 MANILA, Philippines – Inihayag ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III na tapos na ang imbestigasyon ng National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) sa nangyaring pamamaril at pagkamatay ng Taiwanese fisherman sa Balintang Channel sa Batanes noong nakaraang linggo.

Sinabi ni Pangulong Aquino na kulang na lamang ang physical investigation sa sangkot na Taiwanese fishing vessel.

Sa ngayon ay hinihintay na lamang ang final report ng NBI bago ang susunod na hakbang.

Samantala, bukas umano si Pangulong Aquino na bumalangkas ng fisheries agreement sa Taiwan at iba pang karatig-bansa.

Ngunit nilinaw nito na mag-uumpisa lamang ang pag-uusap kapag naresolba na ang isyu sa napatay na Taiwanese fisherman.

Nagpasalamat naman ang Pangulo sa panawagan ng mga opisyal ng Taiwan na maging mahinahon at huwag nang idamay pa ang mga Pilipino doon.

“Ang balita natin naglabas ang prime minister ng Taiwan tsaka yung kanilang ministry of foreign minister na dapat hindi mamaltrato ang ating mga kababayan dun at nagkakaroon ng kaukulang parusa ang sinomang mapatunayan na magmamaltrato sa ating mga kababayan, nagpapasalamat tayo doon,” pahayag ni Pangulong Aquino. (Nel Maribojoc & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) operatives raid a Kapa office following reports of involvement in investment scams

MANILA, Philippines – The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is preparing the charges to be filed against the executives of the religious organization Kapa Community Ministry International, the group allegedly behind the largest investment scams in the country.

“We are preparing the appropriate complaint against the founder and other officers of Kapa,” said Atty. Antonio Pagatpat, NBI’s Deputy Director for Operations Service.

Those involved in the said investment scam may face charges for large-scale estafa.

The NBI has raided 14 Kapa offices through search warrants issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 20 for violating Sections 8 and 26 of the Securities Corporation Code of the Philippines.

The offices were located in Taytay, Rizal; San Geronimo in Bagbag, Nueva Viscaya; in Compostella Valley and in Cebu.

The agency also raided the house of the group’s founder, Joel Apolinario in Saranggani province.

The NBI said they have not arrested any member of the group but they have confiscated several documents, records, books and equipment.

“Wala tayong na-arrest dahil (No arrests have been made yet because) when our teams reached all offices of Kapa, they were already non-operational, closed. But we were able to seize some vital evidence,” Pagatpat said.

NBI agents were also able to recover cash amounting to P2.2 million and P300,000 from two different Kapa offices.

Based on the NBI’s initial investigation, the leaders of the controversial group were allegedly collecting donations amounting to P5,000 under 30% interest rate per member.

For its part, the group assured to cooperate with the investigation of authorities regarding the controversy. (with reports from April Cenedoza)

by Aileen Cerrudo   |   Posted on Monday, June 10th, 2019

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has begun investigation into alleged ‘ghost claims’ at the WellMed Dialysis Center in Quezon City.

Several officials of WellMed Dialysis Center, including their lawyers went to the NBI office on Monday (June 10) to explain their side of the issue.

This was after receiving a subpoena for the alleged ‘ghost claims’ at the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).

Rowell Ilagan, one of the owner’s lawyers, said that the whistle blowers Edwin Roberto and Liezel Santos were the ones doing the anomalies.

“Nag-send out kami ng demand letters (We sent out demand letters) January of 2019 requiring them to explain the irregularities that we found out, and because of this siguro natakot na marami kaming demand letters, kaya siguro binaligtad nila iyong kwento, (maybe they got scared so they flipped the story),” he said.

However, Roberto and Santos both denied Ilagan’s claims. WellMed’s camp is also prepared to file charges against the two.

Meanwhile, the NBI has already arrested one of the owners, Bryan Sy, for estafa, falsification of documents and violation of PhilHealth laws.(with reports from April Cenedoza)
