Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II on Wednesday claimed he has a witness who can testify that Senator Leila de Lima kept P300 million seized from high-profile inmates during the 2014 raid of the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
Aguirre said the witness, in a six-page letter to President Duterte last August 6, revealed that the cash confiscated from the raid led by De Lima as then Justice secretary amounted to P300 million, and not P1.6 million as reported.
Asked where the purported undeclared funds ended up, Aguirre said: “Kay Secretary de Lima daw nga, doon dinala ng mga NBI (National Bureau of Investigation)." [The NBI allegedly delivered it to Secretary de Lima]
"Iyun ang sagutin mo, Secretary De Lima, masyado kang yakyak nang yakyak [That's what you should answer, Secretary De Lima, you yap too much]," he added.
Aguirre made the revelation after De Lima lashed at her critics and even dared President Rodrigo Duterte to just arrest her.
