Even De Lima was harassed or not, Senator Ping Lacson believes that the former Department of Justice Secretary should still answer all the allegation against her and face the house probe to defend herself.
“Pang-harass man o hindi ang pinakaimportante masagot niya. Napakahirap i-ignore ang lumabas na testigo sa HOR kasi may pagkakatugma,” Lacson said in an interview on DIWZ radio Saturday, September 24.
Lacson was referring to the recent Congressional Investigation on proliferation of Illegal drugs inside the National Bilibid Prison where VIP inmates who volunteered to become a witness pointed De Lima as their protector.
Even some of the witnesses are convicted criminals, Lacson said that there is also two NBI who testified against the former DOJ Sec and they claimed that they delivered drug money to De Lima.
Lacson said that De Lima must face the investigation and answer all the questions of the congress even she felt harassed.
“Maraming issue na di mo pwede basta i-dismiss. Hina-harass na kung hina-harass, pero kung may ebidensya at may basehan ang ginagawang sabihin nating pagha-harass kailangan talaga masagot,” He added
De Lima said that she or her lawyer would not attend the congressional inquiry because she believes that the only goal of the congress is to destroy her image.
