Anti-crime advocates filed on Tuesday drug trafficking complaints with the Department of Justice (DOJ) against Senator Leila De Lima and seven other personalities allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison.
Apart from De Lima, also charged by the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption with sale of illegal drugs and conspiracy to commit drug trade under Republic Act 9165 were:
former Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III;
former Bureau of Corrections chief Franklin Bucayu;
De Lima's former security aides Ronnie Dayan, Joenel Sanchez and Jose Adrian Dera alias Jad De Vera;
Bucayu's staff and alleged bagman Col. Wilfredo Ely; and
high profile inmate Jaybee Sebastian
UPDATE: Mga ebidensiya vs de Lima et al., higit sa sapat para mapakulong sila.
