CIDG director Maj. Gen. Albert Ferro said yesterday they are checking the businessman’s background following the arrest of six of his alleged kidnappers on Thursday.

“We will conduct an investigation and hope that the investment scam victims make an appearance,” he said in a text message.

Six persons, including a police officer, were arrested in Makati and Parañaque on Thursday for allegedly kidnapping Chiyuto. They face charges of serious illegal detention and kidnapping.

There have been reports the victim has duped an undetermined number of persons in the Visayas in a fraudulent investment scheme.
