Statement of Undersecretary Francisco Baraan III

05 August 2014

All the allegations of payoff and bribery against me and the Panel of Prosecutors are a complete fabrication.

Lakmodin Saliao's own statements disprove these allegations.

Saliao's claim is a contradiction in itself.

He speaks of a time when I was not yet with the Department of Justice, much less the Supervising Undersecretary of the Ampatuan, Maguindanao cases.

In spite of these  challenges, I remain steadfast and committed to bringing justice in these cases.

I am personally thankful to Secretary Leila De Lima for her categorical expression of support.

I need not say anything further.
