CHICAGO -- A Filipino home healthcare owner from suburban Chicago has pleaded guilty to defrauding Medicare of millions of dollars after signing up to a plea agreement. Her co-defendant, however, has yet to come up with a plea.
Glenview, Illinois resident Neila Laurel, the owner and operator of Omega Healthcare Network in her home town and Evanston, faces a maximum of 57 months imprisonment with her pending sentence in just over two months before Judge Robert M. Dow, Jr. of the Eastern Division of the Northern District of Illinois of the United States District Court.
Armed with an affidavit as a condition imposed by Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV showed up at Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) Julia Vargas branch, Pasig City 11 am, April 2 but still failed to get a waiver from the Mayor to disprove allegations of PHP 2.4 billion “hidden wealth,” including the PHP 211 million deposit in the said bank.

Although he was open to showing “all” of his bank transactions during the past 30 years, Duterte insisted all other candidates must be compelled to open all their accounts, too.
