Furlough granted! De Lima eager to see ailing mom
Senator Leila de Lima is thankful after a local court granted her furlough request to visit her ailing mother in their hometown Camarines Sur.
“Aprubado na po ng korte ang ating inihain na motion for furlough upang mabisita ang aking ina sa aking bayan, sa Iriga,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Lubos po akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong mga panalangin para sa akin at para sa aking Mommy Norma,” said De Lima, currently detained at a police detention center in Camp Crame.
The Muntinlupa court has granted the urgent motion filed by De Lima to visit her 86-year-old mother currently confined at a hospital in Iriga City. President Duterte has posed no objection to De Lima’s request.
