Jaybee Sebastian wants to tell all to Duterte, his lawyer says

Bilbid inmate Jaybee Sebastian, who got hospitalized after he was stabbed, wants to tell all to President Rodrigo Duterte, his lawyer said.

In an interview with CNN Philippines, Atty. Eduardo Arriba said his client wishes to speak to the President and disclose everything he knows about the illegal drug trade at the national penitentiary.

Here's a video of the report:

This afternoon, Duterte left for a two-day official visit to Vietnam but the trip might be cut short because of Sebastian's wish.

Sebastian, who was convicted and sentenced for kidnapping and carnapping, sustained injuries in a stabbing incident during a riot at Building 14 of the maximum security compound on Wednesday morning, September 28.

He was rushed to the Medical Center of Muntinlupa City and is now in stable medical condition. However, Sebastian reportedly feared for his life and has requested the Bureau of Corrections to transfer him to another hospital for his safety.

The Commando Gang leader has been summoned by the House of Representatives to the congressional hearing on the alleged illegal drug trade at the Bilibid during the term of then justice secretary Leila De Lima.

There have been speculations that the senator wanted to "silence" Sebastian to bar him from testifying against her.
