De Lima: Duterte planned my dismissal


Wala po akong duda na mayroong kinalaman diyan ang ating pangulo."

Senator Leila De Lima rashly blamed President Rodrigo Duterte for her dismissal as the chairman of Commission on Human Rights on Monday. She was leading a probe on the alleged extrajudicial and summary killings amid the war on rugs of Duterte's administration.

"Majority po ng nag-oust sa akin bilang chair ng committee on justice. Wala po akong duda na mayroong kinalaman diyan ang ating pangulo," De Lima asserted in an interview moments after her ouster.

"Bagamat nirerespeto ko po ang aking mga kasamahan, siguro po pwede kong masabi na naiintindihan ko ang ginawa nila pero uulitin ko po yun, imposible po walang kinalaman dito ang ating pangulo," the senator added.

Senator Manny Pacquiao led the proposal and sixteen senators voted to oust De Lima, four voted against it, and two senators abstained.

De Lima claims that Duterte got madder to her after she presented a witness, Edgar Motabato, in the senate hearing last week. Motabato claimed that he was a former hitman of the alleged Davao Death Squad led by Duterte during his mayor days in Davao City.

"Syempre tumindi lalo galit niya. Talaga namang galit sa akin 'di ba? I mean, he was not concealing yung galit niya sa akin when I started nga this inquiry na binastos talaga ako nang husto, may mga binato sa akin na below the belt, may mga statement like you're finished," she said.

"So itong mga ginagawa sa akin, mukhang mga finishing touches yun para sa kanya," she added.

De Lima did not deny that she was really offended when she was ousted from chairmanship even though she will still continue as a member of the committee.

"Talaga naman syempre hindi ko maitatanggi na sobrang masakit ang nararamdaman ko," the senator admitted.
