BINASURA! MALACANANG DISMISSED THE PETITION OF DE LIMA AGAINST DUTERTE
Senator Leila de Lima has filed a writ of habeas data petition against President Rodrigo Duterte, but Malacanang dismissed the filed case.
"Senator Leila de Lima is apparently playing the gender card as a shield against mounting evidence of her ties with high-profile drug lords and the proliferation of drug trade in the Bilibid," said Presidential Spokeperson Ernesto Abella.
"By portraying herself as a victim she seeks to distance herself from the intimate relationships which were also intertwined with drug trafficking while she was DOJ (Department of Justice) secretary," he added.
The Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo also expressed his opinion.
"The complaint is she's being harassed. She's not being harassed. Moreover, the president is immune from suit but even if he is not, the petition has no basis in fact nor in law," Panelo said. [source]
