Statement of Sen. Leila M. de Lima on witness Ablen's perjured testimony

Going against the advice of my counsels to refrain from commenting on what transpires in the hearings of my drug cases (and just leave it to my counsels in the course of post-hearing media interviews), I must say this, lest lies persist.

Witness Ablen's narration at yesterday's hearing, in reiteration of his earlier testimony in the House probe, about the alleged delivery of cash to my residence on two (2) occasions in 2012, is pure fiction. These never happened.

Ablen is just another perjured prosecution witness in these fabricated cases.

The ongoing trial is but an encore of the carnival of lies that former SOJ Aguirre and his band of operators had managed to assemble, upon Duterte's orders.
