William Go: RCBC branch manager forged my signature in $81-M money laundering
William Go, one of the businessmen linked to the $81-million money laundering, claimed on Friday that his signature was forged by Maia Santos-Deguito, the branch manager of the Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. at Jupiter Street where the transaction happened.
Lawyer Ramon Esguerra, legal counsel of Go, held a press conference on Friday, claiming that Dequito confessed to his client, Go, that she opened an unauthorized account under Go’s name in a meeting on February 23 in one of the restaurants in Taguig City.
Esguerra also said that they have sought the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation to show proof that Go’s signatures in the bank documents were forged.
Esguerra added that on behalf of Go, he has filed a motion before the Court of Appeals to lift the freeze order issued against Go’s other accounts.
He also said that Go and Deguito knew each other because the latter used to be a bank manager of the East-West bank where he had an account.
Esguerra also said that Go had no account at the RCBC Jupiter branch where Deguito was the branch manager SFM
