June 16, 2019 — The National Bureau of Investigation on Sunday released WellMed co-founder Bryan Christopher Sy after posting bail in his estafa and falsification of private documents cases, his lawyer Atty. Rowell Ilagan confirmed.
Ilagan said that Sy was released at 10:45 a.m.
Sy’s dialysis clinic has been linked to a financial anomaly with the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) involving “ghost” patients of kidney treatments.
The release order was signed by Judge Jerome U. Jimenez of Branch 6 of the Metropolitan Trial Court in Manila after Sy posted a 72,000.00 cash bail bond.
President Rodrigo Duterte earlier ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to arrest the owner of WellMed Dialysis & Laboratory Center Corporation.
