Allies of ex-President Noynoy Aquino are defending former Justice Secretary and incumbent Sen. Leila de Lima from the accusations of the witnesses presented by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II linking de Lima to the illegal drug trade at New Bilibid Prison (NBP) when she was the justice secretary.

Siquijor Rep. Ramon Rocamora, said that 80% of the witnesses’ statements are “hearsay.” “The inconsistencies are so great that it really affects the weight of the evidence… They are still under detention. You know the culture at the penitentiary. They have nothing to lose but everything to gain if they will testify in accordance to what the administration wants. The element of quid pro quo it is still there. You cannot deny that, no matter how much (Aguirre) said that they were not forced or guided,” Rocamora told reporters.

Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat accused that the hearings are just “publicity stunt.” He said these cast a “chilling effect” on critics of the Duterte administration’s antidrug war, a warning “that this is what would happen to you.”

Just to remind everyone that these are the same Congressmen who are are bitter and don't want to stop the "Bottom-up-Budgeting (BUB-oy)" of President Noynoy Aquino were money was use as a political tool by the Aquino government.

Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno scrapped the bottom-up budgeting (BuB) program initiated by the Aquino administration, because it's a "waste of funds" and these same greedy congressmen want these to continue now they are siding with De Lima.

They even have a Facebook Page for their BUB or Pork barrel!
