Authorities are now in possession of telephone records involving alleged calls to bribe high profile inmates into retracting their testimonies on Senator Leila de Lima's drug links.
The telephone records are now with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the National Bureau of Investigation, Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said on Wednesday.
Aguirre, however, did not provide details about the phone records and other evidence that government agents have gathered.
Aguirre earlier tagged former senator Jamby Madrigal and Laguna Rep. Marlyn Alonte-Naguiat in the alleged bribe offer supposedly made in the run up to the anti-administration rally during the 31st anniversary of the People Power revolution on February 25.
The justice chief relied on the testimony of Lalaine Madrigal-Martinez, wife of Noel Martinez, one of the high profile inmates detained at Camp Aguinaldo whose testimonies were used by the DOJ as basis in filing drug trading cases against the senator before the Muntinlupa City Regional Trial Court (RTC).
Martinez had already turned over to the NBI an alleged recording as evidence to back her claim.
Both Madrigal and Alonte have denied the accusation.
De Lima is now under police detention after Judge Juanita Guerrero of the Muntinlupa City RTC Branch 204 ordered her arrest, as well as former Bureau of Corrections officer-in-charge Rafael Ragos and her former driver-bodyguard Ronnie Dayan.
