Drug raps vs. Leila De Lima NOT bailable - DOJ Sec.

A sad weekend for the detained opposition senator- Leila De Lima.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has just announced through Secretary Menardo Guevarra that the charges against the opposition senator are non-bailable.

The statement of the DOJ Secretary came after the senator has once more asked formally the court t grant her temporary release 2 weeks before her 61st birthday on August 27.

That's her prerogative. But note that she is facing three drug-related cases, all of which are non-bailable," Guevarra said

The senator submitted a 138-page motion for bail dated August 14, through her counsel Teddy Esteban Rigoroso sought temporary liberty on bail in the drug charges filed against her, erstwhile justice department employee Ronnie Dayan, and former Bureau of Corrections director Rafael Z. Ragos.ccused along with others for soliciting money from high profile inmates at the New Bilibid Prison to support her senatorial bid in the May 2016 elections.

Prosecutors in the original criminal information dated Feb. 17, 2017, said de Lima, through Ragos and Dayan, received the proceeds of illegal drug trade amounting to PHP5 million on November 12, 2012, and again on December 15 of that year.
