Lagot! Duterte says govt has strong drug cases vs De Lima to guarantee conviction


President Duterte is confident Senator Leila de Lima will be convicted of drug charges filed against her by the Department of Justice.

The President said he believes the justice department has prepared strong cases against De Lima to prove her involvement in the drug trade inside the state penitentiary.

“She has to face the music. Actually ilang testigo yun at it took months to develop the case. Alam naman ng Pilipino ‘yan. Alam ng Pilipino na ganun talaga ang istilo niya,” Duterte told reporters in Davao City.

When asked if the cases against De Lima are strong, Duterte replied: “Ah oo. Biro mo siya lang nag-deny, lahat tinuturo siya.”

A video clip of the President’s interview was shared on Twitter by DZRH.
