"None whatsoever. Wala akong pera," Aguirre said. "They (inmates) believe in the war on drugs campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte and they trust me and my team."
The DOJ has already lined up 10 to 12 convicted drug personalities along with officials and agents of the NBI as witnesses against Sen. De Lima in next week's House investigation on the proliferation of the illegal drug trade in the national penitentiary during her watch as a justice chief.
Sen. De Lima is expected to snub the September 20 hearing, citing interparliamentary courtesy.
"Very credible yan. Hindi ka maaaring mag-coach ng 12 testigo na nagkakatugma tugma ang kanilang sinasabi," Aguirre said.Aguirre also disclosed that 2 witnesses who claimed to have personally delivered the drug proceeds to Sen. De Lima's house in Parañaque were from the NBI.
He said the money was part of De Lima's campaign kitty for the 2016 elections in May, where she took the 12th and final ticket to the Senate.
"Sila (inmates) ang inatasan ni (convicted drug lord and NBP inmate) Jaybee Sebastian na magsimulang magbenta ng droga at yung pinagbenta dyan kinukuha ang kontribusyon para daw sa candidacy ni De Lima, simula pa 2013," Aguirre said.
