Former Sen. Leila De Lima. (File photo by LYN RILLON / Philippine Daily Inquirer) MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the Ombudsman has dropped the bribery case filed against former Sen. Leila de Lima and her former aide, Ronnie Dayan, as it found no probable cause for the accusation. The resolution ordering the dismissal of the case was dated July 22 but was released only on Tuesday, Aug. 9. The resolution said there were glaring inconsistencies in the testimonies provided by the complainant, the Special Investigation Team of the Office of the Ombudsman. De Lima was supposed to have received bribe money – collected by Dayan — from convicted drug dealer Kerwin Espinosa. The inconsistencies, the resolution said, “would prevent a reasonable mind from concluding that the respondents are probably guilty of the offenses charged against them.” The resolution noted that Espinosa testified that it was Dayan who got the money from him. However, government witness Marcelo … [Read more...] about Ombudsman junks bribery case vs De Lima, Dayan
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin D onald Trump has made a lot of investments over his career. One of the flashiest, his purchase of Mar-a-Lago, also turned out to be one of the best. Trump paid an estimated $10 million for it in 1985 and turned it into a moneymaking club, before a rising real estate market made it one of the most valuable homes in the world. Today, the crown jewel of Palm Beach is worth an estimated $350 million. The property, which the former president said the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided on Monday, was historic long before Trump got involved with it. The cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post built the estate from 1924 to 1927, incorporating details befitting the Roaring Twenties. Stones traveled from Genoa, Italy via three ships. Silk-needlework panels came from an old palace in Venice. The living room rug hailed from a Spanish monastery. In 1973, Post passed away, bequeathing Mar-a-Lago, which means “sea to … [Read more...] about How Much Has Trump Made From Mar-A-Lago, His Palm Beach Estate Under Siege?
Screenshot of the Supreme Court main building MANILA, Philippines — The Supreme Court has ruled that the privilege of the writ of amparo is meant to protect victims from the threat of extrajudicial killing, as it upheld a protective order for a woman who lost her husband to the Duterte administration’s war on drugs in 2016. In denying the petition of law enforcers to dismiss the writ, the high court explicitly recognized the death of Christina Gonzales’ husband as an “extralegal killing,” and affirmed the finding of the Court of Appeals (CA) that the widow had good reason to fear for her life. Gonzales’ husband, Joselito, was a suspected drug dealer who was killed in a police operation in Antipolo City in July 2016, shortly after then-President Rodrigo Duterte came into power. The previous administration’s bloody campaign against illegal drugs claimed the lives of thousands of drug suspects, for which Duterte and his subordinates were charged with crimes against humanity in … [Read more...] about SC favors drug war widow, calls PNP ops ‘extralegal killing’
