De Lima to younger Espinosa: Duterte’s men will kill you too

Senator Leila De Lima warns alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa three days prior in releasing his statement that he will be killed too like his father.

“This is my advice to Kerwin. Don’t ever think that your ‘cooperation’ will spare you your life. Sooner or later this government is going to make sure you end up like your father. I make the same prediction for Jaybee Sebastian,” De Lima quoted in a statement.

Earlier this month, his father Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa died in an alleged “firefight” while the CIDG and detection group served his search warrant.

It can be recalled that the slain mayor announced De Lima as one of the protectors of his son Kerwin in drug operations in Central and Eastern Visayas and showed photos of De Lima with him in Baguio City last February 2016 to strengthen their ties.

Meanwhile, Jaybee Sebastian alsp accused the lady senator of receiving bribes from convicted drug lords during her term as justice secretary.

De Lima is expecting that Kerwin will also name her on the hearing to be held on the 23rd.

“I would not like to preempt what Kerwin will testify on, but I will also not deny that given everything that the government has thrown at me, it won’t be farfetched that he will just be another of the witnesses to be brought against me in their effort to destroy me,” said De Lima.

She added that she will listen to Kerwin’s testimony and let the people to judge his credibility.
