Senator Leila de Lima, was arrested Friday morning for having abetted the illegal drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison when she was justice secretary from 2010 to 2015. Arresting officers arrived in front of her Senate office early in the morning (8:00 AM Manila time).

"I will go with them voluntarily," de Lima told reporters. "It is my honor to be jailed for what I am fighting for," she added. "If they think that by jailing me, I will turn my back on my principles, they are mistaken. Instead, they have encouraged me more to pursue truth and justice," de Lima said in a statement.

She's accused of receiving payoffs from convicted drug lords who were able to continue their illegal operations from behind bars while she was justice secretary. The prison facility is managed by the Bureau of Corrections, an arm of the Department of Justice.

Judge Juanita Guerrero of the Muntinlupa City Regional Trial Court Branch 204 issued the arrest warrants for De Lima and her co-accused, former Bureau of Corrections officer-in-charge Rafael Ragos and her former driver-bodyguard Ronnie Dayan for one of the three drug trafficking cases filed by the Department of Justice in relation to her alleged participation in the proliferation of illegal drugs inside the New Bilibid Prison.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II welcomed the development, saying in a television interview that the arrest order was "expected because we filed a strong case."

Citing Ragos' affidavit, the DOJ alleged that De Lima received around P10 million from drug payoffs from November 2012 to January 2013. Ragos said he delivered, along with aide Jovencio Ablen Jr., the money to De Lima's house in ParaƱaque City.

"In December 2012, he (Ragos) received a call to deliver a plastic bag containing money from (convict) Peter Co to Dayan. The bag was left on his bedside at the BuCor quarters. He and Ablen went to the house of De Lima, where he handed the bag to Dayan," the DOJ said in a joint resolution.

"On four occasions in January 2013, he received P1.7 million from Ablen broken down as follows: P1 million, P300,000 and two P200,000, all of which came from inmates. He delivered the money to Dayan at De Lima's house," it added.

Here's the reaction of Senador Leila de Lima on Senate Caucus regarding her arrest warrant, in an interview with Kabayan Noli de Castro on DZMM teleradyo:

De Lima: Ngayon ko pa lang nalaman nang mabasa ko sa dyaryo. Wala pang notice sa atin tungkol sa caucus.

De Lima sa 3 kasong isinampa sa kanya: Natatawa ako sa charges na yan. Para sa akin, it so surreal and unbelievable.

De Lima: Kung kanino man mapunta itong kaso, pag-aralan muna nila 'yan.

De Lima: Kailangan na makumbinsido ang judge, na dapat may jurisdiction at may probable cause. Yan ang nire-raise ng aking mga abogado.

De Lima: Mariin kong tinatanggi ang mga sinasabi nila sa akin.

De Lima: 'Yung mga tunay na dawit sa illegal drug trade ay hindi kinasuhan ng DOJ. Pilit na pilit ang mga alegasyon nila sa akin.

De Lima: Ang gusto muna namin ay ma-dismiss ang mga kaso na ito sa RTC.

De Lima: Ang may jurisdiction dito ay ang Ombudsman at ang Sandiganbayan.

De Lima: Wala po akong kino-commit na acts of persecution.

De Lima: Hinding hindi ko inabuso ang aking kapangyarihan kaya I don't deserve this.

De Lima: Walang basehan ang kanilang kaso.

De Lima: Hinding hindi ako magtatago. Hinding hindi ako tatakas dahil malinis po ang aking konsensya.

De Lima: Huwag naman silang ganyan na masyadong nanggigipit. Alam nila 'yan na ang mga sinampang kaso sa akin ay gawa-gawa lamang.

De Lima sa planong pagpapalaya kay Napoles: Isang kahibangan na naman iyan ng administrasyong ito.

De Lima: Hindi natin alam kung ano ang hidden agenda ng administrasyong ito sa pagpapakawala kay Napoles.

De Lima: Gagamitin na naman siya (Napoles) sa pang iipit ng ibang tao. Maaaring gamitin siya para ako ay ipitin din.

Vice President Leni Robredo called his critics “trolls” and said that she has no time to waste for them.

“I have no message for the trolls because I think it’s a lost cause. It’s a lost cause in the sense that they don’t know me, but they have already made a judgment,” she said in a television interview. When she was asked on GMA News TV to give a message to her critics, the Vice President said there was no point in trying to reach out to those who had closed their minds about her.

Their judgment is not coming from people who know me personally. Perhaps I can give a message to those who have open minds, but most of them have closed their minds, so there’s no point in wasting time on them,” Robredo said.

“Those with open minds are the ones whose comments matter to us, because it allows us to look at ourselves when we commit mistakes,” she said. “It’s also not right to keep getting praise when we are doing wrong,” she continued.

Just Recently, a blogger accused her of living a life of luxury after she had a photo taken with her “personal yoga trainer.” Robredo has shrugged off her online critics, saying she has not even read Uson’s blog. “I would have to admit that I have not read her blog and I don’t intend to read it,” she said at an Inquirer forum in December.

