De Lima sees Arroyo as among her persecutors

Senator Leila De Lima has tagged former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Arroyo as among the persons who may be behind her persecution.

De Lima suspects, Arroyo could be taking vindictive actions against her for the role she took as Justice Secretary in pursuing the criminal cases against the former chief executive.

The senator said, “alam nyo naman po kung ano ang mga high-profile cases na hinandle ko (you know the high-profile cases I handled). Alam nyo naman ang pagharang ko noong lalabas sana ng bansa ang dating Pangulo (you know how I blocked the plan of the former president to leave the country).”

De Lima added, two senators and a religious sect may also be behind the character assassination against her.

She, however, did not name the lawmakers and the religious group.
