder, remain operational.

“Right after the Holy Week, gusto ko ma-meet ang AMLC kasi madami akong questions,” said Janice Degamo, over radio dwPM.


(Right after Holy Week, I want to meet the AMLC because I have so many questions.)


Degamo said the golf course and sugar mill owned by Teves were still operational.

“I want answers kasi talo kami dito ‘pag ‘yung flow ng kanilang money continue, eh tapos in a materialistic world like us, saan kami pupulutin niyan? And sana may time ang AMLC para harapin din kami,” Degamo continued.

(I want answers because if the flow of their money continues, and in a materialistic world like ours, where will we go? I hope the AMLC has time to face us.)

Last year, Teves Jr. and his brother Pryde Henry were branded as terrorists, prompting the AMLC to freeze their properties.

Last Thursday, March 21, the Department of Justice announced the arrest of Teves in Dili, the capital of East Timor.

On March 4 last year, Degamo and eight provincial staff members and constituents were killed while 16 others, including three provincial officials, were wounded in a gun attack in the governor’s residence in Pamplona town.
