Ironic: Marcos hidden wealth hunter Andy Bautista opens BVI account

Former Presidential Commission on Good Government Chairman Andy Bautista is part of the Pandora papers list of individuals with offshore accounts.

The abogado appeared in the Trident Trust records as a Baumann Enterprises Limited incorporator.

Bautista’s name is associated with the said British Virgin Islands company that was first registered in 2010 before it was reincorporated in 2017. The abogado was also involved in a controversy with now his estranged wife Patricia Paz Bautista the same year. She claimed she has found bank books and documents pertaining to his undeclared wealth worth 1 billion.

Previously, the abogado’s wife named Baumann as one of the companies he owns. Later that year, Bautista who was COMELEC chair then resigned from his post and left the country.

In a statement given to the press, the former COMELEC Chair denied that he has any ill-gotten wealth or that he has stolen from the Philippine government. The abogado stated that they have not dealt directly with Trident and that the accounts they have were opened upon the advice of the Bank Of Singapore in their attempt to pool all of the family’s assets together.

Oh what a tight spot to be in!
