Kerwin Espinosa seeks dismissal of drug charges

The self-confessed drug lord who was netted in Abu Dhabi, UAE in October 2016 sought the Department of Justice to dismiss the drug complainst filed against him and his corespondents who include alleged drug lord Peter Lim by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group’s Major Crimes Investigation Unit (PNP-CIDGMCIU).

Rolan “Kerwin” Espinosa said his statements made in the Senate hearing cannot be used against him.

In his nine-page counter-affidavit, Espinosa pointed out that, “The complainant must be sniffing something than shabu to think that such ‘admissions’ are sufficient for this Honorable Panel to hold that probable cause exists to indict me for Violation of R.A. 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002).”

“In order to prosecute me, the prosecution needs to have the proverbial ‘smoking gun’ – the drugs that would indubitably prove that I am engaged in the prohibited sale of drugs in the country,” his counter-affidavit read.
