Jan Marsalek, former chief operating officer of Wirecard AG currently being pursued by the German authorities in relation to the accounting scandal, did not pass through the Philippines, the country's justice secretary Menardo Guevarra told the Financial Times on Friday.

"We have established that Jan Marsalek did not arrive in the Philippines on June 23 based on CCTV footage, airline manifests, and other records. The investigation has now turned to the persons who made the false entries in the database, their motives, and their cohorts," Guevarra told the news organization.

Earlier, authorities in Singapore announced they are investigating two companies possibly connected to the Wirecard's accounting scandal.
