P3. 2B investment case suspect flees to Taiwan – NBI aid sought

THE National Bureau of Investigation has been asked to track down the primary suspect in a P3.2-billion investment case after he reportedly absconded and hid abroad to avoid prosecution.

In a letter, the victim, Valerie Sebastian, asked NBI Director Eric Distor to follow through on said leads, as their family continues to receive information that suspect Wong Chung Yin, alias David Wong, is hiding in Taiwan.

“Recently, we received information that the subject Wong … is in hiding in Taiwan. Even if INTERPOL did issue a Red Notice against said Wong Chun Yin, we find it appropriate to actively involve your office so that this ‘fugitive from justice’ may finally be arrested to face trial,” Sebastian’s legal counsel, Atty Jose Mariano Tan, wrote to the NBI.

Wong Chun Yin, alias David Wong, leads the list of suspects facing syndicated estafa charges after their company DW Capital Inc allegedly defrauded Sebastian of P3. 2 billion in investments.

Others who were named suspects are Derwin Wong, Derick Wong, Diane Wong, Davidson Wong, Lucy Chua, Juvy Ting, Susan Lu, Beverly Ansay and Leonardo Marsan.

In her complaint, the victim Sebastian claimed that DW Capital had committed “unauthorized, fraudulent and deceitful acts” when it allegedly traded her shares of stocks without her knowledge and consent.

The missing shares were discovered in July 2017. The proceeds of the unauthorized sale of shares were allegedly diverted to Wong and most of his family, who are his co-accused and executives of DWCI.

On October 9, 2019, the NBI informed Sebastian that David Wong, along with Diane, Davidson, and Derick Wong were already included in red notices issued by the Interpol.
