Herbert Colangco Reveals Sen. De Lima Received P3 Million Per Month as Payola

Convicted drug lord Herbert Colangco revealed on his signed affidavit that the former Justice Secretary and current senator of the Republic, Sen. Leila De Lima received at least P3 million per month as payola from his group, the Carcel Side, a coalition of gangs of inmates from the Visayas and Mindanao.

Carcel side is one of the two factions of inmates inside the national penitentiary with over 7,000 members most of them belongs to Oxo Allied Group. The other faction inside the Bilibid is the Presidio side headed by fellow VIP inmate and drug convict Jaybee Sebastian with over 5,000 members. Most members of the Presidio side came from Luzon.

According to Herbert Colangco on his affidavit leaked by The Star online, in the four-page affidavit signed by Colangco he explained that the P3-million amount was for "payola" to then DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima, "para sa pribilehiyo sa amin at para maipagpatuloy din ang mga negosyo sa Bilibid."

Colangco added further that "Sa tantiya ko po, ang umiikot na halaga ng droga sa loob ng Bilibid sa pagpayag ni secretary De Lima bago pa kami ilipat sa NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) ay hindi bababa sa limampung milyong piso (P50-million) kada buwan" bared by the only Bilibid recording artist.

The robbery and drug convict, Herbert Colangco confessed also that he ventured into selling beer inside the Muntinlupa Prison during De Lima's time. He noted that he was allowed to sell beer in can to thousands of inmates during events at NBP for more than 10 times the original price per can and he would earn P3 million for 300 boxes.

“Ang share ni secretary De Lima sa pag-aapruba sa pagpasok nito ay P1 million. Ito po ay dinadala ng tao kong si Rey sa DOJ o kinukuha ng tao ni secretary De Lima na si Joenel Sanchez (kasama sa security ni De Lima) at ng kanyang boyfriend na si Ronnie Dayan.

The head of the notorios Ozamiz robbery gang, Herbert Colangco also recalled that when he and other high-profile inmates were transferred to the NBI in 2014, Jaybee Sebastian then had a monopoly of illegal drug trade and other illicit activities inside the NBP.

“Ang hindi susunod sa kanyang gusto ay tinatakot na ipapatapon. Naniniwala ang mga tao sa loob ng Bilibid na pwedeng gawin ito sa kanila ni Jaybee Sebastian dahil alam nila ito ay malapit kay secretary De Lima lalo na sa boyfriend nito na si Ronnie Dayan," Colangco stated.

(Those who will defy him were warned to be thrown away. People in the NBP believe that he is capable of doing that because he is known to be close with secretary De Lima, especially with her boyfriend Ronnie Dayan),” he added in the sworn statement signed last Sept. 1.
