THERE is a possibility that former Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) officer-in-charge Rafael Ragos may face perjury charges after retracting his earlier testimony against Sen. Leila de Lima.
This was the statement of Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra, although he admitted that he has yet to see a copy of the sworn affidavit or statement Ragos made recanting his accusations against the senator.
Guevarra insisted it is clear now that someone lied in the sworn statement from the earlier testimony.
Guevarra said that the National Bureau of Investigation of the Senate or House committee where the deceitful affidavit was made can be the one to file a complaint against Ragos.
He added that Kerwin Espinosa. who was the first to retract his testimony against Sen. de Lima, may also face the same charges.
