Former exec of two closed banks faces criminal charges
by Press release

The Department of Justice filed criminal charges against the former chairman of the board of directors of the closed Accord Savings Bank, Inc. (ASBI) who is also the former chief executive officer of the closed Philippine Farmers Bank, Inc. (PFBI), and against a former member of ASBI’s Board and PFBI Vice President for Audit and Risk Management, for violations of Republic Act No. 3591 or the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC).

The cases, based on the complaint filed by the PDIC, are now pending before Regional Trial Court, Branch 148, for Makati City. Violation of the PDIC Charter is punishable with imprisonment of not less than six years up to 12 years and/or fine of P50,000 to P2 million.  

The DOJ’s criminal informations stated that the accused conspired with each other to use the funds of PFBI aggregating P69.5M to acquire capital stocks of ASBI causing material loss and damage to the depositors of both closed banks and the PDIC.

Upon takeover by the PDIC as receiver of PFBI, the ASBI capital stocks were not recorded as assets of PFBI.  

On the other hand, upon takeover by the PDIC as receiver of ASBI, the stocks paid for with the funds of PFBI were recorded in the name of the respondent and his associates, which enabled him to take control over ASBI.

Other than ASBI, the accused held controlling interest over the closed PFBI and Winbank, Inc.

ASBI was an 11-unit thrift bank while PFBI was a 14-unit rural bank ordered closed by the Monetary Board of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and placed under PDIC receivership on April 17, 2009 and Sept. 17, 2009, respectively.

The filing of charges against officers of the closed ASBI and PFBI is in support of PDIC’s efforts to bring to justice parties that engage in acts that put depositors and the Deposit Insurance Fund at risk.

The PDIC continues to pursue legal actions against bank officials and personnel who engage in unsafe or unsound banking practices that pose grave threats to the stability of the country’s banking system.
