National Bureau of Investigation files complaint against six onion smugglers

On Monday, the National Bureau of Investigation filed a complaint against six unnamed suspects allegedly hoarding onions and engaging in profiteering in December last year. More charges will be filed pending case build-up, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said: “This is just one of the cases being developed by the DOJ, but there will be other cases filed up to the point of economic sabotage after we finish the case build-up and data evaluation. This is just the start. We will continue until it becomes clear to everyone that price manipulation in our market is unlawful.”

Remulla confirmed that there are government officials involved in onion smuggling and price manipulation cases.
