Rasuman relatives sought over scam

By Rey E. Requejo | Feb. 15, 2013 at 12:01am
The National Bureau of Investigation will hunt down the relatives of Jachob Rasuman allegedly involved in his multi-million investment scam who were ordered arrested by Cagayan De Oro court last November.

Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said authorities are ordered to serve the arrest warrants issued against Rasuman’s wife Princess, his father and former Public Works and Highways undersecretary Basher Sr., mother Ema, brothers Basher Jr., Jeremiah and Jerome, and father-in-law Sultan Yahya Jerry Tomawis.

The CDO regional trial court Branch 20 lifted its order suspending the enforcement of the arrest warrant due to the appeal of the accused before the Department of Justice of their indictment.

“Initially the court suspended the implementation of the warrants because of pendency of the MR (motion for reconsideration of resolution approving the syndicated estafa cases) with the DOJ. It (appeal) was promptly denied by the panel of prosecutors so the court reconsidered its earlier order suspending the arrest,” the DOJ chief told reporters.

De Lima said the NBI has created a special team to track down the fugitives.

“I already ordered their immediate arrest since there is no more impediment for their arrest,” she said.

Last Monday, the DOJ asked the Supreme Court to order the transfer to a Manila court of the syndicated estafa cases against Rasuman and the other accused.

In a motion, the special panel of DOJ prosecutors sought the suspension of proceedings at two branches of the CDO RTC where three cases against Rasuman were filed and order the transfer of the trial to Manila RTC.

The DOJ panel cited four grounds in requesting for the change in trial venue.
