It’s a sign! De Lima: Calida’s refusal to disclose details on drug killings proof of cover up
Just like his master Duterte, Solicitor General Jose Calida has no word of honor, detained Sen. Leila de Lima said on Saturday.
She noted that on Dec. 5, 2017, during the Supreme Court’s hearings on the petitions against the legality of the war on drugs, Calida agreed to turn over and give official reports and other relevant documents related to the death of around 4,000 drug suspects during police operations.
“One month later, he reneged on his commitment citing that government compliance would endanger national security and the success of future operations,” De Lima said.
“Malinaw na cover-up ito dahil ‘pag nabunyag ang mga investigation records na ‘yan, mako-confirm ang matagal na nating hinala na karamihan sa mga napatay na drug suspects ay hindi nanlaban,” she said.
De Lima, detained at the Phil. National Police Custodial Center on drug charges, added, “Besides, national security is a lame excuse to defy the order of the Supreme Court.”
