Jaybee Sebastian files graft & criminal raps vs. De Lima

Convicted kidnapper and so-called “King of Drug Lords” in New Bilibid Prison (NBP) inmate Jaybee Sebastian has filed graft and criminal charges against Senator Leila De Lima at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

In a complaint submitted by his wife, Roxanne, on his behalf, Sebastian has alleged that De Lima violated the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials, the Anti-Torture Act, the Act Punishing the Receiving and Giving of Gifts of Public Officials and Employees as well as Indirect Bribery.

Sebastian has also accused De Lima of complicity when she was still Justice Secretary, which supposedly resulted in the proliferation of illegal drug trade inside the National Penitentiary.

Sebastian also refuted De Lima’s claim that he is a government asset inside the NBP.

He also asked that De Lima be punished for allegedly ordering his transfer from Maximum Security Compound to Building 14, where high-risk prisoners are detained.
