Ex-Bank Manager Deguito out on bail

Former Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) branch manager Maia Deguito is now out on bail.

Makati Police District Chief Rommel Mitra says, De Guito was released on Thursday morning after she posted bail worth P 6,000.

Deguito was arrested on Wednesday afternoon in a mall in Barangay Poblacion, Makati City on the strength of an arrest warrant issued by Pasay City Judge Eduardo Solangon Jr.

This stems from a perjury charge filed against the former manager of RCBC’s Jupiter branch.

Deguito was linked to an $81-million money laundering scandal which was investigated by the Senate in April this year.

RCBC had claimed Deguito emptied the accounts holding the funds stolen from the Bangladesh Bank before filing a suspicious transaction report (STR).
