After the plan to oust President Duterte out from his post, another scandal of Former Aquino, Roxas and other known personalities involved with 3,500 metric tons of 99.999% pure gold, estimated value of $141 billion. But what are the reasons behind why they did this shipment at the Bank of Thailand?
Former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III and six other officials faced graft and plunder during over the alleged shipment of $141 billion in gold to Thailand.

Franklin Drilon.
According to some reports, all the personalities involved of the alleged accusation denied and are furious about the leak evidence. However, the Transnational Organized Crime Intelligence Group TAOC-IG investigating the illegal shipment during the previous administration strongly disagrees.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said "this is the promise of President Duterte to prevent crime and corruption within his administration. Perhaps, this might be one the reasons why the opposition is so desperate to remove him from his office, knowing the alleged previous corruption of the government."
The complaint was filed based on a purported BSP circular that was first seen on social media. According to the news, more witnesses from central bank insiders are going to supply or provide additional evidence and would be willing to testify the court to the crime if needed.
