Karmic justice? Katrina Ponce Enrile says De Lima shamed, persecuted politikos too
Senator Leila De Lima is getting a dose of her own medicine after becoming the latest target of President Duterte’s “name and shame” campaign.
In a Facebook post, businesswoman Katrina Ponce Enrile reminded De Lima that she also engaged in shame campaign and persecution of politikos, including her father former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, when she was secretary of the Department of Justice.
The elder Enrile is one of the three senators vigorously pursued and charged De Lima for alleged involvement in the pork barrel scam.
“Senator De Lima forgets that when she was the Secretary of Justice she knew full well that she shamed some political individuals, one of whom was my father without abandon. She knew that the cases she filed were less than forthright. She knew Benhur Luy forged their signatures. Yet she persisted. She handpicked a few Senators to persecute publicly and she was relentless,” she said.
“I do not wish any ill on the Senator but, just saying that she also did the same thing when she was in power,” added Enrile.
