NBI to sue Leo Marcos for identity concealment, passport breach
“We will charge him now with (violation of the) Passport Law and concealment of true name. We have completed collecting the documents. We will also charge him under the Bayanihan Act for the fake news (he made),” Lorenzo told newsmen.
Lorenzo specifically noted Mangusin’s claim that nothing is being done especially by the wealthy to help alleviate the poor’s plight during the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
The details in connection with Mangusin’s two passports have been sent to the NBI by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Lorenzo said.
“We are also interested in what supporting documents he used in obtaining the passport under the name Francis Leo Marcos,” the NBI said.
The self-styled philanthropist became an online sensation for supposedly making big donations to those affected by the health crisis.
Mangusin was arrested last week after a Baguio court issued a warrant of arrest against him for violation of Republic Act 8050 or the Optometry Law for unauthorized distribution of eyeglasses. (PNA)
