The current Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre ll presented witnesses in the House Committee that will prove the involvement of then justice secretary de Lima in her linkages in drugs especially inside the penitentiary.
Meanwhile, Pres. Duterte who verbally spoken on public that she will destroy de Lima publicly is holding on what his words.
