‘Leo Marcos’ faces string of cases

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Wednesday said it has completed collecting sufficient documentary evidence to charge businessman Leo Marcos for concealment of his true name and violations of the country's Passport Law.

Marcos, also known as Norman Mangusin, will also be charged for violation of Republic Act 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, said NBI Cybercrime Division chief Vicente Lorenzo.

"We will charge him now with (violation of the) Passport Law and concealment of true name. We have completed collecting the documents.

We will also charge him under the Bayanihan Act for the fake news (he made)," Lorenzo told newsmen.

Lorenzo specifically noted Mangusin's claim that nothing is being done especially by the wealthy to help alleviate the poor's plight during the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
