WATCH! De Lima At Trillanes Ang Mastermind Sa Panunuhol Ng Testigo Laban Kay PRRD!
Liberal Party supporter turned whistleblower Guillermina Barrido Arcilla has surfaced on Wednesday, claiming that she was promised a total of P1-million bribe in executing an affidavit against President Rodrigo Duterte by his vocal critics, senators Antonio Trillanes IV and Leila De Lima.
Arcilla who claims to be the niece of city councilor Pilar Braga, was offered P500,000 upon signing the affidavit implicating Duterte in illegal drug trade and another P500,000 if she testifies in the International Criminal Court.
Arcilla also revealed that retired policeman Arthur Lascañas and self-confessed Davao Death Squad hit man Edgar Matobato received the same offer.
Arcilla said Trillanes and the Liberal party were now trying to use the drugs angle because the the issue of extrajudicial killings no longer sells with the public.
“Nagtanong ako bakit drugs. Kasi nga hindi na daw maniniwala ang mga tao sa EJK. So dapat, yung drugs naman,” she said.
Arcilla said she only agreed to support the Liberal Party because of a single incident in December 2015 when Duterte had failed to act on a favor she asked of him.
Arcilla said she and Duterte were never very close, but she had a direct line to him through his aide, Christopher “Bong” Go.
The former LP supporter also revealed that she received varying amounts of money throughout her time as a “paid critic.” She claimed Fr. Albert Alejo, SJ once left her envelope containing P 20,000 as payment. In other instances, her payment would be folded among tissue papers in restaurants where she, Alejo and Matobato’s lawyer, Atty. Jude Sabio would eat.
Arcilla also claimed she met De Lima and Trillanes in person when she went to Manila in December 2016. She said De Lima had assured her that she would be well taken cared of, just like Matobato.
It was also around this time that she met Lascañas and Matobato where they all stayed in two convents in Manila. She claimed she was prevented from speaking with anyone.
She said she was provided with a rehearsed script of what she was supposed to say to the sisters.
Arcilla said Trillanes made her record rehearsed conversations on the phone as evidence on November 2016 should she turn on them.
