Sen. Lacson: De Lima should be prepared to answer Kerwin's accusations


Senator Panfilo Lacson on Tuesday said that Senator Leila de Lima should be prepared a reply to alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa, whatever he may say against her.

“Humingi siya ng assurance na di siya ipapahiya ng kapwa senador; I don’t think fellow senators gagawa ng sadyang pamamaraan para ipahiya siya,” Lacson said.

“But she should also be prepared na sagutin kung i-confront siya directly ni Kerwin Espinosa kung ano ang ugnayan nilang dalawa,” he added.

Espinosa claimed that he gave De Lima P8 million.

Lacson said De Lima was included in the government official who received drug money in Kerwin's affidavit. The cop also who led the raid of Mayor Espinosa was included.

“Offhand, ang nakita ko sa affidavit kaya sinabi ko medyo lumiliwanag ang motibo, nakita ko na nasa payola niya mga opisyal na nasangkot sa pagkamatay ng ama niya,” Lacson said.

“Speculative pero circumstantial. Kung nasa payola nila ang mga na-involve sa pagkamatay ng tatay niya, posibleng may pinagtatakpan. Tutal, identified naman sino talaga pumatay sa tatay niya pero he mentioned Marcos, Laraga, Matira in his affidavit na siyang kumukuha ng regular na payola from him. It’s up to him to explain further or magbigay ng detalye bukas sa pagdinig. Pero yan ang initial na nakita ko na kaya sinabi kong posibleng lumiwanag ang motibo kung bakit napatay si Mayor Espinosa,” he added.
