Presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte yesterday vowed to press charges against the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Anti-Money Laundering Council that he accused of criminal negligence if proven that the alleged P2.4 billion in his bank accounts is dirty money.
In a press conference at the Port Area, Manila yesterday afternoon, Duterte bared bank certificates from the Bank of the Philippine Islands-Julia Vargas branch in Pasig City to prove that he never once had P211 million like what vice presidential aspirant Sen. Antonio F. Trillanes IV claimed.
In a bank certification of deposit dated May 3, 2016 signed by BPI-Julia Vargas branch business manager Maria Berna Orleans, since March 31, 2014, Duterte’s bank account in the branch only contained P17,816.98.
As of today, Duterte’s camp said due to many deposits made to his bank account, it now has a total balance of P128,829.
In another certificate of deposit also signed on May 3, it stated that Duterte’s dollar account also only had $5,021.70 since March 31, 2014. (Argyll Cyrus B. Geducos)
