Senator De Lima Blames Gloria Arroyo And PNoy Aquino For Being A Human Rights Advocate
By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Leila De Lima expressed her side of story for being a Human Rights advocate when all she did was to bring back the past and blamed the previous administrations why she still stands today as a Human Rights advocate.
In the statement of Sen. De Lima on Facebook she said "on a personal note, I do not know where all of this will end for me, in the midst of the House inquiry, the Ethics Committee complaint, the election protest, the DOJ persecution, and the President’s attacks. Honestly, this is all the fault of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, when she appointed me as Chair of the Commission on Human Rights, where I learned the value of human life and human dignity, regardless of one’s station in life. This is also the fault of President Benigno S. Aquino III, when he appointed me as Secretary of Justice, where I learned to fight the abuse of power, corruption, and have taken to heart the principle that peace is the work of justice."
Many Filipinos now know that being a true Human Rights advocate is different from being a "drug protector." A lot of reports allegedly showed that during Senator De Lima tenure as a justice secretary, the proliferation of illegal drugs in the Philippines became so evident.
I don't think that Senator De Lima is telling the truth when these new reports said that inmate drug lords linked De lima as a "drug protector" and the one who received monthly millions of pesos allowances from them. Perhaps, in my opinion, she is just using her title as a Human Rights advocate but everyone knows how many times she misled the public.
