High-profile inmate Herbert “Ampang” Colangco will testify against Senator Leila de Lima in the Congresional inquiry next week on her alleged involvement of illegal drugs in Bilibid Prison.
This was said by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II last Friday.
Colangco is a convicted robber and drug dealer who have been mentioned by President Rodrigo Duterte in his drug matrix of illegal drug operations in the country’s major prison facility.
Colangco is said to manage to continue operations despite incarceration. He even managed to shoot music videos inside prison and donated money to the prison’s hospital.
Aguirre said there are 10 to 12 high profile inmates that will testify against De Lima and Colangco is one of them.
“They have agreed to testify,” he said but pointed out that there are no agreement in exchange for their testimony.
