Senator Leila M. de Lima has once again expressed her disappointment over the three years of President Rodrigo Duterte’s leadership.

For De Lima, it was hard to be satisfied with Duterte’s government because of the alleged killings due to drug war.

No one can be satisfied with this government as long as there is no justice served for the thousands murdered in the drug war and as long as Duterte remains loyal to China and not the Philippines,” the detained senator said in a statement.

“A president who kills his own people and betrays his own country to a foreign power should be impeached, prosecuted, and sent to jail for his crimes against the people and the country. There can be no moral or legal question on that,” De Lima said

“In the end, we will all pay for the six years (and even more) that Duterte has spent destroying this nation,”  she said

De Lima has been detained since 2017 at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame over drug-related charges during her stint as justice chief.

  1. The senator who protects illegal drug trades, partying with inmates who trades illegal drugs, engaged in illicit sexual relationships with different married men, accepts bribes, etc. including those who caused the deaths of children as subjects of dengvaxia vaccine shall be the prime subject for prosecution, not those who were alleged of killing innocent civilians! Got mr Liela De Lima?
