Kulong pa din! : Jaybee Sebastian’s death won’t affect De Lima’s cases - DOJ Sec Guevarra

Not so fast!
Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra quashed any insinuations that the detained opposition senator Leila De Lima will now be released because of the death of Jaime Sebastian.

Gueverra gave the assurance that Sebastian’s death will not affect the detention of senator Leila de Lima.

“The prosecution has an array of witnesses,” said the DOJ secretary.
“Many of them have already testified in court,” he added.
Sebastian is a State witness and at the same time co-accused of the opposition senator in the drug charges she is facing before the Muntinlupa City regional trial courts (RTC).

Among the big testimonies of Sebastian was that he gave de Lima 14 million as contribution for her 2016 senatorial campaign war chest which was sourced from the illegal drug trade conducted inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).

Govt will not stop fabricating evidence for her to stay in detention

“The Duterte regime can have 100 live witnesses for all I care,” the detained senator said Monday. “But this still does not change the fact that the charges against me are absolutely false and fictitious.”
De Lima added, “Conversely, the regime’s witnesses can all be dead, but this will not prevent Duterte and his operators from inventing other evidence to keep me in jail.”
