GMA News reports: Jaybee Sebastian will talk about his knowledge into the drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison but only to President Rodrigo Duterte, his legal counselor said on Wednesday, hours after the prominent inmate was harmed in an uproar inside the jail compound.
In a live meeting on GMA News TV’s QRT, Sebastian’s legal counselor Edgar Arriba said the occurrence demonstrated that there was an obvious risk to the inmate’s life.
“Napakarami niyang alam,” said Arriba. “Ayaw niyang magsalita dahil lalong manganganib ang buhay niya.”
Arriba said Sebastian let him know: “Magsasalita lang ako sa presidente.”
Sebastian was the most noticeable name that surfaced in a week ago’s House of Representativeshearing on the illegal drug trade inside the national prison, with kindred inmates connecting him to Senator Leila De Lima. Duterte has labeled De Lima for permitting meth (shabu) to multiply inside the NBP while she was equity secretary.
De Lima, a vocal pundit of Duterte, has denied the connections, saying that Sebastian was an administration asset.
Arriba declined to answer when inquired as to whether this was valid.
Sebastian experienced surgery on Wednesday after the uproar, which left another prominent prisoner Tony Co dead and two others hurt.
Arriba said Sebastian did not have any desire to court the fury of either the past administration or the present one. [source]
