Manila, Philippines – Naisampa na sa korte ang kasong kriminal laban sa Nigerian national at dalawang Pilipino sa insidente ng “hacking” sa Banco de Oro (BDO) noong Disyembre.

Dahil sa sarado ilang trial court sa National Capital Region at iba pang lugar dulot ng restriksyon, sinabi ni Assistant State Prosecutor Honey Rose E. Delgado, spokesperson ng Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of the Prosecutor General (OPG) na isinagawa ito via ‘E-filed’ kahapon, Enero 27.

Mahaharap naman ang Nigerian sa kasong paglabag sa Republic Act No. 8484, Access Devices Regulation Act of 2012 na isinampa sa Angeles City regional trial court (RTC).

Kinilala itong si Ifesinachi Fountain Anaekwe alias “Daddy Champ.”

Habang ang dalawang Pilipino naman ay sina Ronelyn Panaligan at Clay Revillosa, na nahaharap sa kasong paglabag sa RA 10175, the Cybercrime Prevention Act ng 2012 sa Pasig City RTC at Quezon City RTC.

Maaalalang naaresto rin sa Pampanga sina Jheron Anthony Taupa at Nigerian national Chukwuemeka Peter Nwadi noong Enero 18.

“Other than his (Nwadi’s) presence during the entrapment operation, no other evidence was adduced by complainants as to his participation on the trafficking of unauthorized access devices. Thus, additional evidence must be presented to determine if there is probable cause for the indictment of Nwadi. Meanwhile, Nwadi will be released from detention,” lahad ng DOJ.

“A Motion for Issuance of Hold Departure Order will be filed against Anaekwe, and a Motion for Issuance of Precautionary Hold Departure Order will be filed against Nwadi.”

Nakasaad naman sa preliminary investigation ng DOJ ang mga sumusunod:

 “According to the NBI-CCD, the tasks of these 5 individuals are compartmentalized – that is, their respective participations are vital, without which, fraudulent transfers or illegal access of online accounts would not be possible. The NBI-CCD explained that the acts are being compartmentalized to prevent the transfers from being traced to a particular person or a syndicate.

“The NBI-CCD likewise equated the modus operandi to money laundering – after hackers have illegally accessed the online banking account or banking system, they would transfer the money to a dummy bank account.

“Thereafter, another transfer would then be made either to another dummy bank account, Gcash or Paymaya account. Money mules are then engaged to personally withdraw or cash-out the stolen money, who would earn by getting commissions from the total amount of withdrawn money. It is only after a series of transfers would the stolen money be moved to the syndicate’s personal accounts.” RNT/FGDC
