Walang sacred cows dapat: De Lima says smuggling probe must cover Paolo Duterte

0 8

There should be “no sacred cows” in the ongoing Senate investigation into the smuggling scandal at the Bureau of Customs (BoC), detained Sen. Leila de Lima said on Friday.

“It is about time that the investigation on smuggling also includes the presidential son, Paolo Duterte,” de Lima said.

“Faeldon has shown the way,” the senator said referring to the allegation of the former BoC chief that the son of Sen. Ping Lacson, Pampi Jr., is allegedly involved in technical smuggling.

Sen. Sonny Trillanes earlier claimed that Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo, the first born of President Rodrigo Duterte, is behind the “Davao Group” which allegedly facilitates shipments for a “fee.”

“Let Panfilo Lacson Jr. and Paolo Duterte face the music at the Senate,” said de Lima, detained at the Phil. National Police (PNP) Custodial Center on drug charges.

She said that if Faeldon “does not really consider anybody a sacred cow, even a senator’s son, he should not stop there.”
