The Justice Department will release on Monday, February 13, 2017 its resolution on Senator Leila de Lima's cases of drug trafficking filed against her.
Delima said, "I've been preparing for a worst case scenario kasi katuparan lang po 'yan ng matagal nang inuutos ng Pangulo. Di ba matagal na niyang sinasabi that he wants me locked up in jail".
President Duterte has revealed that De Lima was involved of corruption during her term as Justice Secretary under former President Benigno Aquino III.
Cases of drug trafficking were filed against De Lima by the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), former National Bureau of Investigation deputy directors Reynaldo Esmeralda and Ruel Lasala, the NBI, and convicted drug lord Jaybee Sebastian.
Another case was also filed against De Lima in connection with Eastern Visayas drug lord Kerwin Espinosa's drug operations.
The cases comes from claims that De Lima incouraged the illegal drug trade in the New Bilibid Prison and received bribes from convicted drug lords to fund her campaign when she ran for senator.
