Remittance firm officials charged over failure to deliver OFWs’ money

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) filed charges against officers of a remittance company for allegedly failing to remit remittances of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to their respective relatives in the Philippines.

The Office of Deputy Director for Special Investigation Serves (DDSIS) headed by lawyer Victor A. Bessat filed violation of Article 315 of the Revised Penal Code as amended in relation to Presidential Decree 1689 (syndicated estafa) against Josephine O. Alayon, general manager/treasurer of Far East Express Remittance Inc. (FEERI); Adan M. Ubando, chairman/president of FEERI; Jerome Ubando, incorporator; Lalaine Ubando, incorporator, Edwin Ong, incorporator; lawyer Roberto N. Dio, corporate secretary; and lawyer Ma. Pilar M. Pilares Gutierrez, corporate secretary.

The officers, through their counsels, filed their respective counter-affidavit, denying the allegations.

The charges stemmed from the complaint lodged by Adele Garcia, 32, government employee, Kabilugan St., Gulod, Novaliches, Quezona City, and Jovie Sanchez, 33, of Daywan Claver, Surigao del Norte.

Investigation conducted by Special Task Force (STF) under Head Agent Arnel Dalumpines showed that on August 15, 2008, Lea Garcia delos Santos who works as OFW in the United Kingdom went to Barclays Bank and sent remittance in the amount of 1,000 pounds (P86,400) to her brother-complainant Garcia via the account of FEERI/AJ Global Services Ltd. UK. The same was done by Nida Agote Sanchez who sent 1,192 pounds (P100,128) to her sister-in-law Sanchez. However, their relatives never received the money. (Jeamma E. Sabate, TEMPO)
