0 213

MULING nahaharap sa hot water ang Philrem Service Corp. matapos ipag-utos ng Department of Justice (DOJ) ang paghahain ng four counts ng money laundering laban sa mga may-ari ng remittance company kaugnay ng $81M Bangladesh Bank cyber heist noong 2016.

Sa 23 pahinang reso­lusyon na may petsang Disyembre 12, 2019, binawi ni Justice Undersecretary Adrian Ferdinand Sugay ang naunang re­solusyon ng DOJ na nag-aabsuwelto kina Salud at Michael ‘Concon’ Bautista.

Ayon sa DOJ, bigo ang Philrem na i-report sa Anti Money Laundering Council (AMLC) ang mga nakapagdududang transaksyon nang nakawin ng mga hacker ang pera ng Bangladesh Central Bank may apat na taon na ang naka-raan.

“Since Philrem is a covered institution under RA 9160, as amen­ded, its officers are and should be charged with full knowledge of the corporation’s legal obligations. Their suspicious transaction report said so little des­pite what the law very clearly required betrays an attempt on the part of the corporation’s responsible officers to conceal, what is, in truth, a very irregular, if not downright illegal, transaction,” ayon sa order.

“Surely, the responsible officer of Philrem owed the public a much more comprehensive, more substantive suspicious transaction report,” diin ng DOJ.
