Sen. De Lima was the Secretary of Justice when the public discovered that some inmates lived in a luxurious lifestyle inside the prison.
Lawmakers also discovered on their investigation that some inmates were allegedly protected by Senator De Lima in their illegal drug business inside the National Penitentiary.
One of the witnesses, Rodolfo Magleo labeled National Bilibid Prison as the Shabu Center of the Philippines during the neophyte Senator’s term as DOJ Sec.
Even Herbert Colanggo admitted that he used to gave 3M Pesos to De Lima in exchange of protection and VIP treatment.
After hearing all the testimony of the witnesses, some Lawmakers were already convinced that Sen. De Lima must face the consequences.
