June 21, 2020

MORE charges are being readied against infuencer Norman Mangusin alias 'Francis Leo Marcos' or simply FLM to his social media followers.

National Bureau of Investigation-Cyber Crime Division (NBI-CCD) chief Victor Lorenzo bared that charges for violation of the Passport Law and for concealment of true name in violation of the Revised Penal Code, will be filed against Mangusin this week.

“By next week ipa-file na namin, " Lorenzo said on Sunday, adding the complaints will be transmitted to the Manila Prosecutor’s Office.

According to Lorenzo, FLM  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 'Norman Mangusin' has a birth certificate.

" Nakita namin na iniiwasan niya ma-link duon sa Norman Mangusin, " Lorenzo bared.

Just recently, NBI agents arrested Marcos for violation of the Optometry Law after he was accused of distributing eyeglasses without necessary permits.

Marcos was nabbed in his Quezon City residence by virtue of an arrest warrant issued by a court in Baguio City.

Lorenzo said  Marcos' arrest stemmed from a complaint by the Philippine Association of Ophthalmology.

Marcos became popular for his hit 'Mayaman Challenge' on social media wherein he dared affluent neighbors and friends to donate money and basic goods like rice to the poor.

He once reportedly claimed that he is  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 is 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.
