Senator Leila de Lima yesterday said powerful personalities whom she investigated during her time as Justice Secretary in the Aquino administration are using President Duterte to exact revenge against her.
As such, De Lima said she will pursue filing charges with President Duterte as her “primary respondent” and House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez whom she said made her life difficult lately.
De Lima did not categorically identify what particular charges she would file against the President but assured she would file it “soon.”
“Alam nyo naman na ang ating Pangulo, mayroon talagang dinidibdib na personal vendetta against me since 2009 so here he is, naging pangulo, vindictive as he is kaya pagkakataon nya ito na balikan ako,” De Lima said during a weekly press conference.
“Definitely. That one is settled already. ’Yung mga kaso na ipa file kasama ang Pangulo because he’s on top of all these. Kagagawan nya ito lahat,” she said. (Hannah Torregoza)
