Senator Leila De lima has earlier denied allegations tagging her as drug lords protector even after the Department of Justice revealed witnesses who appeared to be staffs of the former DOJ secretary.
Documents from NBI show a P24 million cash deposits by Delima’s former clerk, Edna Bogs Obuyes. Obuyes is under probe now by NBI. Justice secretary Vitaliano Aguirre III believes that Obuyes could not have an enormous amount of money considering her salary as clerk.
Cash deposit slips showed that the alleged deposits were made on March 7, 2014 (P4.8 million), March 21, 2014 (P7.2 million), April 4, 2014 (P2.6 million), April 18, 2014 (P4.8 million) and April 24, 2014 (P4.6 million).
