Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Monday (July 20) has assured that the drug prosecution of Sen. Leila de Lima will not be affected with the loss of convicted carnapper and kidnapper Jaybee Sebastian.
Guevarra pointed this out after Sebastian died last July 18 at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Hospital due to the COVID-19 disease.
“The prosecution has an array of witnesses,” said the secretary.
“Many of them have already testified in court,” he added.
Sebastian is a witness and at the same time co-accused of de Lima in the drug charges she is facing before the Muntinlupa City regional trial courts (RTC).
Among his revelations, he said he contributed P14 million to the 2016 senatorial campaign of de Lima which was sourced from his illegal drug earnings.
