Rep. Harry Roque wants De Lima to resign



According to the interview of Kabayan Party-List Representative Harry Roque, he said the evidence is enough for Senator Leila De Lima to resign as a senator.

"Ngayon po, sa mga nasiwalat na ebidensiya, ang aking payo po sana kay Leila de Lima, sana po siya'y magbitiw na. Bagama't kami po'y nasa Kamara at hiwalay pong House of Congress, ang Kongreso eh iisa naman po kaming Kongreso sa 17th Congress. Tingin ko po, makakasira sa institusyon na siya ay manatili sa pwesto," Roque said. 


Roque cited that there is much evidence pointing De Lima in her involvement in drugs and the testimonies are coming from NBI officials.

"Hindi lang po isa, hindi lang po dalawa, tatlo na po ang positibong nagsabi na nagbigay po sa kaniya ng pera. 'Yung dalawa po, nagsabi na nakatanggap siya P10 million. Di po iyan mga preso, 'yan po ay mga opisyales ng NBI. Meron po 'yan presumption of regularity in the discharge of their functions. Wala pong kaduda-duda sa aking pag-iisip na talaga pong lumabag sa batas si Leila de Lima," Roque added.

Former NBI Deputy Director Rafael Ragos said during the House probe that he conveyed the purse to De Lima's home where he gave it to Dayan. He went in the two times he conveyed cash to De Lima's home together with Jovencio Ablen, an NBI official who validated the testimony of Ragos.

Roque maintained that unlike Senator Panfilo Lacson who believes there is prima facie evidence to file a case against De Lima, Roque said he thinks there is proof beyond reasonable doubt.

"Actually, that's to be expected po sapagkat, you know kung ako rin si Secretary De Lima, hindi ako mali-link directly. She may be ugly, but she's not stupid," Ferdinand Topacio, lawyer of the inmates said.
