Former Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda tried to raise the spirits of detained Senator Leila de Lima on her birthday, saying he hopes she will quickly regain her freedom.

“You were smeared for speaking out, imprisoned for being a gadfly. All seem dark but one day, truth will set you free! Happy Birthday Leila!” Lacierda tweeted.

De Lima spent her 58th birthday in detention on the PNP custodial heart, saying her birthday want was vindication from the trumped-up drug involvement charges filed by the Duterte authorities towards her.
