In connection with the investigation of the proliferation of illegal drugs inside the New Bilibid Prison, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said that there are at least 10 bank accounts in three local banks where drug lords deposit their drug trade proceeds amounting to P15 billion that are being probed.
“May 10 different accounts, may individuals, corporations, iba-iba. Marami talagang huhukayin, marami talagang lead,”
He also said that he is already asking for necessary documents from the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) on the supposed bank accounts, some of which are individual and corporate accounts.
“Itong mga corporate account na iyan, syempre isa-isahin ko iyan, hindi ganoon kadali.”
He said there are still more that is being given to them.
“Tuloy tuloy ang aming pag-request sa AMLC kasi parami nang parami ang bank accounts na ibinibigay sa amin,”
However, he clarified that not all the P15-billion drug money solely went to Senator Leila de Lima.
Aguirre earlier said the DOJ was in possession of AMLC documents showing bank transactions amounting P500 million to more than P1 billion that could could purportedly link her to drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City. He stated that there have been bank accounts that are being given to him to investigate. Although there are a lot and the money is big, he cleared that not all belongs to De Lima.
Maybe that is why De Lima denied that she owns all the bank accounts. If not all, maybe some?
