“If she really wants to clear her name and help government stop the proliferation of illegal drugs not just in the NBP but also in the entire country, then she may wish to appear in our next hearing instead of casting aspersions on the integrity of our probe through media,” said Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali.
Senator Leila de Lima did not attend to committee hearing to defend and clear her name. She also dismissed the witnesses’ statements as “perjured”.
“May I ask?: Does she expect angel to squeal!?” Umali said.
“We summoned witnesses who have first-hand-knowledge of the illegal activities in prison. Who else can they be but convicted criminals themselves?” he said.
