MANILA, Philippines - Malacañang on Wednesday said it is doing what it can to look for the perpetrators of the pyramiding scam involving Aman Futures Group.

Cabinet Secretary Rene Almendras said Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak promised to look into the case amid reports that Aman Futures founder Mohammad Suffian Saaid, also known as Manuel Amalilio, had fled to Malaysia.
"The President is quite close to Prime Minister Najib and he purposely said that and that they promised that they are going to look into it… In addition to that, the President's instruction is everything legally possible should be done at the earliest possible time. That is exactly what the agencies are doing," he said.

Earlier reports said Amalilio, a Filipino-Malaysian, was allegedly hiding in Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia.
