If something happens to me, Duterte is the one responsible—De Lima

Senator Leila de Lima said that she will blame President Rodrigo Duterte if ever something bad happens to her.

De Lima said she received threats and hate messages after her involvement in the illegal drug trade and affair with former security, Ronnie Dayan.

She tagged Duterte as her number one suspect if something happens.

“Kung may mangyari sa 'kin, sino ang number one suspect? 'Di ba siya? And I’m making him responsible if something happens to me,” De Lima said.

“If something happens to me, he is the one responsible, directly or indirectly dahil paulit-ulit nila akong dini-demonize,” De Lima added.

Also, during the House probe, De Lima's cell phone number broadcast to confirm it it was really her contact number. Since then, De Lima confirmed that every now and then, she still received hate messages.

“To me, this is doubly disturbing to me. I take it as a veiled threat. Why all of a sudden babanggitin ako tungkol sa patayan?…Is that a subconscious slip, a sort of a Freudian slip?” De Lima said.

“Alam ko naman 'yan, na I’m always on top of his mind. 'Pag sinabi niya yung droga, you can be sure na ako yung isusunod niya. But this is the first time na nagbabanggit siya about patay,” the senator added.

But President Duterte said that he never ordered policemen to kill De Lima.

“Magtanong ka ng isang pulis dito kung may sinabi ako na patayin mo ‘yang si De Lima o patayin mo ‘yang si ano. I never ordered. Ang sinabi ko lang… Remember that I declared war. I did not declare any just police punitive action. No, no, far from it,” Duterte said.

De Lima and Dutere have been at odds with each other since De Lima was chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), which initiated an investigation into the supposed summary killings in Davao City. Duterte was the city mayor then.
