I was coerced to falsely testify against Leila De Lima to Jail her

“The outgrowth of femisecution is the aestheticization of violence against women,” says FPMag contributer Dr. Kathy Poon.

Global Shero Leila De Lima is jailed unlawfully by the Philippines Duterte regime, for over 5 years says a witnesses’ lawyer.

Leila De Lima in a Philippines prison since 24 February of 2017, was jailed illegally, according to a prosecution witness’s lawyer, attorney Michael de Castro, the legal counsel of prosecution witness Rafael Ragos, who on 28 October 2022, went before a judge and recanted all his evidence against former Philippines Senator Leila De Lima saying that Former Duterte Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II had threatened to bring a false case against Rafael Ragos for drug trafficking in the midst of the Duterte EJK campaign against drug users. Ragos first swore an affidavit in April, recanting his evidence but the Court ruled the recantation was not sufficient.

Vitaliano Aguirre says he never coerced Ragos to make false statements against Leila De Lima

“All of my allegations to the contrary in my affidavits and House and court testimonies are all fiction, false, and fabricated,” Rafael Ragos, former officer-in-charge of the Bureau of Corrections told a Muntinlupa court on 28 October 2022.

“In an affidavit dated March 2017, I stated that the money I delivered to Ronnie Dayan and Sec. De Lima on November 24, 2012, and December 2012 both amounted to five million pesos (about $85.000 USD) each and that the person who called me on the phone was Bilibid inmate Hans Tan who said that the money came from Peter Co and was Sec. De Lima’s share in the drug trade.”

“I now hereby declare and make known to the whole world that there is no truth whatsoever to any of these affidavits or House and court testimonies, or any other statement made in the media or other investigatory proceedings, including the Senate and the DOJ, on the delivery of monies to Sec. De Lima or Ronnie Dayan in whatever amount,” said Ragos.

“There was never any money delivered to my quarters. Even if there was, I would have immediately conducted an investigation and filed a case against the responsible individuals, instead of following the instructions of an unknown caller or Hans Tan to deliver a package like an ordinary messenger.”

“As far as I know and based on my professional relationship with Sec. De Lima, she is incapable of doing anything illegal, much less engage in the illegal drug trade or accept money from Bilibid inmates,” said Ragos.

“I was forced to execute the above affidavits and deliver the above House and court testimonies against Sec. De Lima and Ronnie Dayan due to threats of being detained myself for the crime of engaging in the illegal drug trade that I did not commit.”


“Philippines Senator Leila de Lima, elected in 2016, is still held in prison since February 2017, in Manila for her criticisms of the Philippines’ women-hating, murderous dictator Duterte,” says Karinna Angeles, a nurse from Manila.

Leila Norma Eulalia Josefa Magistrado de Lima is a Filipino lawyer, human rights activist, senator and law professor. She is a known critic of the thousands of extrajudicial killings of mayors, clergymen, activists, homeless, poor, and drug users by the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. In February 2017, days after garnering international awards for her campaign against extrajudicial killings in the Philippines, she was arrested. She has been imprisoned without bail since 02/2017. Her successor critic, a Senator Trillanes recently dodged imprisonment on a similar attempt by the sitting President which failed.
