Instant millionaire in 2014, One of two clerks at the Office of the DOJ chief Edna “Bogs” Obuyes who was interrogated by National Bureau of Investigation.
This is one of the puzzles that the DOJ is resolving in its ongoing fact-finding investigation on the alleged involvement of then DOJ Sec. and now Senator Leila de Lima in illegal drug trade in New Bilibid Prison.
According to the document obtained by THE STAR from DOJ, a total of P24 million in cash was deposited in a bank account under the name of Bogs C. Obuyes in March and April 2014.
“Cash deposit slips showed that the alleged deposits were made on March 7, 2014 (P4.8 million), March 21, 2014 (P7.2 million), April 4, 2014 (P2.6 million), April 18, 2014 (P4.8 million) and April 24, 2014 (P4.6 million).” According to Philippine STAR report.
The Bank representatives said the bank accounts is under the bank secrecy law.
Probers said the bank records being subjected to verification were “shocking” since Obuyes was a clerk “whose salary could not have reached such enormous amounts.”
