NBI finds Amalilio’s luxury car

By Macon Ramos-Araneta | May. 11, 2013 at 12:02am
Police investigators tracing the ownership of a P17-million Lamborgghini sports car abandoned in a parking lot in a classy condominium in Mandaluyong City have  discovered that the owner was a fugitive from justice, who duped 15,000 people in a P12 billion scam in Visayas and Mindanao, officials said on Friday.

National Bureau of Investigation Director Caesar Nonnatus Rojas said investigators had obtained documents that the Lamborghini Gallardo 560 Coupe Regalore belonged to Manuel Amalilio, who fled to Malaysia after his double-your-money scam collapsed in November last year.

“The car was imported from Italy and was registered to Amalilio,” Rojas said.

The car was parked at the BSA Tower Condominium by a certain Shaffie Riseabi Shah. When the lease on the parking lot expired, the building owners complained about the abandoned car to the police.

Investigators checked records at the Bureau of Customs and sought information from the local distributor. Vehicle sales invoice and a delivery receipt showed that the car belonged to Amalilio.

Rojas said the NBI had taken custody of the car, which will serve as additional evidence in the case against Amalilio.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said the car was a subject of an intelligence report in March and police were trying to validate the report by tracking down the distributor and where the vehicle was purchased.

“At first they were not cooperating. They said the car has been sold and they have nothing to do with it,” De Lima said.

“When the NBI checked the records at the Bureau of Customs, they discovered the car was still under the name of the distributor. They were summoned to produce the documents,” De Lima said.

Amalilio was set to be deported to the Philippines last year but Malaysian police stopped him at the airport in Kota Kinabalu to serve a two-year prison term for illegal possession of fake Philippine passport.

The Department of Justice has revived a bid to extradite Amalilio to the Philippines to face trial for durping thousands of investors in his Aman Futures Group Philippines, Inc.
