On Tuesday during De Lima's privilege speech, she mentioned that the witnesses have been forced to testify against her.
However, lawyer Ferdinand Topacio took invalidated the senator's claim and said that the witnesses have not been either blackmailed, threatened, intimated and tortured to implicate her in the alleged proliferation of illegal drug trade at the New Bilibid Prison.
"Also, her ridiculous claims that my clients have been plucked from the National Bilibid Prison to undergo interrogation at the ISAFP facility in Camp Aguinaldo is the stuff of which fantasies are made," he added.
