Hontiveros: Stop persecuting De Lima
Senator Risa Hontiveros has rushed to the defense of Senator Leila de Lima after the Senate blue ribbon hearing on the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) mess appeared targeting her.
Hontiveros told De Lima’s critics to stop persecuting the senator and give her a “fair fight.”
“Stop persecuting @SenLeiladeLima! 🏼 give her a fair fight,” she tweeted.
De Lima earlier deplored the way the committee chair Senator Richard Gordon and Senators Panfilo Lacson and Francis Tolentino made the Senate inquiry to target her. Insinuations were made that the former Justice Secretary used GCTA as a money-making venture during her term.
