NBI files illegal drug raps, graft vs Senator De Lima and 17 others


The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) filed a case against Senator Leila De Lima and 17 others with their alleged involvement on the proliferation of illegal drugs at the New Bilibid Prison.

"Instead of fulfilling this mandate, Senator De Lima effectively brought about, supported and even promoted the proliferation of illegal drugs by conspiring with inmate gang leaders, for the purpose of furthering her political ambitions," according to the complaint read.

De Lima with others will face charges including drug trafficking, qualified bribery, and graft.

These are the names included: former Bureau of Corrections chief Franklin Jesus Bucayu, former Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III, former Bucor officer-in-charge Rafael Ragos, De Lima's former security aide and Presidential Security Group Member Joenel Sanchez, De Lima's former driver and bodyguard Ronnie Dayan, Ragos'close-in aide and NBI agent Jovencio Ablen Jr., Bucayu's alleged bagman Wilfredo Elli, DOJ employee Jesusa Francisco, De Lima's personal assistant during her DOJ stint Lyn Sagum, a certain Julius Rejuso, an alias George.

While the convicted high profile inmates Jaybee Sebastian, Herbert Colanggo, Engelbert Durano, Vicente Sy, Wu Tuan Yuan alias Peter Co, Jojo Baligad were included charged despite of their immunity because of their involvement in illegal drug trade.

NBI Spokesperson Ferdinand Lavin said that the evidences are strong against the accused.

"Klarong sinabi ni Secretary de Lima in one of the meetings in the kubol of Jaybee Sebastian that henceforth, the illegal drug trade in the Bilibid should be centralized or coursed through Jaybee Sebastian," Lavin said.

"We have interlocking confessions. Sanga-sanga itong confessions, iyung sinabi ng isa, vinalidate ng isa, ini-corroborate ng isa. We believe we have the case," Lavin added.

Meanwhile, De Lima still denied the accusations and said she is no longer surprised about it.

"Like their propensity for manufacturing lies, the filing of charges is fast becoming a bad habit for them. They just won't quit until they destroy me," De Lima said.
