Alleged Video of Senator Leila De Lima Singing in Herbert Colangco’s Birthday Party

An alleged video of Senator Leila De Lima where she sings during a birthday party of Herbert "Ampang" Colangco has making rounds on social media.

Ampang had been tagged in several bank robberies in Metro Manila since the early 2000s and a suspected big time drug lord.

During the time of De Lima as a DOJ secretary, she leads an operation to expose the fancy "kubol" of Colangco in New Bilibid Prison where they discovered huge speakers, a flat screen TV, a keyboard and a drum set- all of these are prohibited.

They also found out that the celebrant can leave the prison for a concert in a hotel in Pasay City on September 2014.

Now this video wonders the netizens why the Senator who was a Justice Secretary who exposed the lavish living of inmates inside Bilibid is  seen singing, mingling with Ampang.

Although, it is not yet confirmed that the guy in black sunglasses is really Colangco as believed by some netizens.

UPDATE. The viral video clip believed to be De Lima singing in jail and the guy in black sunglasses as Colangco were false.

Leila disaffirms the notion from some netizens who speculated that she sings during the birthday party of a suspected drug lord.

Through her chief of staff, Philip Salaliwa, the senator denied the allegation and that the video was taken during her own birthday party at DOJ quadrangle last August 2015.

And the guy who is claimed to be Ampang who bumped elbows with her is Congressman Alfred Vargas.

In a text message to GMA, alfred clarifies that it was him, the guy who wear sunglasses- because he has sore eyes at that time.

"I had sore eyes that time so I had to wear sunglasses and could not properly shake hands with everybody.I hope this statement clarifies matters to all parties concerned and brings us closer to the truth,"Cong. Vargas in a text message.

The former DOJ secretary was accused to be protector of drug syndicates when she pushed for a resolution in the Senate to investigate the rising number of people killed involved in drugs following Duterte's anti-drug campaign.
