President Rodrigo Duterte launches a scathing attack on Senator Leila de Lima a week before she leads a congressional inquiry into alleged extrajudicial killings in the administration's war on drugs.
Though he did not name her at any point in his speech, President Rodrigo Duterte had anything but kind words for Senator Leila de Lima on Wednesday, August 17, during the Philippine National Police (PNP)’s 115th service anniversary in Camp Crame.
Duterte did not name De Lima but dropped heavy – and obvious – hints that he was referring to her when he chastised a "senator" for “complaining” about the ongoing campaign against illegal drugs.
The President attacked the former justice secretary ahead of the Senate probe into instances of alleged summary killings during anti-illegal drugs operations by police, which De Lima would lead as chair of the Senate committee on justice.
