MANILA – De Lima has been named as the Killer of Mayor Espinosa.
“She poisoned him” – Kerwin Espinosa reveals.
Kerwin Espinosa says he has gathered evidence that he would be presenting to the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights.
De Lima, as a member of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights, said she will be present at the committee’s investigation on Wednesday into the killing on November 5 of Mayor Rolando Espinosa of Albuera, Leyte. Mayor Espinosa was the father of Kerwin.
The Senate summoned the younger Espinosa to the Wednesday hearing to shed light into what Senate Committee chairman Richard Gordon called the “premeditated” killing of the mayor. Police claim the mayor was killed in a shootout while in jail.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre earlier told CNN Philippines that he is confident of Espinosa tagging De Lima as among the narco-politicians who protected “big time” drug transactions in Eastern Visayas.
