One of the policemen labeled in the alleged extrajudicial killings in Davao City guaranteed Monday that Senator Leila de Lima offered him help in his authoritative case that was on request in 2009 in the midst of a continuous political break in the city.
Affirming before the Senate equity advisory group, SPO3 Enrique “Jun” Delos Reyes Ayao brought an episode up in May 2009 wherein he was drawn nearer by a male staff of De Lima in the wake of going to an open request in Davao on the alleged Davao Death Squad (DDS).
The request was held by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), which De Lima led then.
“Sinabi niya sa’kin na energy niya i-examine namin yung advancement sa pagka-tanggal ko…Kinuha yung cellphone number ko at in-exhort niya ako na mag-expect ng call from her in a couple days,” Ayao described.
Ayao said days after the fact, he recevied a call from De Lima, letting him know that “she needed to converse with me secretly in a tactful spot.”
He said very nearly a month later, another male staff called him letting him know: “Alam namin yung kaso mo, pinagkaisahan ka dyan. Ibabalik ka namin sa serbisyo. Kami na bahala sa seguridad ng pamilya mo at lahat ng gastos.”
As per Ayao, the staff requested his records as to his case on claim before the National Police Comission, and that De Lima expected the said papers preceding meeting with then-Philippine National Police boss Director General Jesus Versoza.
He said he denied the assistance, despite the fact that De Lima as far as anyone knows did not approach anything for trade.
De Lima, as far as it matters for her, said she couldn’t review constantly drawing closer nor conversing with Ayao. She said, in any case, that records of the CHR would affirm that Ayao went to the CHR request in May 2009.
De Lima asked Ayao:
“Ano ba gusto niyong palabasin dito? Ano ba ang kasalanan ko diyan, Kung totoo man?”
Ayao replied: “Wala akong dapat palabasin dito. Wala kayong kasalanan kasi at tsaka wala kayong ginawang masama.”
