The Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court junked the appeal of the Department of Justice to consolidate the three case filed against Senator Leila De Lima, and two others.

The said petition was filed by the prosecution last February 27, and was junked by Muntinlupa RTC judge Juanita Guerrero.

The lady senator is currently being detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center amid fcing charges on her alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison.

In line with this, the Muntinlupa RTC already raffled the three cases filed against De Lima to branches 204, 205, and 206.  The DOJ meanwhile, insists that these cases came from the same complaints and facts with common issues and people involved.
