Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Handwritten Notes
Dispatch from Crame Nos. 33 & 34

Dispatch from Crame No. 33

Good job on the part of the DOJ/NBI in successfully investigating and indicting 19 cops led by Supt. Marvin Marcos for the murder of Mayor Rolando Espinosa and co-detainee Raul Yap.

But I remain curious as to the real motive behind the killing of Mayor Espinosa. None of the investigations whether NBI's or the Senate's has established such motive, let alone convincingly.

Let's recall that Supt. Marcos, after having been previously relieved by P/DG Dela Rosa from his Region 8 post, was ordered reinstated by no less than the President thru Bong Go. Why? We never knew the exact story.

May I also ask why up to this very moment, KERWIN ESPINOSA, a confessed top drug dealer in Region 8 and who admitted during the Senate inquiry that he was paying off police officers and other personalities for protection, has not been charged yet for his illegal activities?

What about PETER LIM? Where is he now and whatever happened to the supposed investigation on him?

To DOJ/NBI: Kailan nyo po kakasuhan ang mga yan at iba pang mga tunay na drug trafficker/drug lord? Bakit ako at ako lang, na walang kinalaman sa droga, ang inyong kinasuhan? Kumakatok po ako sa mga konsensya nyo...


Dispatch from Crame No. 34

I AM INNOCENT. I'm not a drug trafficker. I'm not a narco-politician or a drug coddler.

I can say the above a hundred times, a million times, and even a billion times. Because that is the TRUTH.

On the other hand, LIES about me and my alleged drug links, even if spoken a hundred, a million and a billion times, can NEVER become the truth.

Ginoong Pangulo, lubayan nyo na po ako ng inyong mga kasinungalingan at kahibangan.
