Antonio’s abogado, Howard Calleja, recently went to the National Bureau of Investigation to ask for copies of the complaints against the businessman’s startup, Revolution Precrafted Properties.
“[Calleja] appeared on behalf of Robbie and said he will settle the legitimate claims in a peaceful and lawful manner,” National Bureau of Investigation Special Action Unit supervising agent Mark Santiago told Bilyonaryo.
Several contractors have filed fraud charges against Antonio before the NBI for allegedly duping them of around P150 million. The complaint accused the businessman of demanding a total of P150 million from the contractors to become Revolution’s preferred suppliers.
After receiving the money, however, the company stopped dealing with the contractors, who were mostly small and medium businessmen.
Santiago said Calleja asked for 15 days to study the complaints. A meeting at the NBI office has been set on March 5.
Robbie resigned from CPG as co-managing director and member of the board following the controversy over his startup.
