Hindi umano makaapekto ang pagkakasawi ni Jaybee Sebastian sa kaso ni Sen. Leila de Lima ukol sa iligal na droga ayon sa counsel ng senador ngayong Martes.
Matatandaang isa si Sebastian, high-profile inmate at convicted drug lord, sa nagsabit sa pangalan ng senadora ukol sa illegal drug trade.
Nauna nang kinumpirma ng Department of Justice ang pagkakasawi ni Sebastian sa COVID-19 at nag-atas na rin ito na imbestigahan ang insidente.
Isa umanong witness si Sebastian sa 2 criminal cases na isinampa laban kay De Lima, ayon sa abogado ng senadora na si Atty. Boni Tacardo.
“We believe that Mr. Sebastian will not in anyway bolster the prosecution’s evidence against Sen. De Lima. We believe that all the evidence against the good senator are weak from the very beginning simply because they are mere fabricated stories devoid of any factual basis,” anang abogado sa interbyu niya sa ANC.
“Whether the fabricator is dead or alive doesn’t change the fact that the stories are all lies and that the case against me are all fake,” ayon sa pahayag ng senadora na binasa ni Tacardo.
“Any follower of the hearings can easily observe how incredible their stories are and how they actually contradicted each other. There was even 1 witness who intimated to the senator herself in open court that he will be killed if he did not testify,” dagdag pa ng abogado.
“With this as background, if and when Jaybee Sebastian takes the witness stand, we will be just doing the same thing, we will be exposing how fabricated his testimony would be and how it would contradict other statements given by the witnesses of the prosecution.”
