“How can the cases on EJKs (extrajudicial killings) and our rights ever be irrelevant?” she requested.
De Lima blamed the Duterte administration the pile of extrajudicial killings on account of its brutal drug conflict in opposition to unlawful medicine within the nation.
De Lima was out of detention to attend a listening to on the disobedience to summons slapped in opposition to her by the leaders of the House of Representatives.
Aguirre earlier stated the detained senator “is just trying to be relevant” when she filed administrative and prison criticism in opposition to him earlier than the Office of the Ombudsman.
