LIVE: Justice committee hearing on Bilibid riot
Bookmark to watch at 9:30 am (Manila time)
MANILA, Philippines – We're back to the Bilibid hearings.
The House of Representatives' justice committee on Wednesday, November 16, is conducting yet another probe into the goings on in the New Bilibid Prison – a month after it ended a similar investigation that found "sufficient evidence" against Senator Leila de Lima.
This time, the congressional probe will focus on the riot that broke out in New Bilibid Prison last October, the exclusion of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group from a government raid of the maximum security compound in 2014, a catering service under ex-Bureau of Corrections head Rafael Ragos, and an arrest warrant for Ronnie Dayan, De Lima's former driver and ex-boyfriend.
