Pahamak ka, Leila! Jaybee Sebastian’s life in greater danger coz De Lima revealed he’s a gov’t asset— lawyer


The lawyer of convicted kidnapper Jaybee Sebastian has scored Senator Leila de Lima for supposedly putting his client’s life in greater danger because of her revelation that he’s a government asset.

Atty.Eduardo Arriba said the threats to Sebastian’s life increased after De Lima’s revelation because his ties to the government have been confirmed by the inmates inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) whose illegal activities he supposedly exposed.

“Dahil dito sa rebelasyon na ito [ni De Lima], lalong nagalit at naapektuhan ang mga inmates sa NBP kaya tinangkang patayin si Jaybee Sebastian. Lalong napahamak si Jaybee Sebastian nang inanunsyo na siya ay asset ng gobyerno,” Arriba told reporters Wednesday (Oct. 5).

De Lima revealed that Sebastian was a government informant to dispel allegations he was her bagman in drug-related deals inside the NBP.

Last Sept. 28, Sebastian was badly wounded in a stabbing incident inside the national penitentiary which left one inmate dead.
