Sen. Leila De Lima was the former Secretary of Justice of Ex President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. He disclosed from an interview of one TV network in our country that he has no information about the involvement of his former Secretary of Justice now newly elected senator in illegal dr*g trade.
From the interview of GMA news Reporter Sandra Aguinaldo Noynoy quoted "Noong panahon ko, ni chismis na may papasukan si Leila na ilegal, ni chismis wala" [During my administration, there was no rumor that Leila will enter into illegal activity.]
Aquino added “Ang bigat nitong paratang at ako’y umaasa na nandiyan ang proseso, na mapapalabas natin ‘yung buong katotohanan,
“ [It’s a serious allegation and I’m hoping that due process is there and that the truth will come out.]
From this statement he is showing support to his former Justice Secretary and now newly elected Senator, and sometime he was sending text messages and well wishes.
