For Senator Leila De Lima, the latest claim of Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre that she and fellow Senator Antonio Trillanes IV are involved in the stabbing of high-profile inmate Jaybee Sebastian inside the New Bilibid Prison is just a lie and a new propaganda against her.

According to De Lima, she and Trillanes are being blamed by Aguirre on his failure to solve the said incident.

De Lima added that the scuffle inside the NBP happened because of its inefficient officials, including Aguirre himself; even with the presence of hundreds of Philippine National Police-Special Action Force members.

The lady senator said that the administration is behind the stabbing and alleged torture of some of the high-profile inmates inside the NBP, forcing them to testify against her.
