MANILA - Suspected drug lord Kerwin Espinosa said Friday morning said he does not wish to comment yet on his alleged connection to Senator Leila de Lima.

Asked about his photo with the senator, Espinosa said he will answer in the presence of his lawyer.

"Masagot ko 'yan pag ano na ang lawyer ko," Espinosa said.

(I will answer that when I’m in the presence of my lawyer.)

Pressed for an answer, the suspected drug lord said he does not want to comment yet.

"No comment muna ako diyan," he said.

De Lima earlier said she expects Espinosa to tag her in his alleged drug deals.

De Lima believes it is a part of the current administration's plan to destroy her.
