In an interview with with Speaker Alvarez on Wednesday, Sept 28, he said that the riot in the NBP could be associated to the House of Justice Committee investigation into illegal drug trade in the National Bilibid Prison.
Pantaleon Alvared said that there is some people who want to stop the testimoy of Jaybee Sebastian in the House of Justice Committe investigation.
“Apparently there are vigors na ayaw mag testify si Jaybee. Tingnan natin yung motibo kung sino ung ayaw na malaman ang buong katotohanan,” Pantaleon Alvarez said.
Previous NBP inmates who already testified against Leila de Lima pointed to Jaybee Sebastian who is collecting the pay offs from the illegal drug trade in the National Bilibid Prison.
Jaybee Sebastian is the next witness that will testidy against Leila de Lima and Pantaleon found it suspicous that a riot happened targeting Jaybee Sebastian.
“Sa tagal nila sa NBP ngayon lang sila nag-papatayan? Target pa yung intended resource person na na annouce ng House of Committe,” Pantaleon said.
The riot incident happened around 7:30 am, when the fellow inmate, convicted police office Dongail Clarence saw Tony Co, Vicente Sy, and Peter Co is have a drug session inside their cell.
Tony Co went into the cell of Dongail and Sebastian and he attack Dongail with a knife, which started the fight. Peter co is in critical condition while Tony Co was killed.
