High-profile inmate and drug convict Jaybee Sebastian is set to file a case against Senator Leila De Lima and top officials of the New Bilibid Prison for graft, violation of ethical standards for public officials and torture.
The other officials that are a part of the complaint are, Bureau of Corrections Director Rainier Cruz, and New Bilibid Prison Director Superintendent Richard Schwarzkopf.
Sebastian will file the charges before the Office of the Ombudsman because of his transfer to building 14 in the maximum security compound in the New Bilibid Prison despite having threats to his life.
It added that Sebastian’s legal counsel Eduardo Arriba Jr. said his client requested numerous times to the NBP leadership for his transfer but to no avail, despite De Lima’s pronouncement that Sebastian was a government asset.
Arriba said that aside from the stabbing incident that injured Sebastian, the drug lord was also allegedly the primary target in a grenade throwing incident in the NBP that almost claimed his life.
De Lima, will face torture raps for placing Sebastian under solitary confinement and lockdown at Building 14.
