MARCH 12, 2018 – Ibinasura ng mga prosecutor sa Department of Justice (DOJ) ang drug case laban kina Peter Lim at Kerwin Espinosa.

Kabilang din sa mga nabasurang kaso ay laban kina Peter Co, Marcelo Adorco, Max Miro, Lovely Impal, Ruel Malindangan, Jun Pepito at iba pang high profile durg personalities.

Mahina umano ang ebidensya laban sa kanila. Hindi rin daw nakumbinsi ang state prosecutors sa mga tumestigo kaya dinismiss ang kasong paglabag sa Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

Bigo rin daw ang complainant na maipresinta ang circumstantial evidence para patunayan ang iligal na transaksyon ng respondents.

“Indeed, for an evidence to be believed, it must proceed not only from the mouth of a credible witness, but must be credible in itself as to hurdle the test of conformity with the knowledgeable and common experience of mankind,” ayon sa resolusyon ng DOJ.

“To our view, the above discrepancies in [Marcelo] Adorco’s affidavits have seriously impaired their probative value and have casted serious doubts on their credibility. His contradictory statements on important details simply eroded the integrity and veracity of his testimony.”

Inaprubahan ni Acting Prosecutor General Jorge Catalan ang resolution na ito pero dadaan pa kay Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre para i-review.
