Some members of the House of Representatives are visiting Senator Leila De Lima at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
The visitors include Albay Representative Edcel Lagman, Magdalo Party-list Representative Gary Alejano, Caloocan City Representative Edgar Erice, Northern Samar Representative Raul Daza, Akbayan Party-list Representative Tomasito Villarin and Ifugao Representative Teodoro Baguilat.
The group arrived in De Lima’s detantion cell at about 10 am on Monday.
Asked for the purpose of the visit, Villarin said they wanted to check the Senator's condition and to talk about the Duterte administration's stand on the West Philippine Sea.
Last May 1, senators belonging to the minority bloc also visited De Lima.
They talked about some legislative bills like the move to revive the death penalty.
The lawmakers also expressed their desire to allow De Lima to attend some important hearings in the Senate.
