Thriller in Manila! Philippine bank, 3 heists with identical stories, in 3 separate years, involve President Duterte?
Odd. Three money laundering cases with almost identical story lines. There may be more, but these three all incorporate Manila casinos, pesos conversion, NY treasury, Bangladesh Bank, and cyber crimes, and somehow involve China, or Taiwan? Check it:

Mar 16 2016. Junket operator got 780,000 banknotes in laundering scam

DHAKA/MANILA - Bangladesh's central bank governor resigned on Tuesday over the theft of $81 million from the bank's U.S. account, as details emerged in the Philippines that $30 million of the money was delivered in cash to a casino junket operator in Manila.

The rest of the money hackers stole from the Bangladesh Bank's account at the New York Federal Reserve, one of the largest cyber heists in history, went to two casinos, officials told a Philippines Senate hearing into the scandal.

They said a mix of dollars and Philippine pesos was sent by a foreign exchange broker to the ethnic Chinese junket operator over several days, a haul that would have been made up of at least 780,000 banknotes.

Unknown hackers last month breached the computer systems of Bangladesh Bank and attempted to steal $951 million from its Fed account, which it uses for international settlements. They managed to transfer $81 million to entities in the Philippines.

September 7, 2017. Ex-bank manager to face charges in Philippines for cyber heist, others cleared

MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine prosecutors have recommended the filing of charges against a former bank manager for her part in laundering tens of millions of dollars stolen from Bangladesh’s central bank last year, but they cleared two casino agents and a remittance firm.

A Department of Justice (DOJ) resolution said it had dropped charges filed by the government’s Anti-Money Laundering Council against Philrem Service Corp, which had called the remittance firm a “cleaning house” last year in the movement of funds from one of the world’s biggest cyber-heists.
The DOJ resolution was dated Aug 24 but was distributed on Thursday.

Hackers penetrated Bangladesh Bank in February last year and sent fraudulent requests for nearly $1 billion from its account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, mostly intended for accounts in the Manila-based Rizal Commercial Banking Corp (RCBC).

Many of the transfer orders were blocked or reversed by the U.S. central bank and intermediary banks, but $81 million made it to accounts in fake names at RCBC. Most of the funds then disappeared into Manila’s loosely regulated casino industry.

January 11, 2019. Ex-bank manager guilty of money laundering

MANILA, Philippines — A Makati City court yesterday convicted a former bank branch manager of money laundering for her role in one of the biggest cyber-heists in history involving $81 million belonging to the Bangladesh government.

In a 26-page decision, Judge Cesar Untalan of Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 149 sentenced Maia Santos-Deguito to prison terms of up to 56 years, or four to seven years for each of the eight counts of money laundering.
The court also ordered her to pay $109 million in fines. But the court allowed her to remain free on bail as her lawyer prepares to appeal her conviction.

Bangladesh Ambassador Asad Alam Siam, who was present during the promulgation, said his government  was considering its next step. He expressed hope the cases filed with the Department of Justice by the Anti-Money Laundering Council against six other officials of the Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) would be expedited.

As manager of RCBC branch on Jupiter Street in Makati City, Deguito was found guilty of allowing the transfer of $81 million from the Bangladesh Bank to multiple accounts under fictitious names in February 2016. The amount would have reached $1 billion had the US Federal Reserve not alerted the bank of the questionable fund transfer.

Just two months ago, Mr Détente claimed “China is already in possession of the South China Sea” as he has looked to align the country with Beijing.

"The food of the Filipino people are being robbed by the Chinese in our own territory," Alejano said in a statement.

The opposition lawmaker attributed this to President Rodrigo Duterte's policy toward China, which has been silent on harassment against Filipino fishermen and soldiers stationed in the area.
