Former official (FO) is losing sleep over the millions he lost to EastWest Bank after its branch manager suddenly disappeared.
The bank’s assurance that it will return the missing deposit has done little to comfort FO because of the paperwork it will entail.
FO does not want to affix his signature on documents that could tip authorities off on his multi-million peso deposits for fear it will open a can of worms.
Despite not being a stranger to controversy, FO would rather not involve himself in trouble because of money.
Politiko’s source said a bank official (BO) diverted attention on the issue to FO even if another politiko (AP) also lost his money when the branch manager vanished from sight.
AP was reportedly furious that his bank account’s balance suddenly went down to zero.
Afraid of fueling AP’s wrath, BO is scrambling to find ways to make the return of his money as hassle free as possible, in contrast to FO.
