Gov’t out to silence ‘Bikoy’ after arrest of website creator - Sen. De Lima



Opposition and detained Senator Leila De Lima has a different take on the arrest of Rodel Jayme by government authorities, the creator of the website that published the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos which has linked President and his immediate family to the illegal drug trade.
She says all of these actions have the intention of silencing “Bikoy” who as of now is not known.
“The arrest of Jayme is not an act of justice but an unfortunate attempt at winning brownie points from Pres. Duterte by the current DOJ [Department of Justice] Secretary, something his predecessor has gained notoriety of,” De Lima said.

“BiKoy” is the hooded figure who narrated in the “Totoong Narcolist” video.
Jayme in a press conference yesterday admitted that he was not the one who uploaded the video, and that he was left to fend for himself by his former colleagues in the Liberal Party.
Department of Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said Jayme voluntarily went to the NBI Headquarters to clarify issues on his arrest and voluntarily surrendered his devices for investigation on April 30.
The NBI has filed inciting to sedition complaint against Jayme and will also be subjected to inquest proceedings before the National Prosecution Service (NPS).

Focus on EJK
De Lima has asked the DOJ to focus on investigating more pressing issues such as extra-judicial killings (EJKs) under the  drug war and cases involving the President’s critics.

“Bakit hindi pagtuunan ng pansin ng DOJ Secretary ang libo-libong EJK na hanggang ngayon ay walang tigil na nagaganap sa bansa dahil walang kinakasuhan na salarin ang DOJ? Bakit hindi pa nila pagtuunan ng pansin ang daan-daang higit na mahahalagang kasong nakabinbin sa DOJ na hindi laban sa mga kritiko ng Pangulo?” De Lima said.
