De Lima claims she has goods on Duterte’s hand in Jaybee Sebastian stabbing
Senator Leila de Lima is claiming President Duterte is behind the riot inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) and the stabbing of inmate Jaybee Sebastian last Sept.
“Ang Pangulo mismo ang nag-utos nyan and implemented by his enforcers,” she said.
De Lima issued the statement Friday in response to the challenge made by Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre II to present proof that she did not order the attack on Sebastian to prevent him from testifying against her on her supposed drug links.
“I have my own sources, very credible ones, about who’s behind that stabbing incident that victimized four of the ‘Bilibid 19’, including Sebastian and why they did that,” she said.
“Clearly, that’s one sure way of coercing Sebastian et al to testify and lie against me as they eventually did after such stabbing incident,” the senator said.
Unlike her, De Lima said, those in the administration have the capacity and resources to do anything they want,
“including downright criminal acts in order to implement and consummate a presidential vendetta to destroy De Lima at all costs.”
