President Rodrigo Duterte recently dared the newbie Senator Leila de Lima to hang herself and resign from her current post as senator of the county.
“If I were De Lima, ladies and gentlemen, I’ll hang myself… Dapat kang mag-resign. Sa pinapakita mo, you resign,” Duterte said during his recent visit on PO1 Nestor Villanueva at St. Paul Hospital in Tacloban City.
Duterte said the statement while criticizing human rights advocates for failing to empathize with the victims of drug abuse and their families.
“Wala ka ng mukha—anong ipakita mo sa mga babae? ‘Follow me! This is how to be a woman of the world.’ Iyan ang mahirap,” he added.
Senator De Lima last week led Senate investigation on alleged extrajudicial killings happened under the current Administration.
And also last week, Duterte revealed De Lima linked to the drug lords inside New Bilibid Prison or NBP through her driver-bodyguard namely Ronnie Dayan who was also her alleged lover.
