Two persons apprehended for allegedly producing fake National Bureau of Investigation clearances are facing charges for falsification of public documents, NBI agent Cyrus Aluzan said yesterday.
Nabbed by the NBI at 6 p.m. Friday were Norman Ocana Jr. and Elorde Matinguha who posted bail of P12,000 each for their temporary liberty, he said.
He said Ocana and Matinguha were apprehended by the NBI at their “Quick Fix” establishment in front of West Negros University in Bacolod City, after three fake NBI clearances were retrieved from their establishment.
The computers and three printing machines were also seized by the NBI.
They were charging P200 for the fake clearances that cost P115 at the NBI, Aluzan said.
Those who avail of fake clearances are believed to be those who have violated the law, he said.
Establishments that have employees with fake NBI clearances can report the matter to them for action, he added.
Quick Fix had been under surveillance since September 20 and the NBI applied for a search warrant to conduct the raid, he added.*CPG