MANILA, Philippines – In the Senate hearing for the probe into the kidnap-slay of a Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo on January 26, 2016 it was exposed that SPO3 Ricky Sta. Isabel, a non-commissioned police officer accused of kidnapping and killing South Korean businessman Jee had a net worth of over P20 million according to the Philippine National Police (PNP).

When Sen. Grace Poe asked Sta. Isabel how much is his salary he said it was only Php8,000 but his wife is earning big money on their business (Insurance and Western Union payment center and a payment outlet) however, he cannot explain how they got the capital for those businesses.

According to Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) chief Director Roel Obusan, Sta. Isabel reported a net worth of over P20 million in 2014, based on PNP records.

In 2015, he had over P17 million in assets, Obusan said. The PNP has no immediate record of his 2016 net worth.

Sta. Isabel owns at least 5 house and lots, a 4-story commercial building, a 3 lots in Caloocan City. He also owns a Hilux, a Vios, and two motorcycles.

As Senior Police Officer 3 (SP03), Sta. Isabel should have a base monthly pay of P25,394, according to data from the PNP. His annual taxable income is over P350,000.

Another Criminal PNP Officers, 3 Korean golfers also ‘tokhang-for-ransom’ victims

Three South Korean tourists who are golfers were a victim of hoodlum Philippine Policemen they robbed and extorted money from them and senior police officer said that they suspected larger racket targeting tourists from these wayward cops.

The announcement fueled fears of police abuse under the cover of President Duterte’s deadly war on crime, after authorities announced last week that policemen murdered a South Korean businessman then extorted money from his wife.

“They came to the Philippines just to play golf but they went through a traumatic experience,” said Chief Supt. Aaron Aquino, a regional police head.

He said the three South Koreans were staying at an upscale gated community in Angeles City, Pampanga province, when policemen barged into their house under the pretext of carrying out an illegal gambling raid last December 30, 2016.

They robbed the Koreans of their computers, jewelry, golf clubs, golf shoes and P10,000, according to Aquino. He said the three South Koreans were then held at a police station for about 8 hours until a friend paid P300,000 for their freedom.

The three victims reported the incident to the South Korean Embassy, which informed the Philippine National Police, Aquino said.

This led to an investigation that found seven policemen were involved, according to Aquino, who said the men faced dismissal from service.

However, he said the offending officers would not face criminal charges because that would require the South Koreans, who had left the country, to return to the Philippines.
“They don’t want to come back. They are terrified,” he said.

The crime happened in the same gated subdivision where policemen abducted a South Korean businessman Jee Ick-joo last October. He was abducted in a fake antidrug operation he was strangled to death inside Camp Crame, the PNP national headquarters in Quezon City, but his wife, thinking he was alive, later paid about P5 million in ransom.

PNP Chief Dela Rosa identified the seven policemen as PO3s Arnold Nagayo, Gomerson Evangelista, and Roentjen Domingo; PO2s Richard King and Ruben Rodriguez; and PO1s Jayson Ibe and Mark Joseph Pineda, all assigned to Angeles City police station.

New Modus: Fake LTO Victimizing Motorist

There are criminals in the street of Metro Manila who are pretending to be officers from Land Transportation Office (LTO) and they are victimizing motorist. Feliz Marie Galpao posted that she was almost victimized by a fake LTO officer. She narrated that the suspect has been following them along Makati – Magallanes route and they failed to take him seriously because he’s not wearing proper uniform and he's just wearing jacket.

"We were along Makati – Magallanes when this “LTO guy” motioned us to stop. When we opened the window he was already shouting at us. Galit na galit, kanina pa daw nya kami pinapahinto pero “tinatakbuhan” namin sya. Yes, nakita namin sya before BUT we did not realize na pinapara nya kami. We were not paying attention to him since he does not look like an officer at hindi kita ang uniporme. He was wearing a jacket! Hindi talaga namin napansin”. Ms. Galpao narrated.

The fake officer was angry because they failed to stop, Ms. Galpao asked if there's a problem.

“He told us: “Nakita ng supervisor ko na sira ilaw nyo sa likod, pinahabol kayo sakin, kanina pa ko sumisenyas tas tinakbuhan nyo ko!”. Galit na siya at matapang.”

However, when Ms. Galpao asked for mission order and ID, the fake officer cannot show anything to prove that he’s indeed an LTO officer. He just started to rant to his victims and even challenged them to call the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte.

“Tawagan nyo pa presidente!” and “Taga LTO ako, alam ko mga ganito” etc. Pinipilit nya kami na tinakbuhan namin sya. Nag-sorry kami sa kanya dahil hindi namin talaga sya napansin”.

She also recorded a cellphone video of the suspect who insisted that his victims trying to flee from him, but it has now been set to private.

The victims wanted to avoid more trouble and not escalate the situation surrendered her driver’s license to the suspect, but the fake officer didn’t gave any ticket to them. Luckily, a real Skyway Patrol Officer showed up clarified that the suspect is not their member and only trying to extort money from other people. They also got their license back from the suspect.
