Two politicians among signatories of checks worth ₱27-M recovered from Maute

On Monday, the Philippine Marines recovered P52.5 million cash and P27 million checks after the clearing operations in a house previously controlled by Maute group.


According to Davao Breaking News, two former Lanao del Sur Mayors are involved. It is said that the checks recovered were signed by these mayors.

The names of the mayors were not still verified. But their sources identified the two politicians signed the million worth of checks.

It is said that the ₱52.2 million in cash and P27 million-worth of stale checks were found inside a vault during a house-to-house clearing operation near Mapandi bridge.

Many speculations said that the Maute terrorist group are supported by influential people in Mindanao.

It is also now clear that the group was funded by certain people to be operated.

President Rodrigo Duterte claimed on Friday that illegal drug trade fuels local terrorist groups’ activities in Mindanao.

“Hinayaan kasi natin ang droga . So there was a time and until now that the terrorist activities in the Philippines is funded and fueled by drug money,” Duterte said.

If the two politicians have proven that they conspired with the terrorist group and financed their operations against the government forces, they can be charged for violating the REPUBLIC ACT NO. 10168 also known as “The Terrorism and Financing Prevention and Suppression Act of 2012”

According to the law, any person “who, directly or indirectly, willfully and without lawful excuse, possesses, provides, collects or uses property or funds or makes available property, funds or financial service or other related services, by any means, with the unlawful and willful intention that they should be used or with the knowledge that they are to be used, in full or in part: (a) to carry out or facilitate the commission of any terrorist act; (b) by a terrorist organization, association or group; or (c) by an individual terrorist, shall be guilty of the crime of financing of terrorism and shall suffer the penalty of reclusion temporal in its maximum period to reclusion perpetua and a fine of not less than Five hundred thousand pesos (Php500,000.00) nor more than One million pesos (Php1,000,000.00).”

“Any person who organizes or directs others to commit financing of terrorism under the immediately preceding paragraph shall likewise be guilty of an offense and shall suffer the same penalty as herein prescribed.”
