At the moment, former Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III is spared from the drug charges hounding Senator Leila De Lima.

In a resolution dated February 14, Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors ruled that the drug complaint “insofar as Francisco F. Baraan III is concerned, be dismissed for insufficiency of evidence.”

Baraan, who had supervision over the New Bilibid Prison (NBP), has been accused of being involved in the proliferation of illegal drugs at the national penitentiary along with De Lima.

However, Baraan is not out of the woods yet as to the other criminal complaints where he is co-respondent.

In the same resolution, DOJ prosecutors “endorsed to the Office of the Ombudsman for its appropriate action” the criminal complaints for violation of Republic Act (RA) 3019, the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act; RA 6713, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees; Presidential Decree (PD) No. 46, known as the Act Punishing the Receiving and Giving of Gifts of Public Officials and Employees; and direct bribery and indirect bribery under the Revised Penal Code (RPC).
