Published June 30, 2017 10:36am By KATHRINA CHARMAINE ALVAREZ, GMA News


President Rodrigo Duterte focused on “lies” and “fake cases” during his first year in office, Senator Leila de Lima said Friday.
“Isang taong mga kasinungalingan. Isang taong panggigipit, isang taong pagmumura, pambabastos,” De Lima, who appeared at the Muntinlupa City court over drug-related allegations, told reporters.

“Isang taon mga pangakong napako lalo na 'yung kasinungalingan, fake cases, lalo na itong mga paratang sa 'kin; fake cases, fake news,” De Lima said in a video posted by radio dzBB.
De Lima had repeatedly denied her alleged involvement in illegal drug trade inside the national penitentiary during her stint as Justice secretary in the previous administration.
The senator claimed she was a victim of political persecution, and that Duterte wants to pin her down as revenge for initiating an investigation on the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS). De Lima was the chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights when Duterte was still city mayor of Davao.
In a separate statement, De Lima also criticized Duterte’s bloody war on drugs, saying nothing much has changed in the country’s peace and order situation.
“Makalipas ang isang taon, nasaan na tayo? Nagresulta lang ang inyong ‘War on Drugs’ sa pagpatay at patuloy na pagpatay ng libu-libong Pilipino—karamihan ay mga maralitang walang kalaban-laban, kabilang ang mga inosenteng bata,” De Lima said.
"Itigil na ninyo ang mga patayan! Maaaring magpatuloy ang kampanya laban sa droga nang walang EJK at pag-abuso sa karapatang pantao. Ang tugisin ninyo, sa pamamaraan na sang-ayon sa batas, ay 'yung mga tunay at malalaking drug lords at drug dealers at ang mga protektor nila sa pamahalaan, kapulisan at militar,” she said.
Duterte is set to mark his first year in office by visiting military camps, the location of which he was advised not to disclose to the public. He has however earlier said that he intends to be in Marawi City Friday. —KG, GMA News
