Pinoy flies home after court drops case

23 December 2018

Lai Chi Kok Detention Centre

A Filipino who claims to be a businessman has returned to Manila after the prosecution withdrew a case of money laundering filed against him for an allegedly suspicious transaction in his bank account.

Armando Seguis was released on Nov 30 from Lai Chi Kok Detention Centre and was immediately escorted to the Hong Kong Hong Kong International Airport for his flight home on the same evening, according to an officer of the Consulate.

Seguis had been held at Lai Chi Kok since his arrest in September after a huge amount of money was allegedly deposited in his local bank account, then withdrawn on the same day.

The prosecutor gave no reason for withdrawing the charge.

He was charged with one count of “dealing with property known or believed to represent proceeds of indictable offence”, a euphemism for money laundering.

Magistrate Daniel Tang ordered Seguis released after prosecution dropped the case.

However, as soon as he obtained a clearance from the court and the Correctional Services Department on the same day, Seguis was put on a flight back to Manila.
