RCBC files criminal charges vs. 2 ex-employees over money laundering controversy
It doesn’t look like this mess will get sorted out anytime soon.
“Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) on Wednesday filed criminal charges against former Jupiter branch manager Maia Santos-Deguito and former senior customer relationship officer Angela Torres, both tagged in the $81-million money laundering controversy,” reports Michelle Ong on ABS-CBNnews.com.
The report noted: “Charges of falsification of commercial documents with respect to the William Go accounts were filed against Deguito and Torres at the City Prosecutors Office in Makati.”
RCBC legal and regulatory group head Atty. Macel Estavillo revealed that they are also investigating the involvement of another RCBC employee, who at one point also worked at the Jupiter branch.
The said employee has supposedly submitted his resignation, but the company has not acted on it yet. In previous Senate hearings, the employee’s name was already brought up, as he was allegedly the one who arranged a meeting between Deguito and other branch employees where money was allegedly offered to help in the cover-up.
