So, a while back I was wondering why President Duterte came out with a statement warning the AMLC to toe the line or else he’ll make it difficult for them. Just this morning, Jojo Robles connected the dots:
BRODS IN ARMS? who are these two fraternity brothers of Leila De Lima who are running AMLC and who are (according to justice secretary Vitaliano Aguirre) blocking government efforts to investigate her and her reported connections with drug syndicates? One is the deputy executive director and the other is the head of investigations.
“Brods” din ito ni Rep. Rey Umali, the house committee chairman who refused to recommend charges against De Lima after a long and damning investigation of the senator.
