From the Presidential Spokesperson – On Senator Leila De Lima’s latest remarks


We do not need to know the true nature or character of the person to ascertain and establish what she is capable of doing.

We just have to look at Senator Leila De Lima’s drug cases which were based on the testimonies of credible witnesses and documentary evidence.  The gravity of the accusations hurled against her runs contrary to the incorruptible character she falsely portrayed when she was DOJ Secretary.

The Palace statements about the lady senator are information in relation to her position and conduct as a government official and public officer.

We find nothing more unchristian than performing an action which counters the demeanor of a public official which Senator De Lima did when she arrogantly applied selective justice to the political opposition while enjoying her so-called frailties of a woman.
