Francis Leo Marcos is a businessman and was arrested on May 19 by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). He was charged of violating Republic Act 8050, the Revised Optometry Law of 1995.
“May mga nag-file sa kanya ng request for investigative assistance against nga kay Marcos (There are several persons who sought investigative assistance before the NBI against Marcos),” NBI-Cyber Crime Division (NBI-CCD) Chief Victor Lorenzo stated on Tuesday, May 19.
“So nag-open ang NBI ng case, tapos ina-assgin sa Cyber Crime Division (the NBI opened a case then assigned it to the NBI-CCD),”
Marcos was placed under investigation and investigators conducted a background check on him. The investigators found out that the Baguio City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 60 issued on February 14, 2018, an arrest warrant against Marcos and two others namely Hector Sulit and Leonila Avila Vera, on charges of violating the Revised Optometry Law of 1995.
The investigators served the warrant of arrest on Marcos at his home in Quezon City. Marcos will remain detained at the NBI headquarters in Manila until he posts the P20,000 bail set by the Baguio court.
Raffy Tulfo uploaded a video on YouTube with regard to his opinion about Marcos’ issue. Marcos’ supporters defended him saying that he did nothing wrong but to help the people in need.
Raffy mentioned in his video that there are people who are questioning where Marcos got all his money to conducting charity works. “Anong pakialam niyo kung saan galing ang pera niya? Kung siya’y namimigay ng tulong sa mga nangangailangan… So be it. Inggit lang kayo!” Raffy exclaimed.
“On the other hand, meron ding punto kayo. Now, alamin din dapat ng mga kinauukulan, since the NBI is already handling his case, imbestigahan ng NBI kung saan ba talaga galing ang kanyang pera,” he added.
