Muntinlupa RTC orders Arrest of Sen De Lima

De Lima arrested, De limaw arrested

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.
