No bail! NBI exec says Francis Leo Marcos transferred to Bicutan jail
Vlogger Norman Mangusin a.k.a ‘Francis Leo Marcos’ is not going anywhere for anytime soon.
This as National Bureau of Investigation-Cyber Crime Division (NBI-CCD) chief Victor Lorenzo divulged that Mangusin was already transferred to Camp Bagong Diwa jail in Taguig City on various charges that included a non-bailable offense.
Lorenzo made the disclosure following reports now making rounds on social media that the controversial influencer – ‘FLM’ to his diehard followers – would be out from detention soon.
“Nasa Bicutan jail siya. Papaano makakaalis eh no bail? May mga set ng hearings pa, ” Lorenzo said on Sunday.
Recently, the NBI has filed more criminal charges against Mangusin for violations of the Passport Law, and for concealment of true name in violation of the Revised Penal Code.
The cases were filed before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office, Lorenzo said.
Lorenzo earlier bared that Mangusin owns three passports under the names Norman Mangusin, Francis Antonio Marcos, and Francis Leo Marcos.
Also, he confirmed receipt of a certification from the Philippine Statistics Office (PSO) that only the ‘Norman Mangusin’ has a birth certificate.
” Nakita namin na iniiwasan niya ma-link duon sa Norman Mangusin, ” Lorenzo bared.
NBI agents arrested Marcos for violation of the Optometry Law after he was accused of distributing eyeglasses without necessary permits.
He was nabbed in his Quezon City residence by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by a court in Baguio City.
Marcos became ‘popular’ for his hit ‘Mayaman Challenge’ on social network where he would dare his affluent neighbors and friends to donate money and basic goods like rice to the poor.
He once reportedly claimed that he’s related to the family of former Philippine strongman Ferdinand Marcos.
But the camp of former senator Bongbong Marcos through his spokesperson, lawyer Vic Rodriguez, denied his claims of being related to the clan.
Marcos was also facing a case for qualified human trafficking, a non-bailable offense.
According to Lorenzo, Marcos has a pending qualified human trafficking case before a Manila court, and a violence against women and children in a Nueva Ecija court.
