NBI seeks Interpol help on 2 Indonesians
The National Bureau of Investigation has asked the International Police (Interpol) to issue a “red notice” on two fugitive Indonesian nationals who allegedly fleeced P50 million from the infrastructure unit of San Miguel Corp.
In a report to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, the NBI said it had sought the help of the Interpol for the extradition of Ery Shadik Wahono and Nadiya Stamboel, former business partners of San Miguel Holdings Corp. (SMHC).
Ferdinand Lavin, the NBI deputy director for forensics services, said the bureau had sent a request to Undersecretary Allan Guisihan, head of the Interpol National Central Bureau in Manila, to help them locate and arrest the two Indonesians.
He said a Marikina City Regional Trial Court had already ordered the arrest of Wahono and Stamboel for qualified theft based on a complaint by SMHC.
Wahono, owner of PT Citra Lamtoro Gung Persad (PTCLGP), also faces a separate complaint for estafa lodged by SMHC with the Department of Justice.
In a complaint filed in April, SMHC said Wahono made an unlawful disbursement of P50 million from Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp. (CMMTC), a company they jointly owned which operates the Skyway elevated toll road.
It said Wahono used the money to form a new company, Citra Central Expressway Corp., which then entered into a partnership with SMHC to undertake the Skyway Stage 3 project.
SMHC said the funds were listed as a loan to PTCLGP from CMMTC without its knowledge.
