Back at you! Aguirre says ‘special privileges’ to high-profile inmates began during De Lima’s time

Reading between the lines, Justice Secretary Vitaliano II claimed that it was actually Senator Leila de Lima herself who gave “special privileges” to high-profile inmate-witnesses from the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).

Referring to Aguirre, De Lima had claimed that “after they testified sa House ni-restore nila yung mga privileges.”

Now, here’s Aguirre’s comeback.

“However, allow me to point out that Senator De Lima used the term ‘restores’, it only means that she is admitting that such privileges that she claims were restored were existing during her time as Secretary of Justice!” pointed out Aguirre.

“She must be referring to her stint as Secretary of Justice when such privileges abounded and were tolerated in the NBP,” he said.

“She must have a lot of spare time to reminisce about her past. You can only reminisce about factual things, things that actually happened,” he added.
