Instead of urgent President Rodrigo Duterte to launch Sen. Leila de Lima, these searching for her launch – particularly foreign groups – ought to respect the Philippine legal justice system.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson harassed this Friday as he identified everybody ought to “understand and respect” the Philippine legal justice system.
“The judiciary is independent of the executive and legislative branches. The same goes true, and even worse, in the case of foreign organizations and groups that are calling for her immediate release,” he stated.
As such, he stated they “have no business in arrogantly asking our president to release Sen de Lima.”
“That’s totally uncalled for,” he added.
Lacson additionally stated the Senate “cannot and will not” intrude with the courts that he stated have jurisdiction over de Lima’s drug-related circumstances.
On whether or not the Senate would take up the matter in a caucus, he stated, “No way.”
