Ombudsman Morales to investigate De Lima's alleged links to drug trade

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales finally ordered an investigation against 
Senator Leila de Lima in her involvement in the illegal drugs trade at the New Bilibid Prison.

“There have been some leads. We’re giving it due course by conducting fact-finding,” Morales said.

Albuera police chief Jovie Espenido filed a complaint against De Lima before the Office of the Ombudsman in the Visayas.

Espinedo said De Lima was receiving payola from Kerwin Espinosa.

Earlier, Morales stated that there was still no reason for her to investigate De Lima.

“It’s not going to happen,” Morales said.

“Because lahat naman allegations itong mga ito. Wala pa namang lead talaga that would prompt us to initiate our investigation,” Morales added.

Lately, Atty. Belgica also filed a case against De Lima to have a preventive suspension and lambasted the Ombudsman for taking the sides of the senator.
