Amid threats of being charged earlier than the Senate ethics committee for unparliamentary conduct, Sen. Leila de Lima mentioned Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV was an epitome of a gentleman and honorable public servant.
De Lima’s phrases of appreciation got here after the senator deliveried a privilege speech interesting for compassion amongst their colleagues and press for her launch from detention.
“Dear Sonny, I have no words to describe how I feel upon reading the transcripts of your privilege speech yesterday. Tears just kept rolling overwhelmed with emotions about the sincerity and courage of your words and the deep conviction that underlie the same. Tunay kang maginoo at marangal na tao at lingkod bayan. Maraming salamat!” De Lima mentioned in a handwritten observe to Trillanes.
In his speech final Wednesday, Trillanes urged senators them to rally behind and take a stand by wanting into the drug charges hurled at De Lima who’s now on her six month in detention.
He mentioned that each one know deep of their hearts that the senator is just not good, far more a “drug queen” as alleged by President Duterte, including that the state of affairs that De Lima is at present in is a transparent case of political persecution.
