1 Qualified Theft on Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:34 am


Arresto Menor
Good Morning. My boyfriend works as an Audit manager at a Cooperative. Last 2008, they made an under the table arrangement with a BIR mediator to lessen their taxes. One of their Board of Directors have bitter feelings at their Coop since he didn't win in their election. So, he filed a case against them for qualified theft. He is questioning where the 'suhol' to the BIR mediator went even though they booked it as professional fee. My boyfriend, during that time was just a Bookkeeper. He was just following orders from his bosses as to where the money will go and he was dragged into this issue. He pointed in his affidavit that he was 'following orders' from his immediate supervisors. Furthermore, their lawyer told them that in worst-case-scenario, they will pin point him and his supervisor because they were the ones who accompanied the BIR mediator to encash the check.
Although the check was actually signed by the BIR mediator and not by my boyfriend. What are the rights of my boyfriend in case this event may come? The case is now at the Fiscal's office and hasn't been decided yet if there is enough evidence to further go on with the case. It's been 3 years already and my boyfriend couldn't get an NBI clearance because of the case. His PRC ID as a CPA will expire next year. What are the possibilities that this case will go on? Does this case have a chance to be dissolved? What are the possible sanctions to him if this case will pursue?

how do you know that he is unable to get an nbi clearance? has he tried?

whether the case will prosper depends on what evidence is presented.
