One of two clerks at the office of the Department of Justice (DOJ) chief who was interrogated by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) named Edna “Bogs” Obuyes appeared to have become an instant millionaire in 2014.
Philstar reported that they obtained this document from the DOJ source that showed a total of P24 million in cash deposited in a bank account under the name of Bogs C. Obuyes in March and April 2014.
These 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).
The bank representatives refused to comment, citing confidentiality of accounts under the bank secrecy law.
Obuyes is no longer with the DOJ as she was a contractual employee whose contract had expired.
It was earlier reported that Obuyes and another clerk, Jong Caranto, had prepared affidavits claiming that they were told by De Lima to deposit millions of pesos to a bank account that wasn’t under her name.
Meanwhile, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre III hinted that probers have traced several bank accounts where alleged drug money went, but quickly clarified that these were not under the name of De Lima.
