Senator de Lima is once again doing the rounds in the press proclaiming that the alleged Bilibid drug lord Jaybee Sebastian is but a government asset.
De Lima said that Sebastian gave important information to the government against the illegal drug activity inside the National Bilibid Prison.
She added that Jaybee Sebastian was not included in the government raid against the ‘kubols of the so-called Bilibid 19, known drug lords in the NBP.
De Lima also denied insinuations that Sebastian collects money on her behalf and refuses to make any comment further on the issue and instead wants Sebastian to answer for that.
The “Jaybee Sebastian is a government asset”claim of de Lima which many netizens online find ridiculous came after the lady senator has been receiving the flak on social media lately.
Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson reacted on the government asset claim of de Lima as ‘kaduda’!
Lacson said that Jaybee Sebastian should not have been spared from the raid of ‘kubols’ to avoid compromising him as a government asset.
By sparing Sebastian if de Lima’s government asset claim were true, further put him at risk.
(Unintelligible part) Ipapasama ko sa raid yun para di mahalata. Pero kung asset mo, para bang sunog na sunog na, iniwan mo sya dun, sya lang ang naiwang privileged. So it defies yung procedure o yung manner of handling assets. Kasi kung intelligence asset mo, as much as possible ayaw mo siyang ma-burn out! Di ba? Ayaw mong masunog!
Talking of Jaybee Sebastian as a government asset, DOJ Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre called de Lima’s claim stupid!
Secretary Aguirre said if Sebastian is indeed a government asset, his name should not have made it to every investigative agencies list as among the personalities involved in crimes.
If it is true that he was an asset, it is stupid to separate Jaybee from the Bilibid 19 [inmates transferred to NBI after De Lima’s first Bilibid raid.
