MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Justice (DOJ) is now looking at another group that may be behind another investment scam in Mindanao.

Justice Sec. Leila De Lima said efforts are underway to determine if the Coco Rasuman Group, which operates in Lanao and nearby provinces, has links with Aman Futures Philippines, Inc., which is being implicated in a P12 billion pyramiding scam.

No further details were given to the media on the extent of operations of the Coco Rasuman Group so as not to jeopardize the ongoing probe.

De Lima confirmed Rasuman, son of a former DPWH official, was "arrested" by a soldier who reportedly was among the victims of the investment scam.
