“We just talked. He expressed his willingness to fully cooperate with any
investigation that may involve him. Why was he not arrested?
At the time of our meeting yesterday, there were no cases filed against
Mr. Alex Wong Chu King yet, that is why I did not order his arrest.”
- Justice Secretary Vitaliano N. Aguirre II
“I believe that the proper thing to do is for the representatives of Mighty Corp., the Department of Finance (DOF), the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and the DOJ to sit down and to fully determine the exact liabilities of Mighty Corp. if any and for the government to collect what is rightfully due to it,” Justice Secretary Aguirre stated after his closed door meeting with Mr. Alex Wong Chu King.
"If the DOF or the BIR or the BOC will determine that a criminal case should be filed against Mighty Corp., its officers or against Alex Wong Chu King with us at the DOJ, then we will faithfully discharge our duty and determine if probable cause exists,” Secretary Aguirre added.
“There is no reason to have Alex Wong Chu King arrested as of the moment. While the Department of Justice is at the forefront of ensuring that our laws be faithfully obeyed, there is a process that has to be observed under the law,” Secretary Aguirre further stated.
