Duterte also guilty if ‘guilt by picture’ is new standard.
This sums up the statement of Senator Trillanes when asked by ABS-CBN News for comment on the controversial photo shared between Kerwin Espinosa and Sen. de Lima.
He explained that the Burnham Park photo between self-confessed drug lord Espinosa and then SOJ de Lima is not a conclusive proof that the two had done something illegal.
“Pumunta ka ng Baguio, nandoon si Senator De Lima. She attended some conference at nagpa-picture ka. Ngayon, meron ka ng pruweba?”
Senator Trillanes argued that if we follow that line of thinking, then Duterte must be held accountable for allegedly coddling a drug personality, since he has at least two photos with suspected Cebu drug lord Peter Lim.
Peter Lim has been named by Kerwin Espinosa during the Senate probe as one of his drug suppliers in the Visayas.
Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson, the vice chairman on the senate committee on public order and justice thrashed Senator Trillanes argument instantly.
In the video, Senator Lacson said that Duterte’s photo with Peter Lim and de Lima’s photo of Kerwin Espinosa are two different things.
May picture si Presidente Duterte kasama si Peter Lim at na-testify si Kerwin na si Peter Lim sa pagtatanong na rin ni Senator Pacquiao…Si Senator de Lima may picture kay Kerwin sa Baguio. Ang kaibahan lang, at kung ganito ang mangyayari dapat pareho ang trato. Ang kaibahan lang, may statement si Kerwin under oath, may statement si Ronnie Dayan nagtugma…na may perang binibigay at napunta kay kanino. Ngayon, kung si Peter Lim ay magbibigay ng affidavit na nagbigay sya ng pera kay Secretary Bong Go ay may statement si Secretary Bong Go na ito ay ibinibigay nya kay President Duterte, I think an impeachment proceeding is in order. Pero wala tayo doon eh, di ba?
