HOR Committee on Justice hearing

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the public will no longer give credence to anything that comes from the mouth of Senator Leila De Lema.

“We should no longer give credence to anything that comes from Senator Leila de Lima as this is from a polluted source, who was accused of drug trafficking by at least 13 witnesses.”

The latest word war between the two came after De Lima’s statement that insists the International Criminal Court (ICC) on the human rights violations related to President Rodrigo Duterte’s Extrajudicial killings.

“We consider her views as rather pathetic attempts to remain relevant and in the headlines, hence, these should not be taken seriously,” Roque said.

The President Spokesperson directed the point of the Senator complain which reflects the lack of her understanding of the principle complementarity in International Law.”

“This is no longer surprising since her professional practice was limited to election laws,” he said.

Roque said “much better off concentrating all her efforts in clearing De Lima’s name in the non-bailable and heinous criminal cases pending against her before the courts instead of engaging in political grandstanding.

Furthermore, as of posting De Lima’s camp has yet responded to Roque’s tirades.
