MANILA - 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).
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.
