Detained Sen. Leila de Lima lastly heard the issues she “longed to hear” throughout the Senate probe on drug smuggling on the Bureau of Customs (BoC) final Thursday.
“Senator (Ping) Lacson confessed it was hard for him to hear his son falsely accused. Chair Dick (Gordon) reminded Senator (Antonio) Trillanes that ‘everybody has rights here,’” she stated.
“Senator (Manny) Pacquiao went on the record to say two things: one, when someone says, ‘Sabi nila sa akin’ that is not sufficient evidence to adjudge a person guilty; and two, hindi porke may picture ang isang public figure kasama ang isang tao, ay ibig sabihin kasama na sya sa transaksyon ng taong iyon,” she stated.
De Lima was in a position to monitor the listening to on the reception space of the Philippine National Police detention middle in Camp Crame.
But de Lima stated that the kids of Lacson and President Rodrigo Duterte have been fortunate regardless of being accused falsely not like the victims of extrajudicial killings who have been summarily judged by bloodthirsty cops.
“Ano pa kaya ang nararamdaman ng mga magulang ng mga batang napatay dahil napagbintangan din? Mabuti pa ang mga Lacson at Duterte sons and son-in-law, may tagapagtanggol at makakapagpaliwanag sa harap ng buong bayan. Yung iba, sa morgue na ang tuloy. Dito natin siguro makikita na ang tunay na ‘kasalanan’ ni Kian ay hindi naging Senador o Presidente ang tatay nya,” stated de Lima.
