Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson believes that every evidence from the witnesses against Senator Leila De Lima are credible enough to file a case against her. He even checked all the affidavits that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has presented yesterday during the Senate hearing.
I took special notice of the narrations of NBI agent Jovencio Ablen Jr. and Rafael Ragos, not to mention those of Colangco, Magleo, and the other high-profile inmates.Lacson is referring to the Republic Act 9165 or also known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, where it says that the government shall conduct an intensive campaign against trafficking and use of dangerous drugs and other similar substances.
My own assessment of the evidentiary value of those affidavits, and I could fairly conclude based on some verified and verifiable facts that those allegations are credible enough to get past the probable cause requirement to file a criminal information in any court of law.
Sen. De Lima To Face Expulsion Charged by DOJ
Senator Lacson explained if De Lima will be proven guilty, the latter should expect to experience the same situation of their previous colleagues such as Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr. who are now in Camp Crame as detainees.
In case she’s indicated for an unbailable offense such as what’s provided for in RA 9165, then she won’t be able to perform her duties as a senator, just like our former colleagues who are facing plunder cases with the Sandiganbayan.[Source]
