Funny ka Panelo! De Lima scoffs at Palace’s criticism of US Senate resolution calling for her freedom
Senator Leila de Lima on Sunday claimed that her political persecution is a test case for President Duterte’s attempt “to flex” his tyrannical ambitions.
“The whole world knows that,” De Lima told Presidential Spokesman Salvador in response to the latter’s criticism of the passage of a resolution by a United States Senate panel seeking her freedom.
“Salvador Panelo, the master of disinformation, is calling out critics for allegedly misleading US senators regarding my case? Nakakatawa naman ito,” she said.
De Lima said that Malacañang, “backed up with its troll army, is a veritable mill of massive disinformation campaigns.”
“Wala nang naniniwala sa inyo. Kayo-kayo na lang naglolokohan,” the opposition said in a statement.
“We refuse to partake of the poison-infused rhetoric that the President regularly spews. Sa inyo na lang. No more!” she said.
De Lima added, “Those who are genuinely on the side of truth and justice can never be hoodwinked into believing that we have a fair justice system and a strong vibrant democracy.”
