Senator Leila De Lima Freed at last

FilObserver aims to be the top most in mind when it comes to Philippine and Asian news, culture, information and opinions.

After six long years in prison, former Senator Leila de Lima is now free to rebuild her life. Her freedom comes from a successful bail petition to the court hearing her last drug case. The court granted her and three other co-accused freedom after posting a 300,000 peso bail.

Interviewed, De Lima thinks her freedom vindicates her from all the vile bile she got from the camp of former president Rodrigo Roa Duterte. De Lima says her legal team is mulling filing criminal cases against her prosecutors.

One of her prosecutors, former DOJ secretary Vitaliano Aguirre III, has not commented about De Lima’s release. No one knows where Aguirre is after losing a political contest in his home province. Maybe he’s fixing his hair.

Everyone wants to know whether De Lima will seek justice at the very top of a political mafia run by no less than Mr. Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Duterte is at it again— making threats here and there– to show the world how ruthless he might be against his political enemies. Under Speaker Martin Romualdez’s leadership, Congress issued a resolution against Duterte’s antics.

One of Duterte’s antics is his threat to kill Congresswoman Castro– the nationalist legislator behind the successful campaign to deprive Vice President Sara Duterte of her proverbial cash cow cum intel funds.

Asked whether she had already forgiven the former madman of the Republic, De Lima flatly said no. And who would?

The fact is, it is not just De Lima who was victimized by the repressive, evil, and utterly unpatriotic administration of the former strongman of Davao. Several thousands of Filipinos whose kin got killed during Duterte’s tokhang campaign will get justice, eventually.

As for De Lima, she went straight to her 91-year-old mother and also paid her respects to Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan. Afterward, who knows what’s in her mind?
