Duterte allegations, everyone knows the scandal except Leila
First, he embarrassed her.
Now, President Duterte just ridiculed Sen. Leila de Lima for feigning innocence about the reported drug dealings of her driver-lover at the Bilibid prisons in Muntinlupa.
“She can have all the time in the world. Gusto ninyo malaman ang totoo? Punta kayo sa Justice department, punta kayo sa (Commission on) Human Rights and validate it,” the President said.
The love affair is an open secret at the justice and human rights departments, he added. “…lover niya na driver niya, siya lang di nakakaalam, alam ng buong bansang Pilipinas, tell her, ‘mam ikaw lang ata inosente,” Duterte said in an interview after visiting soldiers wounded in action in Cotobato.
Duterte even dared enterprising journos to go out and investigate about the affair. ” if you are really enterprising reporter, go to justice department, they will tell you,” he said.
Duterte hinted that he has witnesses from the New Bilibid Prisons who will testify against de Lima. He did not say whether its about the love affair or how the driver wielded power when the senator was still justice secretary.
“One day itong taga bilibid magsasalita,” he said.
