De Lima, Trillanes tagged in NBP attack


Senators Leila de Lima and Antonio Trillanes 4th were taggged in the stabbing incident at the New Bilibid Prison in September, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre 2nd said Tuesday.

Aguirre however admitted that there is no evidence to prove the allegation.

“One of the inmates said it was instigated to stop Jaybee Sebastian (from testifying on De Lima’s drug links),” Aguirre told reporters, adding that the same inmate claimed that an official of the Philippine Navy ordered the stabbing incident that claimed the life of convicted drug lord Tony Co and injured four other inmates.

“Nababanggit dun si Trillanes and De Lima (Trillanes and De Lima were mentioned) but no supporting (evidence),” he added.

Inmate Tomas Doniña, in an affidavit read before the House of Representatives, said a former colleague at the Philippine Navy ordered him to attack Sebastian to prevent the latter from spilling the beans on De Lima’s links to illegal drugs.

De Lima had said she had nothing to do with the stabbing incident on September 28 at the NBP.

Because of the attack, Sebastian was transferred from the NBP in Muntinlupa City to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) headquarters in Manila to secure his safety.

  1. That’s non sense statements why just keep quite and let investigation due its course. Filipinos are tired of accusing here and there. Enough is enough we need to moved on and election was over. For aspiring politicians please wait for the next election to come. The only problem for our Filipino politicians they don’t accept and if they are the only one who can run our country but they are inept and corrupt. Unless there is vote buying in our elections there will be no honest politicians in our country

    Totally absurd coming from an idiot and incompetent Secretary of Justice. My information is that it was Sec. Aguirre who ordered the stabbing of convicted criminal Jaybee Sebastian to scare him and force him to testify against sex maniac Senator Leila de Lima.Please take mote that before the stabbing incident, Jaybee Sebastian refuses to testify against de Lima
