De Lima adheres to Senate, will submit Luy records
MANILA, Philippines—Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said they will comply with the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee’s order to provide them a copy of the hard drive of whistle blower Benhur Luy.
“It is a subpoena. We need to comply,” De Lima told reporters Thursday.
She said she already ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to copy the hard drive since the Senate is only asking for a soft copy.
“I asked the NBI to already make a separate copy of the hard disk because the committee is asking for a soft copy [because] if they want a printed copy, that would be voluminous,” De Lima said.
The hard drive reportedly contains details about the operations of alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles.
