Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles smells something fishy of Drilon’s proposal to appoint detained former DOJ Sec. Leila de Lima to argue for the opposition senators in ICC case before the Supreme Court.
Angeles first raised the issue of de Lima’s track record in arguing before the Supreme Court.
Second, Angeles remarked that it’s very obvious that de Lima want to try something else after getting denied 3 times to temporarily get out of her detention cell because she is a flight risk.
Third, Angeles wants to know what so special about de Lima as to be granted this.
“Nangangamoy naman masyado itong move ng minority senators to have Delima be their lawyer to argue before the SC.
As if naman.
First, ano ba level ng galing ng lola nyo on this issue? Wala namang track record on that.
Second, parang hindi namin nahalata na may at least 3 requests na sya na makalabas:
1. yungfurlough for her son’s graduation
2. request na malipat to hospital arrest.
3. yun motion to attend Senate sessions.
Lahat yon denied. Flight risk kaya ang lola.
And third, why would she be so special as to be granted this? Hmph.”.
Angeles’ Facebook post has spawned various speculations why de Lima wants to argue in the ICC case before the SC. Some are serious, while some are to be taken for their entertainment value.
Ja Nin Yadnug: “Para paraan as if the she has magic in ICC negotiations. Juice colored hindi pwede ang singer druglord sa ICC”
Mong Gallardo: “It all sums up to one.. Para makakuha ng media mileage o makalabas sa kulungan paminsan minsan. 😎”
Ralf Dy: “Hala…ang worse jan baka gawing sarificial lamb..alam nyo naman ang yellow, mahilig sa patay para makuha ang kapangyarihan: ninoy died, cory became president; cory died, noynoy became prexy; jesse died, leni became FVP… see the pattern?”
Ran D Mo: “Pag mailabas Yan patayin Nila tapos Bintang Kay digong……. Yellow moves”
Edwin Isaac: “Sabik na lumabas ang lola, wala yatang saba sa kulungan he3x!😂😂😂”
Ariel Sarmiento: “Kasi nga they are all trying to stay relevant sa laban nila kasi kung wala na silang silbi eh baka i-like na ni puppet master yun lapida nila. Napuna ko kasi modus nila ang gawing bayani o martyr o kaya naman santo ang mga kasamahan nila eh diba bago ka maging bayani, martyr o santo/santa eh dapat patayin ka muna?”
