Senator Leila M. de Lima has drawn up a list of 13 personalities who should be banned from entering the United States for persecuting her and railroaded her detention for the last three years.

These are:

1) President Rodrigo Duterte
2) Presidential Legal Adviser Salvador Panelo
3) Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez
4) Former Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre
5) Solicitor General Jose Calida
6) Public Affairs Office Chief Persida Acosta
7) Former whistleblower Sandra Cam
8) Anti-corruption crusader Dante Jimenez
9) Former congressman Rey Umali
10) Former congressman Rudy Fariñas.

She also included Duterte Diehard Supporters “trolls” led by Mocha Uson, Sass Rogando Sasot, and RJ Nieto.

Last Sept. 27, US Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin and fellow Democrat Patrick Leahy filed an amendment to the US Fiscal Year 2020 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Bill, and adopted at the Committee level, to deny the entry in the US of any Philippine government official involved in de Lima’s “wrongful imprisonment.”

“Duterte himself took a direct hand in controlling the inmates-witnesses when he ordered their transfer from Bilibid to a military facility,” she said.

In her Dispatch from Crame No. 612, De Lima said US Durbin and Leahy would not stake their names and reputations if they did not vet the circumstances behind her unjust detention and believed in her innocence and causes.

“It will not be presumptuous to assume that these US Senators must have verified the information they receive about my situation with key agencies of the US Government i.e., the US State Department, the Central Intelligence Agency, the US Drug Enforcement Agency, and even the US Embassy here,” she said.

Leahy said the US government has a “responsibility to respond” against Philippine officials who abuse the justice system for political retribution as it provides large amounts of aid to the Philippines.
