High profile New Bilibid Prison inmate Jaybee Sebastian testify before the House Committee on Justice and Human Rights on Monday, giving explosive information about the drug proliferation problem inside the maximum security compound.
Sebastian is considered to be the “King of Bilibid” and accused of being close to then justice secretary Leila De Lima.
The inmate detailed how the drug business inside the jail progressed.
Sebastian said he gave a total of P10 million to then senatorial candidate and now Senator Leila De Lima.
“10 million lahat ang naibigay ko, and 2 million ay personal kong inabot sa kanya”, Sebastian said.
He also clarified that most of the money were given through De Lima’s personal body guard, fellow witness Jonel Sanchez.
Sebastian also denied the allegations that he and De Lima has intimate relationship.
He also doubt the relationship between De Lima and Sanchez, saying there seems to be something more than the employee-employer relationship.
The hearing is ongoing at the time of this writing. /Abeb Zubiri/
