BREAKING NEWS! Bank records linked to Bilibid drug trade now with DOJ
During the drug trade probe at the House of Representatives, Aguirre said they had identified several bank accounts that were allegedly used by the drug lords to deposit funds for their protectors.
The said funds allegedly involved at least P1 billion.
The witnesses claimed that the drug money were all given to Sen. Leila de Lima to use for the latter's senatorial campaign early this year.
Just today, bank transaction records linked to the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison are now in the possession of the Department of Justice (DOJ) accoring to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II. He said the bank records were turned over to him by representatives from the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) on Thursday morning.
Aguirre gave a "very good" preliminary assessment of the records although he did not say if the documents would already show the trade of money between the drug lords and their protectors allegedly led by Senator Leila De Lima.
