MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang is appealing to the minority senators not to influence the judges handling the cases of Senator Leila de Lima.
This is the reaction of Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on the demand of the opposition senators to release the lady senator from her detention through Senate Resolution No. 645.
The lawmaker has been detained for one year over her alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison.
“As to the call of the senators, that’s up to the courts. I hope the senators will not politicize our courts. Let the courts function as they should, free from political interference. I am appealing to the opposition senators, do not influence the judges,” said Roque. — UNTV News & Rescue
