NBI information chief Nicanor Suarez said that the NBI’s Anti-Graft Division (NBI-AGD) placed Sy under arrest after heading its summons and appearing at its offices.

“The arrest was made based on the complaint filed by Philhealth and the whistleblowers,” said Suarez.

The information chief said that NBI-AGD is already preparing the documentation to present Sy before the Department of Justice (DOJ) in Manila on for inquest on Tuesday morning (June 11) for estafa through falsification of public documents and violation of the Philhealth Law.
