WATCH: President Duterte confident that Sen. De Lima will go to jail
President Rodrigo Duterte is confident that one of his well-known critics, Senator Leila De Lima would go in jail soon.
Duterte said that the former Department of Justice Secretary would be pinned down by the testimonies of the witnesses who accused her of protecting the drug trade in the Bilibid in exchange of money. “Makukulong naman talaga yan, because of the testimonial evidence, makukulong ito and everybody [in bilibid prison] says five or six would say that they contributed money” Duterte told the officers of the Malacañang Press, Cameramen and Photojournalists.
The President also believes that the most feared narco politics was already here in the Philippines because the people elected a Senator who allegedly received money from drug lords.
“She will be jailed when everybody says, five (witnesses) could say that they contributed money. So on a national scale…who brought in the narco politics? It is here already,” he added.
The President also said that Senator De Lima may face non-bailable cases related to drugs.
