Judge says case vs Pinoy with fake US$500b gold certificates can proceed

19 September 2019

Morano presented the fake gold certificates he claims to have received from Marcos, to HSBC in Central

A District Court judge has ruled that a Filipino tourist accused of trying to pass off US$500 billion worth of fake gold certificates has a case to answer.

Judge David Dufton made the ruling on Sept 19 as he sent defendant David Morano Jr back into custody.

The case has been adjourned to Sept 23 for the final submissions by both sides.
Morano pleaded not guilty to a charge of “using a false instrument” at the start of his trial on Sept 16.

According to prosecutor Frederic Whitehouse, Morano had claimed that the fake gold certificates were personally given to him by the late President Ferdinand Marcos to help fund his humanitarian projects.
Morano brought the documents to the HSBC headquarters in Central on Oct 29 last year, and presented them to a clerk who called her manager.

Giving evidence during the trial, the manager, Ms So, said the documents included US$500 billion gold certificates issued in Morano’s name by “Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Corp.” on Jun 12, 1983; four HSBC cards bearing his name, and 12 documents certifying he owns the gold certificates.


Morano also presented certifications purportedly from Marcos, the United States and the United Nations, that he was the owner of the gold certificates. – Vir B. Lumicao
