Senator Manny Pacquiao wants to expedite the trial of Sen. Leila de Lima
MANNY PACQUIAO – The presidential candidate and senator shared that he wants to expedite the trial of Sen. Leila de Lima, who is now facing multiple charges for what she allegedly did when she was just secretary of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
During the second round of the PiliPinas Debate 2022 on April 3, Pacquiao said that the trial of De Lima should be expedited to free the innocents involved.
Pacquiao also revealed that he talked to De Lima’s ex-boyfriend and driver Ronnie Dayan who admitted that he was the one who delivered the senator’s money that allegedly came from illegal activities.
“Nakausap ko yung partner ni Leila de Lima si Dayan at nagconfess talaga na naghatid siya ng pera. Tumanggap siya ng pera pero mahirap naman po yun kung hindi natin idadaan sa due process parang hindi natin nirerespeto yung Constitution natin,” Pacquiao said.
Apparently, De Lima did not seem to like Pacquiao’s statement.
Pacquiao has not yet responded to De Lima’s tweet to him.
Pacquiao will run for president in the coming May 9, 2022 election together with his runningmate Buhay partylist representative, Lito Atienza.
They will go against the tandem of; Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Doc Willie Ong, Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson and Senator Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.
