“We will charge him now with (violation of the) Passport Law and concealment of true name. We have completed collecting the documents. We will also charge him under the Bayanihan Act for the fake news (he made),” said Lorenzo.

Reports from the Philippine News Agency further that Lorenzo specifically noted Mangusin’s claim that nothing is being done especially by the wealthy to help alleviate the poor’s plight during the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

The details in connection with Mangusin’s two passports have been sent to the NBI by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Lorenzo said.

“We are also interested in what supporting documents he used in obtaining the passport under the name Francis Leo Marcos,” the NBI said.

Mangusin was arrested earlier after a court in Baguio issued a warrant of arrest for unauthorized distribution of eyeglasses, which was a violation of Republic Act 8050 or the Optometry Law.
