Iba talaga pag kaibigan! Hilbay scores DOJ for clearing Peter Lim of drug raps
Former solicitor general Florin Hilbay on Tuesday rejected the exoneration Cebu businessman Peter Lim, self-confessed drug distributor Kerwin Espinosa, and several others from charges of illegal drugs by the Department of Justice.
“Friends, allies, useful witnesses are exonerated, while political diss[id]ents are incarcerated on bogus charges,” Hilbay said.
Hilbay stressed the dismissal of charges against Lim and Espinosa, including convicted drug lord Peter Co and other personalities can be considered as “political persecution” of Sen. Leila de Lima.
“The amendment of the charges, the use of disqualified witnesses, dispensing the need for evidence—these are all signs of political persecution in the case of De Lima,” he said.
