NBI enforces CCTV surveillance, media restrictions for suspected pyramid boss Rasuman

The National Bureau of Investigation has adopted very tight security measures for Jachob “Coco” Rasuman, a businessman linked to a multimillion-peso pyramid investment scam, following his transfer there Tuesday night.

Restrictions on media and closed-circuit television surveillance were among the security measures the NBI enforced, radio dzBB's Carlo Mateo reported early Wednesday.

At least for Wednesday, the report said some of the measures were stricter than those afforded to suspects of the 2009 Maguindanao massacre when they were detained at the NBI.

The report said that while media representatives were occasionally allowed access to the cells of the Maguindanao massacre suspects, they were not allowed inside the facility where Rasuman was kept.

Rasuman was whisked to the NBI's headquarters in Manila shortly after being transferred to Metro Manila from Mindanao, where he was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

Upon arrival at the NBI, he was subjected to a medical examination and the usual criminal procedures, including having his mug shot taken.

On Tuesday afternoon, Lanao del Sur police head Senior Superintendent Romel Magsalos said the NBI served an arrest warrant

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
