Court of Appeals grants bail to ex-Pagadian City Mayor Samuel Co


Sharing is caring!

The Court of Appeals (CA) has allowed the release on bail of former Pagadian City Mayor Samuel Co who is facing a case of syndicated estafa for his alleged involvement in the reported P12-billion Aman Futures investment scam.

In an 18-page decision, the appeals court’s Special Eleventh Division through Associate Justice Sesinando Villon reversed and set aside the May 11, 2015 order issued by Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 14 Judge Albert J. Tenorio.

Tenorio denied Co’s application for bail but granted the bail bid of the latter’s wife Priscilla. The Manila Court, orders dated Aug. 24 and Dec. 15, 2015, also denied Co’s motion for reconsideration.
