De Lima Believes She's A Hero For Defending Women's Rights in the Philippines
Senator Leila De Lima believes to herself that she is doing a right thing, making new laws to defend and protect the rights of women against abuses and various forms of violence after the lady senator was imprisoned because of the allegations that she was a drug protector when she was still a DOJ secretary under Aquino administration.
During the Aquino administration, there was a drug proliferation inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City, Philippines, that nobody in the Aquino regime could find out who were those people behind the illegal drug trade and various activities of parties and concerts inside the maximum prison cell.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "Of course, it was very hard to pinpoint those drug lords at the time of Aquino administration since there were allegations of high-ranking government officials who were known as the masterminds and drug protectors of illegal drugs."
A lot of Filipinos became drug addicts, and until now the Duterte administration is doing their good effort to eliminate and end the battle against illegal drugs that have caused many innocent lives in the past.
President Rodrigo Duterte got the green signal of a majority of Filipinos around the world to punish those drug lords and pushers and put them behind bars, if death penalty is not yet reconsidered by the lawmakers.
The plan to bring back the capital punishment in the country is supported by a majority of Filipinos. The law proposed that those who are found guilty of illegal drugs are punishable by death and life imprisonment, depending on the court decision.
