Ayon kay Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, wala raw dahilan upang imbestigahan si Sen. Leila de Lima sa pag-involve nito sa illegal drugs.
“It’s not going to happen,” sabi ni Morales ng tanungin kung papa-imbestigahan si Sen. Leila de Lima.
“Because lahat naman allegations itong mga ito. Wala pa namang lead talaga that would prompt us to initiate our investigation,” dagdag nya.
Inaakusahan si De Lima ng illegal drug operation noong sya pa ang secretary ng department of justice.
Sabi pa ni Morales, nasa DOJ kung mag-coconduct sila preliminary investigation.
“If it’s necessary and if they (DOJ) believe there is reason to conduct further investigation or for us to conduct a preliminary investigation, then the case will come to us,” sabi nya.
“When the case comes to us and if we believe the fact-finding investigation is exhaustive enough to merit our preliminary investigation if there is any crime committed, then we will follow through with it,” dagdag ni Morales.
Ani ni Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, lahat ng preliminary investigation ng DOJ laban kay De Lima ay ifo-forward sa Office of Ombudsman.
