Money laundering raps filed vs. human trafficking suspects

Complaints for money laundering have been filed against 12 Chinese  who were recently arrested for human trafficking in Clark, Pampanga.

According to a Sam Nielsen's report on Super Radyo dzBB, the suspects will face seven counts for violating Section 4B of Republic Act 9160 or the Anti-Money Laundering Act.

This developed after P187 million worth of cash in several currencies were recovered in a raid at the Clark Sun Valley hub in May.

Victims of human trafficking who were being used to conduct love scams were also rescued during the operation.

According to the Deputy City Prosecutor Darwin Cañete, the charges took time as they needed to process electronic evidence for the charges to stick.

Eight of the suspects have been detained by the PNP Anti-Cybercrime group and four remained at large. —NB, GMA Integrated News
