DE LIMA ACCUSES DUTERTE OF FREEING THE PLUNDERERS - NewspaperPH


Congress might as well do away with the crime of plunder and the antigraft law for being useless following the release from detention of former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, who was allowed to post bail on plunder and graft charges, according to Sen. Leila de Lima. Estrada was accused of conspiring with businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles in funneling his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) from 2004 to 2010 into alleged ghost projects in exchange for P183 million in kickbacks. In a statement, De Lima said: “The exoneration of plunderers under this administration is almost complete.” he Duterte administration’s “trademark impunity” appeared to have reached the judiciary with the Sandiganbayan’s order to release former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, Sen. Leila de Lima said. De Lima raised doubts over the Sandiganbayan Fifth Division’s decision to grant his petition for bail, an appeal the division junked last year under a different set of judges.
