De Lima asks protection from Supreme Court: "Duterte is killing me."

The controversial senator asked for protection from the Supreme Court after filing charges against the president.

On Monday, Senator Leila De Lima requested the Supreme Court for legal protection after filing charges against President Rodrigo Duterte for his government's efforts continuing to involve her in illegal drug trades.

The senator filed for a habeas data, which is a legal remedy to secure information about a person whose life is at risk.

"Ang sinampahan ko ng kaso ay si Rodrigo Roa Duterte, hindi ang Pangulo ng ating bansa. Nagkataon lang na ang isa sa mga maskarang isinusuot ni Rodrigo Roa Duterte ay ang maskara ng pagka-Pangulo ng ating bansa," she said.

"Si Rodrigo Roa Duterte ang aking sinampahan ng kaso dahil sa kahindik-hindik, karimarimarim at kasuklam-suklam na mga hakbang at pananalita niya laban sa akin -- mga pananalita na walang kinalaman sa kanyang tungkulin bilang Pangulo, kahit na pilit niyang ginagamit at sinasamantala ang posisyong iyan para maisakatuparan ang kanyang personal na pagnanasa na parusahan ako," she added.

"He started doing to me what was done to victims of extra-judicial killings. He was killing me, not even figuratively, but literally. He even admitted it, he wanted to drive me to suicide," De Lima said.

The embattled senator also expressed her eagerness to fight back against Duterte's faction.

"Rodrigo Roa Duterte, you are right about one thing, yes, I'm a fighter. And this is me taking my stand, fighting. You call me a slut, a woman of the world -- yes, I am a woman, a strong woman who will not allow an insecure man to destroy [me]," she addressed to Duterte.

"You cannot make me regret not turning blind, deaf and mute in the face of corruption and gross violation of human rights. In defiance of you and your brand crass of misogyny, which is as of this moment poisoning the minds of our people, I will stand my ground," she added.
