Former Ateneo Law School Professor, ex-congressman, and now Negros Island Region (NIR) judge Alipio Morales said Senator Leila De Lima is in danger of losing her senate seat following the admission of actress Rosanna Roces that the latter brought female escorts inside the New Bilibid prison.
During an interview by Radyo Agong, Morales – a lawyer for 47 years said the evidence to file charges against the senator were already more than enough, but Roces’ admission painted a clearer picture.
“Alam man ni Osang o hindi na pwede syang kasuhan sa sinabi nya sa social media, alam naman natin na hindi siya nagsisinungaling or nagyayabang lang. Sino ba naman ang magyabang pa sa ganito ka seryosong kaso?”, Morales said.
“Yong pag-amin ni Roces na nagdadala sya ng babae e maraming pwedeng kasuhan dun administratively. Yong droga hindi pa e kasi maraming contradicting testimonies among witnesses. E itong klay Osang napakalinaw na kapabayaan ng mga namuno ron”, Morales added.
I think Secretary Aguirre can now file charges against the responsible people, and of course including Sen. De Lima. With this status, I think there is no escape for her”, Morales said.
Roces, in a Facebook post under her real name Jennifer Cruz Adriano, vehemently denied theclaims of Nonile Arile, a self-styled government asset, that she had been a mistress of Vicente Sy, one of four high-profile inmates who were injured at a stabbing incident at New Bilibid Prison (NBP) last week.
“Paanong magiging mistress [ako] eh babae ang dinadala ko ke Enteng?” Roces asked, adding that she only served as a “manager” of prostitutes for some of the inmates. “Kada hatid ko ng babae ay 25k ang binibigay sa akin. Kahit na reject pa ang babaeng dalhin ko.”
“Kung naging mistress ako, ‘di sana nabayaran ko ang P2 million na talo ko sa kaso sa GMA. Hindi na sana ako nagpapakahirap magtrabaho ngayon. Baka producer na ako. Hindi droga ang business ko sa bilibid: Monterey, taga deliver ng karne. Isang tao lang ang kausap ko doon, iyong sinasabi nilang si Vicente Sy. Madaling magtahi ng kwento pero mahirap ang magpatunay.”
Roces also admitted to have performed inside the correctional facility with April Boy Regino and sexy singer Selina Sevilla, which allowed him to meet the likes of Jaybee Sebastian, another high-profile inmate.
“Other than that wala na akong naging dahilan para bumalik. Lalo na nung ang huling nadala ko palang babae ay maysakit,” she said.
Arile, a former policeman who was convicted of kidnapping and murder, earlier told a House inquiry that Roces had an affair with Sy.
“Kabit niya ang artista na si Rosana Roces, alyas Osang,” Arile said.
Morales also added that Roces could face charges on anti-human trafficking.
